    Nothing but pure greed. IMHO anyone who pays those prices is crazy, especially when there are only two members left who recorded the album.

    Oh my gosh. This LaneOne experience....

    No one wants any of that stuff. All people care about are the tickets. All of that is just an excuse to jack up the ticket prices, an attempt to drape some clothing over the naked greed. Well, sorry, folks. The fabric is see-through.

    Hey, it was just one show in honour of Glenn. Oh wait...

    The worst nose bleed seats are $164 plus fees!

    If demand supports these kind of prices, this will probably be a precursor to a 2020 Hotel California North American tour!

    Even as someone who is not opposed to this incarnation of the band, I can't imagine paying these kind of prices for 2 of the 5 Eagles that were on that album. And you get a cover version of Try and Love Again. Crazy stuff!!
    I checked out the cost of tickets on their website out of curiosity. Crazy prices indeed! While another tour is possible, they may be testing the waters for a Las Vegas residency.

    Not making a huge statement there. Just remembering how we were once told to stop complaining because it's just one show, but now there seems to be an endless road ahead full of possibilities, like The Lane One packages - whatever they are...

    Some people were getting quite upset...trying to allay their concerns is not the same as saying “stop complaining” (although I can remember that being said to some of us not happy with the KC Honors fiasco). But maybe we’re thinking of different threads or something.

    Above all I'm amazed by how far this is going. At first it was just a healing thing for them or something. At first I didn't think this was just a money thing, but more and more I'm starting to agree with those who have always said that it is.

    The money factor doesn’t surprise me. It’s been that way since HFO. Reviving the idea of playing the entire HC album was unexpected however; I suppose it’s a way to make the concert more of an event for the Vegas crowd/venue and justify the prices. Otherwise why would they bother with it at this point.

    So true, and I LOVE the bolded line, Soda!

    The writing has long been on the wall since Classic East/West for those who have cared to look.

    I think I'm one who has called it what it is (a shameless $ grab) from day one (or shortly thereafter at the latest), but even I am shocked how long this has been going on and how blatantly obvious it has become.
