Idol Tour 2011 Online [rip off] Store now open for business!

You've seen them on the stage, now own a piece of the American Idols LIVE! 2011 Tour with the official online store. From t-shirts and hoodies to posters and bracelets, we've got it all right here at your fingertips--literally! Plus, you don't have to wait in a long line to make a purchase.
says the ad for it...

Translation: We're not satisfied with just raking in thousands of $ from concert goers, we want $$ from people who can't go too, so we're making it easy by opening an online store! Marketing strategy at its finest...

Souvenir Program: $25.00 duh?!
T-Shirts: $35.00 are you kidding me?!
Pullover Hoodie: $70.00 wtf?!
Cadet cap: $35.00 ??

The cheapest item in the store are the individual photos of the contestants for $5.00 each. All right, sounds fair so we "tried" checking out as though we were buying! Wow, the shipping costs more than the photo and they added tax to it! They want $11.95 for ONE PHOTO. What a rip-off!! See for yourselves... :)

Head to the online store to see more of the ridiculously priced merchandise here!! 

We're watching the show in Providence, RI on the 27th and the tickets itself are not cheap ($150.00 for two!!). Traveling about 2 hours for it, add gas cost. Soda at the venue will cost about $6 (vending machine, a buck! No you can't bring in food/drinks at the venue!) There's no excuse for the exuberant amount on the merchandise considering the effort and amount every concert goer has to go through just to watch the show!!!
