    The Eagles tour is a shameless display of greed and playing on people's 
    nostalgia. I wonder how those guys can sleep at night knowing how much they're 
    charging fans for tickets. 

This isn't exactly on the list topic, and I'd be glad to continue it
offline, but I have to point out that around here, Eagles charged about
$120 for tickets, which is only slightly, if any, more than I paid to
scalpers throughout The Who's '89 tour for good seats.  The market value
of most top concert seats is obviously around $125(*) and will be paid
to SOMEbody; I have no problem with it going to the artist, rather than
ticket agencies.


(*)Varies, of course, with circumstance; a Garth Brooks front-row last
year here in Austin was selling for around $700.  Not that I went.
