My opinion of the Sharon is it's overpriced. I was going to see Kansas in February and the decent seats are $125, that's $250 for two people and the lead singer Steve Walsh retired four years ago. I saw Kansas in 1995 with the original lead singer so that will be my memory.

The last two shows I went were in May at Savannah Center. I saw Starship featuring Mickey Thomas and I was on the website at 10am when tickets went on sale and I got two seats front row center, couldn't of been better. The following week I saw the Village People with the original singer and I was about ten minutes late on the computer and I got third row on the aisle. Both shows tickets were $35 a seat. The same night as The Village People was Eddie Money at the Sharon and his tickets were $104, there is no way I'm paying $208 to see Eddie Money, even though he had four hits. Check out all the acts on youtube before going, Eddie Money has seen better days.

The Sharon is overpriced. It’s too small a venue for The Villages IMHO which makes its pricy.

Saw Fator twice in Vegas....expensive and hard to get when we were there but worth every penny. Friends were there last year and said the same thing so I guess he is still packing them in.

Amazon Prime Video has a 95 minute Terry Fator "Live in Concert" video for rent for $3.99. No scalping.

Youtube.com, it's website of billions of videos that are free. Terry Gans and Terry Fator have hundreds, maybe thousands of videos at your disposal. I have over 9,000 live videos collected myself into 42 music files on their website and I watch on my 75" TV with ultimate surround sound, best concert anywhere, and like I said, the videos are there for free!! All you have to do is search and to save, make an account and then pair with your TV and your off, or watch on your computer.

Here's a sample

well that would apply to almost everything.....the difference is that there is an audience for live entertainment.....different vibe and emotional connection then watching on a screen. It works for you, fortunately for the entertainers, it doesn't work for everyone.

Huge difference seeing a live show.

Why is it "too small for The Villages?" It seats 1000 which 2-3 times larger than many Broadway or other local venues up north not in NYC theaters that charge 2-3x as much. They should be bigger too but it won't make seats cheaper, it will just make more money for the show and create more scalpers. Have seen a couple shows at the Walt Disney Theater in Orlando and that seats 2800. They have many of the same acts as here (plus more of course) and try getting DECENT seats for that for a major act. Even ones they have here too.

We first saw Terry Fator in Vegas about 2010 and thought he was hilarious. I was skeptical (not a fan of ventriloquism), but he gave a funny and "clean" show (no vulgarity) and was quite good. Truly, one of the best Vegas shows we've seen. We purchased tickets through The Sharon website and paid a rather large "service" fee, but felt it was worth it for the great Center Orchestra seats we purchased. Don't worry...you won't find these tickets on a secondary market! We're using them!

I've been to over 200 concerts in my life, the first was Vanilla Fudge in 1968. I wasn't implying watch a video instead of a live show if possible. I was posting in to reference retiredguy's post about a single concert video on Amazon Prime, like it was some monumental find. When there are thousands of videos at your disposal for free without paying, joining or doing anything on youtube. I mentioned in my earlier post about going to two concerts this year in May. I didn't think anyone would think I was posting that a video was better than a live show.
