May you go marching in three-measure time, dressed up as asses and drunk to the nines...

I probably wouldn't go even if the ticket prices were reasonable, which they are most certainly not.

I'm going to the show he's doing here in Buffalo on April 9th. I believe the show along with a few others so far have sold out. The tickets for my show were like 68 bucks before the fees. So, honestly I don't consider it to be that expensive at all. They could easily charge more to see someone as popular as Seger is.

I haven't seen him since 1996 so i'm looking forward to it. It will be a fun and enjoyable rock n roll show.

Hmm, well from what I hear, the tickets for his Toronto show are well over 100, even for the cheap seats. I could have heard wrong though.

My mom is a big Seger fan and I took her to see him in '96. She'd like to see him one last time but I don't know if she'd want to pay that much for tickets.

The only time I've ever paid $100 for one ticket was to see the Police reunion tour.

Got my tickets. 75 for floor tickets are not bad at all.

When I saw him in 1996 it was a very good show. I didn't see him on his last tour but i've some youtube videos and it looks like his still can go live. A lot of musicians still put on good shows when they get older. Seger is in his mid 60s now but that's never stopped anyone. Just look at how long Dio went for. If you factor in all the drug and alcohol abuse, Ozzy is like 95 and still going. Seger is fortunate that he's never done anything over the top with his vocals and his voice is just very natural and he doesn't have to strain to hit notes at all. So his singing won't be that different from what we remember it to be.

He plays a long show to. He does about 25 songs a night which puts the show at 2 hrs plus.

I'd rather see Metallica cover Turn the Page than see Bob Seger play at his age.

Sounds good, he has hours of hits. The man could play all night if he wanted to.
