Thanks for the videos. Very cool insight into the setup. Also makes me glad that I'm still able to see him in small venues here. I'm definitely not looking forward to the day he moves into larger arenas here.
To add on to some of the posts about putting things into perspective: I paid $7.50 to $10.00 to see my first Van Halen, Def Leppard, ZZ Top, etc shows. Don't expect to pay that now (or 10 years ago), though Joe's been doing this for over 20 years now. Hell, If I was making the same money at my job that I was making 20 years ago, I'd Quit!
Great point !!!!!!
Yeah. I don't know what JB takes as his bottom line, but if my wages had risen 66% in a year then I'd be a lot happier than I am, what with having 1.5% over the last three years.
I'm a Management Accountant I can't see anything that warrants such a rise in prices (from £50 to £83 for top tickets) between two years.
If you told most people you were gong to see Joe Bonamassa they'd say "Joe Who" if you then said that you'd paid £83 for a ticket they'd say "You're 'avin a Giraffe"
What if your costs had risen a similar amount? Or maybe you're like the others who think Joe doesn't deserve to make more money and come to his site to #@$@# about prices? One that you KNOW he reads and posts on. I just don't get the complaining.
