I paid $250 for going 79 in a 50 mph zone when I first got my (old and used, but still...) Mercedes. I was kind of lucky actually, because I had been going 85 just a few moments earlier. If you get clocked going 30 mph over the speed limit in Cayman, you lose your liscence for 6 months. No exceptions. There is basically only one road, and they like to keep it safe. That was a lot of money, but still, it was worth it.
Ya, Ok, I'll play. I paid a lot to see Springsteen once, but can no longer remember how much. It was just a lot more than I thought it should be, probably $80 or $90 back in the early 80's.
I personally managed to sneak into The Who (with warm up band The Clash) at Shea Stadium. I was actually caught twice by New York's finest, but I was so desperate to get in (drove all the way from Pennslyvannia, even though it was sold out) I made my plea and they both let me go. Talk about an act of God...
£120 for third row seats to see Pink Floyd at Earls court in 1994, well worth it! The following night it was 20 or so rows back and those tickets were only £30 and the show was even better being further from the stage
I didn't pay for them but I had box seats to a Kings (hockey) playoff game (game 6 vs. the Avalanche) at Staples Center... Open bar, open buffet, open dessert cart with chocolate shot glasses and your choice of baileys, kalua or grand monier... It was VERY cool...
