    No amount of money is too much to hear "Another Brick In the Wall" for the gazillionth time.

    One ticket to see Waters perform The Wall, which IMO is the worst PF album anyway.

    The VIP package (I don't know what it includes) is $762. Or you could settle for the Premium Package for only $507 dollars. That's each person BTW, not a pair.

    I think I'll use the money to make a car payment and watch the movie instead.

    Or you could go the cheap route & just get/take some of these while listening to the CD.

    this amount is extreme, and hypocritical given Waters' anti-capitalist stance

    I doubt I'll buy the DVD either

    The real best part of The Wall is the backing guitar work all over it by Lee Ritenour!

    That's insane................we are still trying to pull out of a global recession.
    I don't wish anyone a bad tour but, they deserve to realize slow sales at those prices.

    Oh, I have to disagree with that!

    I want to see him flying back to jolly old England with his tail between his legs. He's a first class jerk to begin with, and asking for that kind of money to see his washed-up ass playing tunes that grew stale 15 years ago seals the deal. He's lower than pond scum.
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    I find it funny that all of these so called "anti-Capitalist" front men are making a $$$killing$$$ with their products. That sounds like Capitalism at its finest. I'm more of a David Gilmour fan anyways.

    Stay off the drugs!

    Quite possibly, but it's very close.

    At least with Rush you are seeing a trio of fine musicians, despite the tired catalogue. To be in Geddy's presence is worth money IMO.

    Waters' moody and "intellectual" music is tiring and boring, as I'm sure his stage show must be. All lights and nonsense that has nothing to do with music, to cover for his pylon-ish-ness.

    I guess this makes the Eagles ticket seem like a deal when one considers there are 4 or 5 stars to be seen.

    All quite comical.
