1990s show, Picket Fences. Often meant to be super quirky surreal small town drama typically surrounding police and legal cases, but turns into actual legal, social and political issues to ponder.
One of David E. Kelley's creations. And I think he had a lot of good ones.

I've never heard of an entertainer doing this but it's pretty cool -

“About 25 years ago, I got tired of looking down [at the crowd],” Joel explained during a 2017 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “The first-row tickets are always scalper tickets — always somebody who paid way too much money to be a big shot, sit in the front row.”

So Joel decided, “Screw this. The real fans are in the back.” Since then, he has sent crew members to the seats in the back to find enthusiastic ticketholders. The crew upgrades them to free front-row tickets, and Joel enjoys seeing genuine fans’ reactions while he performs.

According to a TikTok video, this practice loses Joel $20,000 to $50,000 per show. For comparison, Paul McCartney charged $3,000 for front-row tickets at a 2019 show, KWQC reports. But having real, passionate fans in the front rows is priceless to Joel.



Regardless of that, I'd rather pay to see Billy any day of the week over Paul.
