March - Jesus Jones (rescheduled from June '23, $72 after taxes and fees for 4th row center seating)
May - Judas Priest ($90 after taxes and fees for back-half nosebleeds in a smaller venue???)
October - Iron Maiden ($300 after taxes and fees for a moderately close second-row side section arena seat?!?!)
Not sure how the Priest ticket is going to work out -- I've never been to the venue before, so the side balcony seat could be pretty decent or could be not so great. Figured I should see Priest live at least once before they call it quits. Probably should've caught them last time with Queensrÿche instead, but Sabaton will have to do...
Not willing to pay more than $100/ticket for anything other than Bruce or Maiden at this point, and I'm still pretty steamed about the price of the Maiden ticket. Oh well.
Ticket prices are getting fairly ridiculous. I will be going to see Tool in London with a mate next year (I like the band, he is a big fan) and we have paid £104 for each ticket. Let's hope the show is worth the price of admission!
