    Default 3 Important Tour/Ticket Questions (PLEASE HELP)!!

    I plan on going to Cleveland and East Rutherford so far, and three more for the second leg. I can only afford to spend $100 or more per ticket on one show (preferably here in Pittsburgh) and the rest I'll get shitty seats so I can go to five. But I don't understand some of this. Aside from the 4-Star/5-Star stuff (which I can only pray VH is still touring in five years when I'm further along in my career making signicant more money so I can get some of those packages THEN), and just talking about regular tickets, my questions are:

    1) What are the minimum prices for these shows? I know they'll vary, but ballpark? I mean the shitty seats. On VHND's link to TicketsNow, the prices are a minimum of $100-ish, usually like $130-$140. On Ticketmaster, they're like $50-$60 minimum?

    2) Why are Cleveland's tickets on sale on TicketsNow...even though they're not on fucking sale yet?

    3) Why is the Official Site showing most of the shows "sold out," but they're not listed as "sold out" on Ticketmaster?

    ...and to top it off my wife just got her dream job which she starts next week, so it's going to be hard for her to request off this year, just to make things more complicated! JI-YAH! I'll make it happen somehow, just need some help right now please. Thanks in advance.

    I think the answer to your question may be....

    What is the difference between an official outlet, and a ticket re-seller ?

    To kinda answer one of my questions (I think), I went to Ticketmaster to pretend to buy 2 tix from the second Toronto show, and even though the option is there on the main page, when you get further along in the transaction it says there are no tickets available. Or is that because it's too late in the day and Ticketmasteronline isn't open? I guess it's always been that way with the main page and you don't find out those seats are gone until you get to the next page now that I think about it.

    Planning shows to this tour is going to be harder than planning a murder. The psychopaths out there have it much easier. I guess I should drink some beers tonight, pace back and forth and do some brainstorming and plan out how I'm going to do this. Would help if I knew when the shows I want to go to are going to be on sale. They'll probably go on sale on a day I work. Fuck it--I'll quit!

    That generally means the show is sold out. Ticketmasters webpage is a 24/7 deal, so it's never not open.
