Just recently, Madonna came to my area for a concert. The most expensive ticket cost about $1300. The concert was jam packed as expected since she has a lot of fans both young and old here. One thing I've noticed though is that most of the average people who watched the concert have sacrificed a lot just to be able to buy a ticket for her concert. Students had to sacrifice their allowances, average working class people starved themselves for months, some even had to borrow money just to come up with the required amount for a ticket. I can understand the fondness of some people for their ultimate idols. However, for a practical person like me, I would rather spend that kind of amount on more important things especially at a time when times are hard and it's hard to make ends meet. Do you also watch live concerts and would you also spend a big amount for a ticket to your favorite singer's live show?
