Re: Konzerthaus in Vienna - Sept. 24 - ON SALE

Hi, I apologise if I have been rude on this board, but I got quite angry earlier with someome claiming £160+ is a reasonable price for an LC gig. To be fair, I have actually paid that (for the actual gig in question) but I still don't think it's reasonable even if it includes having Len's babies ec...

Re: Konzerthaus in Vienna?

I suspect it's just down to what the different promoters in the different countries/regions the tour passes through think they can get away with. This is just another way of putting the second part of the equation, which I mentioned in my previous posts but you seem to have ignored: the venue/promo...

Re: Konzerthaus in Vienna - Sept. 24 - ON SALE

It's a mad mad mad world. Not really, the price is entirely logical - see my comments above. I don't know the venue in Frankfurt, but I bet it's bigger than the Konzerthaus. The venue has to recoup the artist fee through ticket sales, hence the price has to be higher in Vienna because the venue is ...

Re: Konzerthaus in Vienna?

:!: :?: :!: :? Tom, Not sure what point you are making there. As I wrote above, the ticket price is first of all a function of the artist's fee. And don't forget the Konzerthaus is one of the smallest venues on the tour so they need to charge more than larger venues would in order to recoup that fe...

Re: Konzerthaus in Vienna - Sept. 24 - ON SALE

I am already impressed by the place and its staff having received emails apologising for the problems with the web site and for having actually charged my card when the site said it could not be charged! I echo your sentiments. When I went down there on Monday morning I spoke to a very nice lady wh...

Re: Konzerthaus in Vienna - Sept. 24 - ON SALE

I cannot believe -- the best seats for Leonard Cohen concert in Vienna Konzerthaus are almost twice as expensive as comparable tickets for traditional New Years concert with Strauss Festival Orchester Wien! The venue has to recoup its costs in hiring the artist. If Cohen tickets are twice as expens...

Re: Konzerthaus in Vienna - Sept. 24 - ON SALE

I went for the €200 tickets as well. Eye-watering stuff but an opportunity like this doesn't come along very often in one's lifetime. It's a lovely hall and is only 10 mins walk from where I live. Regarding the oft-quoted line from "Take This Waltz", I do think there is some evidence that the Konzer...

Re: Audio downloads

I broke down and installed a new client a couple of days ago and sighned up for a Dime account, and though their search is absolutely attrocious, the downloading itself seems to be working... Personally I've never had any problems with the search on Dime. You know you have to add a + sign before ea...

Re: Touts

In theory someone could sign up on eBay with a new account just for this purpose, make a ridiculous bid like £1 million and thereby ruin the auction. Not that I would advocate any spoiling tactics like that.

Re: London July 17

Did people notice if there were many empty seats? I'd love to know what happened to all those tickets that suddenly appeared on the Ticketmaster resale thing at hugely inflated prices on the day tickets went on sale.

Re: Brussels, 20 october: confirmed!

* I already started a thread on this show.

* Your use of the word "confirmed" is incorrect. Just because tickets are on sale does not mean a show is confirmed (we know this from Berlin earlier in the year). A show is only confirmed when it appears on the list from Cohen's management.
