Minneapolis Lilith Fair Tickets - $300? What?

Lilith Fair is coming back to Minneapolis, and it is a pretty interesting line up. Personally, I'd really like to see Heart and Metric, and I'd really be interested to see how Mary J. Blige sounds live.

Now, before you give me too much crap about Heart, remember that three of their first four albums, specifically Dreamboat Annie, Little Queen, and Dog and Butterfly were classics and provided some incredible music for their time. I'll grant you that things careen downhill from there in a big hurry with the rest of their catalog, but I'd hope that they have the sense not to play All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You in their live shows.

In checking out the tickets for the show, I'm shocked to find that costs for a decent seat are nearly $300. Oh, I can stand way in the back with General Admission, but part of the fun of going to concerts is being able to actually see the band play. Given the GA location, well behind all the reserved seating. the view will just stink.

Sorry, Lilith Fair, but for that kind of dough I can get a good seat through Craig's List at the upcoming U2 show. And at the end of the day I'd rather hear one incredible band than a bunch of just OK ones. Hopefully Metric will come back on their own some time and I can check them out then.

In the mean time, good luck with those ticket sales, Lilith Fair.
