BetteBack October 23, 1993: Why Does Bette Midler Charge So Much For Tickets?

Clearfield Progress
October 23, 1993

Bette Midler was to finish her tour this weekend at Radio City Music Hall, where the top ticket price was $100. Even in smaller cities than New York, seats were $50 and $75. Her fans aren’t rich. Why does Midler charge so much? Keith Hainlin, Cincinnati

Because she can.

Midler belongs to that “rare breed of artist who can command that type of price,” says Jane Cohen, editor of Performance. And Midler’s show — packed with 2′ 1/2 hours of elaborate choreography and costumes — is more Broadway production than typical concert.

Factors playing into the price: payroll, theater size, labor, demand, security costs — and, of course, how much the star wants to make. Her publicist wouldn’t discuss that.

Bette Midler On Looking For Inspiration:

Bette Midler On Looking For Inspiration: “You’re always looking for inspiration when your interests flag and you think maybe it’s me. If you take it a step at a time — a lot of it has to do with depression and despair. Where you think your party is. Where you think your country is. Where you think your world is.” (The Free Lance-Star – Nov 8, 2004)

BetteBack October 11, 1993: Who first made it to the airwaves with the song “Delta Dawn?”

Q. We have a question. Who first made it to the airwaves with the song “Delta Dawn” — Helen Reddy or Tanya Tucker? — L.C. and A.S., Idaho Falls. Idaho

A. ‘Delta Dawn” has a wild historv. It was first recorded by one of its co-writers, Alex Harvev. Then Tracy Nelson and her group Mother Earth, performed it and Bette Midler heard it, liked’ it, began singing it in her act and it was on her first album. Tanya Tucker, who was only 13 at the time, recorded it for MCA, but it never got higher on the charts than 12. It was Helen Reddy’s version that became the big hit.

BetteBack October 9, 1993: Bette Midler Surprised At How Restrained Her Audience Has Become

Indiana Gazette
October 9, 1993

Bette Midler is not Just making box-office history at Badio City Music Hall, where she Is wowing ’em until Oct. 23. She’s also making scalper history. Choice – even semi-choice – Midler seats are going for as high as $600 each!!

Bette is very, very pleased with the success of “Experience the Divine,” but insiders say she’s a bit surprised at how restrained many of her Manhattan audiences have been. Bette is used to total hysteria from beginning to end.

In New York, sometimes, the audience doesn’t “let go” until the midway point.

Oh, come on, New York! Get off your hands and on your feet. You’ll probably never experience the Divine, to this extent, again!
