sorry for the rant, but how can 3 shows, each with a capacity of nearly 10,000 people sell out in a matter of minutes?
both my friend and I were looking for tickets, both were refreshing our screen so we could click into the show as soon as it changed to ON SALE.
after the times to wait increased to 15 minutes then back down, our answers popped up on our screens. she got 2 seats in the last 10 rows. I got nothing.
we were both into the searching for tickets portion within a minute after they went on sale. and all 60 reserved rows were sold out before our ticket request. that baffles me.
sure we could pay ridiculous sums of money and get better seats. as the tickets are already going for between $100 and $1,000 per ticket on e-bay, mostly through ticket resellers. there are also some already for sale on craigslist, but many, many more wanted.
there will still be scalpers standing out on Morrison Road the night of each of these shows selling tickets. but many fans unable to go because the ticket resellers bought up most of the tickets.
there has got to be a better way to buy concert and event tickets than ticketmaster.
