Ummm, no thanks, we'll see them on t.v

I heard a commercial on the radio at work announcing "Doodlebops LIVE! Get your tickets today!" so I called my sister, becasue she's always saying how she would loooove to take Little man to one of their shows since he likes them so much. She told me to find out how much the tickets were, and to call her back.

$80.

EIGHTY DOLLARS PER PERSON to see these annoying ass human/puppets LIVE!
and that's only the price for tickets in the third balcony section (AKA almost nosebleed seats), not even the floor section which is where all the action is, where the kids have room to jump and dance along. They didn't have prices listed for the floor section, which I guess is better off because the $80 was enough to send me straight to the little red X in the corner...
I called my sister and told her to forget about it, I wasn't going to let her pay that much to take him to a freakin' show...we'll keep them on t.v thanks.

You have got to be shittin me! $80.00!

Do you know how much wine I could buy with that (6-12 bottles depending on my needs, thank you).

dd- I shit you not. I'm now afraid to see how much the tickets for Sesame Street Live will be, and my son looooves them more than anything.

Those doodlebops are just plain scary. Liv was a bit too old to go for them (she was a Barney, Teletubbie maniac) and I have always appreciated that.

For 80 bucks, you get a good back massage or some zero balancing....

I have trouble dealing with them on the small screen I couldn't imagine seeing them live and in living color not to mention pay hard earned money to do it.

You are so right...we'll continue watching them on tv thanks....

tix are actually fairly affordable if you take into account the price for every show children and adult...

We were going to take the kid to see them when they were here a few weeks ago and the tickets were around $25.

WOW we went to the Doodleboops and the tickets were not near that much. They must have really raised the prices. 80.00 is just crazy.
