TicketMaster Problems (MERGED)

Recommended Posts

Why oh why would you guys use Ticketmaster again after the last time they screwed fans! I'm so pissed off and annoyed at the way the presale was handled! I was able to get tickets but way, way out of my price range. I was hoping for GA but they kept pushing the high price tickets on me and I didn't want to end up empty handed. I have been a fan and a fan club member since the 80's and I'm starting to doubt if it's even worth it anymore.

venues dictate use of TM- you want a decent sized venue chances are they are using TM as their ticketing agency.  TM has, essentially, a monopoly on it.

Got a pair of Red Zone for San Jose night 1.  Was debating between that and decent 100 level seats but figured Red Zone floor is worth $50 more than being 20 rows up in lower level.  Will roll the dice on GA for night 2 during the general on sale.

 

So lucky, I tried getting Red Zone and it wouldn't go through on the site.  I got 100 level seats, 20 rows up :/ .

Lorriledger,

 

No, you're not the goddamned world I was referring to.

 

Getting tickets to msg is always horrific because people fly in from all over the world. And not just for U2.

 

I've met a lot of great people and had a lot of great times, but a relatively stress free ticket purchase sure would be appreciated.

 

Plus, if you are temporarily living here, you're exempt because now getting tickets to your local show is your nightmare too.

Looks like you and I will be buying our tickets from a dodgy chap outside the arena.  Good job there's a Bank of America right next to it.  ;)

good question. I would rather help a U2 fan get the ticket they wanted than worry about protocol today.

 

 

 

help me ;)

 

gladly. more details needed.

 

Just kidding.  I've got to wait until tomorrow.

I tried for Chicago but unable to ever get to the purchasing screen. Ended up getting tickets in Toronto which had already been on sale for over an hour, at least I am have them! Woohoo!!

Sorry edy, I've been a member here without a lapse for years and after a morning from hell now have my two gas.

 

The other shows will be dealt with later. Hopefully not thru mr dodgy, but you never know.

 

Good luck tomorrow, all.

No problems getting one for each night in Vancouver - GA on the floor.  Sorry East Coast fans.   I think you guys bore the brunt of the problems.

nice work manxman...I'm stressing over the prospect of going thru this tom for Boston.  Question, did you compleetly back out of TM after the purchase of your first ticket?..I'm fearing the code may not take a second time after reading horror stories on here....the whole thing is hard to fathom without actually being able to go thru the transaction. I'd also like to buy 1 ticket for 2 different nights  thnkx 

 

 

No.  I had the phone app going, but it was being slow.  As soon as I completed the one order, I just started the second.  It was going quicker than the phone order, so I just closed the phone order and continued forward on-line.  Now if I can just get two more tickets on Monday so I'm not there alone!

My mouse was touchy on my first try, misclicked and lost San Jose 1 GA.  The next 2 attempts got me to the final page still with a GA ticket, then instantly reloaded which caused TM to kick me to a page about calling on the phone to order which lost my order.

 

I thought about changing browser settings, erasing cookies, or firing up a different browser.  But, I switched to the app.  1st San Jose GA was a snap at 10:12.  2nd San Jose GA had a 5-minute spin.  As I started to go back to the computer, the spin ended and was a snap at 10:21.

Finally got in for two NY shows.  This was ridiculous.  An hour of pure stress and anger at Ticketbastard.

 

I do not look forward to trying for a few others on December 8th.

Luckily, it only took me 28 minutes, 5 tries, and much frustration to get tickets, but I lost out on the front row seats I had first selected.  It took my friend 2 hours and about 25 tries before she finally got her tickets.  The only tickets we could pull up without waiting many minutes, were Red Zone.  So, we're paying much more than planned, but at least we have tickets for both Boston nights.  After the Vertigo fiasco, tickets for 360 were very easy to get.  Guess I'm glad that these are the only shows that we're going to see as I don't want to go through this again.   What idiot decided to have the presales for all of the shows on the same day + Foo Fighter tickets?
