A-list concerts in the 2020s are brutal in my experience so far. Everything just costs more. It sucks. For example, I saw The Eagles in 2019, paid less than $200 for floor seats at United Center. They just came back last month and those same floor seats started at nearly $300.
I missed the last tour when Paul came to Moline, IL (closest show to me on that tour), and at the time I said I was good if 2017 was my last Macca concert, when I had 4th row center in my home town of Tinley Park, IL. It couldn't get better for me. Then the pandemic came and for the first time in my lifetime, I faced the grim reality that he may never tour again. Now the tour is here and after these last few years, I'm ready for one more ride. Closest show is an 8 hour drive and since I bought my ticket, gas prices are insane. Add that to my ticket price, I've had to accept this is going to be an expensive run. But if it's the last, so be it. But it's just me. If I took a whole family with, there's no way I could swing it. There should be family packs for sale.
At the end of the day, my complaints aren't with Paul. They're with Ticketmaster and their fees and atrocious "platinum seat" program that pricegouges based on demand. Turned a $200 seat into $700. I was lucky to get my ticket at face value, but after all their taxes and fees, it came out to much more than I wanted to spend. That's the aggravating part.
