I would like to go but it is expensive!?

why do these aged fuckers charge so much for tickets? it is not like they are the hot thing anymore. I guess it all comes after stupid middle age fans are willing to pay that much cash.
at least Madonna puts on a kickass show...

seriously? $150 - $75 for Duran Duran?

For $5, I'll kick you in the nuts. Same outcome, but much cheaper. Let me know.

Duran are a fantastic live band. I didn't care for their last album, but I'm excited about this new one. They're playing their whole new album live at these shows, electro sets..etc - pretty cool if you ask me.

These prices are very reasonable.

75 bucks for a 2hr+ show on broadway is expensive? since when? I'll save the orch seats for those who want to scream, I just want to hear the tunes

Apparently, this show is being produced by renowned Broadway agent Max Bialystock.

Duran Duran are always very artistic, creative and different..I think these shows will be very good. I will plan to go. As for that stupid Anonimous person commenting that they're old and not worth the money..Honey, they look better and sound better and have more taste than any of the new stupid bands out there.

Are these really gonna sell that well? 9 shows is kind of ambitious, considering they're playing new stuff a lot of people won't want to hear. Plus, high ticket prices and the fact that this band hasn't been relevant in years.

A band playing in a Broadway venue is a significant development. I think it is a great idea whose time has come.

You kids whine about ticket prices can keep going to stand and stare but when you get a little older you appreciate a seat and a little comfort. You think $40 bucks to see a veteran band is too much? I guess you never go to Broadway. ..I mean there’s something to whine about!

As a result, Broadway theatres are often empty and rock shows may be a way to realize revenue with an older, financially able audience. (Duran Duran fits this demographic) Why not book several bands to do a short set several times a day like Murray The K used to? Combine some stand up act to MC and a tattooed stripper …you end up with a vaudeville revival!
Someone please hire me to be an impresario!

The unjust cost of tickets have led me to commit apostasy.

Why should people with less money be excluded from the live concerts?

I would have LOVED to have seen Duran Duran at a venue smaller than Madison Square Garden, but could not afford to purchase tickets for Duran Duran's concerts at the Barrymore TheatreinNovember 2007.

After supporting the Duran Duran by buying hundreds of board games and Japanese picture books as a child, I feel as if I'm getting screwed as an adult.

I feel so debarred by Duran Duran that I cannot humiliate myself further by purchasing their new album.
