kicked off a 20-date UK tour at Bristol Colston Hall. The band's first gigs since the death of singer Bon Scott.

2005, A survey concluded that the average person spent around 21,000 ($42,000) on music during their lives, the figure included the amount spent on Hi-Fi equipment, concerts and CDs. Music enthusiasts were likely to spend more than double that, parting with just over 44,000 ($89,000), in a lifetime, according to the survey conducted by UK company Prudential.

I wonder if that survey included travel and drugs for concerts?

$42K seems way too high. That would be 420 concerts at $100 each. The average person hasn't even come close to seeing that many shows.

I expect I have spent around $5k, including record and CD sales, equipment, and the shows I have seen.

Maybe if you count my mortgage payments for the month each time I bought a CD or saw a show, that would get me over $42k.

But you're more frugal than average. It's easy to spend a fortune on Stereo equipment, sound upgrades in subsequent vehicles, concert dating, and if you buy instruments it can go through the roof.
