I don't know what I would pay to see the BSB. In my opinion... well, let's just say that first off, the price of a ticket depends on how many people you want to take with you or whom all wants to go with you... typically, tix to any concert (not just the Backstreet Boys), are expensive, especially if there are... say... seven of you going. If it was just me going by myself, or if I was just gonna meet a friend there, let's say, then I could probably be able to afford it. but if there were seven-fifteen of us going together, then duh, it would be expensive. For the most part, in conclusion, I do think that ticket prices are kind of ridiculus.... the fact of the matter being that not everyone can afford them.

I don't feel that the ticket prices are high
if u luv a group so much as the Backstreet Boys
then price shouldn't be a issue.

I think tickets are to high, when you are sitting in the nose bleed section and pay over $35.00 for them! It has happened to me once! I have paid reasonable prices for all my backstreet concerts and got great seats! I can't complain!

Yeah but if I want to go to a Backstreet Boys show, and god willing someday I will go, then I want good seats, and I want to be able to afford good seats without being so far back that I can't see.
Who the hell can afford $230 for two little pieces of cardboard? I can't, my mother certainly can't, so who's going to pay that much when they don't have to?
Ticket prices should be lowered to accomidate everyone who wants to go and see BSB not just the upper crust who can afford it. :p

I'm 24 years old and I've only been able to see the guys twice because prices are too high. I work and have bills to pay so I can't always afford to buy tickets. The first time I went I took a friend and it only cost me $150.00 for both tickets...that was cool. For my sisters birthday I took her to the Millineum Concert, I shelled out $250.00 PER TICKET. Granted they were floor seats but they were the same rows as my first concert. Now I love the Boys music...as does a lot of my friends and family but the prices are getting out of control. By the way loving and supporting the guys does not mean having to pay an arm, leg and a couple of toes for tickets. Not everyone has deep pockets. I'll continue to buy albums and support them however I can but now I only go to concerts when I can afford to.

I know the guys work every hard for their money and deserve all of it, I do agree that tickets are really high priced. I paid 120 per ticket, I had to pay for mine and two of of my friends who are broke pretty much, but I could never go w/o them! My seats werent great, I was on the like third story, but it was worth. I loved every minute and I still was so happy to be there. My ticket said 68 dollars, but since I got it online it was alot higher.
love, Ash

Ticket prices are high. But it depends on where you are. The bigger the city, the higher the price. And to the person who said whoever isn't willing to pay for tix isn't a true fan, is totally out of line. That's not true. Being a fan isn't about buying tickets. It's about supporting them whatever way you can whether it's just listening to them, voting for them, or whatever. Some people don't have the money for a really nice concert; their families may work hard enough to put food on the table, so they can't afford the tix. It's unfair for you to judge the measure of a fans loyalty by the amount of money they can spend on a ticket. Howie always says to keep the Backstreet pride alive; and I'm sure he doesn't mean only if you have the money. Think about what you say before you say it. Anyone who supports BSB the best way they can is a true fan. KTBSPA.

Yes I do think ticket prices are WAY too high. It's rediculous to pay $120-$320/ticket and that's how much you have to pay at Ticketmaster Online. I realize that the fellas have to make their money but I'm on a tight budget and I can't afford to pay that much for two little strips of cardboard even if I wanted to.
Ticket prices should definitely be lowered so that everyone can see the Backstreet Boys, not just a selected few who can afford insane ticket prices like that.

I think that ticket prices are okay, depending on where your seats are. I mean, if you get the 5th level, way at the back and you have to pay between $50-$80, I think that is insaine. I did it when I first started liking BSB, because I wanted to see them so bad, but now I'm to the point where if I don't get close seats, I don't go. I refuse to pay that much for tickets and then be able to hardly see them. Not only that, there are several young fans out there that have to save allowance money, etc. and to save that much can be difficult. I'm 24, and I have a great job in Administration, and even I have a hard time with that.
Then again, if you have 2nd row seats, I can see paying up to $100- $200. No more, thats crazy!

The price of BSB tickets shouldnt matter if u r a fan. I'd pay anything for a ticket if only they came to England.

Why are the ticket prices so high? I think I may have an answer.

Usually prices go up when the demand for an act increases. This is a basic principle of economics. So that must mean the demand for BSB is increasing, right? Well, it's obvious the answer is "wrong." BSB are past their peak in fame and popularity.

But the concerts cost just as much money to put on regardless of whether the arena fills up completely. So as tickets no longer sell out, BSB must jack up ticket prices to ensure that profits are made off the tour.

Solution: Buy more albums! If you keep the demand for BSB high, the prices can be lower while maintaing a profitable tour. If BSB's new album is a hit you can feel pretty safe that the concert prices are coming down 'cause they know they'll be able to sell all the tickets.

BLOODY YES! The ticket prices are definitely WAY too high! We're not made of money! If I was, I could arrange for a private viewing instead of nosebleed seats!

Well I think they should lower pirices and do a stadium tour. I know it doesn't make sense....'cause you think bigger concert....more money right? Well I for one think the live concerts are what the music is all about. Not about album sales, or music videos, or interviews, or photo shoots. IT'S THE MUSIC that counts and I think if they want more respect then they should lower prices to get more people to go to concerts...which will showcase their real talent leading them to more fans. It's absolutely out rageous and rediculous that the thing that counts the most to fans costs the most. I'll be dammened if I fork out a 150 dollars for ONE bloody ticket. Like many other's have said....their main fan base is probably between 10-20 and most people between that age don't have the money to pay for that.....let alone a FOURTY TWO dollar t-shirt. It seems almost wron and coniving that the record companies (or whoever deals with the costs) allows this crap. I mean I love my boys to death but do the REALLY need 150-200 dollars per person. I mean especially when they're selling to arena's that hold 10,000 and up people. I'd be satisfied with 10 bucks a person...that's 100,000 dollars. I know the money is split up including cost of all the stage "spectacular" that they put on....but really who needs all that flashy...showy stuff. Don't you just want the music...to hear them sing? That IS what it's all about isn't it?! Or wait....maybe I'm wrong and the world needs the special effects because we get too bored too easily and think that every person HAS to one up the next. Sorry I'm tired...and I had to rant. I'll probably wake up in the morning and think "what the hell was I thinking?" anyway....goodnite.
