MARISA IS THE MOST AMAZING WOMAN EVER.
SERIOUSLY.


I've never seen Coldplay up close so she gave the section A row 20 to me.:'(
I'm so happy.

I WISH TICKETMASTER WASN'T SO SHIT SO WE COULD SIT TOGETHER.

It has to be a conspiracy. I dont know how 300+ seats sell out before 10:01 am. I kept getting shitty seats too.

Oh right.... the conspiracy is that stupid Auction that is now part of the ticket sales. Premium seat auction. Absolute horse shit.

Its very annoying that some of the people who are huge fans have to get together a lot of people and then overpay for the tickets. I feel kinda taken advantage of as a fan.

I think Live Nation is the problem. They're money hungry bastards. The same thing happened with Madonna's Boston and Chicago shows that went on sale this morning. It seems like only back sections went on sale to the general public...whereas all the front sections will be auctioned off.

Well, it's called an oligopoly, unless I am mistaken as far as the dynamics are concerned of TM and its competitors. Very few ticket outlets. The other feature is that TM has many exclusive contracts with the major venues throughout the U.S. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ticketmaster You have to love Pearl Jam. They at least practice what they sing about. However, I've never been a real big fan of their music overall, although I do like some of their songs. I may have to give them a try.

Also, I paid $110 per ticket through the TM auction they had for the Palace show in '06, like the one now and they were pretty solid seats, Section A, Row 10, Seats 1 and 2 (here's a short video http://youtube.com/watch?v=3ULmFbbWioY )

I don't have a job right now so I think I may have to count myself out unless I find one fairly soon. This is just a bit too much money to be borrowing from a parent or someone else and the tickets are rather expensive, regardless, so I won't be upset if I don't see them. Maybe it will send a message if they make less money this time around on this tour. Even the seats in level 200 are expensive at $77.

Also, ticket venues hold onto seats. Keep trying, even up to a week and the day of the show. It's most likely not a conspiracy

Crappy seats in Detroit still on ticketmaster. :cry: I couldn't believe the selection! And, I tried to do the auction thing but it won't let me choose my country (Canada). Give me a break! I live right across the border!

Looking for 2 good tickets if anyone can help! PM me if you have anything you're willing to part with. Last time I sat way in the back and I don't want to do that again!

Thanks,

I agree..

How do those people that auction the tickets get them early? I almost did a "buy it now" auction on ebay for a code, but this was Fri and I was worried I wouldn't get the code in time and it would be a wasted $40. I've been to alot of concerts but never really cared about being close until this one. Most of the ones I've been to were small venues, gen admission or lawn, and that's where the fun is!! I was waiting at 10am, but with my slow internet I missed out on some good seats)none in the front three sections. My seats F row 12. Just for the heck of I kept checking for seats and ~ 11 am all the floor seats were sold out.
Has anyone been to the palace? I saw Paul McCartney from the nosebleed section. Worth every penny because it was a dream come true, but very crowded in those damn seats!
Hoping I'm sitting by some wild fans, cause I'm taking my husband who isn't too hip on going.

Hey Dana!

Definitely keep checking Ticketmaster everyday, especially as the date of the concert nears. They will release more seats....and some of the best ones at that. I've seen it happen time and time again. In fact, that's what my best friend and I will be waiting for...as we didn't bother to buy the garbage that was offered this morning lol:lol:

They're for sure holding back sections....the only blocks of tickets that kept coming up were in 115, 114, 126, 115, and floor sections D, E, and F. That's messed up.

Good luck!

Thanks UWO...I'll definitely keep checking. It's so weird though, all the other concerts I've been to (and it's been many) hasn't done it this way. Hopefully I'll find something!!

I wouldnt count on it a lot of the best tickets are either on the ticketmaster auction, i also saw some on stubhub and ebay so I wouldnt take the chance that the best tickets are still being sold by ticketmaster it looks like they've already been sold.

Trust me....I've been to over 100 concerts....they ALWAYS hold back tickets. It's just a matter of checking Ticketmaster persistantly, because they randomly release these seats...sometimes weeks or days before the show, or even on the day of.

Yes, Ticketmaster is auctioning off tickets....but not entire sections.

There's still hope =)

I just went with basic balcony seats. I'm still new to concerts and can't be bothered with much else, I'm just there to watch the band. Insanely pumped though, finally getting to see them! I think it'll be a great show, and I hope all of you get your tickets you desire. :D The Palace isn't a bad place all around, I saw Paul McCartney there around three years ago and I enjoyed it. I'm sure these guys will blow my mind. I'm expecting tears down my face from it. :laugh3:
