With those prices Daft Punk must be the house band.

80% white
10% black
5% hispanic
5% Other

I guess the same Idiots that booked Justice at MSG, have set the prices.

it's called "compensating for everyone downloading/file-swapping instead of buying the album"

get used to it, kids.

I hope the scalpers buy up all the tickets and get stuck w/them, I dont know anyone that would pay more than $40 for Kanye

No, Anon. 6:28, it's the result of supply and demand. The ticket prices might be this high even if illegally downloaded tracks weren't an issue.

Posted by Adam Smith | February 19, 2008 6:36 PM

you're right, adam.. but one can also say the demand for $155 tickets is due in part to people having more disposable income from not choosing to buy albums.

more bands should do stuff where you buy the album and then get a code for presale....but not through itunes...i hate those...why would i pay for a shitty mp3.

Wed @ 5pm the pre sale is music

Posted by Tati | February 19, 2008 8:28 PM

there's an earlier presale on Wed, but you have to be a part of his fan club to get it. Anyone??

"I guess the same Idiots that booked Justice at MSG, have set the prices."

yes but people will actually buy these tickets.

genuine Q: folks wouldn't pay $40 Kanye, $20 for the other 3 respectively? (or however you'd divide it proportionately by how "big" they are.) mega lineup seems logical to me.

man, slow news day/week? "AOL band-logo rankings" @ S'gum (srsly??); 3 Idol posts by Idolator (and the night is young)... I'm about to take over HypeM with a track entitled, "What time does Daft Punk go on?"

Posted by G | February 19, 2008 9:00 PM

anyone know the real actual presale code???

Posted by james | February 19, 2008 9:15 PM

The actual big news as far as "on sale now" today is, of course, Ellen Allien and Sascha Funke at Studio B for $12.

The presale code is "why in the hell would you go to this show" and the earlier fan club code is "sucker"

Actually james i like kanye very much. But only idiots go to hip hop shows at arenas and stadiums. They are terrible there.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2008 10:38 PM

him and daft punk should tour together.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2008 11:20 PM

kanye has never received an award from a beatle so im not going to this...

I hear the presale password is the title of the new Nas album. Anyone know what that is?

honestly, $150 is pretty much what i expected. actually i expected like 110/120, but it's not that ridiculous.

you have kanye west, rihanna, lupe fiasco, and NERD. kanye, lupe, and rihanna are easily three of the top 5 artists (sales-wise) in the hip-hop game at the moment, so it makes sense that they would expect people to pay that much to see all of them.

175 for one ticket, this better be so good.

Posted by Tati | February 21, 2008 12:32 PM

kanye fucking sucks...talk about overrated shit...hype machine in overdrive...i saw him get embarrassed in a freestyle contest on mtv's "wil'n out" by that indian chick on the show...last time i checked, she wasn't a renown MC by any means.

to keep the mtv theme going, anybody who pays the ridiculous prices to see this overhyped douchebag is effectively being "punked," but in more of a jailhouse/prison sense than an mtv/ashton kutcher sense.

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2008 12:58 PM

...however, i might consider paying $175 for a ticket to see a 5 round vince gill vs. kanye rap battle, with the winner facing the indian chick from "wil'n out"
