Bauhaus on tour

Here’s a blast from the past — the eighties goth band Bauhaus are touring again, for the first time in decades (probably).

I used to love this band when I was a teenage goth living in Sheffield, but never got to see them live, so I’ve bought tickets to one of the New York shows in November. The tickets were $40 each, which doesn’t seem too bad, but I’m completely disgusted with Ticketmaster’s gouging — they charged me $8.90 per ticket as a “convenience charge,” and then an additional $4.25 “order processing charge” — a total gouge of $22.05 (27.5%!) on $80 of tickets, just for taking my credit card payment and mailing me tickets.
