I have been a Van Morrison fan for as long as I can remember and love almost all of his work.
I have seen him in concert more times than I can remember and so I was thrilled to get a pre-sale link to his upcoming Glasgow gig on 24th October. Unfortunately once you take in to account booking fees the cost per ticket is about £85 (£75 face value).
I have paid this much before (Leonard Cohen). But I knew then I was going to get a least 2 hours from a performer who wanted to treat his audience to a great (as it turned out fantastic show).
For Van I might get 40 - 70 sullen minutes. It's just too much to pay, I cannot really afford it, and sadly wont be going.
