I'd find that hard to believe that they have little to no control over their ticket prices. That did jog my memory a little bit though... I do also remember that in '08 was when they were independent and now that they signed to Columbia their tickets are sky high.
I get that on a major label the tickets would probably go up a bit, but it seems hard to believe that they go from independent to major label and that doubles the prices of their shows. Again, I don't know for sure but that seems a bit excessive to me.
