Why punk scene is so expensive?

Why punk scene is so expensive?

Athens, Greece

The biggest problem here in Greece is that we don’t have the opportunity to see live concerts of UK or US bands. Only a few bands have played here over the last 20 years (Ramones, Bad Religion, Madball, Agnostic Front, Sick of it All etc.) and to tell you the truth is not easy for a lot of people to buy a ticket because it is too expensive for the Greek standards (prices are between 30 (40 US) and 60 euros (80 US)). I understand that it is not easy for a band to come here with all the equipment needed just for about 1500 tickets but I believe that the bands are asking too much money for just one show.
I’m pissed off because I will probably never get the chance to see my two favorite bands (Rancid and Social Distortion).

Stay punk.

P.S.: sorry about my English
