$500 per person for Balcony seats seems a bit steep.

Saw Louis C.K. on Conan a couple of weeks ago. It seemed as if he had worked on his material for about 15 minutes--riffing on how everyone stands up at once on a crowded airplane as soon as the aircraft reaches the terminal. What a dufus.

"$500 per person for Balcony seats seems a bit steep."

Yes but you are paying that to see his royal highness Springsteen play 1 or 2 songs.
Those 100 dollar last row balcony seats go quick.
If this was not for charity it would be ok to call the Springsteen fools who grab these a bunch of idiots

As usual. Oh wait Vegan how dare you not cover the Springsteen shows at Giants stadium. I mean cmon epic that you get to hear him play a full album in a giant stadium with shitty sound and close views on a video screen. I mean cmon, greatest concerts of all time.
