I personally think its crappy to be a fan of the band and get presale but end up with worse seats then some random person.... I guess I will have to try and get better seats on friday and sell these

I think the big issue this time around for the pre-sale was the password was made available to pretty much anyone who gives a shit about the band ie:facebook/twitter fans. from my own experience in the past, when the presale passwords were just offered for those subscribed on the mailing list or through radio station giveaways, you had much better luck getting floor/lower bowl seats.

hopefully everyone has better luck on friday

Obviously there must be another way to get the GA seats. I find it hard to believe they just sold out like that. I guess Friday it is.

I personally don't think it's right to post the password on social networking sites. It not fair to us die hard fans who really appreciate the Foos. I wanted GA as well. I settled on Loge, and Ticketmaster booted me during checkout. Twice. Same thing happened to my husband. Guess I'll keep trying....
Oh, by the way....I'm flying from ATL just to see them at the Forum.

I received an e-mail saying the tickets go on sale Friday at 10am for the Oakland show. Is that Pacific time or Eastern time?

A bunch of people were able to get GA tickets for yesterday's LA second show presale with no problem. KROQ and Facebook along with antiquiet.com all posted and said on radio the password. Look at my LA thread. I think that ticketmaster released a minimum number. There are only so many seats released at presales.

Same here, went on at 10am for Calgary, got nosebleeds, kept trying, nothing doing, actually used the phone, selected GA through the automated system, nothing available, re-selected best available and was offered 4 GA tickets!?! Go figure!! Is the ticketmaster system now completely random in the tickets you get offered?

jill - i was wondering of you had any info as to why live nation would send an email about the la oct 13 & 14 shows and then take down all info about the 14th show on the day the presale started. it was weird i could no longer see that the show was even happening so we bought for thursday. they added the show only yesterday. i am just confused and i asked someone else on another thread that seemed to be annoyed. i am just wondering is this a live nation issue. in fact the livenation app showed both show dates but you couldn't access it, while it was non-existent on the website. even the live nation people over the phone said they have been receiving phone calls and had nothing to tell the people as to why. thanks

Yes, from what I have found out, (haven't done this in years) I have been on the phone with them 3 times now trying to get specific tickets and they are refusing to give me aisle seats. I found out you can instead go to stub hub and find aisle seats for $30.00 more. This whole thing is ruining the idea for me I'm about ready to get rid of the tickets I have purchased. I did the pre-sale (still trying to figure out what the f**k that means if you can't get the seats you want), purchase tickets, then called them trying to get aisle seats they have them but refuse to let me purchase them. I told them I would buy all four tickets if I had too, no dice they are forcing you to pick random tickets, ruins it for me at this point.

My tickets are not for Calgary..

I would assume that Ticketmaster and Foo weren’t ready to announce a second show so they probably shouldn’t have had it visible on the website. LiveNation error. It wasn’t meant to upset anyone but more be a “surprise” that a second show was added.

So I got my tickets today for the foo fighters concert at the Forum and it says No recorders/audio/video. So does this mean that I spent $150 and I can't even take pictures and record some songs??? That's beyond ridiculous!
