€90+ for a gig in the Marquee is absolutely scandalous.

It cost me 96 euro per ticket, not including booking fee. One off so i went with it, but i agree, the pricing is completely over the top.

I agree it is very expensive,so i passed myself for Vedder,once the €60 tickets were gone, but from Aikens point of view, they had no problem shifting them, so its the supply and demand thing, not saying its right, but its just the way it is. For the Marquee, his average ticket prices were clearly higher than 3arena, as there were hardly any tickets available at €60, i assume his management only accept a minimum fee to do a gig, so for acts of his quality, tickets will always be more expensive at the Marquee due to the relatively small capacity versus say 3arena.

Elton john and Cliff Richard ticekts are between 60 and 85 so 90 isn't that bad considering how popular vedder and glenn hansard are...as someone said supply and demand...it sold out pretty quickly

tickets for elbow are 60 and tickets for irish muck like the coronas and picture this are 40...vedder is worth 10 times the admission price of the coronas in fairness

Paid €90 to see Dolly Parton down there a few years ago, money well spent.
