Dave Matthews Band and Pat Benatar Lead Rock Hall Voting

There is one week left to go before the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s fan vote closes. Currently Dave Matthews Band is leading the pack. They’ve received almost 900K votes, which is 100K more than the second place artist Pat Benetar. The top 5 is made up of the following

Dave Matthews Band – 894,847 votes

Pat Benatar – 799, 414 votes

Doobie Brothers – 714, 102

Soundgarden – 656, 270

Judas Priest- 614,829

It’s important to note that Dave Matthews Band wasn’t even in the top 5 when voting started back in October. Back then Benatar was in the number spot, while Doobie Brothers were in the second place rank.

According to Market Watch both Live Nation and Ticketmaster claim that buyers are getting a good value on concert tickets even though ticket prices have gone up year after year.

Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino told Market Watch that he recently told investors that concert tickets are “an incredible bargain” in comparison to other entertainment options. I don’t know what entertainment options he could be thinking of, but Rapino made the case that increasing prices provides a “huge opportunity for our bottom line.” Ticketmaster president Joe Berchtold concurred with this assessment.

Georgetown University finance professor Jim Angel revealed why he agrees with the box office giants saying

“It’s sort of like how investment bankers underprice initial public offerings. They want to make sure that the investors have a good experience and that there’s no unsold stock left at the end of the offering.”

Angel also points out that the lower price comes at a cost with the scalper market thriving.

However, according to the same report US congress is investigating six ticketing companies and their practice.
