  • Is Journey really worth an $80 arena seat?

    After ticketmaster charges, nosebleed seats are $30-50, relatively poor midlevel seats are $70, and floor/club/decent lower and mid-level seats are $80. They have seats in row H on the floor available if I want to Go Large. The wifey would love to see 'em (thinking Xmas present here), but I don't think she'd like 'em that much, when there's so much jewelry and books and whatnot that are fun to unwrap. What do YOU think? Thanks!

    I've been thinking about seeing Journey and Heart together later this month. I never thought about tickets being that high. Not for a band without the original singer.
    My friends have big houses and new cars. I own music equipment.

          Say JAFH, might that avatar be Harry the Bastard, manager of the local Rumbelows store, disguised as a South African vampire?

            I can't stand watching Neal Schon play. I'd skip it for that reason alone.

              For that kind of $$$, you can buy all their CDs.

                  If you paid me $80, I probably still wouldn't go see Journey. Sorry.

                    I'm not cool. And so even though I listen to Javanese gamelan, African field recordings from the 1940s, obscure dub, indie bands, bizarre experimental stuff, and Silverlake hipsters think I have cool CDs and LPs, I'm just not all that cool.

                    And here's partially why.

                    I'm gonna stick my neck out and announce that I actually like Journey. Both Journey before Steve Perry, when they were more, I don't know, "semi-proggy," as well as with him. Yes, Steve Perry-era Journey are corporate paint-by-numbers rock. Yes, the music's often schmaltzy. Yes, the trite storybook lyrics bite major ass.

                    Whether it's because it brings back a lot of great memories or because I actually like the music, I'm not entirely sure. And I realize it's totally uncool.

                    That said, I would not go to see Journey. The new singer, sure, he can sing, but...I dunno...why?

                    Here. Watch this video instead. This is the funniest music video you'll see all month!!!!

                      I can still hear those songs ringing in my head from all the 80s airplay they got. The really good stuff on their first two albums never got much airplay.

                          I liked some of the Greg Rollie stuff at one time, I suppose.

                            Depends on you and your wife really. If she wouldn't love it, than spend your money elsewhere.

                            Sounds pricey to me. Especially since they're touring with that fake singer.
