Vancouver presale - Should've lowered my expectations

Recommended Posts

 

Sorry, there was an error with search.

Try again later.

 

 

...Such are the words I keep seeing in my attempts to purchase just 2 tickets for my wife and I to the May 12th opening show in my hometown.

 

Looks like only access to the ridiculously-priced packages were unlocked by my fan club code (I just needed regular seats, in the $70 to $100 each range).

 

Thanks for nothing, boys...

 

This is turning into a fiasco similar to the I + e Tour Fan Club presale. When we got to our seats we were shocked to discover we were behind the stage, despite the seating map indicating differently when I bought them with my code.

 

Maybe I'm a little jaded in my 43rd year, but I should have expected less than a smooth presale. I should have just saved my $50 USD fan club fee ($66 CAD after exchange) for the imminent DVD / Bluray release.

 

I guess I'll just keep on clicking away.

Are you in the Red Hill pre-sale Group? I'm in the Wires group for tomorrow and that's the message I get if I try to get regular tickets today ahead of time. I can also get the packages today.

Just realized I'm in the Wires group so hopefully I'll be getting my tickets tomorrow.

 

I let my membership lapse for 2 months before renewing so I was unknowingly a n00b again.

 

 I guess I get to lower my expectations before attempting to buy tickets online, after all...

 

Starting to think all this trouble isn't worth seeing them live anymore. Watching the I + e Tour DVD at home, sipping on some bourbon and noshing on chicken wings was much more enjoyable than the nosebleeds I got for the first night, and the "fan club" seats behind the stage on the second night of the Vancouver opening dates. 

 

Like bob Marley once said, "...time will tell"

?

 

I got the RZ tickets I wanted on my ipone app right away but, even 10 minutes later, could still find plenty of GA and lower bowl tickets on the website.

 

even right now (10:36 PST or 96 minutes after it started) I can find a whoooole bunch all over the stadium....

 

(I just tried and got 2 seats in Section 206 for $100 each)

 

????

 

keep trying man....

 

edit: just saw you are in wires.

 

well, as I said, if there are still so many left after 90 minutes of the Red Hill group there will certainly be some for wires tomorrow.

 

My advice is: use the iphone app.  connects more smoothly.  good luck.

After solving the stupid TM locked out issue, I found plenty of choices so persevere when your turn comes tomorrow.

 

Yes, the I+E DVD is pretty cool but nothing beats the emotion of being there and this time we will (may?) hear JT in full. I've never travelled to see the band before but I'm coming all the way from Sydney just to see this, my 10th show. After the number of music icons we lost in 2016, you never know if this could be their last tour or (being a similar age to the guys) my last chance to see them.

The advantage you get by not buying right away is that now the Buy on Map feature is enabled.

 

No way I would have bought the tickets presented to me had I know what was available.

 

MODS - pls consider providing that feedback.
