If there is a big problem in the music industry we’re having today that is Live Nation. I hate Live Nation. They’re trying to take over the concert industry for sure so they can raise the ticket pricing on everything and make more money. That is why I stopped going to SPAC concerts in Saratoga Springs ’cause Live Nation took over and ticket pricing at SPAC went way up. It’s Live Nation making concert tickets so high these days. It’s ridiculous. Live Nation is cancerous to this industry.
I don’t go to national concerts anymore. Too expensive for my taste. I remember in the old days… I used to go to national concerts all the time ’cause why? That’s when they used to be “affordable” but now tickets are getting priced for a couple of hundred dollars or more. Back in the 70’s and 80’s, I remember concert tickets used to cost like $5.00 – $10.00. In the 90’s, concert tickets were around $10.00 – $20.00. In the early 2000 years, concerts costed like around $30 – $50.
Concert tickets today? Now they are costing you like $250 or higher. Fucking bullshit if you ask me.
I love live music, yes but I’m not gonna go to national concerts as long as the ticket pricing is too high. I think Live Nation is ruining live music and you can blame ticketmaster too. I hate ’em both really.
If you wanna see live music, best thing to do is to go to a bar or a club to see some local band downtown.
Such a damn shame how overpriced national concerts are these days. The music industry don’t care about you at all. It’s money is all they care about.
