I tried to get tickets to see Cream on their reunion at the Royal Albert Hall in 2006, I think it was, unfortunately I missed the day they went on sale and tried the day after. All tickets were sold out and the face value was £125, I think, which for a band like Cream I thought was ok, I looked on e-bay, remember this was the day after they were sold, and they ranged from about £350 - £780! I am a big Cream fan and even if I had bought a ticket at £125 and was offered £780 for it I wouldn't have sold it, seeing the gig would have been far more valuable to me as a proper fan. Everything today is about making money and many people do anything to rip others off to make money, it is a fact for example, that farmers grow food primarily to make money not feed people and that just about sums up where we are at!
I didn't get to see Cream in the end but I'm going to see Jack Bruce at The Stables in Milton Keynes on Sunday, next best thing!
