My first concert was Styx The Grand Illusion for 5 dollars, the same as an album at the time, so I figured that sounded about right.  When Emerson, Lake & Palmer came to town a few years later on the Works tour, it was 9 dollars, and I thought "Whoa... why so damned expensive?"

Yeah, that's what I mean.  You actually have to save up for tickets now, plan it as your major entertainment for the month or something.  Back then, it was just like buying an album.  It's on a completely different scale.

I remember going out to eat after drinking on the way up of course. :lol  and buying a shirt and tourbook for every show.  Can't do that now.  But for this show I will break the bank to see.

    This.

I pretty much have to strategically plan out my year as to what I can see and can't just because the prices are so high. Like Rush for instance, they are my favorite band in the world and I just spent the last two years saving up the money to see them in decent seats. Then my uncle shows me his PW stub and its like 8 bucks  :sad:

If what I read is true, since becoming a solo artist, Peter Gabriel has NEVER came to St. Louis. >:( :censored :(

I am seriously considering not visiting my gf in Chicago this June so I have money to go on a PG roadtrip in September.  Or maybe I'll get lucky and find some kind of gainful employment in the next few weeks.

Just bought Peter Gabriel tickets.

      Originally going in, I was all gung ho and was like "screw the price, I want to be close, this is a once in a lifetime thing" and then I saw the $170 price for floor seats and was like  :eek

      Ended up going with the middle grade tickets.

Not visiting the girl because cannot afford both girl and concert.

   Yeah seriously.

 I just saw a band last week where the ticket was $15 but after paying the convenience fee and processing fees the total was $30 bucks. The damn fees were the entire price of the ticket. Then they have the balls ask me if I want to insure my ticket for an extra $15 bucks. WTF

My two tickets for DT in july were $99, $130 after Ticketmaster pulled out.  Doubling the price of the ticket though is just fucking ridiculous.

Dude, I recently got SO lucky. I checked with my girlfriend if there was anything happening the weekend of Sep. 7th as I wanted to roadtrip for Rush's opening night. She said no... so I went ahead and bought tickets for myself, sister, and best friend. Then she remembers one of her best friends is getting married on the 8th. Having already bought the tickets it saved me either the begging and dog house of still going to the show, or just deciding to miss it, and I'm very thankful that bullet was dodged.

This.  It brings back good memories whenever I hear it.

Well, I made it there just in time for PG to come on stage, after being stuck in traffic, but the people next to me said there was a short acoustic set of like 4 songs. I didn't see it so I'm not 100% sure of what that actually was.

Ah, that was PG I think.  He played a new song, Come Talk to Me, Shock the Monkey, and Family Snapshot acoustically, I think.

Yes that's it and it was done with the house lights on oddly enough, but that may not have been part of the plan. I was starting to get worried that the whole concert was going to be stripped down acoustic, but then they kicked in the regular versions and killed the lights.

and also, it was kick ass to finally see Tony Levin live. He was incredible. Now I want to see him with KC.

Well gents, looks like it's my turn tonight.

I can honestly say, if I had a live concert bucket list of artist I had to see before i died(ones that were feasible, of course), tonight I would be crossing the last one off that list. Feels good man.

Wow, what a killer concert. It was everything I thought it would be and more. That had to be one of the most emotionally charged vocal performances I have ever seen, by both Peter and the girl who sang with him. Don't Give Up and Mercy Street left me stunned and speechless.

Just a bump to say that I am currently spinning a slab of vinyl that I only recently acquired and had never heard....

Peter Gabriel Plays Live...   of course, his first live album.

I'm only just finishing the first track, and my jaw is already on the floor.    The only PG I've been familiar with are the first album (which I love), the hits (which are hit and miss) and So (which is also only hit and miss).

But one track in, and this live album is already AMAZING.
