If anybody is still looking for tickets...

I just shelled out for TM Platinum seats so now have an extra pair for the Detroit show.  Sec. C, row 6, toward the outside aisle.  I'll sell them for more than face but less than VIP or Platinum.  PM to discuss the details.

Rock on!

MOD EDIT:  You can try to sell your tickets here, but you CAN NOT sell them for more than face value.  We do not allow that on TRF.

Row 3, sect B, $350... one available.  I'll be in the other seat of this pair on Ged's aisle just 3 rows from the stage.  Come rock with me, won't you?

Face value, printed on the ticket from Ticketmaster, is $350.   So, should I consider your willingness to buy at face value an offer to buy this one? 1022.gif  trink39.gif

Ticketmaster "Official Platinum" seats.  Take a look at the current offerings to get an idea of the going rate for decent floor seats from TM.  Basically, TM is scalping tickets in the primary market instead of allowing scalpers to buy at face and sell them at inflated prices in the secondary market.  I'm OK with that as long as the band gets their cut of the increased ticket sales, which I'm pretty sure is how it goes.  

Here is how TM explains it:
_______________________________________
Official Platinum Seats
What are Official Platinum Seats?
Official Platinum Seats are premium tickets to concerts and other events made available by artists and event providers through Ticketmaster. They give fans fair and safe access to some of the best seats in the house.

Are Official Platinum Seats resale tickets?
No. Official Platinum Seats were not purchased initially and then posted for resale; they are being sold for the first time through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster's Official Platinum Seats program enables market-based pricing (adjusting prices according to supply and demand) for live event tickets, similar to how airline tickets and hotel rooms are sold. The goal is to give the most passionate fans fair and safe access to the best tickets, while enabling artists and other people involved in staging live events to price tickets closer to their true value.

Why can't I buy Official Platinum Seats for certain events?
Currently, Official Platinum Seats are not available for all events. Be sure to check back often as new events are continually being added.

How are my tickets delivered?
Depending on the event, Ticketmaster offers TicketFast® or standard UPS ticket delivery options. In some cases, will call may be offered or required. Learn more about TicketFast®.

What is the Current Price per ticket?
The price you pay is the original price of the ticket. Official Platinum Seats were not purchased initially and then posted for resale; they are being sold for the first time through Ticketmaster on behalf of the artist or event provider.

Other amounts or fees may also be included in the Current Price, or may be added on top of the Current Price. If additional amounts are added on top of the Current Price, they will be displayed on the website before you complete your purchase.
_________________________________

That's why so expensive.  I'm only trying to recover what I paid for the ticket.   1022.gif  2.gif

Fair enough. A little too expensive for me though. I'm only 20 rows back for less than half that price  wink.gif

But... if you're really desperate to sell it and it's a few hours or so before the show, I can certainly make you an offer.

The parking lot, an hour or two before the show tongue.gif

Really I don't know, somebody mentioned a Steak N Shake earlier, but I want something alcoholic before the show to save on beer prices at the venue trink38.gif I'm not terribly familiar with Auburn Hills, and no way in hell are we meeting up somewhere in Detroit

Ok....there's a POSSIBILITY that we'll be able to come down to the show; we're waiting for confirmation.  Those coming from out of town, where are you staying?  Would love to see my old (and meet some new) Rush friends!  Where's the meetup??

Keeping my fingers crossed and lighting candles for this to happen...

O'Malley's Tavern - Auburn Hills

Looks like a fine place to start the evening.  I'll be there...   trink38.gif  1022.gif  2.gif

Turns out that O'Malley's does not offer shuttle service but Hoops does.  Hoops shuttle is $5 for the round-trip and they do stop at local hotels... O'Malley's is connected to a hotel and the Hoops shuttle makes a stop there.

Any thought from locals about meeting at Hoops instead of O'Malley's?  Or plan on meeting at O'Malley's and scheduling the shuttle service offered by Hoops.  No big whoop to me either way...  If our group grows to larger than 10 bodies, Hoops just wants to hear from us so they have the correct vehicle to get everybody where they need to be.
