Top-price tickets at $154 + service? You've got to be kidding me.

Yeah, I'd love to go but c'mon....These prices are outrageous. I also wanted to get Stevie Wonder tickets until I saw how much they were.

Didn't they just do something like this at Lincoln Center?

It's not just the top-price tickets that are $154, the LOGE is $154. Not just the front row, row D in the loge will set you back to $154. I didn't even try looking at balcony seats, the one pull I did for the lowest-price seats put me in the back of the balcony and that's not worth it.

So that is why this show is not sold out. is it even a benefit?

There are floor seats (not center orch) for the lesser price of $104 each (plus fees). If you factor in the 16 artists mentioned here - price per artist ain't too bad. There's mention of further special guests (which may or may not be true) and the OST does feature lots of other intriguing artists (Antony, Karen O, Malkmus). I would imagine with all these musicians, and the scope of songs they have to choose from, that this will be a good 3-hour show.

Not cheap - but a potentially very special evening.

it's for charity you idiots

What our polite friend Joe is trying to say is that all proceeds for this show go to 826 National - a nonprofit that tutors kids in reading and writing.

Although I don't recall this info being presented when the show was first announced. Maybe it's an attempt to try to move more tickets at this late date. Also note - Cat Power is no longer featured as a performer for the show:

I was in the back of the balcony (which was packed), my understanding was that the orchestra was pretty sparse with people. Calexico, My Morning Jacket and The Roots really stole the show. More so the later two. The rest was mediocre at best unfortunately.

there was absolutely no flow, what with everyone coming on for one song before they left the stage. that said, the performance from the roots was so phenomenal that it was pretty much worth the large price of admission alone.

oh, and j mascis was there playing his trademark distorted guitar solos with the million dollar bashers...
