    Other HOB venues are listing the $75 ticket price. So is the local AEG venue near me. They all appear to have the $100 at the door price also. That should "encourage" people to get tickets before hand.

    Concord Music Hall lists the ticket price at $75 + $7.99 in service fees.....+ $1.50 for Facility Maintenance Fee.

    They charge an absurd of a ticket price because absurd people will pay that price to see them.

    Wow.......agreed, if supply and demand dictates it, sure.........I will be completely shocked if 1600 people spend over $80 in Chicago to see Manowar.

    Ticket price does suck. But it's less than I paid to see Maiden and that was totally worthwhile. Not that I like Manowar better than Maiden, but like Jason said - they charge it cuz they know we'll pay it.

    I couldn't possibly imagine paying half of what it costs to get a PPUSA ticket to see Manowar.

    Well, since I flew all the way to Germany to see them (I gave up on seeing them in the USA) and payed over $75 for a ticket there, the ticket price sure won't keep me from going this time. Hail and Kill!

    I could be totally wrong here, but didn't Manowar do east coast shows like a year or two ago that flopped (or at least, didn't sell out)? That might explain the lack of Northeast shows.

    Did it flop, or did it just not sell out?

    I have seen them twice in the last ten years in the states and for sure did not pay 75 bones. I can't recall the exact price but I doubt it was more than 40-45ish.

    idk that's why i'm asking, also depending on how much they asked for those could be mutually exclusive things!

    Gotcha. I honestly think if the fans decided to boycott a Manowar tour due to the obscene prices they charge, it would send a nice message to Mr. MoneyHungryDeMayo.

    But it seems that their fans adore getting his balls rubbed all over their faces, :lol:, so he will continue charging those prices. Just because he can.

    Think about it... It's not like they bring a huge stage show, play at super expensive venues, have A-list musicians in their lineup...

    Fuck, Maiden has cheaper tickets than that for crying out loud.

    I saw them in both Boston and NJ. I'd guess Boston drew close to 1,000 and NJ probably the same. Hard to say whether they consider that a flop or not for a U.S. date. Still, I can't imagine they're going to draw more in Royal Oak, MI than they would in Philly or NYC.
