From what I'm seeing in the presale, PIT tickets are $155.

Holy crap!!!

I'm not sure how much PIT tickets were before, but is $155 that bad to see Ozzy, Motley Crue, Rob Halford, BLS, etc.?

Yes. in '05, pit tickets were $75, with Maiden, Sabbath, and BLS on the mainstage.

I love Motley but they are just coasting on by now. In 2004/5 on RED,WHITE & CRUE they played some monster sets. Now it's the same damn songs, year in and year out. At some recent Canadian headlining shows, they played like 12-14 fucking songs. Throw the fans a bone! Play fucking AFRAID from Generation Swine, FAKE from New Tattoo or Down At The Whiskey from SOLA.

I agree that the greatest hits sets are getting old, but Crue Fest 2 was damn cool. It was great to hear Slice Of Your Pie, Rattlesnake Shake, Without You, Sticky Sweet, She Goes Down, and Time For Change.

I guess Ozzy and Sharon got the message that the fans were pissed off about Blizzard and Diary being re-recorded with Trujillo and Bordin. 30th anniversary reissue is due November, will include both versions plus a few outtakes and video footage. Ozzy said he wants to do the full length albums live.

I am kind of surprised Nikki hadn't tried to get Sixx AM as a support for GNR during Crue's down time.

I don't know - solo Halford? When he should be teaming up Priest with Iron Maiden, of course Bruce and Sharon have no love for each other.

I would seriously consider skipping a Maiden concert if I had to endure Priest first.

I know this is off topic but, they just announced that Vince Neil is playing a solo gig at a county fair not far from me. $25 a ticket. Beats what the Crue has been charging and you're pretty much guaranteed the same setlist. It'll sell out.

Actually, he plays more varied stuff than Crue. Not too long ago he played Piece Of Your Action, Red Hot, and something else from SATD (Might have been Knock 'Em Dead Kid, don't really remember).

The only thing he played different than what the Crue normally plays when I saw him was On With The Show (which they even manage to pull out every once in a great while), and 2 of his own songs. The rest was a normal Crue setlist. I wasn't really complaining, since it's about 1/3rd of the price to see Vince solo as opposed to seeing the Crue.

Yeah, but Vince is by far the weakest link in the Crue.

Actually, all of the Crue are weak links except Mick. That was the only concert I've ever left feeling pissed because it was a shitty show, and I didn't even pay for tickets! I won decent tickets from a radio show.

They've really only done OWTS completely on the RW&C tour. They played part of it on the SOLA tour...it was a brutal tease. On With The Show is hands down my favorite Crue song, I'd do anything to hear the whole song live.
