    Not nearly as bad as I expected. Good!

    Still, it's more than any of us ever paid to see the real Floyd, isn't it?

    i paid something like $140 to see gilmour a couple of years back at madison square garden. and those were for seats in a different zip code than the stage.

    Yeah, that's solo though and more recent.

    But how much did anyone pay to see Floyd in '94? 50 bucks, tops?

    ^ I'd have to check the stub, but I bet it was less than that.

    Probably about six bucks in '75.

    I paid $32.00. But that was before the industry revenue model changed, so the comparison really isn't fair.

    And back then it was like "Oh, Floyd is touring for the Division Bell. Cool."

    Now it's "Holy crap, we better catch this while these people are still alive" mixed with "Holy SHIT they're playing WHAT?"
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    Chicago prices are $57.50 - $157.50.

    I think I paid around $170 for my David Gilmour ticket last round.

    To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of the early Floyd stuff, but there's something quite unique about what Mason is doing here and it has my attention. It seems like if you miss it you won't get another chance.

    Face value for The Wall show in NY in the early 80's was like 20 bucks. I scalped from a legal scalper the day after they went on sale , 4th row for 75 each , which was a lot back then. The guy didn't know what they were going to be worth. The crap seats at the show were well over 250 .
    I don't remember what the 90's shows went for but IIRC it was The Who ,who first had ridiculous prices.

    I believe good/great tickets for Pink Floyd in 1994 at RFK were around $80 each which at the time was probably one of the more expensive shows we saw.

    $8 in Jersey City in 75. My first Pink Floyd show. Ticket prices are ridiculous these days but these are cheap compared to other shows I've seen such as David Gilmour or Waters.

    So...just did the Livenation presale for DAR. The best seats were $325 each. Yeah, no.

    Went for the next bit back, row O. Still damned expensive, but....YOLO I guess.

    Just glad ticketbastard didn't block us all out and mysteriously all suddenly appear on the tout sites at triple the price.
