    Default Something I don't understand

    I was checking out prices at stub hub and how can they have tickets posted for shows that haven't even gone on sale yet?

    I'm wondering the same thing. I'm also trying to figure out how not to miss a ticket sale date.
    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddie’s prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.

    Because they are good at issuing rain-checks?

    I know one way this happens is because some people/companies own seats to every event at some venues. I have a hookup at Nassau Coliseum for example.The company my buddy works for has X amount of primo seats for every single event at the arena...So they already know as long as that show goes on, they will have good seats. And if they choose, they can sell 'em.

    So let's say his company has 20 seats at the arena. If they know no one who works there/or clients wants those tix, they call up stubhub or whatever and put them up for sale. They essentially already have those tickets, even though they aren't on sale yet. They literally OWN those seats at the arena.
