Got lucky for the most part and was able get in and out of Honda in under 2 hours, I think. Made my way to Old Navy for the 50% off store sale.... I guarantee that I stood longer in line at Old Navy to check out than many had to stand in line for Foo tix.
Oxnard, 104 miles away! I passed on the Forum show, (I don't like Mondays ). Though, I may still buy tix for the Forum on the 1st. I'll drive the 2+ hours to see the Foos at the Honda Center. It's worth it to me.

Which meant that there were at least 800+ people ahead of me.

However, when I made it up to the box office window, I asked for GA floor and was rewarded with them. I spent four hours of my time and scored exactly what I wanted and left the venue at 12:30pm very content.

Additionally, I checked my GA tix numbers. They are #117 & 118. Which meant, only 116 GA floor tickets were purchased before me. Which makes it understandable that the majority of tix bought before I got to the box office were for reserved seating.

Looking forward to next September! I am thankful and most grateful for this Beat the Bots presale! Went much more smoothly than I anticipated!
My friends who got there at 1 also scored GA. Nothing but good things to say about the presale.

Took me a freaking hour to get there from LA thanks to the damn construction on the 5.

It looks like the results are in... 'The Beats The Bots Beat the Bots' should be the headline. There are way more reports from gruntled customers than disgruntled customers.
Anaheim had all of the makings of a third degree clusterf*ck, but it ended up being a Foo Lovefest. There were clearly more fans than sketchy scalper types. Even people in the 'Missed Out On The Wristband' line scored General Admission tickets. Pretty much, anyone who ventured out of their home to the parking lot of the Ducks went away with tickets in hand.
Will there be tickets on StubHub... YES. But, there will be a lot of Foo Fans who will take their tickets they got Saturday morning to the show and have a great time.
...
Thanx Foos and Foo Management for looking out for us.

Exactly! I walked up at 1:30 in Atlanta, talked to a few nice people while I bought GA tickets with no surcharge. Since it's an all GA show, my tickets aren't any better than what I could get on TM on general sale but BtB saved me money and aggravation. And I appreciate that they took the time and effort to try to give us a break. It was a nice thing to do.
