    The bundle is a rip-off to sell more tickets, though - I'll wait for Friday.

    Or maybe the bundle isn't a rip off - nearly 25 for a single ticket? Bloody hell Johnny, the Healers shows last year were 7!!!!

    I suspect there will be a warm up show between now and the first date. JM recently said on twitter that he enjoyed the N&D and DI gigs.

    But why charge 4 times the price for the same show, just because one is a warm up? Johnny doesn't have the kind of fanbase to command 25 per ticket - he's trading on nostalgia. Hell, even Moz only charges 35-40!

    Amy, it's an invitation to treat. If you think ticket price is too expensive, you don't have to buy it.

    I'll listen to the full album before I buy any tickets, I think.

    Last year's two gigs at Deaf Institute and 2013 UK tour are totally different.

    Johnny and crew will travel around the country. They have to add overheads to ticket price.

    I wouldn't pay anything to see a Johnny Marr show. In my opinion a Smiths song is a Morrissey song with a different backing group. BUT if you think someone can travel around and play for 7 a show at these small venues you are really out of touch. The only people that might do that are beginners with nothing to lose. If his ticket prices are running about 2/3 of what Morrissey asks I'd say he's doing really well. Most people don't tend to want to hear the guitar as much as the vocals, and while he is quite technically advanced a lot of his expertise is in recording multiple parts. You're not going to hear him sound like a Smiths record and he's not the type of instrumental guitarist that people go see. Basically it's a person playing pop songs without a frontman. Most of you want to hear him play things he recorded more than two decades ago, and will probably accidentally get excited when one of his newer songs fools you into thinking it's Hand In Glove or something.
    The fact it's being discussed here in Morrissey news really says it all.

    You mean his record label are making him hike the price, or there won't be enough profit to go round.

    I don't know how they price the concert ticket, but surely they add some overheads in order to make profit.

    It's not that 20 + booking fees is expensive for a gig ticket, more like the 7 for the couple of Manchester shows last year was ridiculously fucking cheap, which is probably why they sold out the same day they went on sale. 3 songs from the new Marr album have been released for media play already, and it's a given he's bound to play at least a couple of Smiths songs. If you still don't think it's worth it, don't fucking go - no one's forcing you to. Christ- some poeple round here will moan at anything.
