  1. RATM are back

    It was amazing. I reloaded at 12:00 got in, picked my front of stage, checked out and paid. All within 2 mins. No waiting. No waiting room. No nothing. Never ever had such a hasslefree experience for a show that was sold out in 20 minutes. Whereas for Toronto I reloaded at the start, had 2000 people in front of me, got in 40 minutes later and all that was available was those damn charity tix. But I'm good with that, more time to explore Toronto. Just don't know how I can wait until September.

    Yeah. Not as bad as I thought it would be.

    Almost a millennial. But as it is, more of a Gen Xer.
  4. Or you do the same. https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/iron-maidens-stance-against-exploitative-ticketing-proves-a-huge-success/

    Thanks. So I will go check there. Have to know how it works, just in case they come back here.  PS: And how about someone changing the thread title? The tour is not postponed anymore.
  6. They had personalized tickets. They eliminated sales exceeding the purchase limit. They cancelled sales they suspected were for resales. Same as Rammstein. Tickets are personalized. Name on ticket has to match ID. There is no entrance with non matching IDs. The only way you can resell the tickets is on the original site, where the ticket can only be sold at a minimal higher fee. That's the only way to prevent scalpers. Everything else is just idle talk.
  7. Yes. It is you, who should shut the fuck up. It's not me who wrote that bullshit statement: Since the announcement of our tour, scalpers and broker sites have been listing fake tickets for RATM. We want to do everything we can to protect our fans from predatory scalping and, at the same time, raise a substantial amount of money for charities and activist organizations we support in each city. At many concerts, up to 50% of the seating is scooped up by scalpers and then resold to fans at much higher fees. We are doing everything we can to protect 90% of the RATM tickets from scalpers, and then WE are holding in reserve 10% of the seating (random seats throughout each venue) to sell at a higher ticket price (but low enough to undercut the scalpers). We will donate 100% OF THE MONEY over the fees and base ticket price to charities and activist organizations IN EACH CITY. We are confident this will help many more fans get tickets at face value and put a big dent in the aftermarket gouging. WE HATE SCALPING AS MUCH AS YOU DO and will continue to try to find ways to combat it. Additionally, we are donating all profits from our first three shows to immigrants' rights organizations and will be supporting multiple charities and activist organizations throughout the tour. They did do nothing to prevent tickets to get into scalpers hands, as thousands of tickets are available through reseller sites and not one "more fan" is able to get their hands on face value tickets due to their charity ploy. If I have to pay an extra 400 $ on top of the ticket price, it is not face value. It's 5 times as much. 550 $ for floor, as it was in Toronto, also is not really less then what scalpers would charge. And in fact they took 10% of tickets that fans could have gotten at face value out of the market, so created even more demand for the remaining face value tickets. If, despite trying since the tickets went on sale, all that is left are fucking charity tickets, then yes, that is what I would have to pay to see them. Thankfully, they did that charity ploy only in North America. In Austria they sold regular tickets and I got a regular floor, despite the show being sold out in 20 minutes also over here.
  8. They said they did it to prevent scalping and mentioned scalpers. And again. It is ignorant and arrogant to demand people who want to see a fucking rockshow to pay several hundred dollars to charity. They could have sold regular tickets and donated something themselves, if they care so much about charity. They are the millionaires making millions on this tour.
  9. Rolling Stones Eternal Touring Thread

    Thanks. I will do that, should they come back to Europe. 3 years ago, I heard that most of the lucky dip tix were in the expensive section up front.
  10. Rolling Stones Eternal Touring Thread

    I just checked on the tour dates section, it only says tickets and vip. So it only shows up when they are actually available? At which time would that be, when tix go on sale initially or sporadically between that and the show?
  11. True. But before I do that, I'd rather not go to a show at all. Charity or no charity.
  12. Rolling Stones Eternal Touring Thread

    And where exactly would they pop up? On the website or directly on Ticketmaster? Didn't pay too much attention the last time, as I usually prefer to choose my own seat.
  13. Yeah. A very bad one. It would really be better if they'd just done nothing, as it really is not helping the fan.
  14. And is total bullshit and doesn't help one bit. The only ones that got it right were Rammstein and Iron Maiden. All others are making things just worse with their dubious actions.
