Some friends of mine went to the Coldplay concert in Atlanta on Monday night. They sat in the fourth row back, took some AWESOME phone pictures, and paid a couple hundred bucks for the tickets. I just looked up the round-trip cost of an airline ticket from here to Rome, Italy; that's going for about a thousand bucks. And we reported last school year on Miley Cyrus tickets selling for more than $1,000 each.
But it seems unbelievable that some brokers are asking TENS OF THOUSANDS for a spot at President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration - an event that's supposed to be free. Of course it's more historic than any concert or vacation, so it makes sense that some people would pay to be there. But would you be willing to spend more than $20,000 to see it up close?
