You know, this really isn't that rediculous. I'm sure everyone will just see the big figure and flip out. Think about it this way:


One reserved ticket to the show located within the first price tier - this would be an easy $100 on your own + ticketmaster charges, so you're looking at as much as $130 for just the single ticket in the first tier alone.

A meet and greet and personal photo taken with band member(s) - Hard to put a price on, but face it, you're not gonna get to just casually stroll into Halford after the show.
Private pre-show party to include food, music, trivia and a chance to win prizes - You will save a ton of money on food and drinks if you had any plans of buying any at the venue considering the rape-tastic charges.
Merchandise package - As long as this were to include a few solid items, it easily could be worth $50 if not more, considering a shirt itself will be $35.

Exclusive Judas Priest VIP T-shirt - Even if it is a lame design, it's priceless, and you won't find any band related shirt for under $20.
Exclusive Judas Priest VIP laminate and lanyard - Basically see above, it's a great suveneir.

It's really not bad at all for a die-hard fan. If this were Maiden, I would do it without missing a beat.

Seriously though.
$170 extra for the Platinum and all you get is to meet the band and have a photo taken with them....

Not true. If you look closely, the lesser-priced package only garuntees you a ticket, not a ticket in the first section... which could be a financial difference of anywhere from $20 to $100.

The only reason I would get one of these would be to guarentee GREAT seats, but it doesn't look like you'll end up any closer than buying the $125 tickets
