The Good old Days!

I was looking through an old photo album where I keep my ticket stubs for concerts I have been too. What a eye opener! Just like everything, the price of concert tickets has sky rocketed. Get a load of this:

In 1977 Billy Joel was $7.50 in Syracuse, NY!
Todd Rundgren was $6.00!
In 1981 The Rolling Stones, Foreigner and George Thorogood costs $15 in Buffalo, NY!
Jethro Tull was $10.50 in Rochester!
Crosby Stills and Nash were $12.50!
In 1983 David Bowie was 13.50 in Syracuse!
In 1984 Rod Stewart was $15.00 in Rochester!
In 1986 Elton John was $11.00 for lawn seats in Saratoga!
In 1989 The Bee Gees were $17.00 in Saratoga!
Here is a pricey one - in 1989 Paul McCartney was $34 in Toronto (Maybe that was Canadian $)
In 1992 Eric Clapton was $19.00 in Saratoga!
In 1994 Rush was $22.50 in Rochester!
To give you a comparison CSN&Y went up to $23.50 in 1994!

You get the picture. As you can see I am a fan of classic rock and still see these artists when I can, but that is in another photo album :)

Off to work on my balloon painting so I can post the finished product soon!
