    Am I alone in thinking that $39.50 is a bit much to see them? I dig LaTorre on vocals.. but damn. Hell, I think it's a tad much to see them in any form. Some locations are $22, I'd pay that in a heartbeat. I'm now leaning heavily towards not seeing them in Tampa.

    I just saw Doro & Sister Sin for less than half of that. :erk:

    I agree, seems a bit steep. Swing over to Orlando for the show at House of Blues on 3/22. That one is a $22 show.

    With the price of gas that wouldn't make any sense at all. Just stay in Tampa and see them.

    Yeah I think that's alot, and it really goes to show you how much money they want versus promoter confidence in how much they can draw.

    Can't.. Saigon Kick is playing that night.

    Plus - i'm still trying to figure out a way to get to PP again this year, it's been too long... add buying a house on that and I have to be a little picky on prices for shows and stuff LOL.

    That's a bit steep.

    The CT show next month (which I'm planning on attending) is actually free... :heh::heh:

    It may be slightly high for a club show, but I have no doubt it will be a great night. Their set list is awesome and I'm sure the energy level will be high being Todd's first hometown show with the guys. Hoping for maybe a song from the upcoming album too....

    If you're worried about 40 dollars, maybe buying a house was not the most intelligent option.

    Pretty judgemental post, IMHO. Every dollar counts, to be honest, so you cut where you can and need to. It's called "budgeting". And if it's someone's first house, yeah, it can be a stretch (was for me, years ago). I had to cut out a lot of "extra" things at the time, which wasn't very intelligent of me (from your perspective).

    Ten years later, I sold the house for twice what I paid for it. I also would have paid more in rent each month than the mortgage, and I got tax breaks while I owned it, so buying it looked pretty damn smart to me. Hopefully it'll work out the same for Creeps.

    That's pretty much what they charged prior to Tate leaving; they really should've adjusted it knowing not as many will be interested. Btw, by no means am I a Tate supporter, it's just a fact that a lot of their supporters won't go because of Tate not being there.

    Not to mention all the ancillary costs that come with home ownership. You can't just call maintenance to have a water heater or AC fixed. You budget differently, and yes that means deciding that some shows just aren't worth the price.

    I make a 0 figure salary, what's your point?

    Anyway, I didn't mean to derail the thread. It just seemed like an absurd notion that it comes down to deciding to not spend $40 for a ticket or financial ruin. I'll show myself out now.

    I paid like $9 a ticket through a local radio station promo here in Phoenix. Maybe there will be something similar in your town. FWIW Todd killed it and I would have paid the $30-40 price with no problem. Fuck Tate.

    deleted post because it's simply not worth any fallout that Glenn would get upset at
