I'm sorry - did a bunch of my self-entitled high school seniors just take over this forum? I mean, I understand the frustration, but we're adults here. This is a capitalist, supply/demand system. Yes - there are slimy scalpers with professionally-written bot algorithms who scoop up all the good seats and then make obscene profits on them. This has been going on for how long now? Why is this news?
I agree - its a deplorable, albeit legal practice that somewhat deadens the whole experience. And yes, sometimes I too would like to be able to stand in line at the local venue or TM outlet overnight and proffer up $30 for a 2nd row seat. I'd also like to open up a brand new "Missile Command" cartridge while listening to the Police's new album, Synchronicity, but that's not going to happen again, either.
You want tickets to a major draw, arena rock band? Then this is part of the game. You want good seats consistently? Start seeing smaller acts in smaller venues. Try general admission shows. Try the symphony or a good jazz club. But please stop whining about your frustration at being outwitted in the ticket game.
Its not about whining,
More about frustration.
It sure comes across pretty whiny. If, as adults, we can't just be patient and out-wait the system, then we should be charged an exorbitant price. A demand for immediate gratification.has always been expensive.
I could care less what the tickets cost. I can deal with that. I just want to know all of the details and where I am sitting.
Going with the nose bleeds at this point $78.00 bucks,
Maybe some thing better as time goes on.
