Paradise at a price

I can’t say I disagree. Prices are even high when seeing Brazilian singers. Once, when I was living in Natal, Roberta Sá came to sing (her hometown) and the prices were ridiculously high (I actually think they were around R$300, too). Changing to Recife singers, I’m not sure how much a Lenine show is there but I saw him live, in a very small venue, in California and paid just US$20 (edit: I found a tweet from 2012 saying a Lenine show in Brazil is just north of R$200).

And a bonus tweet…

“Where do these people go the rest of the year in Recife? They must go see cover bands in hip bars. You think they wear black shirts the whole year?”
