Classic rockers have some of the most expensive tickets for their concerts but every once in a while a better deal comes along. Grateful Dead fans can catch the band at Levis Stadium for as low as $21 this weekend while U2 fans have the chance to get tickets for under $40 for tomorrows United Center concert.

Harvey Goldsmith has promoted concerts by the Rolling Stones, Elton John and many more and he sounds off about the live music business. He makes some pretty good points about the price of concert tickets and questions what the future of rock will look like when the old rockers die off.

They've also announced some of the tour openers including Brad Paisley, Ed Sheeran, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr. and more.

Don't look now but there's another music awards show coming and this time from music promoter and venue owner Live Nation. This is for their own self promotion to try and get more fans interested in live music and it would have been better left alone with the number of shows already filling too many time slots. 
The Live Nation Music Awards honoring the best live musical performances of the year will be simulcast on TNT and TBS Oct. 1.   806879

Tickets for the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight are currently going for over $3000 each just to get in the door of a fight that may last close to an hour, or just a few minutes.

Compare that to a week at a luxury hotel in Cancun with food, drink, massages, golf and more all included, for less. No contest!

The Rolling Stones are playing games with fans and this isn't a cheap game to play with. Fans are shelling out record ticket prices for VIP packages and platinum seating that can run over $4000 per seat and thousands of the best seats have been pulled so the band can get much more than the $368 face value of the tickets.

The Rolling Stones tickets sold on the general public on sales have consisted of the worst seats available in the different price ranges while the best are held back for premium $$. No only that but they have been manipulating the prices of VIP seating with their dynamic pricing model to raise prices as demand picks up as if they weren't high enough already.

This is pretty common in the concert business but the sheer number of tickets pulled may be unprecedented especially considering they're going as far as charging $571 for $188 face value tickets that are no  where near the stage. 

Fans looking for the best deals may want to watch the market and see if the prices drop as they have for past Rolling Stones concerts.

Neil Young never shys away from speaking his mind and with his new album, The Monsanto Years, he takes dead aim at corporations including Chevron, Safeway, Starbucks and of course Monsanto for their GMO's. Some of those corporations have responded to the lyrics.
On May 26, Neil Young and his new band the Promise of the Real (featuring Willie Nelson's sons Micah and Lukas) released the video for "A Rock Star Bucks a Coffee Shop," a song from his new album The Monsanto Years (out June 29 on Reprise). The 69-year-old firebrand hasn't lost a step, calling out corporations like Monsanto, Starbucks and Walmart by name over farm policies, GMOs and labor practices. In the interest of hearing from both sides, Bil...

There's an interesting article in Billboardbiz about how the Rolling Stones and Grateful Dead are beating the resellers. It turns out they do it by raising ticket prices through VIP and Platinum seating that comes from large blocks of tickets that once sold for face value.

Not only that they jack the price up so high even ticket brokers often undercut their prices.
Instant sellouts once were a badge of honor, proudly touted as a testament to the demand for a show or tour. But today, it's rare for even the hottest acts to announce that all tickets were sold in less than an hour.

Should public officials be allowed to accept free tickets as in Pasadena where they were given expensive Rose Bowl football and concert tickets to Jay Z and Beyonce?

As one resident put it "“My councilwoman voted to have Jay Z and Beyonce come to Pasadena, and then she gets 12 tickets to the concert? To me that is just a problem,”
Pasadena, Calif., leaders are under the microscope after a newspaper investigation revealed tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of free Rose Bowl football and concert tickets were distributed to city officials last year.  830943

The data shows that it pays to be an aging rocker touring the country relentlessly. Billboard's Top Music Money-Makers list would likely have Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles near the top with their premium ticket prices of over $600  per.

At least Springsteen keeps his at just over $100. a bargain these days.

You've seen the list. Now, check out the data behind this year's top earners in music.

A class action lawsuit has been filed against the New Jersey Devils by season ticket holders after their tickets were canceled for reselling the games they could not attend. This could have a big affect on the other teams currently yanking season tickets from fans that don't resell them on the team site.
The New Jersey Devils was hit with a class action lawsuit for canceling season tickets because they were being resold online, in violation of state law.

It's interesting to see the demand for Grateful Dead tickets for their final concerts without the late Jerry Garcia. Even when they were all together Deadheads would never have considered paying $450 and up for secondary market seats and up to $5000 for face value premium seating.

 It was good while it lasted but memories are much cheaper!
