WOW! That is awesome! Since I work in finance, I was just curious and just for giggles I extrapolated the $18.00 charge in 1969 to 2009 dollars, using an average year-over-year inflation rate of 4.68 percent (we had some HUGE inflation in the late 70s, if you don't remember ):

2009 estimated price $105.79. Pretty darn good deal to see Santana, Hendrix, the Who, CSN, Sly & the Family Stone, etc. I'm sure the promoters would likely charge around $500/ticket for bands of that caliber today - of which there aren't too many in 2009.

Bloodrock
Alice Cooper
then everything is a blur on years
Black Sabbath
Jethro Tull...Ian was a jester
Rolling Stones
Cheap Trick
Rod Stewart
Charlie Daniels Band
David Alan Coe....getting a little country here
