It's impressive what folks pay -- or what some other folks think they can get --
for concert tickets. Before you drop coin for the $1,750 Radiohead show in February, there's another bargain awaiting on Craigslist for Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne date next week at American Airlines Arena in Miami.
Update: Here's our review of Jay-Z & Kanye's performance at BankAtlantic Center.
For a mere $750 a head, and the "head" part might be important, a chauffeur will "drive you & your guest IN YOUR CAR to and from the concert." This is a chance to "arrive in style," and "get home safe," and definitely not end up decapitated at the bottom of Biscayne Bay.
If the idea of letting a stranger set up a transaction that involves
handing the keys to your Camry over to another stranger for six hours
while you and your boo enjoy "Otis" and "Niggas in Paris" sounds
completely normal, this is your lucky day!
Even if there's no foul play on the agenda, this still seems like an exorbitant rate to pay when you'd likely be able to take a cab for less than $100 round trip from most locations in the greater Miami area. And with plenty of other Craigslist offers up for grabs that feature seats between $125 to $200, this is just asking to get fleeced.

14, at BankAtlantic Center, 1 Panther Pkwy., Sunrise; 954-835-7825; bankatlanticcenter.com. Tickets cost $59.50 to $250 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.
