I was thinking about buying tickets for Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and then when I looked up the ticket price it made it a lot easier to say no.
Not because it’s expensive, because it’s NOT. God knows I’ve paid 5 or 6 times that much for other shows. But all the stupid separate fees listed totally annoyed me.
I don’t need to know all the breakdown. Just tell me, “Tickets are $35.25.” It’s not like I have the option not to pay any of those charges, except the mailing fee. I’m curious what the “Charity Fee” might be, even though there isn’t one.
