    Default EVERYTHING having to do with TICKET sales. Ticket Master, ticket brokers etc etc.

    Does anyone know for sure if they will be taking any type of Citibank cards, or if it has to be the Citibank/AAdvantage card exclusively. I have an email in to Ticketmaster - hoping to get a response today. Any info would be greatly appreciated - hope to see some of you at the Palace of Auburn Hills!

    Got an email from Ticketmaster stating: "The order page specifies that a CitiBank card is needed for the presale. It does not require any specific type of Citi card."

    As a matter of fact they DO. A woman in my office with two different types of Citibank cards called for me and they wouldn't give her ANY information. They told her point blank you had to have a Citibank/AAdvantage card specifically.

    I also had 2 other friends WITH Citibank/AAdvantage cards call for me and they told me the same thing. However, not only do you have to have the AAdvantage card to get the password, but you also have to use the card to make the purchase. So, even if you had the password, you couldn't buy the tickets with any other card.

    Finally, this is the WORST set up I've ever seen. Tickets for the Michigan show go for $59.95, $79.95 & $149.95. But I got an email yesterday from The Palace of Auburn Hills (where they're playing) as was told that only tickets in the $59.95 & $79.95 range will go on sale to the general public. The tickets in the highest price range (obviously the best seats) are reserved for the Citibank/AAdvantage members. Looks like I'm getting nose-bleed seats.

    Yup.

    I even applied for a Citibank/AAdvantage card online. But after submitting my application, the final screen said it takes a few days to process the application and that they would MAIL you their results (not email). So, by the time they finish processing my application and then mailing my results, I won't hear anything for at least a week. So, even if I got approved, it would be too late for me to participate in the "Premium Seating" ticket sale.

    Even if I do get accepted (which I should), I will be canceling the card instantly.

    This whole process is such bullshit. What a shitty thing to do to your fans.



    From Van Halen: "Hey, thanks for being our fans everyone. However, most of you will never get a shot at decent seats to our show because you either A) can't afford the high ticket costs, or B) don't have the one specific type of credit card that gives you access to the best seats.

    Sorry we sold you guys out like that. We knew all the seats would sell out regardless. So why not make some extra money in the process by allowing one credit card company to pay us millions for the rights to the best seats? I mean, we get extra money and they makes millions off the interest generated by their cardholders. It's a win-win for everybody involved.....except you poor schmuck. Have fun, and don't forget to buy a $50 T-Shirt at the concert!"

    Heh, some people are getting an eye-opening education on how not only the shady concert and ticket sales industry works but the credit card industry as well. Wait 'til people start complaining about the beer prices and we enlighten them about the concessions industry!

    I don't think Live Nation itself is running that kind of promotion, but I'm too lazy to check for sure.

    These kind of limited or "first pick" deals through specific credit cards and other advertisers such as even Best Buy (for The Police tour) is fairly common with Ticketmaster these days. American Express seems to be one of the biggest tie-ins with these sort of things as far as I can see.

    Remember, when the regular ticket onsale time and date arrives via TM, you can use any credit card to buy tickets. It's just that you won't get the best seats.

    And people wonder how it's possible for a arena or even stadium sized concert to sell out in 5 minutes.

    There doesn't actually appear to be any "presale" going on for the Auburn Hills show. To me, it looks like if you have a Citibank card, you have access to purchase from a block of premium seats, but the seats go on sale tomorrow at 10:00 like all of the rest. Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but that's the way it looks to me.

    I don't think you read the responses in this thread, and I don't think you're reading the policy for the Auburn Hills show fully.

    No one in this thread has mentioned "presale". Everyone knows it's only for "Premium Seating."

    With that said, here is the email I got directly from the Palace.

    http://www.palacenet.com/email/epl_071022.html

    As you know (and has been mentioned in this thread), tickets range in price from $59.50, $79.50 & $149.50. You can verify those prices at ticketmaster. And as email link I posted above clearly states, only tickets that go on sale to the general public this Saturday are the ones in the $59.50 and $79.50 ranges. At the end of the 2nd paragraph, the last sentence says, "Special Superfan seating is also available."

    Well, it doesn't take a genius to realize the "Special Superfan seating" are the $149.50 seats. And since they specifically fail to mention that price range as being available on Saturday, it's clearly not available to the general public. Furthermore, it's equally clear that the "Special Superfan" tickets are the Citibank/AAdvantage tickets.

    Presale was mentioned in the response I got from Ticketmaster - see the second post in the thread.
