Default Re: New US Tour Dates For 2018!!!!

This is the worst I've ever seen it for regular shows. The band is only getting bigger with every album and with some markets like South Florida not having seen them in 10 years, it adds to that. But something stinks and I'm looking at Livenation. They play bullshit games all the time. It's bad enough they get these artists to play their shitty amphitheatres. I wouldn't put it past them to be holding back tickets and flooding the secondary market themselves for bigger profits.

Yep this is totally insane. Seen plenty of shows as well, it's never been like this. Sure, there have been times when I haven't been able to get the exact seats I want. But all previous Foo shows?? Got GA or floor with no problem. I saw plenty of other artists this year that sold out big venues - Muse, Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Tom Petty - and I was able to get tickets to every single one of them without fail, and GA in most cases. But today is laughably bad. Not a single ticket at the stroke of 10am? That's insane.

I agree about them playing games. Here in NY too, the second it hit 10AM, everything gone? Impossible, unless there are bots somewhere, or they are not releasing all seats in hopes of bigger profits. Too bad they will never be held accountable and we will never know. Either way, I still don't have any tickets and I have wanted to see them forever. This is the first time they are playing on Long Island, as far as I can remember.

I saw some GAs still available for the Kentucky date not too long ago... maybe it is just a sheer demand thing?

Just checked and there are some seats (nothing great, but seats nonetheless) for MSG and Jones...

Vegas not even giving the opportunity to pull up tickets.

"Oh-no! These tickets went fast and we're unable to find more right now."

Today is not my day.

This is absolute bullshit, I am trying for Las Vegas and same thing is happening. We really need to make some noise in all of the official channels and make sure this gets to the band. We (the most loyal fans) are completely being let down by LiveNation, Ticketmaster, and yes, the band.

It's a small venue, so I didn't have high hopes. And at $250 for Floor, it's probably for the best

I'm a vegas local and bummed that they are gone mostly to resellers. Ticketmaster should have done the verified fan by ticketmaster to help eliminate the fake fans.

Just paid 2x $430 for GA @ Vegas through Stubhub.

And honestly I think it's fair. If LiveNation and Band Management are not doing enough to make sure the tickets go to real fans, then more power to the scalpers (literally). I can't get mad at them for running a business.

Yes I just refunded in my seat at Lexington this afternoon, so I could swap it out for a GA. Still GA there for face value along with some really good seats.

Yep.

I was ready as well @ 10:00AM (twice). It didn't matter.

Vegas is a very small show so tickets were always going to sell quickly but myself and 5 friends all managed to get tickets so fans definitely got tickets to the show - it wasnt all bots or scalpers.

If this is the first time people have struggled to get tickets for shows, I can only say those people have been extremely lucky folks in the past.
