I'd hold out for the limo. Preferably a white one.

Well, this is the first time I don't have GA. Pretty frustrated that I got right in on my phone and then it repeatedly told me there were no seats. Wasn't until 10:10 that I got in on my iPad and got reserved seats. I'll be selling two for Denver if anyone is interested. If I end up with GA on the 5th I'll be selling 4 reserved at face.....

I got in right at 10 AM and no GA tickets were available, not complaining, that's the nature of the online ticket selling beast I guess. I'm just happy I got tickets, and will be able to surprise my girlfriend later with them. Is it safe to assume that there won't be any GA tickets for sale on the 5th? If there's a possibility, I might have to take Friday off and endure the stress of queues at home and not at my office desk.

There will be plenty of GA available, you just will have to have nimble fingers!

I got 2 seats at The Forum and threw them back. No luck on GA so far.

Default Pre Sales Are Often Frustrating

I was able to get tickets to two of the four shows that I was hoping for but GA for none. I am going to Kansas City and Wichita for sure. Still hoping there will be more GA tickets releases for OKC and St. Paul on 12/5. I am willing to drive up to 10 hours to see Foo Fighters live. I will be at these shows even if I have over pay on Stub Hub!

Not everyone is going to get what they hoped for. It's frustrating sure but not everyone gets what they want. Just the way of life.

Keep on rocking.

None is a gross exaggeration. Plenty of fans got tickets, you were just not one of the lucky ones.

After trying very hard via the livenation app and the ticketmaster website...about an hour later I was able to get 4 tickets via the ticketmaster app. Perhaps they were slowly spreading them out?

That is great news. I'll keep at it. Frustrating, obviously, but to be expected when the band is this big.

I pulled a couple of lousy seats at the Forum and one ok seat at the Honda and pitched them back (I'm determined for GA at the Honda and I don't want to pay top price for a crap seat at the Forum because finances). Had to give up because my break's over and I need to run some reports (so can't watch the screen if something comes up). Not worried yet--there's still the regular sale on Friday! Congrats to all who scored!

Don't engage. Let them complain.

Just say there is a general sale on 12/5 and good luck then. It's not going to help.

Kind of frustrated about Denver, though I did end up getting seats.
I was online plenty early. I noticed that around 9:30 or so, the waiting room opened up (on axs.com), so I entered. Everything kept refreshing and I was finally able to search for tickets at about 10:02am. Kind of frustrating to have to wait 2min to start searching when I was on the site so early ready to go.

Immediately, I was having no luck, every section was showing as unavailable. Granted, I was looking for 4 seats together. GA Pit sold out quickly, as expected, but the reserved sections showed tickets available for 20-30mins+, but every time I searched (even for 1 ticket), I'd get a message that none were available.

Finally, out of frustration, I decided to try to search with my phone and lo and behold, every search came up with options (mostly Lawn GA), but at least way better than what I was getting through my computer.

In the end, I was able to get my hands on 4 seats together in the upper GA section. Just wish I'd have tried my phone earlier, I might have been able to get the lower GA or even Pit tickets. Not sure what's up with AXS's system when using a computer, but it seems to be on a totally different page compared to the mobile version.

I'm trying again on Friday and if I can upgrade, I'll be selling these reserved seats.

Glad I'll be there, but certainly frustrated with the process (AXS).

That happened to me with Spandau (smaller band but also smaller venue--Wiltern). I just kept trying and then BAM. Two GA appeared.

KEEP TRYING. All week and again on the 5th.
