When I was shopping for my Spamalot tickets I checked three different places (including the site for the theatre it is playing at.) Now that I have my tickets I have determined there is a fucking 150% markup for buying these things online.

You should try buying NFL tickets. I got 100-level tickets for yesterday's Balitmore / Pittsburgh game: $370 for a pair of $65 tickets.

Check www.stubhub.com for prices also.

Or watch in the comfort of your own home for free, no traffic, no long lines, clean (depending on who you are) bathrooms, etc. Wink And definitely cheaper food...

The experience was definitely worth it. If you haven't seen NFL live, you're missing out.

I'm not the sort to go see sporting events but I will agree it's more fun live than it is on TV

See, I'd rather sit at home - you can see so much more, and there's no stress about traffic and parking, and you don't pay $5 for a hot dog

We pregamed, so the only thing we had the whole game was a bottle of water, a bottle of soda, and an order of chicken strips / fries.

In any event, the stadium was great because it got L O U D there! Quite awesome.

Well in any event, enough with the thread hijacking. Yeah, I've heard that Spamalot tix have a premium right now because everyone wants to see it with the original cast.

It's not that I'm complaining about .. I do think 100 bucks is worth a ticket .. (I ordered front row mezzanine but ended up with 3rd row from the back, orchestra section)

It's that I got charged $250 for a $100 ticket that pisses me off ... plus the service fees .. plus shipping and handling ..

That's because Ticketmaster has made the American public their bitches.

The only way it will change is if everyone stops using those services ... or possibly if a scrupulous businessman removes the floor of the market a few notches with fair prices ...
