	All concert tickets cost more in general than the did 10-15 years ago. 
The ticket price range from my ticket agency for Fleetwood Mac last
month ranged from $85-300 smackeroos, depending on how close you wanted
to sit.
	I paid $75 to see both Pete Townshend and KISS last year.  It seems
very fair to me.
	That's just the way things are if you really want to see a good group. 
I'm not saying it's like that for ALL groups, I'm just saying the above
price range is becoming the norm if you don't want to stand in line for
3 hours at the venue box office.

	When I saw Pete Townshend last year, I was surprise how many really
young people who were there that knew all of the words to all of his
solo material that he was singing!
