The $300 ticket prices were for the premium seats at the front the other tickets were around $125-$150 up to $300
The show started at 7pm and included Jason James/Landon Lane, Jacob Tolliver, Linda Gail Lewis and Jerry Lee Lewis all at times slots throughout the night.
The night concluded around 5am in the upstairs nightclub for those who wanted to stay and party the night away.
Between $125 up to $300 for 10 hours of entertainment - 4/5 musical acts, a glass of champagne on arrival, Party hats/traditional decorations etc is great value for money.

So let's have a look at the seating chart, the ticket prices and the official running time of the event to answer your claim.

Tickets were priced from $150 to $325 with most of them priced around $300 and only five of the 125 tickets were priced at less than $225, so the impression you are trying to give is misleading and the price range you mention also totally false.

People bought tickets for an event running from 6pm to 3am, not from 7pm to 5am.

No disrespects to Jason James/Landon Lane, Jacob Tolliver and Linda Gail Lewis (they all do a great job), the glass of champagne and the party hats/traditional decorations, but how many people would that draw at prices like the above mentioned? Five? That's probably too high a number already. People went to see Jerry Lee Lewis, end of story.

And that is great value for money? I don't think so and I am probably a lot less harsh than most of the attendees as I am very forgiving to everything that Jerry does and a lot more familiar with his work/history than most of the people attending this event.

But each to their own.

I am sure he did the best he could that night. I don't think he felt that well. Moves very slowly and insecure, much different to when I saw him in Cerritos.

The event was EXTENDED until 5am which is the time the nightclub upstairs closes and FREE admission given to those who held a party ticket.
As for the ticket prices those are the "official listed prices only"

Of course not everyone paid the same price for a ticket. Certain indiduals do not even buy one at all when attending a JLL concert. My point was that most likely several people that paid $300 for a ticket probably felt offended or disappointed and that I personally do not consider that event great value for money.

The multi-angle video is great. I have downloaded it. Some different songs, I love the slower ones. But I also understood he didn't feel very well and he did cancel a show recently. This might explain why he said he'd take a break but didn't actually come back on stage. However if I'd paid $300 plus my air fare and hotel bill to see this show I'd have been disappointed, despite the support acts and the glass of champagne. We paid over £100 to see him at the 100 Club but he did play for about an hour.
Long ago in Ferriday down in Louisiana, They all watched Jerry play and pump that old piana

Thanks for that video link Wolfie.

Initial thoughts? JLL looking very frail but he sound more on pitch than when I saw him in 2015, but he's understandably slowing. Has that drummer played with him before? It's hard to tell listening to a youtube clip, but several times the beat and JLL go out of sync (and not just on that massive clusterfuck at the start of Down The Line). JLL needs a drummer that follows him, not lays down their own relentless rhythm. Even these days.

The video was done good, but the crowd seems VERY relaxed, despite the running people at the front row, which is impolite. No matter what Mr. Doran said - over 200$ and more for 35 Minutes of JLL is far too much.
With a second guitar player or/and a electric piano/organ and several individual soli each song could be easily extented. By the way, it sounded very thin, sometimes (Down the Line).
Jerry was good on voice - even at the slow songs, but it was obviously clear, he was not feeling well. He should have been cancelled that show.
The drummer comes from the wrong side of the music.
He ain't swinging; he doesn't know how to play ballad style; he does everything in a modern rock-style, which is not suitable for 50s rock.
Nevertheless, interesting to hear 39 and holding for a first song, THAT is rare stuff indeed! Does someone know, if he ever did that before? Maybe on his '78 Tour somewhere?

He didn't record/release the song until 1980.
