Quote from: Nulli Secundus on June 26, 2013, 08:44:50 amEven with the increase in ticket prices it is just not as profiatable for them to play here now as it was in 2007. It would be interesting to see what the attendance figures were like for the US and Canada over the 2007 - 2013 tours.My fear is that they won't bother coming to the UK if they tour again so it would be back to the US to see them
Quote from: Thailand Express on June 26, 2013, 11:28:05 amThat's quite a drop! Mind you I was at the 2007 show and I don't recall the crowd being as big as that, where does that figure come from?
Quote from: Thailand Express on June 26, 2013, 12:23:58 pmFact is a lot of people who went along in 2004 or 2007 will have "ticked the box" and seen a legendary act perform either after a long absence or for the first time.There's not many artists that I'd go to see 4 times in a decade, so it's not surprising that attendances are dropping back to the hardcore fans, not just in Europe but North America too.A good example from this tour would be the visit to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where they haven't played since Hold Your Fire. The gig sold out in 10 minutes and they had to add another night. I don't think that's happened in many other places where, if not contempt, familiarity certainly breeds apathy...
Quote from: freewill on June 26, 2013, 14:12:07 pmback in their day they would have done 4/5 nights in each of Wembley & the NEC, what was it then £20 per ticket?
Quote from: Matt2112 on June 26, 2013, 15:11:31 pmIncidentally, funnily enough, as I'm in the middle of a house move I inadvertently dug out my tickets from the NEC in '88 and Sheffield in '92 the other day - £10.00 and £14.00 respectively. Not sure how that compares with inflation given decent tickets are £80.00 nowadays, but a shock nonetheless.
Quote from: Night Flyer on June 26, 2013, 15:24:38 pmPaid £5.00 for MP/ESL in '81. Can't remember what for Signals off hand but Signals was a double nighter in the Edinburgh Royal Highland Barn.Ah here we go again. The old days (sigh)
