Does anyone *really* think Warren is overcharging for bringing international artists to Newcastle to play in a tiny venue? I hope not, maybe people just like to grumble, but this story definitely puts it into perspective. Nice one, Lance.

Hoochie also sold out the same day for Gregory Porter.

I don't think Warren is overcharging, given the size of the venue and limitations on numbers. The question remains though - do you want to see Gregory Porter enough to spend £40 on a ticket. It would appear that for 200 people the answer was yes!

The George Benson gig at Ronnie's certainly puts it into context.
