agreed. every prog or power metal band that comes to LA charges about $30-40 a ticket. Primal Fear just played here sometime ago and their tickets were $30 plus $10 ticketmaster charges. same deal every time Edguy plays here, Kamelot, Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, etc. suprisingly DragonForce doesn't charge that much as they're bigger than all those bands.
luckily i always find some sort of deal from the opening band. i paid $40 to see Stratovarius in 2006. i found a deal this time that's only $28 from a local band opening the show. same thing with Sonata Arctica in 2007 i paid $20 instead of $40.
