Ok so you get a video game, 2 bands and enter tournaments where some asian kid keeps killing you 2 seconds in? Yeah, that's not worth it.
$150-$70 for the game someone was gonna buy anyways = $80 dollars. $80-$30 for dropkick murphys tickets = $50. kanye tickets are at least 100.
so if you were keeping up, not even including the racist comment about the tournaments, we are at +$50 in terms of value. on top of that, part of your ticket cost goes to charity, they have a paintball field set up, you get to play mw3 multiplayer before anyone else, and if you want to get killed by the asian kid (or, shocker! someone is better than you and wont die in 2 seconds) you can enter the $1 million tournament (which adds to the value)
so the biggest expense would be travel, and thats why i said it would be worth it if you lived in the area (and a lot of people live in LA) it may not be worth it to YOU personally, but that doesnt mean that the ticket prices arent worth it for other people. think before you speak.
