    €52(not including booking fee) - give me a f**king break, that's practically the price of a one-day festival ticket.

    and yet you know there'll be thousands who'll cough up the readies for this we are after all one of the most fertile grounds for the likes of robbie williams, springsteen, the chillis, etc they're guaranteed a sellout for small/medium venues or near sellout for the larger venues - quids in

    Bit of a rip off alright. Nearly pissed myself laughing the other day when I saw Dolly Parton tickets go onsale at €106 including booking fee in the Point.

    Would shell out my euros to see Dolly quicker than the killers. Not sure who is the more plastic.

    Not a big surprise really, the demand is there, they know they'll sell it out at that price. They're a massive band at this stage in the public eye and apparently headlining one of the nights at Glastonbury next year.

    Every year Michael Eavis tries to get the Stones Roses to reform. Every single year! and every single year the rumours start, "mani seen in pub with ian brown." Glastonbury is seriously the most fun you could possibly have in five days. Incredible festival

    Saw Roger Waters at Glasto bout 5 years ago or so. It pissed rain while he sat down, drank tea and played cards with the other band members on stage. Seriously though, Glastonbury is the greatest place on earth and I advise everyone who reads this to try and get there next year. Ive been to 6 of them now and you will never find a more friendly, relaxed, communal, happy place on the planet than Glastonbury.

    They need to make some cash though, if when you were young is any indication they're probably handing all the publishing from the new album over to Springsteen. If not they should be.

    Nonsense......NONSENSE. This type of thing really gets on my nerves. Maybe you could justify a hike in ticket prices for a smaller, more intimate gig (Neil Young in Vicar St was €100...still over-priced). But to pay that much for an artist who's (no doubt) doing an oldies show in a huge venue like the Point. Complete nonsense. A Dolly Parton gig might not seem important. But if this show sells out, it'll only show the promoters and artists how much robbery they can get away with. Guys, don't pay these ridiculous ticket prices. I know its easier said than done, but its getting way out of hand.

    Speaking of ticket prices, 3.80 service charge on each ticket for Jeff Tweedy! Thats 7.60 extra! I presume it goes up for higher priced tickets? How much would it be for Dolly Parton!

    Yeah, thats another scam. Handling charge? Printing off a ticket and sticking it an envelope. As you sau, thats 3.80 PER ticket. Bulls**t. Luckily some of the local music shops have more sense. I try and avoid ticketmaster as much as possible.

    For Parton they've also thrown in an 'oversized mammary' service charge: €4.50 x 2. Rip-off! Ridiculous.
