I was at the Market on Saturday picking up a few things..  There was this big line-up..

 When I asked what the line-up was for I thought about Mike.. Mr Soul..

 Judging by the size of the line .. Neil is a popular guy around here.. I know He plays quite a bit in Montreal to sell-out crowds.

  The tickets are anywhere from   85.00    to   160.00    or so..

Still got his first album. I miss the album covers.
My favorite was 'The Loner'

The discussion came up at the coffee shop this morning..  One of the carpenters said the front row seats went within minutes..  He said the front row seats went for 250.00..  The guy in the line-up that I talked to said he woulld be looking for side-stage lower bowl tickets..  I believe that they were the ones that went for 160.00

  Of course..  I asked him if he was a scalper..  He said no.. He is just a big fan..  I think he said he was looking for four tickets..  That's a lot of loonies..  It would take a big coffee can to hold that many..   :p  :laugh:  

 I still don't know the concert date..  The Metro Center ...  Upper/Lower  and Floor will hold .. maybe 15,000

I like Neil Young.  I learned to play guitar with Neil Young songs.

I paid $250 to see Paul McCartney at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.  30 big screens, video presentation for every song. 50 circ de sole-like performers before and after the show.  Fireworks during 'Live and Let Die'.  Incomparable sound system - like listening to a CD, anywhere in a hockey arena.

I paid $50 to see Neil Young's "Greenfield" at the Marcus Ampitheater on the lakefront.  I left after 75 minutes.

I'm sorry, but I don't think Neil could put on a $250 show with his own materiel. And I mean no disrespect.

$250?

Christ on a [email protected]&%ing bicycle! There's families who have less than that a month to live on!

Personally, I think if you have more than enough to keep you and yours alive, you and yours smiling, then you're just a frigging parasite!

Sorry, just an old died-in-the-wool socialist speaking here.   :laugh:

Anyway, Neil Young doesn't have the material?

Listen harder.   :)

The concert paying public is hurting Big Time for Big Name Entertainers to come to town..  The kids get plenty of concerts for their interests..  

 This weekend they are setting up for an outdoor concert with Keith Urban as the Headliner, along with Here For the Party Girl..  What's her name.. ????  Gretchen Wilson..   They are gonna have good weather so the forecast says..  

 I heard some one say they will break even if they sell 20,000 tickets..  They got space for 100,000 people..  But who's gonna stand out in whatever weather all day..  for the warm-up acts to do their appearances..  

 If I remember, those tickets start off at some 85.00 - 90.00 each..

and I'd play all day everyday.  :)

Buffalo Springfield
Crazy Horse
Crosby Stills Nash and Young
Solo stuff

Political tendencies aside...

I didn't mean to imply that Neil doesn't have enough material, he does have tons of songs.

But for entertainment value, as in paying $250 to see them played live, I don't think his show has the theatrical possibilities to warrant that kind of money.

Speaking of tickets -
I dunno but $200 for going 10 mph over the speed limit
is a little anti-socialist also.
Especially if you get one on the way to a
Niel Young concert.
