Default The price of concert tickets

Okay, I have a confession: I have not been to a large rock concert since the early nineties.

That being said, I can not believe the cost of tickets these days! What the hell happened to the days of $25-$30 seats to a show? C'mon $100.00 and up to see a band play for an hour? What other item has increased so steeply as a concert ticket? If bread was used as a comparison, it would now cost about twelve dollars a loaf!

The price of a general admission ticket has increased worse than a past-due balance on a high interest credit card. Maybe we're not paying for the performance but the private planes and the fleet of tour buses that are "necessary"? I really have no idea.

Does anybody here have an inside working knowledge of the concert/touring world to educate me please?
