I think the price is ridiculous. I am a 44 year old woman with a good job and 
good credit and I am not paying that price. What about your typical college 
student? How can they see a Prince show at that price? The man is giving us a 
message about who he wants his fanbase to be, because he has no reason to 
believe his current fanbase could easily pay that kind of price.

Moreover, $300 for a general admission ticket is larceny. I MIGHT understand it 
if that was the cost of the first few rows in an intimate venue, with other 
seats going for a more moderate price, but to charge that kind of cash to stand 
in line and MAYBE be able to see  shows a distinct lack of respect for his fans.

I hope this is not a predictor of future prices. I can't imagine being a fan 
this long, only to be priced out the market.
