Seriously? You really complaining about this costing 75 bucks? Each night will be priceless. Sounds like you should save a buck and hit the big wu show since you aren’t into seeing legends on stage together. What decade are you living in? Pretty sure concerts cost more than they did 10 years ago and this will be nothing shy of epic.

Santana with the funky meters opening at UNO in 97 or 98 at jazzfest. Probably 35 bucks. With Santana not page the lawn boy. That was epic. 75 is just hoping that enough tweeker guidos from NJ and Long Island make the trip down and don’t realize there’s 50 other amazing shows to see that night.

It comes to 86 dollars with the service fees, 100 bucks if you want the tickets mailed to you. That, I’d say, is a bit steep, for this decade as for any other. It’s more than a phish show.
