$38,000 a Ticket to see Foo Fighters?
And YOU thought Lollapalooza ticket prices were high…
Imagine paying $38,000 to see the Foo Fighters. Who is spending 38 LARGE on a ticket for anything???? That’s a car, or even a house in some places!
The President of the United States of America throws THE sickest parties though, yo. You gotta pay $38,000 for your red cup, but the entertainment isn’t some dude’s ipod “on shuffle“, it’s the FOO FIGHTERS and the keg isn’t filled with Natural Light.
Will Ferrell was there. Jack Black was there….although Jack might have been on the payroll as a performer. We’re not sure. We are sure this was a swanky fundraiser for the Party Planner in Chief’s re-election bid.
I bet there was no mud pit though…
Can you really have fun when the door is $38,000? Aren’t your expectations WAY high?
Is there booze? Are there cool street performers? If you had $38,000 (in hand) what would YOU do with it? Would you buy a “three amigos” style outfit like this one Jack Black is wearing?
People like to dream about winning the mega millions or some nonsense…but it doesn’t take millions to change lives to make moves. What would you do with $38,000? Leave your plans for 38 grand in the comments below and one lucky dreamer will win a Free Q101 T-Shirt!
The coolest thing about this whole shindig might be that it was at someone’s house. Check out that map.
Where does the bouncy house go? Pretzels and hotdogs? We hope those are Kobe Beef hot dogs at least!
Another cool side note, the entertainment is listed as Obama, Rashid Jones, Jack Black and the Foo Fighters. How bad ass are the Foo Fighters? The POTUS is THEIR opening act!
Well, know this…the crew here at Q101 HQ is taking notes on these and other events. We will rip off all the cool things we can and implement them into Jamboree 2012, sans the $38,000 ticket price.
No word on whether President Obama can join us yet, but you better believe Rahm Emanual the President are getting invitations.
Think they allowed smoking at the fundraiser? Turns out the truth may be it was $250 to see The Foo Fighters, but $35,000 for dinner. Something there doesn’t seem right? Just ask John Stewart!
