Ticket prices don't go down if people buy them. If fall out boy does an arena tour and tickets are $250...is that ok?
And the "pit" at the UC show is $1500 a ticket face price. It's absolutely absurd. Do I actually think people will boycott? No, it was an exaggerated statement. But to say its the dumbest thing you've ever read? Come on. I'd say reading face value of tickets at $600-$1500 certainly rivals it
Sure it's OK if FOB charges $250 for a ticket. Would it make some people mad, namely a lot of people in this thread? Sure.
But if the market price for those tickets -- the price that people are willing to pay, is $250 -- then why don't they charge that much? Why charge $50, let scalpers buy them all, then let scalpers make that additional $200 per ticket instead of the band?
