    I know it's expensive, but at least he hasn't gone the way of Neil Young. I remember wanting to see Neil in Seattle a few years ago at the Paramount, and face value tickets were like $250-350 USD each!

    Damn. This is the first time since 1996 I am genuinely thinking of not attending a pearl jam related visit to Europe or the UK. Last time I had a gcse exam the next day and couldn't justify it. I was thinking a long weekend in Amsterdam and one of the London shows. One London show could well be it and even then that's an expensive night out. :s Chris Cornell at the Albert hall last year was £55 plus fees. Granted that is before 52% decided it was a good idea to devalue the pound but still. It's clearly first world problems on my part and there is nothing wrong with someone charging the going rate for their services. If the tickets were cheaper then scalpers would be making the money and I can't get with that. Like I said maybe one show rather than spoiling myself.

    I don't think he can do no wrong but I also think every one of these tickets is going to sell out at the price listed. I just don't fault him for getting what he can get when he can get it. That is how most everyone of us approaches our finances and careers.

    Commonly known as greed.

    The majority of us aren't in a position to sell our services to 1000s of people at the same time. Yes you can try and get a better job but it doesn't compare to selling a ticket for a gig.

    Was 100% in..saw the ticket price...I'm out.

    what price would you pay?
    between 45-60€ is the right price
    when u saw pj last time at this price?
    not at festival..
    cos oslo was 152 dollars per ticket 3 years ago..italy was 100 per ticket
    add now that are small venues eddie plays and not 50k stadium..
    Milan 2014 was 60€.

    From the 6 shows i saw in europe in 2014 the most expensive was Berlin @ 74€.

    The Oslo tickets were a wedding gift so i dont know who much they were but if my memory serves me right this is what we paid(our honeymoon was seeing PJ around Europe) :

    Amsterdam 55€ each night
    Milan 60€
    Vienna 50€
    Berlin 74€
    dude,,are u kidding me???
    i went to allt he shows u put the prices,,

    amsteram was..was 188 usa dollars the 10c pair.andf was the cheapest of all tour.do u know how much is 188 usa?
    177 euros..that makes it makes it 86 euros per ticket
    we are taslking about 10c tix..

    ticket prices
    milan : pair 240 usd 120 dollars per tix aka 113 euros per ticket
    Trieste: 233 usd -116 dollars per tix aka 113 euros per ticket
    Vienna :211 usd 105 dollars per tix aka 99 euros per ticket
    Berlin : 228 usd -114 dollars per tix aka 107 euros per ticket
    Stockholm 278 usd - 139 dollars per tix aka 131 euros per ticket
    oslo : 304 usd -152 dollars per tix aka 143 euros per ticket


    thats the prices i paid for 10c tix

    Are you not excusing yourself for doing it while simultaneously accusing Eddie of greed?

    I can't believe those prices. I just can't believe it's £120 a ticket for Amsterdam for a solo act small venue gig. £100 a ticket for London.

    It's not worth it out of principle for me. Maybe I'll cave and just afford one London date but still, what a sour taste. What a conflict that is with the feeling and vibe of the previous EV shows I've been to.

    There are other ways... No way does an artist in EV's position have to be charging that much.

    So you want the scalpers to make all the money?
    Come on. Scalpers will still go to town on these shows. You think high ticket prices is away of stopping ticket scalping? Let's not get into a bigger issue of ticket companies actively supporting scalping all the time and how to stop that... Irrelevant to this issue.

    Other big acts at the same venues aren't charging this much. This is being scalped directly with no chance of getting a fair price in the first place!
    Iron Maiden just had huge success in keeping the number of tix going to touts to a minimum.

    Level 1 is going to be impossible. Level 2 is where it's at with the view of the city imo. It doesn't look like you will have a bad seat in the house .

    Are you not excusing yourself for doing it while simultaneously accusing Eddie of greed?
    if you can point to where I've done that it would be helpful.

    Your attempt at a comparison using jobs and careers isn't a valid one. A better comparison would be more akin to PJ starting out in the smaller venues and working their way up to arenas/stadiums. All perfectly acceptable and I wouldn't expect to pay the same for PJ show in 2017 that I did in 1993. Same as you would do in your job/career where you start on the lower rung and work your way up over a number of years to a better job. I don't see how you could be accused of greed in that scenario.

    A more valid comparison would be the times I've had tickets for gigs where i could have sold them for many times their value. PJ shows at the Astoria and Shepherds bush are relevant to this discussion. On both occasions i sold them at face value to a PJ fan. If i was being greedy i could have sold them to the highest bidder but i would have felt I'd ripped them off. By the same token PJ could have sold the tickets at a much higher price but chose not to.

    In Eddie's case on these shows he is charging what I consider to be an exorbitant price, way above what he has previously charged and also way above what a lot of much bigger acts are currently charging. That I consider to be greed. You may consider it something else and that's your opinion.
  • Generally the tickets are not to expensive, as long as they keep selling.
    But come on...we are not at the opera. Why not auction all tickets ? Artist and promoter will maximize their income and get the audience they deserve.
    Very disappointed, first time thinking of not going. It's not that I can not afford, I just don't want to pay these mad prices.

    I caught both nights in London last time, was well worth £50 a ticket.

  • wookieboywookieboy Posts: 19
    So I'm excited about the possibility of seeing Eddie live in London again. Would love to go to both shows so thinking of entering the lottery for both.

    Trouble is these are effort a pair as usual and on this occasion if I am lucky to get a pair I will have to go on my own as someone will have to stay at home with my daughter.

    So what's the deal with a spare ticket?

    Or should I take my chances in the general sale.

    Last time I won tickets in the lottery for the apollo show in 2012 they weren't the best, but at least I was in the room.

    How is it not valid? Eddie is charging a rate he can get. Again, every ticket will sell. If you could double your hourly rate or your salary you would, would you not? That you cannot is irrelevant to my point. Either both are greed or neither is greed. Saying one is and one is not is applying a hypocritical double standard.

    The closest comparison to Eddie and his ticket prices is you and your salary, not what you do with extra concert tickets.

    You can enter both but you can only get tickets for one show so no harm in entering both.

    Prices are ridiculous but worth it in my opinion seeing as it's been 5 years since the last Euro tour, hoping for both London dates and Dublin in the pre-sale

    Ha good point. Nothing beats a live performance yet people will pay high dollars for a poster. Nothing wrong with it, but cant complain about the shows being the same amount.
