¿Cuánto cuesta la entrada a Las Ventas?
Las entradas para la plaza de Madrid abarcan cualquier posibilidad económica. Desde 2,20 euros se puede asistir a una novillada con picadores.

Interesting idea !!!!!!! This is from Las Ventas official web site !

You´re right Joe . I misunderstood the word "asistir" which whilst it does mean "assist with" or "help" .. also means "to be present at " . I thought maybe they were offering the chance to help with the bullfight .
I tried to get tickets for the Cayetano fight on June 2nd .. so far they tell me there´s no chance .. So now I´m looking to buy tickets for June 5th . They´re not on sale yet .

They should be on sale Steve , I went on line and they had them for sale.
If you want to buy from a tout for the 2nd, the best guy to see has his own table in Vina P's , he is a big guy in a suit , his table is up the back of the resturant , just ask any of the waiters . He will charge 2-3 times face value ( cheap buy tout standards) if its rained off he will give you your money back .
Another option is to head up to the bullring and wait till after the clarins for the start of the corrida , then the touts will start getting nervous about not getting any money , then you can start haggling with them .

Yup. I saw it too. Really horrific stuff. That's one dangerous event. No denying it. I'd be surprised, however, that the "muy grave" claim is accurate. At worst he'll lose several teeth and will need reconstructive surgery on his tongue. Seemed to totally miss his jugular vein. I'll bet he won't be back in the ring anytime soon - probably never. Dare I post this nasty photo?
