Hi Guys, just my $0.02 worth. Try living in Ireland, we get nothing...I mean nothing. Sure we get Bon Jovi on arena jaunts but outside of that......Sweet Fanny Adams.In the past three years we have had , Jovi, Thunder, Leppard, Thin Lizzy....and thats it....yup spoilt for choice.If I want to see a decent gig I have to fly to the UK ...Gods , ZRock or the occasional big name band.I went to the states this year for specifically to see Poison/Dokken/Slaughter/Cinderella and paid $70 for 2 tickets.(not to mention air fares)...about 40 rows back......not bad at all.I 'm not on a soap box here but sometimes I do wonder.From my fairly regular trips to Maximes in Wigan (home of the Gods) , they are one of the remaining night clubs to have a melodic rock disco on the first Friday of the month which is usually well attended.I have heard people complain that it's the same thing month in month out , I can accept that but to everybody else who has nothing like that it's amazing......I would KILL to have an event like that at home.The point I am trying to make is appreciate it while you have it , because when it's gone you will miss it.Personally $50 or $ 60 to see a big tour would be money well spent , but I suppose it's relative to where you live.I was also in Minneapolis during the summer to see Firehouse and Conditioned Response at The Main Event in Fridley and it was excellent value for $10........I really think you guys in the USA have a much better deal than us over here in Europe , I mean big US acts rarely come to Europe these days , except maybe for a 10 date tour of 7 countries.....however in the USA bands still do large tours and seem to play all the major centres......oh well I can but dream of Journey, Queensryche, Styx, Foreigner, REO, Poison et al playing here....you guys have it wrapped up!!!.....cheers......Kieran
