Next week’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame show looks like it’s going to be a mess. Many of the inductees are fighting, some aren’t coming, and many aren’t playing.
On top of that, there are roughly 2,900 seats at the Barclays Center on Stubhub.com right now. Plus, on Ticketmaster, I was able to locate many good seats at face value in sections close to the stage. The 200 sections in the upper tier are at this point pretty open. The only place tickets aren’t being sold are on the floor, where Jann Wenner is conducting his usual expensive dinner for what remains of the record business. In recent years, Wenner has start bringing in corporate friends as the record companies have consolidated and vanished. Of the nominees, Linda Ronstadt isn’t coming at all. Cat Stevens is still considering his options. KISS won’t perform because they’re all fighting with each other. Nirvana can’t perform because Kurt Cobain is dead. That leaves Peter Gabriel, and Hall & Oates.
