It amazes me how high of a price their shows are.... Here, it only ever costs $20.

I was thinking about seeing them on November 3 in Baton Rouge but I knew they would play a lot of recent material (Plus Geoff's voice isn't what it used to be). If they were playing Rage for Order at the November 3 show I would totally go. Strange they'll play Chemical youth since they're not youth anymore.

Pretty standard price for them. That's what they'd cost here.

Yeah, I'd be going for sure.

If this wasn't on such short notice and I hadn't just seen them about 3 months ago, I'd go to this. It's hilarious that tickets are $55 though.

It's not to me :eyes:

It is hilarious that they're two-for-one though.

Yeah, because $55 is twice as much as Queensryche should be charging for tickets and no one is willing to pay that. When I saw them 3 months ago tickets were only $18, and that's honestly the only reason why I went. Queensryche definitely doesn't have the drawing power anymore to be asking $55 for tickets.

exactly,
I suppose their egotistical side suggests that by advertising playing RAGE FOR ORDER in its entirety that it warrants a higher ticket price.

Sorry, but no matter what they do, between Tate's voice not being what it used to be and the absence of DeGarmo, no gimmick is going to increase their audience.

I saw them on the TRIBE tour.
I actually walked out about 2/3 of the way into it.
I just couldn't take it anymore.

Would Geoff Tate be able to sing The Warning in its entirety?

When they did their tour back in August, I was looking through a few of their shows, and the ticket prices were as high as this one. So this isn't the obly show where it has been expensive.

...I paid $18 in August. I guess I just got lucky, which is good. Queensryche in 2011 isn't worth more than $20-25 unless it's a Mindcrime show.

Same here, I paid $22 after service charges to see them a couple years ago. And the same price again in August (before the show eventually got canceled)

a quick Google search says that this venue is a 700 capacity place, sheesh.

Some of the ticket prices you guys pay are just more examples of how America doesn't realise how much the real world costs ;)

I'd pay $30 to see all of Rage for Order. It's my favorite album by them.

Me too, except I haven't seen them in like 3 years.

Can't suddenly squeeze this into my agenda though as much as I'd like to.
