What’s up with Ticketmaster?!?

Written By: Gary on June 18, 2005 4 Comments

So at 9:59 am this morning I’m at the Ticketmaster web site for Tori Amos tickets, they go on-sale at 10. Refresh (not yet). Refresh (not yet). Refresh (not yet). Click to buy (yes!). I’m in row P? TicketmasterWhat’s up with that? Release try again, Row R? Try again, row P, same spot! So I try single seats, doubles, everything is that far back (I see that same spot on row P a half dozen times). It’s ten hours later, I can still get as close as row U. If it took this long to sell a few rows, where the heck did the first 15 rows go (plus the 4 in the pit) is the first few seconds. I mean I love Tori and all, but where did all those seats go in the first few seconds?!?

    Ticket scalpers have it down to a science. Several rows aren’t even available for sale to the general public, but are instead given to radio stations, promoters, and the like.

    Maybe not all available seats are buyable online? They might be selling better seats over the phone, or to people who stand in line…

    That is outrageous….

    Well… I wouldn’t say we have it down to a science, but we do have a bit of a lead on the average ticket buyer…

    Tori was a tough pull everywhere – I even did well with shows in places like Omaha!
