He can't sing. In fact some of his vocals are painful. Who the hell would pay $600 to hear someone sing, who can't sing? Second question: His concerts routinely suffer from poor attendance. Why charge $600 when you already have trouble filling your seats?

one of the all time hilarious concert moments for me was at an outdoor venue, where the best seats were in actual chairs in a covered pavillion, and the general admission seats were on a ascending lawn in the back. it had to be late 90's. waters' in the flesh tour, i think. the concert was good. it was fine, if not spectacular...and near the end he started performing brain damage/eclipse from dark side. it got the crowd going. but when he started singing...the lunatic is on the grass...the overhead lights of the venue put spotlights on the completely barren lawn area...save for one sorry soul right in the middle of it. it was a great laugh.

do i hear crickets?... :shock:

i guess you had to be there.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
