Def Leppard, Styx, and Tesla are coming to the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater in suburban Chicago over Labor Day weekend.

Thanks to age (and lack of fitness), I cannot do lawn seats. Never liked them anyway (Boston at Alpine Valley in 1987 was a mud-fest). So if I am going to see a concert, I am getting the good seats. That means either getting them from someone for free (unlikely), or shelling out a ton of cash.

The show I mentioned earlier would be an event where I might have shelled out a ton of cash 20 years ago. Today...well, lets just say I would see the show if I "obtained" tickets from someone or somewhere.

Just for fun, I researched how much it would cost to see this show. I can get a couple of front row seats at $545 each. Or, there are a couple of 2nd row tickets available (center section) for $894 each.

Ouch.

I guess I'm not seeing Def Leppard this year...but you could, if you wanted to! KICK-FM is giving you a chance to win a $1,000 Ticketmaster Gift Card.
