[.....or is this normal? I can't beleive I did this. I just spent $328 on 4 Ozzy/Rob Zombie concert tickets. I looked at a couple different websites and saw tickets for the same show for around $1000. :eek: Ya, that's for 1 ticket. What the hell do you get for a $1000 concert ticket? Hopefully it includes laying horizontally and I'm not speaking of fainting when you see teh bill. Anyone? Do you normally pay that much to go to a concert? -] :confused:

A lot of ticket agencies are buying tickets to resell. If you bought them from the original seller then chances are you got them for the normal price, while the other tickets are essentially being scalped over the internet. :)

That's what I would think, but that may not be the case.

durrell does make a good point.

$328 for 4 Ozzy & Rob, good deal if you ask me. $82 a piece or $41 to see ozzy then $41 to see Rob, still not bad when you break it down.

$82 seems like the real thing to me. Honestly, they probably couldn't sell even the best tickets for more than a couple hundred, and certainly not general admission for a grand each. I don't even see how anyone could possibly have any logical explaination for selling tickets for 1K a pop, unless the show was sold out and there are only a small number of venues on the tour.

You got scammed... Please send me the tickets ASAP for proper disposal :)

I am jealous Drago, that is going to be a good show.

$328 = 4 Zombie/Ozzie Tickets

$1000 = 1 Hannah Montana Ticket

You got suckered man I hate to break it to you but unless you dump your bank account on the tickets you will not get the full Prince of Darkness experience. ;)

Concert = Detroit
DRAGON = Florida

These are Christmas presents for my kids. If I had a spare $500-$600 I'd fly there and go with them. I asked because I went to a Velvet Revolver(G-N-R + STP front man)/Alice In Chains concert about a month ago with my middle son and his g/f and I think the tickets were like $15(they paid). These tickets are extremely inflated compared to those. I got the tickets from Ticketmaster. The $1000 tickets seemed preposterous. I've never paid even close to $100 a ticket. I may be just a little out of touch on this subject -

Have see Ozzy a few times but never Rob Zombie. I'd like to see both at a concert similar but for this price, a couple cd's will do lol - :o

Will you adopt me? :D

Seriously, that's one heck of a Christmas gift. I think that for what you paid, the kids being able to see two of the biggest names in rock together is more than worth it.
