    Default 10am TICKET SCAM

    I got right on at 10am, asked for two tickets, very quick, not tickets available!!! But they did offer me Platinum tickets!

    This is a total scam, I think they are trying to get people to panic and buy the platinum tickets because they think show is sold out!!

    This is complete fucking bullshit!

    I agree. I could not get any more than 1 single ticket. no pairs, groups of tix available at any price level at all.

    What gives??? THis could not have sold out in seconds. No fucking way!!!

    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    Default Dallas concert

    I'm betting the same thing will happen in the Central time zone this morning. Neither the VH nor VIP Nation sites have posted anything about tickets going on sale today or Monday. I'm only going by the post on VH's Facebook page about local markets going on sale today. How the heck are we supposed to know when to purchase tix online?

    I just called Ticketmaster. Got an automated messge stating there are no adjoining seats left for MSG, only scattered singles.

    This is complete bullshit. Ticket brokers must have snatched up 10,000 or so tix. So fucking mad right now. All I wanted were shitty seats with my friends. I didn't think that would be an issue...

    How is this fucking possible?? Seats were sold out 20 seconds after the sale started!! They are manipulating the whole market. I wasnt expecting front row, but didnt even get a shot at shitty seats.

    These scalpers and TM can go rot in hell.

    Ticketmaster pulled this shit with Springsteen where tickets were "sold out", then redirected them to "partner" sites where they were being scalped.

    I had no problem here in Indy at all! Got right in at 10am...found tix at several different price levels...needed 5...kept going back and forth looking at the seats, changing tic prices...got them in a great sec close to the stage! Was very smooth! Sorry you guys are having troubles!

    I saw that too. me and my buddy got tickets yesterday with the facebook presale thing. In the middle of getting them, they changed the time of the sale. Thankfully we already had them. Looks like the only one switched to noon sale was this show.

    Hopefully they add a third show for you guys. That sucks.

    I see they've updated the vh site to say that some other dates are "coming soon" in April.


    Looks like the same problem in Boston, nothing showing.

    There is no way in hell 18,000 VH fans scooped up two shows worth of tickets in 30 seconds! TM institutionalized scalping and all other scalpers from here to Timbuktu have scooped up most of these tickets.

    After all the great stuff going on around here lately and the good vibes from the band, this is really killing all of that for me now.

    I think before people go fucking crazy screaming about ticketmaster "scamming" people you have to understand how far back in line you are. Any arena that has seat licenses (and that's most of them that have nba or nhl teams nowadays) gives the people who "own" those seats first right to tickets to the show, they often also get dibs on extra tickets if they want them as well. THEN the Amex people gobble up a bunch of seats, THEN there's often other presales (Facebook, etc), PLUS most of the good floors are gobbled up by VIP Nation, and radio stations, the promotor, etc, etc, etc.

    There aren't that many tickets left for public sale so yeah it's possible the few that are left get sold in seconds.

    this is pissing me off to no freakin end. Been sitting here trying to get tickets for my son and I and nothing available for Mohegan sun.

    you know what.... freak them and their stupid ass scam business. I will wait it out and get some tickets online somewhere else for my boy and I to go to Mohegan sun. I WILL NOT let them rape me for the VIP garbage (no soundcheck or meet and greet) so if worse comes to worse.... I will get some crap nose bleed seats down the road.

    What a load of crap..... shoulda known,

    Let's see if the economy can support scalper prices. I predict tickets will come available after panic buying is done - think they had $2000 front row center tix on 'platinum' when I first looked which are now gone.

    Possibly, but it seemed like the amex and facebook MSG sales were very tight also.

    well,

    going out to shovel snow right now. I will check back with TM later on and at this point I could care less if I even go or not. Amazing how the hard core fans get it rammed up their chutes trying to get tickets to see their favorite band. Whoever or whatevers fault it is..... I dont care. It just sucks and there is no need for it.

    my rant is done and I will check back later......

    Rob
