    Default Phoenix 6/16 show tix dropped way down in price? Lower deck 5th row for a song!

    Hey all,

    I have been patiently searching ticket ba$tard for tickets to the 6/16 show in Phoenix. All I ever found were upper deck nosebleed seats that were over $110 or so, well they had some cheaper but were pretty bad... Lower deck were $165 each or something ridiculous. It was gonna be near $500 for my wife, son and I.... I was bracing for the worst and being in nosebleed for over $300..... So I search this morning and found section 106 row 5 for $88 each........ Whats this about? I pulled the trigged immediately. 3 tickets in row 5 sec 106 were $268.25 out the door, to me is a fair price. Then just for fun I searched again for just 1 ticket. Hey, never know maybe there is a straggling first few rows or something... Anyway, the best available for 1 ticket was section 104 row 27, 2 small sections over from where i was for $160, near double....... Is this bizarre or what? Anywho, I feel like this was a great win for us.. Also, just a note, the upper deck seats are now $30... Really strange stuff... Think sales were that off? Not sure what to make of it.

    I think it just depends on the venue, how things are selling, row, section, etc. I sat in the lower level in Washington DC right next to Wolfgang's side of the stage, for $75/seat - bought directly from Livenation. Granted, I was probably 10 rows up, but still, not a bad price at all.

    And that is the shit that I don't quite know how it works, because those seats were sold out for the DC show supposedly during the pre-sale, as I was on trying to get seats.

    I got great seats, but would have loved to get better ones.

    My ticket this year was in the almost exact spot as I sat last time in 07...and this year the ticket cost $76.,and last tour was $171..so who knows what the bell they do to decide what sections cost what.
    I know one thing for sure is that they definetly made price changes beetween the date they first went on sale and the week before the shoe.
    I'm glad but confused as well.

    Just confirmed this. They have section 9 Row 6 seats 1&2 right now for $88 each. Don't get it. Makes no sense. But if ya know someone that doesn't have tix you should call them asap about this since it's like half price.
    I'm already in. Me & my crew are 101 Row 3 Ed's Side right F-ing there ~!
    Gonna rock that shit all night.
    Heading to the Hard Rock across the street early before the show to Pre-flight and kick it for a bit.
    Stoked for this show in a BIG Way~!

    Yes, the reason they were 'sold out' was because they were seats that Live Nation had on hold for in-house use. I was able to buy them thru my friend who works for Live Nation.

    "Sold out" last minute releases are one thing...
    Why release decent seats 2 weeks before at half price???
    Makes zero sense to me. These seats would have sold for full value if just left up for original price.
    But half price for an above average seat on the isle? WTF? why? The entire upper deck is sold out,
    Zero tix available.
    Ticketbastard....I don't get it.

    I know right?? Seems like they were having ticket sales issues and I don't really get that. I was going to pay $500 for my(3) seats and just randomly checked and got them(3) out the door for 264!!!! I felt like I had won something. Not to mention they are 5th row, lower deck, next section over were still $500, I don't get it. Pure stroke of luck??? Looking forward to seeing Van Halen in Phoenix. Saw them in 04 with Sammy, must have been one of their better ones because I didn't think was all that bad....

    I'm going to the Phoenix show, just waiting for the wife to wake up today to see if she wants to go before I start shopping for tix. I might be solo, so anyone who has a spare ticket, please keep me in mind. I'm shooting for best avail.

    Ok, I've been doing the Ticketsheister search since yesterday morning. Seems lower levels like 101, 102, 114 and 115 are readiily avail. for face value and usually the first three rows of those. Still, I'm going to hold out for sections A,B or C. For Rush last year I landed 12th row, section A on Ticketbastard a few hrs. before the show. Took me about 11 tries, but it was worth it. Otherwise, I may try my luck on the street in front of the venue while Kool & the Gang are playing.

    I "might" have an extra ticket. Ed's side, floor, 11th row. You still looking for one? Thanks,

    I'm getting a good feeling about tix for this show. eBay and CL are full of tix for twice what's available on Ticketbastard. I mean, I hope VH are doing well on this tour, but I'm not gonna feel bad when I score great seats for face value or below. I'll be shopping hard on Ticketbastard all day Fri. and Sat. until the right ones come along. I know it will work out. It always does.
