Saturday night, after reading a flurry of tweets from Jay-Z and Kanye West's show at the Izod Center, I bought tickets to nosebleed seats for last night's Watch The Throne show at the Garden. It was worth it, thoughespecially since yesterday afternoon, those same tickets cost $350, with a couple of pit seats going for $1500. (Tickets for tonight's show, as of this writing, range from $200 to $15,000, which really puts StubHub's warning that tickets "may be priced above face value" to the test.) Sure, you're dealing with the secondary marketplace here, but since Jay and Kanye are all about the good life, they should be made aware of what would make a $1500 ticket worth it.
