Garth Brooks is well knows for his cheap ticket prices but apparently there's more to the story when you see the prices for his VIP experience. With a few bangles tossed in with a premium seat the prices run from $2500 to $3500 per seat. I guess performing 5-11 shows in each city doesn't generate enough cash to pay the bills.

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.

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!

Building a new stadium does not always buy you fans. Take the San Francisco 49ers and their new billion plus stadium and expensive seats for instance. Only a few years removed from the Super Bowl they are struggling to sell tickets, in this case preseason tickets that are being reduced through the online discount seller, Goldstar.

Lower level seats for the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys are reduced to $120, down from $150 each. The problem for them is that ticket brokers are one step ahead of them and they have lower level seating running closer to $110 per seat.

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.
