Im a bit younger, but I still miss good concerts that won't cost you an arm and a leg....
Used to be you could go see a concert for 20 and get on the floor .... try doing that today for less than a couple franklins plus the 15 dollar beers.
I saw steve miller for 10 and we brought a coolor of liquor laden fruit and it was awesome!
The closest to that non ripped off feeling was seeing Iron Maiden last August in Chicago, a pavillion ticket with the free parking for 52 bucks! And boy can they play! Outstanding show!
