That is far from expensive.

I just searched an upcoming Megadeth show (without Rob Zombie) on LiveNation. Ticket prices with charges:

Balcony - $34.75-52
Orchestra - $52-62.50
Pit - $101.50

And for the Overkill / DRI show in New York:

GA - $39.45

Obviously ticket prices vary from venue to venue, but in this particular case, to get in the pit at the Megadeth show vs. the Overkill show there is a $60 difference. To even get into the Megadeth show (and sit in the very back rows) you're still paying a few dollars less than it does to get a spot on the rail for Overkill. This might not be the case for every city the tour hits, but for ones like LA, where I am, it means paying a lot more. Maybe if you're okay with having far away seats or just not an Overkill fan this isn't a problem, but I don't want to see Overkill and sit down in the back when I could pay almost the same price to be in the pit and see them do a headlining set instead.

The only concert around here ive ever seen that has pit for over 100 is linkin park... thats outrageous. I doubt many venues would charge close to that..

And the day after that $101 dollar show, they're playing with Rob Zombie at Stage AE in Pittsburgh and all tickets are general admission and are $47.50.

Willing to bet the venue of the $101 tickets is operated/owned by Ticketbastard/LiveNation.

I'd go for Overkill alone. I've yet to see Megadeth either, so that would be cool.

jesus tits, new yawk is expensive. Overkill headlining here a week and a half ago was $22 and when I saw Megadeth headline the exact same club a few years back (probably the smallest venue Megadeth has played in 20 years ) it was like $30.

What the hell? The most i've ever paid to see Megadeth was on the first gigantour and they were like $55 and that was in an amphitheater. I had pretty good seats to. The other times i've seen them recently have been in genreal admission venues and the tickets were around $40-$45. It's hard to believe they're charging that much now because Megadeth ticket prices have always been reasonable.

Would rather Overkill headline in a smaller place with a bunch of cool openers. How many times do I need to see Megadeth play the same set
