I think the most ridiculous I saw was a cancellation extra(optional)if the artist could not appear, it was only about £1.50 but was ludicrous, not least because the consumer has the right to a refund anyway in that scenario.

The ticket in question was for Killing Joke around 4 years ago.The face valve was a very reasonable £25 but with all the add ons added up to around £35 just under a 30% increase, not a great sum of money for a excellent show but you just feel that promoters & venues are taking the pi55.
Well, yeah. But as always, if you think the total price is too much, then don't go.

Yes, venues and promoters do take the pee, even more so as it looks like they've put prices (and costs) up. There's been two concert dates recently released that I wanted to go to, but when I got to the final checkout with all the added costs, I just couldn't justify spending that amount of money and so didn't bother completing.

Not at all Al, he plays lead guitar.

This is they - production ain't great mind

Sounds pretty decent to me.

Is he following Dad as lead guitar ? I have this mental picture of you as a Ray Thomas Moody Blues type of musician: writing songs, a bit of singing and of course the flute.

Finally Genesis at the O2 last Thursday
I thought it was awesome particularly when they did Domino. Sad in a way to see Phil Collins having to get across the stage using a walking stick but loved the humour he was still able to bring to the night. Really did not want it to end.

Absolutely brilliant and I found it very emotional - you can see Phil Collins still loves it and the audience interaction was brilliant. I really think this is the last Genesis tour...

Unfortunately I fear you may be right. However, that may be down to Banks and Rutherford and how they feel. They apparently both rated Nic Collins tour performances on drums with Banks saying that his ability has allowed them to include more complex things than they had expected. Hackett is also still available and technically excellent. That leaves a place for a lead vocalist. Maybe it's not completely over? After all the tour t-shirt does say 'the last domino?' A question rather than a statement?

Just arrived at the BIC in Bournemouth to see Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds, Loved the album, Hoping this is just as good. (Not a band per say but it's live and my first live gig in over two years)

It was brilliant, Justin Hayward has still got it, The whole show so worth it.

Royal Blood last weekend

On the subject of extra costs, it still irks me that these are there, I've attached a picture of the price for 2 tickets to see Machine Gun Kelly in Birmingham which my lad asked me to look into (dont know why as he's carp) it shows the breakdown of the 'costs'

Yes, it must've been emotional. I love Genesis, but mainly the older stuff (Pre Duke).

There was a point, I think about 12 years or so ago, when they toured and there was talk of getting Peter Gabriel back for it. And I think they had discussions on it, but old wounds opened and it was dropped. I blame Tony Banks. Either way, I'd have been at the front of the queue for that ticket.
