Thankfully, my favorite musical act plays for free in our local city park once each summer as they are from here. Otherwise, their concerts are too expensive and I would never be able to see them.

If it's the fellow from the same era as the Stones, everything I've heard you get your money's worth.

Depends on the locale. I would not pay big money to sit in the back of some huge stadium, but I would pay to see SRV (resurrected?) in a smaller intimate setting.

Jimmy Buffet is another good show. I think it would be fun to see him from someplace where you could raft up in sail boats and rock out.

I'd love to see Pink Floyd with Waters and Gilmour together and I consider paying $100+ per ticket for that. But that isn't going to happen so I don't have to worry about it.

Funny you say that... last paid concert I went to... worse show ever. Had I know how lame it was going to be I would have told my friend "No I ain't paying to see that jerk and his lousy band".

Sorry the music is not good. The "fans" were just horrible - all drunk or stoned out of their mind, rude and obnoxious. I could not wait to leave! The only good thing is that everyone was talking so loud I could not hear the music.

Pretty much to me most live concerts are a waste of time and money... rude obnoxious fans keep you from hearing the music... now I will pay decent money for a symphony or musical since crowds there tend to be civilized and quiet.

Now if I could have a private concert with the original Beatles I would pay several thousand dollars for that!

Been to quite a few Buffett shows. Usually tons of fun. Parrotheads are a different breed. We have as much fun in the parking lot as in the concert. One time, we took balloons, the kind you make ballon art out of and spent most of the night making silly hats and swords and stuff for anyone who wanted one.

Sorry to hear your experience was not good.

Doin it. I am in Edmonton tonight and headed to the show. Tickets were either $225 and $620. I like McCartney, but just couldn't part with 600+ for the floor.

While I always liked Jimmy, I saw him at my bosses house in Barbados a few years back. The concert for 200 people was fun, Buffet was a dud.

Better private concerts were Bryan Adams, Van Halen and Meatloaf.

A tad over $50 each to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in Phoenix on 1 November. I am hoping it is one of the highlights of our trip.

I am just reading one of his books, about Pirates and flying boats. I am enjoying it. But while I am familiar with the name, I couldn't tell you the words or tune to any of his songs.

If it is McCartney, then after the Olympics show, I would give it a miss. Sometimes, these old guys just need to fade into the background and be happy with that. But that's just my opinion, and I hope you do enjoy the show.

$1,000,000 ... however I'd get way more bang for my buck than most. The show would have to start out with resurrecting Freddie from the grave ... which would be fantastic!!!

I was thinking of passing but I have heard he is on form this tour so I am treating it as a last chance to see one of the legends.

My personal favorite was John Prine after the throat cancer in a 200 seat theater.

I would do terrible things that would haunt me for eternity to have the chance to sit in a small space with Neil Young in concert.

You are very nationalistic Canucker.
Only thing to top those two is if you're a season ticket holder to Leaf games and shop at Roots.

After each of his recent concerts in Australia, the artist previously known as Prince (or just plain Prince) would go to a cafe and do an impromptu performance. I'd really like to be in one of those... Raspberry Beret has something uniquely alluring for me, and he apparently is a consummate entertainer.
