My best friend, McKenna, bought a Michael Bolton Music Video VHS tape from her aunt's garage sale when we were in college. We loved that tape. When we were roommates we'd battle every stressful situation (writers block, getting proposed to in Spanish on a first date, getting dumped by boyfriends, etc.) by pumping the volume and singing "Steel Bars" at the top of our lungs. There is nothing in life that a little "Time, Love, and Tenderness" can't fix.
So you can imagine our euphoria upon hearing that Michael Bolton would be performing in Wendover, NV. Our Michael Bolton. We were elated to find that we could ride the "fun bus" to Wendover along with all the Senior gamblers for a mere $11. Then we were dismayed to find that the tickets are $249. That's 2 HUNDRED FORTY-NINE dollars. Wha?
Well, we're not going. And we're enormous fans. Which brings me to my next question: Who IS going?
Does Michael have any hardcore fans willing to pay prices like that? Does any musician have fans willing to pay prices like that?
