I'm kind of to the point that I don't know if I really want to see any band playing some huge hall for like 60-100 a ticket. Unless you drop serious cash, you just end up watching them on TV. I think I realize it just kind of sucks. Haven't been to a shed show in a couple years. I guess the last one was maybe Tom Petty a few years back in the lawn and those are even going pretty expensive anymore. I'd probably go to a festival type show with a bunch of bands at one of those places, but it's just too expensive for what you are get. Buddy of mine paid $180 for seats to Van Halen in Louisville from seats that Andre Dawson couldn't have hit the stage with a baseball. No thanks, might as well just wait and buy a DVD - it's about the same experience. That said, I don't mind paying 20-30 bucks to see a band in a club if it is someone good and there are plenty that still play at that level that are fine groups. I guess the sad thing is saying good bye when a band you like moves to that next step, which kind of happens.
