Garth Brooks – A Case of Supply and Demand

I write about the consumer speaking with their dollars if they have a problem with the way they’re being treated.  I’ve walked out of enough businesses to show that I practice what I preach.

Last week Wynn announced that they’re raising, wildly popular, Garth Brooks concert tickets $100 each.

Wynn is jacking up the Garth Brooks tickets by $110 to $253, including taxes and pencil-sharpening fees and whatever else.

These illicited an outpouring of complaints in the blogosphere and twitterspere.  Why wouldn’t Wynn raise ticket prices to the always sold out show?  It’s a simple case of supply and demand.

Sure a $100 raise in price is shocking, but until shows go with empty seats there’s no reason for Wynn to stop increasing prices on the Garth Brooks concert.

If you don’t like the price increase don’t go.  The best way for any business to hear you is for your money not to continue flowing their way.  If you’re very upset, stay away from the Wynn and Encore hotel, casino, restaurants and bars and spread the word to your friends.

For full disclosure I don’t care for Garth Brooks, so this won’t effect any plans I have in the future.

Garth Brooks Signs Big Deal At Wynn

The big casino news this week was that Garth Brooks signed a 5 year deal to perform at Wynn Las Vegas.  It will cost $125 to see a man, his hat and his guitar.

This has been rumored for a couple of months.  I don’t like country music so I won’t be going to see this show, but I think that my parents would like to see Garth Brooks and when they make it out to Las Vegas for the first time I will hook them up with tickets.
