So, the only way to get in front of the stage is to pay the best part of £300 once you include fees?
I’m sure I’ve seen gigs where they have say half of the front of the stage closed off as a golden circle. But this is way different.
Imagine if you were a teenage superfan, you get a £90 ticket for xmas and you know it cost your parents a significant amount of money especially once you include getting to London for the day… and then you’re unable to get even remotely close to the stage. Not to mention the risk that the areas close to the stage could be full of people who are less engaged with the artist than the average person in general admission, more likely to talk over it. Might not be great for Adele too.
Can things like this ever be justified?
Have you ever been to a gig where the general admission doesn’t get you to the front of the stage even if you turn up really early?
Have you ever seen prices that high for a VIP section? I haven’t.
