|Getting a ticket was never this hard at way ahead records.....|
Heh - reminds me of the Larry Miller sketch I used to listen to with my brother.. "Hey fellas, if we bought our own bar, we could live together forever!" - Don´t say you never had similar ideas.
Still, I digress. The genius collective mind at Queremos.com.br have gone ahead and done what every school council dreamt of doing. They work out the cost of booking a band, and then they charge a small number of people enough to cover the cost. Then they sell the rest of the tickets at a more modest price. If the gig sells out the initial investors get to go for free. If it sells quite well then the initial investors end up paying the same as everyone else.
The next gig is Primal Scream, no less! - Here´s how the money works:
- Gig costs R$112,000
- First 560 punters pay R$200 - this covers the cost, and the gig goes ahead.
- If a further 660 punters buy a ticket for R$120, the first 560 get at least R$80 refunded, meaning they pay the same as everyone else.
- If a further 1,670 punters buy a ticket at R$120, the first 560 go free.
Oh, and if the first 560 tickets don´t sell, everyone gets their money back.
Go on... what have you got to lose!
