It'll be interesting to see whther there is anything on the new editions that will warrant an upgrade.

As someone who only has a few Cave albums, sounds fantastic news.

Ace news. The new Leeds Academy would have been nice but Manchester or Sheffield will do me just fine

You're not kidding- the sound quality/levels on the '80s albums is atrocious.

I'd never heard of the Troxy before now but it looks like a beautiful place and I am sorely tempted to have a weekend in London to check it out

Indeed. I;ve just picked up 2 for Manchester and with fees added it cames to £78

I had planned to go to one of the Londond shows as well but I won't be bothering at that price.

If The Overlook Hotel had a bingo hall that is what it would look like

I don't think 32.50 is too bad

Really?

The Abattoir Blues tour in Nov 2004 was £25. That's a hell of a jump.

7.50 in 4 years?

Ultimately, I'd have to ask myself if I would pay it, and I would.

Yeah I consider 30% in 4 years a pretty hefty jump but checking back it was also £25 for the shows earlier this year so it looks even worse.

I have paid it but it doesn't mean I'm happy about it. Gig prices have been rising to ridiculous levels over the past few years to such an extenet that I really have to ration which bigger bands I go an see.

TBH i get more annoyed at the fees. I've had to fork out £13 in fees which include a £3 postage fee that will probably be sent first class. I could also get them to send me a pdf ticket or collect at the box office but I would still have to pay the £3 which is utterly ridiculous

You should charge them a handling charge when you collect the tickets

Our Tom Waits tickets cost us an extra 20 odd quid over the 95 quid ticket price

I walked down and bought Brighton tickets from the box-office, suprisingly there was no handling fee!

Nice one. I wish more venues would offer that option but they seem to be a dwindling breed.
