Yep, true. Did Staples in LA a few years back in GA. Started queuing at 9.30am, in the first 30 people and we were right on rail. Tried in the general onsale today for LA, and couldn't get a RZ, so glad I got my presale GA's! I did Auckland red zone both nights in Auck last time they were here, and must say it was nice to have drinks and toilets close by! Oh well! mod edit - number numbers or emails please use PM only and say hi while in the queue!

Without going into too much detail HIGHLY recommend NOT TO buy aftermarket Red Zone tickets EVER based on fan experiences witnessed personally during the first 5 shows of this tour. These were from "legit" aftermarket vendors.

Uh oh...can you give a little more detail? Were people with aftermarket RZ tickets not allowed in? IF so was this because 1. sellers did not show up to meet buyers and thus sellers could not get buyers in and buyers were stranded 2. sellers did show up to meet buyers, but venue for some reason did not let buyers in even if seller showed up with their credit card? 3. Some other reason?

I'm bummed because I have tickets that I got during presale but would like to get RZ instead. The concept of me having to meet buyers of my original tickets, in order to get THEM in; then go to RZ to meet sellers of my RZ ticket, in order to get me in; sounds impossible.

The only place I'd ever buy an aftermarket ticket is StubHub which is a TM company.  At least you have financial protection for the transaction. Since its a TM company there would be pretty good assurance the seller is legit and there is really a ticket available.(though you're still out travel expenses).  Most of the ticket sites claim guarantees but they all seem a bit janky to me. I know it sucks having to give TM more money but, I'm not risking my hard earned $ for pricy tickets.

People do need to know, as with all large business ventures like concerts, there are all kinds of marketing deals struck with all the various associated businesses.  So for example, TM contracts with the venue, part of that contract will be they get 100 tickets to do what every they want.  They might just resell them, they might give them away, or agree to provide them to a scalper for a % of their profits.  Then there is the food and beverage company, the sanitation, the security, the venue naming sponsor, etc etc.  The are all kinds of ticket access deals struck as part of the service contracts.  This is where a lot of early tickets are coming from and they are hard tickets, not CC entry or print at home.

Stubhub has no affiliation with TicketMaster whatsoever.  Stubhub is owned by Ebay.  TicketMaster owns the secondary exchange TicketsNow.

And LiveNation owns TicketMaster. Monopolistic bastards.

It seems the only way to buy/sell RZ would be to meet the buyer(s) at the RZ tent just outside the stadium and the seller (the one who presents ID) would also get wristband put on at the same time.  The arrangement of buying/selling would obviously work well if you met the people beforehand or they were friends.  I suppose CraigsList could play into this arrangement but sounds like it could be a bit risky for seller and/or buyer

I have to agree to be very wary when buying the RZ tickets from a third party.   Last night when I checked in to the Red zone tent (you don't pick them up at Will Call booth), they check your name, check your ID, and then put the RZ band on your wrist.  Then escorted to the RZ entrance.   It's not a cc swipe like GA.
