History lesson

Can you even get ONE ticket for $250 these days? In the early 70s I saw all the greats and near greats for $4.50, $5.50 and $6.50 at the Music Hall (now the Boch Center, of all things), Orpheum (then known as the Aquarius), and Boston Garden. Led Zeppelin at the Tea Party and Cream at the Psychedelic Supermarket in the late 60s were even cheaper than that.

I'm not that old

But I remember when I considered $15 to be way too much money to see Tangerine Dream at the Somerville Theater (to my regret, in later years).

In this particular crime I think the victim should get half the money in a criminal should get half the time. Nothing's for free don't be a dummy or desperate.
