To go or not to go, that is the question

This morning, on finding out that The Police are going on a world tour again for the first time in almost 25 years, I made up my mind to be there when they got to my neck of the woods.

After looking it up on the Internets, I'm not so sure:

The Police 08/09/07 - Standing Tickets
Start: t.b.a. Price: £ 155.34 (€ 225)
Venue: Wembley Stadium, London, United Kingdom


I think I'll sleep on it.

How much? Sting had better be perched on the arm of your chair singing to you for that much!

I know! It's outrageous, isn't it?

::remembers when they could be seen for ƒ35, when 1 pound was very nearly 3 guilders::

What the FUCK? OMG. I was excited about pointing this out to my boyfriend, who's a HUGE Police fan, but... £155 is insane.

It's truly shocking, is what it is. Or someone's out to make a quick buck.

They're having a laugh (I hope it doesn't sell - though I suspect I'll be very wrong)

It's The Police. It'll sell. But at £155, I guess you won't be joining me?

*whistles* That's a lot of money...

The question I would be asking is: would you regret it more if you went, or more if you spent the money?

Ach, 'tis only money! Though right now, I'm not sure I want to spend it.

That is just ridiculous. I most certainly won't be tempted!

I know...yet I still am! It's The police -- I used to love them back in the day.

it is a lot of money, but it's also the police. i've waited 26 years to see them live. they shaped my youth in ways i can't explain. i got tickets to one of the madison square garden shows. i'll also be getting tix here in philadelphia and maybe one other, if i can.

it's a lot of money. some of it is going to charity. maybe that'll take the sting out of the price for some. (no pun intended ;) )

Which is exactly why I'm still dithering. And also, because there's a chance they might be getting to Holland too on their tour, which would mean I could go see them without having to add the airfare and the cost of an hotel...
