I hope to take my girls to this, but right now, or anytime in the future I am not sure we can afford it.
Tickets can sell for as cheap as 30 in some places, but when you add travel, lodging, food, and tix for all of us, it turns into an event. Plus the meet & greet tickets are around 80-100 I think.
Anyway I'll let you know if I go, my kids love Fresh Beat band!
