“Ouch!” seems to be general reaction to the ticket price for Ry Cooder and Nick Lowe’s three-night stand in Dublin’s Olympia next June.

Promoters Rag Lane have set prices for the show at €96.25, €116.25 and a fairly eye-watering €131.25 for the premium seats.

Those ticket prices were last seen when Tom Waits was in town. Crazy Ol’ Tom charged €116.25 and €131.25 for his show in a tent in Dublin’s Phoenix Park last summer.

It will be interesting to see in these recessionary times if demand for Cooder and Lowe (with Flaco Jimenez and Joachim Cooder) will be high enough to justify those steep prices when tickets go on sale today.

Here’s Cooder supplying the theme tune for Paris Texas:
