Can we throw the words 'genuine fan' and 'real fan' in the bin? That's been thrown around a ridiculous amount since these shows were announced and besides being an up-yours to the fans who did get tickets, it's collective foot-stomping expecting Dave in particular to do something that the band and management have tried to tackle in several ways. They even did a Ban the Bots ticketing system on the last tour. They are not and cannot be personally responsible for the behaviour of resellers, even with their best resources. It's also important to bear in mind that large venues will almost certainly have exclusivity deals with ticketing agencies.

I just feel like so much of this frustration is being misdirected and everyone has an idea of a Magic Dave who can manipulate every facet of the system so every last person's particular needs are met.

probably the most spot on response to this whole thing.

It’s all kicking off on Twitter already for the Metallica gig at the O2 tonight...

Same terms as Foo Fighters at the O2, photo ID but , also payment card required to be shown to gain entry....

If all bands did this the online touts would have to rethink!

In different states we now have "lawful reselling" laws

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usa...tory/99272124/

It's a short article if you're interested.
In my mind, what they are saying is that the ticket is my property and I can sell it just like anything else that is my property.


Sorry to muddy the waters.
I also do not blame Dave or the band for any of this. Every venue, state and country is different. The management is trying different things to see what works better.

Think I will be ok as I always have my drivers license on me. Will have to double check which card I booked that on as one of my credit cards expired and was cancelled by the bank without replacement.

I think you should be ok with the old card as it isn't going to be used for any payment.

It might not say it on the ticket, it was well advertised on the sale announcement and probably before the purchase was confirmed.

I still don't understand why official ticket outlets such as TicketMater, TicketFly cannot have a ticket return function. Surely it's not hard to issue named tickets but if the ticket holder cannot subsequently make the show they can return the ticket to the original sales outlet for refund minus a fee, and the venue can just put the returned ticket up for sale again at the original face value. If it's a sold out show there could be a waiting list for returned tickets so it instantly allocates tickets to the next in line.

I could do this with a phone and a notebook ffs.

I think the issue is that these companies make more creaming off the profits from the extortionate prices on GetMeIn etc to want to take a drop in returns from a face value resale scheme.

There were no issues that I could see for Metallica last night, then again could have been a few people who got caught out by it.

Ticketmaster own GetMeIn, Seetickets own StubHub.

That, in short, is why ticket agencies just don’t care & all the epetitions & tweets won’t change anything soon.

Yeah, Seetickets seem to be taking after Twickets, they don't actually run a tout site but launched a fan to fan resale type thing.

Quite good actually.

Whereas Ticketmaster have two: getmein and seatwave
