Spigotz: Out of area people, CAC markets to the upper crust, people who value the entertainment value of a former Beatle over paying for their utilites. I don't know. I am middle class, over 50, husband working full time, I am a student, we can't afford it. Gas up, mortgage, utilities, insurance (health and life), food, my school tab. Certainly can't do 165.00. All those things have to come first, but if someone wants to pay that, good for them.

My screen name is nobud74, and that's because I hate mass beer, but love craft beers. If you are drinking some crafts you will pay $6 with most of them in the $4-$5 range, but you can still get a bud most places for $3. Good entertainment needs to be paid for and you won't get it at $5 tickets. Yes, rents are up and so are the quality of places available. I get sick of hearing about the "working" man. Uh, you choose your profession and way of life. Nobody tells you that you have to work for $9 an hour, your life choices have an impact and those choices are yours and no one else. Williamsport has more and more entertainment coming and it is diverse and very welcome. We don't get to much of it because of scheduling, but when we do we enjoy it very much. We went to see Lyle Lovett a couple of weeks ago and it was about 45 a ticket and it was great for over two hours of music.

Maybe if the CAC booked more acts that people actually wanted to see, they would sell out just as quickly. Only a thought...

Where are all the posters claiming no jobs! Only minimum wage jobs! Then explain how several thousand tickets, at $165 a pop, sold out in hours?
