but seriously, it's too sad, though, it's obvious of course, that the huge FOS meeting in russia is impossible this time
@Gabi -well, I was actually trying to tell that, just hypothetically, I'm ready to pay such money to the guys themselves,(in case I have an opportunity to allocate such money...u know, I'm also not a millionaire, and I also share your position that life and family expenses go first! and I agree with u!) -but not to the promoters, venue holders etc -coz I really want to believe that it's not the guys themselves who make such insane rates, but all the rest in this chain, whom I really don't want to feed
But anyways, I bought a ticket, and I think at a really high rate - it could be at least $30 lower - and still I think that, besides that scops' management charges the rate, it's our promoters and venues who also don't miss their chance to make their high profit on us, fans, who are ready to pay any money just to see the band! -they know it and they use us - and it's sad. and we buy the tickets at these rates ( coz actually we have only one choice -to pay what they ask or not to go to the show at all
- and I understand that many russian fans can't afford the tickets, or many ppl just won't go there on principle -and I understand their position as well...) - so we, those who bought the tickets ( and hah! the most expensive tickets are sold!!!) -just confirm to the promoters and all the rest, that we're ready to pay - thus it's a "closed circle"...
So i also bought the ticket to St Peter's show - and $200 is a pretty big amount for me -but my desire to see the guys is so storng, that now I try not to think about it, but to think that I'll see them again - I'll hear magic Klaus' voice, Ill enjoy the playing and that atmosphere, besides - it will be something new for me - a different sound, a different show - and I'm sure I'll like it
After all, it's not an ordinary rock show -it's a show with the orchestra -and there won't be standing area there - so yep, the tickets' rates were supposed to be higher than on a usual show, but not so high, of couse...
It's only show- business.. though, still I want to believe that here not much depends on the guys themselves, and they can do nothing with it.. but now I'm not sure in anything anymore and I'll never know the truth...
That's why I don't wanna but this negative on me and just prepare for the show, and fo rhe guys' meeting
