The most I have paid to see an artist this year is £29.50 and he filled a 2,000 seater hall. (Christy Moore)

I saw Lau recently at a village hall in the middle of nowhere (look up Thorganby in the East Riding and you will see what I mean), I think they were about £12.00. It was packed and standing room only.

People will pay to see high quality music. They will not pay to see low quality.

Especially in a recession.
