Question: Among the many examples of inflation is the price of a ticket to a rock concert. Today a front-row seat at a combined KISS and Rush rock concert might run you $50, $75, even $100. Meanwhile, in April 1975, when those two then hugely popular rock bands appeared in a rare dual show at Illinois State University's Horton Field House, how much did the tickets cost?
Answer: On April 12, 1975, a front-row seat for a KISS/Rush show at ISU was $5 a ticket. It was only $2.50 to be farther back. A Pepsi was an extra 25 cents, of course.
