Former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese criticized Pearl Jam and other bands charging big money for concert tickets.
“My mind is blown. 🤯. Bands charging $300 – $1000 + for a ticket? Up to $2,950 for a meet and greet/photo opportunity?
I guess it is about giving the people what they want? I don’t know if I’d want to meet someone that would be willing to pay that much for a photo. I’d be scared. 🤣😂🤣
Btw. It was the Pearl Jam prices I quoted in my post.”
A fan commented, “that’s why Pearl Jam tried to stop Ticketmaster way back in the day.”
Dave responded, “it’s Pearl Jams ticket prices that I am quoting in the original post!”
Another fan commented, “Imagine having the audacity to demand only people in your tax bracket deserve to grace your presence…
Thanks Dave for being a real one. For taking time out of your life to grant an audience to those of us who you’ve influenced and inspired. Your actions as a human being for mine are just as exemplary for me as your artistic accomplishments.”
Dave responded, “I remember when the fun of it all was colored by being a fan of music and hanging out with the fans of the music!
Thank YOU and so many others for keeping it this way for me!”
