GUEST,Tom Bliss Fees (concert admission prices) (133* d) RE: Fees (concert admission prices) 26 Oct 10


That is also true, Tim, and there are lots of other good reasons why some artists may be happy to accept a lower fee, or a smaller percentage, or a cheaper door/reduced gate or whatever other deal. None of that negates the fact that a good artist is worth good money, and that s/he has every right not to compromise on this if he doesn't wish to, or need to - for any of those other reasons.

Will, my statement is well-proven in all areas of commerce. It is not universal, and probably applies less in the informed, multi-layered folk 'market,' but it does apply and I've a mass of personal experience of it. 'Reassuringly expensive" remember? Though the 'product' does, of course, always have to be worth it. (And 10 for 90 minutes of transportation by a great artist like him above, certainly is).

Tom
