Genesis craziness

Nick, Tim and Chris are planning to recapture their youth by spending £100 on tickets to see Genesis in concert.

Am I the only one who thinks this is ludicrous amount of cash to spend on tickets to see a previously split-up band of old blokes singing second rate pop songs? Surely the concert has no hope whatsoever of breaking even on the Entertainment/Economy scale?

I am pandering to Nick at this point, but only because I know how much I spent in Coast last weekend.

Actually, Tim is far more sensible than either of us and baulked at paying £100. This reminds me actually, I need to actually buy the tickets, as they've just gone on sale.

you crazy crazy man. And you're the one who was going on about Phil Collins being a kiddy fiddler

Hold on a minute, so you think if you said "no" I wouldn't go?

Regardless, I have to admit I am querying the sanity of this spend. Phil Collins' fiddler tendancies are only alleged, but the fact he is a humourless knob-head who hasn't been part of anything good musically since 1991 (fading lights) is not opinion, it's true.

I think that if he wants to spend the money - then he should. You should spend £100 on whatever frivolity that you want also (like Coast - or - Monsoon...yeah!) You should always have a bit of mad money that you can do whatever you heart's desire. (I would buy tickets to go and see Tom Jones, or Neil Diamond, or a horse show - so I can't really comment!!!!)...Also £100 is only as much as you would spend on a good meal out at a nice restaurant - if you have wine and a comfy cab ride home!!

Whether or not Phil Collins messes with the kids (I've never met him so I don't know either way) doesn't alter the fact that he is a rather good drummer. Good enough to spend £100 watching a testicle play drums with the guy from Mike and the Mechanics and a keyboard player that looks as comfortable on stage as Anne Frank did on the streets of Nazi Amsterdam, remains to be seen. But you know what? It's only money! Screw it!

I feel a bit funny thinking about watching a testicle playing the drums.

Anyway Nick, at no point did I say you couldn't go - I was merely questioning the bizarre way you choose to spend your hard earned cash. Far be it from me to be an arbitor of taste when it comes to musical matters - I spent last Friday dancing round the living room to the pointer sisters

And I though £55 for Bruce Springsteen was a lot!!

I'm pleased you are both going to see Genesis as you are making me look really cool.
