Rock'n'roll is supposed to provoke outrage - but not from fans over ticket prices. 'Despite three years of local deflation, prices are climbing exorbitantly,' complained one music fan in an e-mail to SAR. 'It is ridiculous.' The Suede concert - at Queen Elizabeth Stadium on January 20 - is a case in point. As our Jake van der Kamp-style graph shows, Suede have played here four times and on each occasion promoters have charged more. Top tickets for Friday's show will cost 172 per cent more for best seats than when the band were fresh and riding the crest of the Brit-pop wave in 1995. Suede promoter, Nigel Peters of Midas Promotions, whinged that artist fees and air fares had risen, plus the government was now charging a 20 per cent venue commission on top of usual taxes. 'I can honestly tell you that this show will not be profitable even if we sell out,' he moaned.
