Not really kids. Long Island folks don't get to venture out to the city for shows too often so they pay the high price.

Also GA tickets are priced at 89 and seated ones are 143

US $75.00 Ticket + US $14.75 Fees =
US $89.75 US

$125.00 Ticket + US $18.00 Fees =
US $143.00

STP is one of the best live shows you'll ever see. Unfortunately, I don't think any band is worth $150 plus traveling to Long Island for.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2012 10:02 AM

That's a bad justification to charge high prices to see a crappy, derivative, has-been band.

Bon Iver's a joke

was there a bon iver presale?

They also didn't charge 143 dollars, or even 89 dollars, to see them in Williamsburg.
I would imagine the rent is cheaper at the Paramount, than it is at say, Irving Plaza. Really it sounds like STP charges a high guarantee, so the promoter has to charge more given that there's less seats at the Paramount than Williamsburg Waterfront.

Jones Beach is such a joke. Orchestra tickets are held by the various Long Island d-bag broker types.

They have a huge guarantee. Band is 100% about money at this point. At least they'll be switching up the setlist a bit and playing Core.

10:06, yep. You missed it.

Calling bullshit on this Bon Iver selling out 2 nights in less than 5 minutes.

Do Bowery Presents/Ticketmaster really think we're that stupid? NYC ticketing is beyond laughable.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2012 10:12 AM

There were easily a few 1000 at the STP waterfront show. I don't know how big the paramount is, but they will have no problem selling high priced tickets to suburbia

If they were smart, they'd make double-lettered rows in Orchestras 3-5 will call only.

STP play the same set list for several years. I doubt they will change 1 song from it. $150? Linsane.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2012 10:27 AM

Paramount capacity is 1500. They sold out Jones Beach just 2 summers ago (15000), so I don't think this will be a problem.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2012 10:27 AM

The Waterfront capacity is 5000. You couldn't move once they started.

10:27, first of all, that Jones Beach show was not sold out. I was there. Many seats were filled, but I paid 15 bucks because LiveNation had a 4 tix for 60 deal. The show probably sold about 10000 out of 15000. But also factor in that many people, like me, paid 15 bucks. The price for the Paramount is almost 10x that much.

..also, many people from the city are willing to go to Jones Beach. Not as many are willing to go to Suffolk County to see a band.

I was down to buy some STP tickets at a small venue until I saw that price. Had 4 in my basket but closed it.

The Jones Beach show was in no way sold out.

Also like half the people that live on Long Island work in Manhattan, so saying they won't venture into the city for a concert is one of the most retarded things I've ever seen.

And Williamsburg is the new Long Island. Been on Bedford Ave lately? Yeeesh.

Scott Weiland is all about the money now. He's still a great frontman and singer, but he's not as good as he used to be.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2012 10:47 AM

10:45 - Agreed. Go to the meat packing district on a Saturday night; probably more than half are bridge and tunnel.

Jones Beach is the worst venue in NY. Unless you're a stupid hippie going to see Phish, it's awful.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2012 10:50 AM

STP won't even play this show. Weiland will cancel and quit the band again, weeks before the date.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2012 10:52 AM

Agreed 1050. What shit sound it has too. AND you can't drink unless you're in their VIP tent. AND the cops are dicks to people partying in the parking lots.

For the STP show, the entire top-most section was empty. It was nice in a way because you could go up there to smoke in peace.

Yup, super lame venue. Don't even sell booze and they never have a GA pit.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2012 10:56 AM

Unless you're up front, the sound is awful at Jones Beach. If you're sitting in the stadium portion, the sound can get really awful if it's a windy night.

The secondary market is going to try to get big bucks for Bonny Bear (and some will be stupid enough to pay), but by night of, it's going to dip to below face.

Posted by Anonymous | May 11, 2012 11:00 AM

Bonny Bear is another perfect example (like the Weeknd) of someone I'd listen to on record, but not see live.

I guess that means it's improving then.

Jones Beach is the worst venue out there. I passed on Bonny Bear because RCMH is number 2 on that same list.

RCMH has great sound yeah, but for shows unless you have really close seats, everything feels like you're watching from the street.
