Theyre already millionaires if not billionaires.
Just out of curiosity, who's a billionaire recording artist?

Thats. Not. The. Point.
Why is it a terrible idea? Theyre already millionaires if not billionaires.
I wasn't aware you were unable to make more money after a certain threshold. And I'm pretty sure there's a reason these people are millionaires (instead of poor people complaining about ticket prices).

Do you actually have a legitimate argument for why they shouldn't charge what they like? Because "they're already rich" and "why should they charge too much" are not arguments. They're the complaints of someone who has a negative relationship with money.

every time I post on here I end up fighting off wolves. Thank god im anonymous.
Does that not tell you that you're the issue here then, if it keeps happening? As I've said before, you are abusing the anonymous function. It's not something for you to hide behind.

Because with wealth comes responsibility.

I wasnt targeting him in particular, it was just an example.
Okay well I think your point has been disproven, theres probably only 2 or 3 billionaire musicians and I'm sure the money made touring really does nothing for their wallet. I've not heard of any artists charging face value tickets for the prices you've said. you seem to be unable to find it too, you're either looking at secondary sale tickets or meant to say £100 instead of £500.

But the thing is they dont even charge much... Face value tickets are very very reasonable

Charging money for tickets isn't irresponsible. Try again.

They don’t have a responsibility to charge nothing for their tickets. Nobody has that responsibility.

If you can’t afford to pay what they ask then don’t buy it, simple. There is no point complaining on here and fuelling the argument because you think it isn’t fair. Life isn’t supposed to be fair, if you can’t handle that then you should try and get help or you will forever face problems.

But it isn’t a debate. It’s you moaning about something being unfair when it actually isn’t a problem.

Also your attitude to others on here, which has been pointed out to you before.

If life is unfair as you said then the issue is with society not with me for pointing it out.

Ticket price has to cover a lot of things like the venue, staff, security, flights/hotel for the performer and their entourage.

Once you have covered your operating costs the Record label takes a nice chunk, agents take a nice chunk, government taxes a nice chunk. When all is said and done, not much of it actually goes to the performer.

(Concert tickets for popular performers also very price inelastic, but that is getting into an economics debate)
