That's fucking insanity. The face value here is $39.50 and it's $48.50 after fees.

True true. I'm only 1.5 hours myself, but still, the border can (and usually is) be a hastle.

Why aren't there more shows at the Kool Haus anymore? I was there a million times in the late 1990's and I've been there three times since, the last time was four years ago.

Kool Haus is a great venue! Seen a few shows there (LoG, Down, Motorhead). Great line of sight and sound is great too!

Exactly, and the general concensious is the Sound Academy is terrible. I have a lot of good memories of the Kool Haus (the Warehouse/Guvernment). It was the only place I ever saw Type O Negative, Mr. Bungle, Slayer and Primus.

The Toronto show was about $44 after charges or something, and since it's with ticketfly you actually save a couple of dollars if go for the online printout instead of a hard ticket being mailed to you. I don't think Ticketmaster gives you a discount on that. So some of insane Montreal price could just be the venue they're playing. What's the face value of Montreal tickets before the service charges?

Could be for a number of reasons really, but i'm guessing it could be because Kool Haus, being a dance club a lot of times, just not wanting to book concerts maybe? Or maybe they're asking for a shit load more money from the bands/promoters these days. I don't know...

Second Toronto show added at Sound Academy on October 23 due to "overwhelming demand" and nothing at all to do with the Quebec City show getting cancelled.

The first Toronto show IS Sold out though...although it did take quite a while to sell it out...maybe it's being billed as sold out?
