Breaking! Spokane Lands Elton John

"Word has finally arrived: Elton John will play the Spokane Arena on April 8, along with his band, in a show called “Greatest Hits Live.” Tickets go on sale Feb. 12, 10 a.m. through TicketsWest outlets (800-325-SEAT, www.ticketswest.com). Prices are $27, $77 and $137. Elton John has appeared in the region three times: the Spokane Arena in 1999, Pullman (two shows) in 2008 and Yakima last April. When he played Pullman, the show created at ticket frenzy at TicketsWest. The system crashed briefly a couple of times, but it didn't prevent all 10,000 seats at Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum from being snapped up within two hours. Another performance was subsequently added/Spotlight.

Question: Would you pay $137 for a good seat at an Elton John concert?
