You think $150 is a lot for Eminem? Taylor Swift is charging $140

Yeah man, I'm sure alot more goes into it than I realize. But I paid $100 for acdc I think it was, but they did a fair few shows. Just do a couple more shows at a bit less of a cost, not to mention the special zone tickets to get to the front that are heaps more.

I guess with someone like Taylor Swift they put a lot of money into costuming and back-up dancers and things of that sort. Not too sure about Eminem. I saw U2 here in Perth for only $99 and was right on the barrier! Then again, they would know they'd sell 100,000 tickets easily.

Eastern capital, anyway. Even then, probably only Melbourne or Sydney.
