I guess it just reflects demand, but didn't he start out with this band saying he wanted to play smaller shows, and now he's playing the Albert Hall, and charging over £50 a ticket even for the other shows?  Well, there's nothing closer to me than Southampton or London, so I don't have to feel bad about not being able to pay that much anyway.

But I would like to see them...

Last tour they played 3 nights at the Roundhouse which would be about the same size audience as a night at the Royal Albert Hall. This tour is more provincial than previous ones so I guess saving their energy from London will help elsewhere.

As for costs, I've just paid the same for a ticket to Bath Forum as I paid for one of those Roundhouse gigs. So if they're a bit expensive at least they're consistent.

I suspect they will be playing festivals next summer.

I've been looking at Sheffield too and you've got the cheapest tickets, more expensive seats range from £49.55 to £55.15.
