Default Ticket disappointment

i've never been so disappointed! I went on Ticketmaster to get tickets for the surprise concert in New Orleans this Friday, November 21. I waited for 30 minutes for it to open, and scored my two tickets. When asking for payment, my credit card was expired and I had to update it. When I went to go do that Ticketmaster would not let me update my country name. As I sat there in a panic,my time expired and I was no longer able to get tickets. I am beyond devastated that I'm not able to go to this once-in-a-lifetime show. Please help!

So you didn't make sure your details were correct? Tickets will be rarer than hens teeth.Look out for local comps or turn up on the night and hope for the best.

Same thing happened to me today on a pre sale "technical issues" apparently.But before I go buying tix, I make sure I remember the right passwords, payment details are correct, etc. You having to update payment while the tix were in your cart are what lost you the tix.

A whole lot of us have been there before.

There were quite a few people who thought they for tickets for The Holy Shits gigs only to find the tickets gone once they went to pay.

Unfortunately with small gigs it's always going to happen

Sorry you missed out

I always update my ticketmaster account the day before to make sure everything is good to go.

I'm sorry that happened. We've all been down that road.

Default Ticket Thugs

I love that you Fighters of Foo, the greatest rock band in all the land, are beating the Bots. But why is it that I can find these assholes or resellers or scalpers whatever the fuck you want to call them already selling tickets when the box office pre-sale is Saturday? Guess we'll get in line Saturday morning in the cold and wait to get shitty seats.

How about this idea? Live PAY PER VIEW shows so I can invite my friends over to watch on my HDTV and listen on my kick ass sound system. We can drink and smoke, not wait to go to the clean bathroom and be home right after the show and not worry about a DUI!

Do it and I will pay!!!

Fuck the ticket douche bags!

That's like when you're on line at the coffee shop and the card you swipe is expired. You ask the barista/cashier if I can swipe another card. They say yes, and then while you're looking for the new card in your overstuffed purse, they kick you out of line, kick you out the door and lock up for the day.

We hate Ticket "Master"

They have done a free per view...a few times.

Any tickets for sale for the show Friday in NOLA are going to be cancelled if they are on ebay or other ticketing sites.

I update ahead of time and have multiple cards out, just in case. I have a friend who lost tickets to Nashville because of putting a card number in wrong.

Question What?! Have the ticketbots won again?!

I went to the Verizon Amphitheater website in Missouri today and so far 2 bands booked, one band is Foo Fighters. If you click on ticket info, different seats, quantities, prices, appear, ready for purchase. How on earth is this possible, if you have to be present on Saturday to buy tickets at the box office?! Is this a hoax, or is 'there all ready a deal in place' with the "ticketbots?"
I was going to drive 3 hours and wait in line for who knows how long on Saturday, but it sounds like "the same ole song and dance," no pun intended.
Anybody have any explanations?

It is just showing when all the presales start. It clearly says right on the page that tickets go on sale in 11 days, hence the ticker counting down 11 days 15 hours and 24 minutes lol.

No tickets have been sold for these shows yet. If you're referring to stubhub those are prospective tickets from touts, they are tickets they expect to get, before they have them. They put them up the second the shows are announced in the hope people will buy them even before they do. When they do go on sale they get the tickets, if they get those they advertised they sell them, if they don't they cancel them on Stubhub.

Yep this is what I always do too. Not saying I don't feel bad for the original poster though, because I too learned the hard way.

Pretty sure that this page here is what he or she was referring to. It clearly is just an information page though. They aren't selling yet.

I don't know how you're getting through to that page but again, they do NOT have those tickets. They are prospective listings.
