    + BF normally means booking fee. If you are getting it through a distributor (a site that promotes tickets and sells them on behalf of the event) there will also be a booking fee ontop of the ticket price.

    Don't forget it is a proximity and population thing.

    Australia is the arse end of the world and therefore high cost of getting gig equipment etc here.

    Also limited number of punks/skins or audience to view them.

    Open bar, like BYO?
    No, Hifi is a pub, you gotta buy drinks there, and its fucking expensive there too. :ecouteurs:

    45 bucks is kinda regular for relatively big gigs in Melbourne, although plenty of good international bands still manage to tour and only charge say AUS $10-15. I suppose thats what you get for GBH playing at a shitty venue like the hifi rather than say the arthouse.

    This is true, I've already debated costs with the people bringing them out, they've told me next to nothing other than were playing. I doubt were even getting paid for it, if so we'll arrange to put it back into something worth while. Such as the Black Star anarchist PA collective or something. On another note, the Varukers played in AUS last year and charged only $20 at a much better venue. I'll talk to GBH about it directly at the gig dont you worry.

    Shit, that's more than they're charging here even (NZ$42) :/

    Haven't decided whether or not to go see 'em yet myself as I'm pretty low on funds atm.

    Fuck that noise. GBH or any fucking punk band is not worth paying 15 or 20 U.S. dollars (on rare occasions) for one big act and then locals. Id go to that show and protest outside. Fuck traveling and the cost, GBH has toured here for much less, although the very last time they came they wanted 22 bucks or some stupid shit, but i didnt pay that either, GBH can fuck off for charging that much, its not fucking punk rock anymore at those prices. Its sex pistol sellout level. Next GBH will have their own perfume and electrical appliances. If i were you Kaaos, id say that straight up before you guys play.

    And dont start with the whole "oh you know the Standard of living is higher now you know dude". Yea? well then you should take into account that the majority of the listeners of GBH are fucking poor and cant pay these ridiculous amounts, stupid ass. There the ones with the millions of records and sales, fucks sake.

    its mostly cos they playing at a stupid venue, its a big time commercial venue. The hifi is probs taking the biggest cut from the gig i'd reckon.

    geeze VB you make out as if I put on the show! comparatively speaking yes its a lot of money, i probably wouldn't pay if I wasn't playing. Then again I'd pay over $100 to see motorhead. As butcher said, most likely the venue is taking the biggest cut, then again GBH are rockstars. my position is its better older bands quit while there ahead, GBH havent released a good record since city babies revenge and that was 84? I think...

    Im not attacking you, alls i said is if i were you id say something about that bullshit. I know its probably the venue, or the piece of shit promoters, who cares, its fucking ridiculous. Dont take this the wrong way but i hope noone goes and the promoters and the bar have to pay out the ass to cover the bands cost even though theyre probably charging at least 50 percent more per ticket on what it would actually cost to cover the band.

    Bugger I thought we were popular :'( hahaha Nah I get ya. I don't want it to set a precedent either. I'd personally be more interested in getting bands such as Germ Attak, SSR, Nerveskade, Bog People and The Helpless out to Australia rather than old farts. Although the day after GBH Leprosy are playing with Isterismo (Japan) at the Arthouse, two internationals in a weekend, what are the odds?!
