$500 For George Strait Tickets?

01:02 AM Saturday 1/24/09 |   |

Internet ticket scalpers are asking up to $550 per seat to the George Strait night show scheduled for this summer at Cheyenne Frontier Days.

    1st Mariner Arena, Baltimore.

CFD Tickets Committee chairman Jim Gorman says Frontier Days limits purchases of tickets to six per individual.

He says he doesn't like the expensive asking prices on the Internet but there's not much Frontier Days can do about it.

But Gorman said CFD is looking into who bought the tickets that are being offered for such high prices.

Strait is scheduled to play July 18. The country music legend sold out a Frontier Days show in 2004.

    I'm not sure why everone is bitching out AP.  Somewhere, somehow, someone will pay $550 for a George Strait ticket. There's a LIMIT to how many people would be stupid enough to, but there's a sucker born every minute, as they say.

    Whether stories like this make it appear this the norm rather than an abberation is anyone's guess.

    why are they worried about this, ticketmaster itself sells the better seats to most of it's more popular events, for buttloads of money over the regular ticket price. why dont they go worry about that instead.

    Why does Associated Press waste there time with stories like this?  But whats more surprising to me is why Pollstar, a source thats familiar with the music industry, print this on there website.  Give me something thats worth my time to read please!

    I have a pair of tickets available to see George Strait for $2000.  Actually, I don't have them, but if someone out there will pay that, I'm sure I can get them for you.  

    I'm also taking deposits for front row tickets to see the Led Zeppelin reunion tour in any city you would like.  Refunds will be available as soon as the world is absolutely sure that it ain't happin.

    News organs like Associated Press never get these stories right.  

    Just because sellers are asking $550, that doesn't mean they''ll get that price.  They start high, then lower prices per market demand.
