Using an exchange rate site gives me $79.40. May as well round it up to $80. The rear tickets for the show is around £37 and that certainly isn't cheaper than $40.
I see. Looks like we're all getting fucked.
To be fair, dream theater shows ALWAYS range in prices.
When it's a festival, or back when it was the progressivenation tour, it would obviously be pricie. And when the Iron Maiden/Dream Theater tour happened in North America that was expensive as fuck. (The show nearest to me was like 80, 105 and 145 bucks respectively depending on which type of ticket you wanted)
But Dream Theater headline shows, outside of festivals and prognation, tend to be cheaper - I saw DT with Charred Walls Of The Damned in a standing venue last july on one of their few one off shows for only 45 bucks.
Maybe part of the reason the shows are so expensive is because it's been over a year since they last toured? Either way, prices are crazy.
