$195 for floor seats to see Styx and Loverboy in CT. Seriously?.....these are prices for the Fleetwood Mac's, Elton John's, and McCartney's.

I think I'll stick with going to see DDY as I have been.

but you get all this really cool stuff.

- One premium reserved ticket wtf?
- Specially designed Styx tour shirt (exclusive to packages only) 8)
- Collectible silk-screened tour poster (numbered) :lol:
- Exclusive Styx embroidered hat :lol:
- Official Styx button and sticker set :shock:
- Commemorative tour laminate :|
- Commemorative ticket :lol:
- Limited edition Styx merchandise item :roll:
and you get an up close view of Gowan spinning.

actually there are plenty of under 50$ seats avail, which to me to see Loverboy (with their original lead singer) would be a great deal.

As if there was something for them to "get over". I wouldn't even pay that kind of money to see DDY. It's not worth it for bands\artists that are well past their prime. The one exception I made was for Roger Water's The Wall tour. Only because I never got to see Pink Floyd in their hay day. I was lucky enough to work for a company that had naming rights to several large venues and got to see many big acts for nothing. Those were the days.
