I've had the pleasure of seeing E Street live a dozen times. Been there, done that.

On a related note, my wife has been trying to secure tickets for Harry Styles with no luck whatsoever. Astronomical pricing.

I see that. I’ve been more than a dozen times. Some were incredible (Leeds 2013) and some merely had their moments (Manchester 2016)
The thought that i might get to one of those special nights when Bruce and the band catch fire is still alluring. Sadly, Springsteen is not the man I thought he was. He said on Broadway that he was ‘a fraud’. Right now that looks like hiding in plain sight. I will still enjoy the albums…but beyond that? It’s over.

Garth Brooks' take on dynamic pricing, from an interview with Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

What are your thoughts about the use of dynamic pricing on tickets? [Dynamic pricing, where the price of tickets for a show fluctuates depending on the demand for tickets, is being used by Ticketmaster ostensibly to prevent scalping, but has basically just made itself the scalper.]

GB: That’s a tough one. [Bruce] Springsteen is going through it right now. We’re all watching it. Here’s the bottom line for me, and I know this is silly, but I have screamed and screamed as long as you’ve known me: just knock out scalping. That’s it. Just make it illegal. That way, the price of the ticket is the price of the ticket. The same money is going to be exchanged when scalping tickets, it’s just now who gets the money, that’s the difference. The thing I hate about it, the hardest it’s on is the fan, the one who allows you to live your dream.

But if you go play Vegas, you do a residency, you’re going to do dynamic pricing. It’s going to be tough, so residencies are hard, but they always are because of the limited amount of seating anyway.

$485 for the opposite end of the arena in Albany, NY. Or I could do the floor for $599. I mean what the hell, if I’m paying that much might as well pony up the extra $100!!!

Good dude with a good heart. At his last Nashville show, every ticket was $95. Not sure if he used anti-scalping measures or not (Bruce tickets were $399-$99, and that’s before VIP, Platinum, or dynamic pricing was added). Pearl Jam and Rage Against the Machine have used anti-scalping measures that have worked very well. Go ahead. See if you can find any PJ ($99) or Rage tickets ($125) that are being scalped. Eliminating scalping, while keeping prices low, can be done. It is being done. Bruce just doesn’t give a shit.
