I don't wanna support it, but I feel like enough people will/are that the band won't really notice or care if some people aren't happy.

Edit: I wish Dee wasn't banned, I'd be interested in seeing his thoughts right about now
Yeah I see that too. Its 20 more than Emirates 2013, which was 24 full songs, plus Isolated System and 2 drum&bass jams.

Well, the U2 360 set was with overheads of something like 750,000-a-day even when shows were not on, yet they still had a few thousand tickets per show at 30 (nosebleeds, yeah, but still), and GA was less than 70 (I think it was 65 but I'm not certain).

It probably is the case this is pricey because of all the drones that Matt's hinted are in the toybox. Even if it is agreed that the Psycho Tour was pricey for what it was... maybe Q Prime charge higher fees than their old management do, ehdunno.
