Lionel Concert

I am a fan of Lionel Richie. I love his music.I have been to all of his concerts. But I think the price of his Glasgow concert is too expensive. Its £65.00 for a ticket. Could I have your views on the above.

£65 is comparatively a bargain for a concert by a global star like Lionel Richie.

In the past few weeks I've bought tickets for 3 concerts and a festival

Peter Hook (ex New Order) £20.12

New Order £35.00

Elbow £42.50 (this is a special event at Jodrell Bank observatory)

Latitude Festival £188.50 for dozens of bands, comedians, readings etc over three days

I suppose the final decider though is if you think it's worth it - how much do you want to see him live, and will he likely play concerts again in the near future.

Gig tickets are priced by the basis of what they think you, as a loyal fan, will stand, balanced against a venue being at least 90% full...

So while Des O'Connor tickets would be priced at around the £0.65 mark to guarantee a venue filling to 90%, Elvis on the other hand could easily get £6,500 per ticket and sell out a venue.

The one thing in common being that all the fans would consider that the price was right for either of them!

I don't think this will be his last...'cos his latest Album is in the TOP the moment.

Quickbeam. How dare you! There are people like me who would willingly pay more to see Des O'Connor than Elvis. For one thing Elvis is dead. In fact I think I would sooner see Daniel O'Donnell than Elvis.

The people who lash out these large amounts of cash to see nondescript bands are all nut cases. (In my opinion).

The best ever Des O'Connor gag was a Morcambe and Wise show where they mentioned that you could get a sleeping berth at his concerts!!!

I think that I would rather be dead than see Daniel O'Donnell!

Batch....arrange your funeral music so that Daniel O'Donnell is played when you are being 'put to rest' should raise a chuckle amongst your grieving mourners...hee hee!

I rather suspect that would be enough to kick-off a mass suicide. Mind you they would be in the right place for it.

As it happens, I said to my wife only yesterday that if one had to choose only one performer (solo arist, band etc.) that you could listen to for the rest of your life, I would probably opt for Ray Charles and I happened to put on a compilation of his this arvo.
