You don't have an idea of how hard some people are finding things. I hate to use myself as an example and I hope I don't get flamed for this, but I can't even afford otc pain medication. Less than 20 dollars, pounds, whatever might not seem like alot, but right now I can't even scrounge up that. Times are hard and not only for me, right now it's hard for millions.whitequeen20 wrote: ↑Tue Jan 12, 2021 11:33 pmExactly, it's not an expensive ticket and with all he'll be paying out he likely won't make that much unless he sells a huge amount of tickets. Even if he does there's no saying what he'll do with the money, he's been doing tons of charity work this year and may well donate money to help out of work musicians or some other charity. Either way I don't get why people expect entertainers to work for free, they wouldn't expect doctors, nurses, shop assistants etc to go to work and not get paid so why should it be different for musicians.Nicki wrote: ↑Tue Jan 12, 2021 11:18 pmIndeed. A lot of things come together with such an event. The bandmembers are happy to get a chance to work and make money. The streaming service isn’t free either. And so on and so on.whitequeen20 wrote: ↑Tue Jan 12, 2021 10:57 pm
Adam is like all the other entertainers and plenty other people in regular jobs this year and had no work, difference is a lot of entertainers don't get paid anything while they aren't working so why should he pay money of his own for the venue, band, whoever's filming the show, crew needed like lighting, sound engineers etc? He has bills to pay like everyone else so why should he work for free and actually pay money out to do it?
A ticket is 18,50$. I really doubt that Adam is making money with that. It will probably just cover the expenses.
If this would be for charity it would be one thing. Like I said, if I could have afforded to watch the Bowie Tribute if would have done so, ok with the knowledge at least some of it would be donated.
