Not bad seats either.. Just wasn't gonna pay 125 bucks to get that close but these are right there.. Small venue so it should be all good.

Tickets are still available on Ticketmaster for the Las Vegas show but it's a little ridiculous that they're over a hundred dollars each.

it is ridiculous but not so much for Vegas.. Overpriced everything over there.. But here in Columbia, MD...125 dollars for a ticket?? now that is just stupid...

I got 2nd row loge on the right side which is right behind the first sections in front of the stage.. mind you a not big venue for 75 dollars.. That was my limit..

I've never paid that much for a show here, especially at The Joint.

Not even close.

Actually, now that I think about it, the only show I've ever paid that much for in Vegas was the last time I saw Duran Duran here

I was at the show at the joint. It was like 90 dollars I think. I bought the mid priced seats this time. Still about 90 bucks after ticketbastard fees but i don't need to be in the orchestra pit at Nokia.

DD always prices their tickets high. It kind of irks me but I guess if they can get it, they're gonna charge it.

my mom has seen tons of shows at merriweather, having grown up in that area. she told me that she remembers seeing all sorts of bands when she was my age - now she did just go sit on the lawn - for $5!! the lawn prices were like what, $75 or something? utterly ridiculous.

Concert tix are just ridiculously priced these days, especially with the economy. I didn't buy tix for DD, or that other show one4u2. They are still priced out of this world

lol, oops. still, that's eight times as much as when she saw people. granted that was a long time ago, but still...i wouldn't pay $40 just to sit on the grass

don't even get me started on the prices of their vip packages!! those are astronomical! they're usually between $300-400. for one ticket. i mean yeah you get primo seats, a chance to meet the band, and other crap, but come on. i'd rather pay half that and just get the good seats. i got the vip seats one time and the merchandise was a lame ass towel. oooooh, big deal. and duran duran and U2 are the two bands i like most that i couldn't care less about meeting. with duran duran it's like...if it happens, it happens. if i were to find out i could go behind the building and catch them as they left, sure i'd be like "hey can i have your autograph?" but that's about it. U2 are just so huge i don't even want to bother, since it'd be me and 5000 other fans trying to get an autograph. no thanks.
