I just bought the recently released The Doors Live in Vancouver 1970. I had to get it because I was at the concert.
I am enjoying reliving a moment in time, but I’m not here to review the CD.
What I found interesting was the poster on the liner notes advertising the event. Tickets were $3, $4, and $5.
I had a minimum wage job in the summer of 1970 paying me $1.50/hr. Two hours of minimum wage work got me in to one of the top acts of the day. Try getting into a top act today for less than the equivalent of a full day of minimum wage work.
Not sure if I have a point except that I think I was a lucky kid to be able to see groups like the Doors, Hendrix, Stewart/Faces, the Who for the prices I paid. I actually remember feeling ripped off when we had to pay $7 to see Led Zeppelin.
