Re: "Beat the Bots" is a waste - don't bother
I hope they continue to "Beat the Bots" for every show / tour. THANK YOU FOO FIGHTERS (and team,) it was much less stressful than Ticketmaster and it was nice to have to only pay the face value of the ticket for once.
We went to Honda Center (Anaheim) about 8:30am and it was very well organized. Looked like chaos, but they handled it very well. Due to the lottery, our wristbands put us about 600 back in line - the seat selection wasn't so hot by our turn, but we'll try again at presale and onsale and opted for GA today.
Even those in the "late line" were able to get tickets, especially GA. Seemed as though everyone was interested in purchasing seats mostly.
And yes, even if you arrived by 9:30, they were firm and stopped handing out the wristbands so they could start the sale.
It took us about 3 hours (I think???) from line up to grabbing tickets. Tai and Gab arrived after me and were lucky enough to be one of the first 50 - 100 to get tickets, so it was completely random.
