Yeah - £75 to see The Damned! 

Does make you wonder if we’ll see another jump in prices when gigs start up properly again. A mixture of acts desperate to make up for earnings lost in the last year and knowing that fans will be desperate to get back to gigs again...

Gateshead! I knew it was them! Even when it was the coronavirus I knew it was them! 

Convincing my mum and dad to see LCD at the end of a very trudge-y weekend was next level special. My da (in his 60s) was peripherally into the band but I'd had to briefed my mum that day on what

Doubt it. Youre not forseeing the over saturation of the  market once things go full whack. Everyone will just have too many choices and pricing will be favorable for that reason. Acts will take the money thats there and shouldnt be thinking they have to gouge anyone at all. they should understand the hunger for gigs and theyll just have to book more gigs to meet demand. If you even consider doubling ticket prices then patrons will find somebody else to go watch and call you out on your greed. Agents will be competing against each other and dont want to be on the short end because they demanded too high a fee for their talent.

Got Doves tickets for March too. No chance of that happening 🙄😥

Next thing I’ve got is Fontaines DC in April/May. Not massively confident myself.

Wouldn't pin it on the acts. I would think artists will come back to earn less than before, as promoters and venues desperately need more money and are mostly better placed to claim it.

Utter shite isn't it.

Why didn't you see Elton in the end - was that when he was ill on that flight back from S.America?

I saw him in 2017 (I think) for the first time at LG Arena...if that's what it was called then.

He put the tickets for 2020 on sale two years in advance, now it’s been pushed back a year. It’ll be at least three years between me buying the tickets and the gig actually taking place when it happens.

I saw him about five years ago in one of the most random venues imaginable... The Bescott Stadium, Walsall.

Ah right of course. Timeframes of years and events in my head are all over the shop. Fingers crossed for 2021.

Hahaha, unbelievable - he does that sometimes, he played at some weird venues in East Midlands too if I recall correctly.

Literally doesn't get weirder than the Bescott though. Mind you, bet he got some lovely trainers from the market...

He does have a thing for playing random football grounds. I know in the past he’s done Charlton, Oxford, Ipswich, Airdrie, Tranmere just to name a few.

Maybe he’s trying to cross off all 92.

He was the first act to ever play at Home Park in Plymouth. That was a great gig.

It depends who we are talking about, at the end of the day you go to a gig to see that specific band rather than any band.

I can see smaller acts who play the clubs and pubs might be desperate to play but they already earn shit money so I can't see a paycut with them and the top guys like Pearl Jam or Elton John will carry on like normal. If there is a price bump I see it being the Academy and an oversea acts.

Tbh with how little musicians get from selling their songs nowadays I don't think it's a huge issue if they charge an extra tenner on tixs to make up for lost earning. People didn't give a shit about the campaign against the likes of Spotify from a few months ago so think of it as a way of paying for all the free music you're listening to.

Yeah we’re in the same boat, got to be some sort of record for time between purchasing the ticket and the gig actually happening.

Personally I'd be willing to pay more on the caveat that it went to venues and artists as the primary beneficiaries.  Most of the gigs I go to are >£20 so a bit on top wouldn't kill me, but I'm not everyone. I'm sure there are plenty going to smaller gigs because that's their price range, and increases would price them out.

Be interesting to see how they approach it.  Maybe no change to prices but options for donations as part of the merch stands, or optional venue donations when buying tickets?

I think the venues might need this extra money?

I think both will tbh, that was my thinking behind the optional venue donation

I’d expect prices to go up purely for the promoter and, to a lesser extent, the venue - who will accept but can’t rely on optional donations.

Artists, on the other hand, have already been told that their future fees will be smaller. As you say, the merch stand (more so sales than optional donations) is going to be increasingly important as a revenue stream.

Best clear out some more t-shirt space

Looking forward to the conversation with Mrs J:

”Did you buy another t-shirt?”

”No, I was merely doing my bit to support a faltering industry...”

”By buying a t-shirt?”

”Yeah.”

It's not a t-shirt, it's a solidarity flag.
