I already saw the show once (balcony seat) and got my playbill signed. Iím still debating whether to sell off my $1,500 pair of 5th row seats or go. I can only see what these things list for on stubhub, not what they actually sell for. Itís the final show, but with my luck heíll extend or have to do a make-up show after.

Re: Springsteen on Broadway

Yeah, sold them on Thursday. Stubhub took $800 of that. I figured PayPal would take a few percent, but was surprised to see the full $7,200 there today. So $5,700 profit. Heh, 57. I guess I have to pay taxes on that?
I hate scalpers so much, but here I am... itís a broken system.

That’s cool. That means someone actually spent close to $10k on the tickets after all the fees. If someone doesn’t think twice about dropping that, that’s on them. I do it on the side to make some extra cash sometimes. The only reason I justified going is I sold my extra $400 ticket for $1500. The prices were ridiculous but I didn’t want to miss it. Hell, people were spending $1000 + on secondary market tickets to the book appearances that were only $35 and only got you next to him for like 5 seconds.

Re: Springsteen on Broadway

This was excellent and worth watching.

The highlight was him being mostly honest about what his critics have accused him of for years. It’s an act. Just as Brian Wilson didn’t know how to surf, Bruce barely knew how to drive and didn’t have a license when he wrote all those songs about the the road stretching out before you and it could take you toward any possible new fate. He never worked in a factory either.

And the show (just as his career) has a pretty clear line between everything before Born in the USA and after. There’s some excellent renditions here of The Rising and Ghost of Tom Joad, but they are inferior songs.

Re: Springsteen on Broadway

I enjoyed it but was actually surprise by how somber it was
