I think much of the frustration from fans is how the ticketing process has been for this tour. I have always known tickets were not a guarantee as part of the fan club nor was it the reason I first joined in 1992. However I do feel that a "long term subscriber" is just that, someone who has been a subscriber for a long time, not someone who signed up before December 24, 2016. In the past there were always three pre-sale groups for fan club members, this time it's down to two. If they offer the perk again for the next tour, which I suspect they will, they should make it four groups for fan club members. Those who have been members for 20+ years are in group A, 10-19 years are group B, 5-9 years are group C and 0-4 are in group D. You basically go up the ladder the longer you are in, that basically was what it was for previous tours in some small way, not exact what I outlined naturally. But the other issues and complaints are more related to Ticketmaster themselves and how their site can't seem to work properly, this is all Ticketmaster does is sell tickets, and yet they can't seem to get things to run smoothly. If I ran my business that way I would be out of business. I like many others am not a fan of the ticketless/CC required/you must attend way of going about it. If something comes up and I can't go, I should be able to do with my tickets as I see fit, be it sell them to someone or give them away, etc. I of course don't make any plans for the same day the band is playing in my area but if something comes up Id like to think someone else can enjoy my seats at the same time if i can't.
