When I was a kid a concert ticket was roughly about the same price as an album give or take a dollar or two.
My very first concert was Pink Floyd in 1975 at the Atlanta Stadium and I believe the cost of the ticket was $8.50. I know I paid $10.00 to see Led Zeppelin two years later at the Omni when I was in High School.
In those days bands toured in order to sell records. Now they sell CDs in order to tour.
This chart shows how concert revenue has increased while recorded music revenue has declined:
The most I ever paid for a concert ticket was $125 for Paul McCartney at Philips Arena in 2002.
That's about ten times the cost of a CD.
So what's the most and what's the least any of y'all have ever paid for a concert ticket?
