Adele tickets go on sale today
Posted by: space-time

I never been to a concert like this, and I am not going to pay the scalper prices, as I heard some pre-sale tickets already sell for $700-5000 (as wife read on interwebs). Wife is home this morning and will try to log on at ticketmaster at 10 AM and see if she can get tickets, but I doubt that someone without experience knows what to do to get tickets. I understand these usually sell in first few minutes. Officially the prices are $49 to $149, which is quite reasonable, but $700 to $5000? Hell no way.

Her voice makes me cringe, so I wouldn't even be interested if there were $49.

But good luck to you, I hope you can get in for a reasonable price!

I will never pay one penny above original cost-- scalping is the enemy of live music. Wish I could stamp it out.
As to how to get tickets-- no real "experience" necessary-- just follow the instructions, be aware of limits to avoid any fumbles, and be aware that tickets can pop up a minute or an hour after there appear to be none left for various reasons. A few "dry runs" before the sale time might be good, and also having more than one person gunning for them on different computers. Good luck.

Also maybe good to know-- "choose seats on a map" is usually disabled during large draw on-sales, and some think your chances are better if you select "best available" rather than selecting a specific price level.

My girlfriend saw her on her first tour and was blown away. I think that most tickets are going to vanish and pop up for resale for 10X face value or more.

Good luck with Ticket Bastard; I have rolled the dice many times and I can count on one hand the times I was able to get through when there is tremendous demand.

I would have to think twice at paying $5k to see all four Beatles in concert.

I guess I need to go back to the lab and calibrate the Time Machine!

I just got 2 tickets in Section 3 on the floor, Row C for Atlanta, Saturday night. $150 each is not bad.

I got lucky, I guess. One iPhone got through right away with those. My other iPhone, iPad, and 2 computers are all in limbo or timing out with no availability.

Trust me, you are lucky, as there is FAR more demand than supply. If you are any bit on the fence about going, you can easily quadruple your money (or more) for those seats.

That's just disgusting. It's live music, not the stock market. It's entirely possible to pass extra tickets along for exactly what you paid.

Whether you find it disgusting or not, that is the market. We can be sure that if you were offered a few thousand dollars more than you paid for said tickets, you would sell them at face value. Right.

wife got 4 tickets around $95 each, 2 for us, and 2 for some friends, we haven't decided yet which friends, LOL.

I am curious what she paid with all the ticket bastards fees. Also parking was $30.

I've tried live concerts, different venues, many different genres. I find myself bored (usually) or leaving early with a headache (loud fans, blaring sound systems and/or poor acoustics). Music and I don't click in general so even radio or purchased music is rare for me. I'll pass, though I may sample a few minutes of the NBC special to try and understand the WOW factor.

Try again a few more times today. When Mumford went on sale the last time here it supposedly sold out in 20 minutes, and then I was able to put tix in my cart at lunchtime 2 hours later.

Uhhh.... tickets to a popular show, many of these fans have DEEP pockets, are not the same as some arrogant aßßhole ripping off the sick (and it is a good thing to see that he is getting his comeuppance). It is not a matter of life and death to see a show, unlike with that jackwad. Nice try, billy.

After trying unsuccessfully to get Jerry Seinfeld @ Beacon Theatre tickets on Ticketmaster, I've completely given up and didn't even try. MSG has terrible booming acoutics at concerts. I'll just watch her again on my DVR'd NBC Special whine smiley

It may depend on the concert. I said the same about the United Center until I saw an act that had the expertise to dial the sound in.
