Two-hundred bucks for The Who? What?

comment

Eight reasons tickets for The Who’s Nov. 13 concert at the Delta Center are priced as high as $200:

nn

8. It’s still cheaper than Rolling Stones tickets, and Roger Daltry remembers the words to the songs. Maybe.

nn

7. They’ve run out of high-demand music to license as CSI themes; a heavily discounted “You Better You Bet” will kick off the new CSI: Pocatello.

nn

6. No corporate tour sponsor after “Net Nanny Presents The Who” negotiations fell through.

nn

5. The Who haven’t released one of their “best-of” cash-cow albums in, like, months.

nn

4. To offset high Utah gas prices, Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. will personally chauffer you to the concert.

nn

3. On the downside, he’ll make you listen to his band’s CD on the way.

nn

2. Baby boomers will pay extra to see a rock band older than they are. Laugh it up'you’re next, Gen-Xers.

nn

1. Thanks to the Delta Center’s acoustics, you’ll be able to hear the show at least as well as Pete Townsend.
