    Default Ticketmaster and all brokers can blow me

    If this needs to be moved, no problem.
    It took me 1/2 to get so-so seats for the Boston show...tried to buy 2 together and kept getting bounced to nothing available. Finally ended up with a pair...might try and upgrade later, but I'm pissed. I was on at 9:55 and kept hitting refresh and was typing in my info at 10 exactly. Almost tossed my iPad across the room...
    I ended up buying the vinyl as well...what the hell is 55 more bucks after getting raped by ticketmasters fees?

    It has turned into the biggest bunch of bullshit.

    Over the top pricing, over the top charges, they always stick my ass back in the southwest corner of the arena even if I'm the first one on ticketmaster. no matter what.

    my big arena concerting is just about older. I'll go see bands at the theaters from now on. Hell, I can go see Jane's Addiction at The Palace in Louisville for about $50 and be right there in the middle of all of it

    There are tons of good seats still for the Pittsburgh show. Obviously not as many folks wanting to spend a ton for tickets in Pittsburgh (Compared to Boston, New York, etc)

    I wouldn't be surprised if (For the Pittsburgh show) they offer buy one get one free at some point.

    I know it is frustrating. With that said, since I'm saving a lot of money because the Steelers don't have any home playoff games, it makes me feel better about spending a ton on VH.

    I'm just going to buy from a scalper a few days before the show.
    Right here I say....

    I was on at 10am exactly for MSG shows, 30 seconds later there were no tickets available! But TM directed me to the platinum seats which were available at 2x to 10x face value. What a scam!!

    There is no way VH has the fan base to sell out two MSG shows in 30 seconds. TM is manipulating the market. Also, the scalpers probably have all these seats.

    All the good will of the last 2 weeks or so going right down the drain for me.

    I just made a half-hearted attempt to get tix for the Boston show - no decent seats for reasonable prices - so I gave up.

    I saw the last tour with Dave. It was good, but the magic was missing, something was 'off'. It was the absence of Michael Anthony and the inclusion of Wolfie. I have total respect for Wolf - clearly an amazing bass player. But I'm in no rush to see the band perform again. I saw them 4 times with Sammy, once with Gary, and then Dave.

    If someone gives me tickets, or I get a sweet deal, great. Otherwise, I will rebel against Ticketmaster, and on some immature level, I will rebel against VH for their years worth of silent treatment and booting Mike. I'll enjoy the new album and that's that.

    Well I THINK I upgraded my tickets this morning to the Pittsburgh show. I had section 112 Row A. This morning I got section 122 Row N. 122 is beside the stage on Eddie's side. If you look closely, there is a special seating chart for Van Halen in the drop down menu. There is a walkway that extends into Floor sections 1 and 2. This makes 122 a pretty good section.

    Has anyone ever sat in section 122 at Consol for a show? Is there any obstructed view by stage rigging, lights, PA's, etc? I don't want to sell the wrong tickets! LOL

    I just looked at the mSG shows out of curiosity. No tix available to either show? Van Halen sold out two garden shows in an hour? Seriously?
    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.

    There were no tickets available at 10 except the odd single. There are 800+ listings on ebay/stubhub etc

    If you guys are willing to wait it out, I bet ticket prices will drop in the few days before the show as scalpers become desperate to dump their unsold tickets. Personally, I've never tried to wait it out that long, but I'm going to this year.
    Van Halen will rock your face off!

    Well, considering two of those guys are dead, and we have no fucking idea what happened to the guy in front, I would think that Sil and Paulie Walnuts are in hiding somewhere in Florida. And God forbid AJ is running the Family.

    Had the same problem initially. How do you know that you're first? There were probably thousands doing the same thing as you.

    Where are you sitting? I'm second row balcony section 301. Not bad. Can't afford anything better. Maybe I should have driven to the Garden last night and camped. Prolly too old fer dat! LOL. Anyway, I'm happpy with my seats.

    Yeah, I've got about the fastest fiberoptic connection you can get. I was on at exactly 10:00am, and Ticketmaster was showing that there were no options for two tickets together in any price range at the United Center. I finally had to get a pair in the back corner of the Allstate Arena Lower bowl.

    The only thing I can figure is that there were not a specific number of tickets that the LiveNation app was limited to for the app presale, and they all got bought up.

    What a bunch of bullshit.

    I long for the good old days, when the best seats were reserved for the people who were willing to wait in line, camping out for tickets overnight at the venue, or the ticketmaster outlet. I think that was better for the bands too. Back then, if you were willing to wait in line for tickets, you were a real fan, which put the people most excited to see the band right up front giving them a better response. Nowadays, the best seats are reserved for Amex customers and scalpers. Yeah, I know it's all legal, but they're still fucking scalpers. At least scalpers in my day had to work for the tickets, and wait in line to be the first to buy the good seats. Now, it's just a form of legal organized crime.

    The most frustrating thing is the way the system works to buy the tickets. There should be a graphic display of the remaining seats in the venue. Whatever order you get on, you should have the choice of which seats you want that are remaining. Give the customer 10 seconds to click a choice, or lose their spot in line behind the next person.
