ha this isn't working out as planned.

tickets are readily still available, people are being moved off the waitlist and tickets on stub hub are only like 260, which isn't a whole lot more than face value.

To be fair, we called that from the start. It's too expensive, very late notice, and full of so many restrictions and variations that people have no idea what's going on!

I was at the Black Keys show at the Wiltern last night and this happened to me. The issue wasn’t stubhub’s fault at all. Live Nation/Ticketmaster apparently made all of the tickets non-transferable, “rotating” the bar codes on every ticket so that they didn’t match once they were sold to a third party. Hundreds of people who bought real tickets that people re-sold on stubhub and other third party sites were turned away at the door. Once the set was about to start at 9:15 and they realized the theater was still half empty, they started letting us in. But a whole lot of people had already left by then. Point is, check your tickets to see if they say “non-transferable.” If so, they will do this at the palladium as well, and if you sell tickets and the person who bought yours gets rejected at the door, stubhub will refund the buyer and charge you for the full price of the ticket you listed plus a fee. If you buy on stubhub be prepared for this kind of situation. Maybe even call stubhub customer service first and ask if they have a read on this since it seems like it’s becomming common place with LNTM shows 

This is absurd. Is it even legal for TM / LN to do that? 

I was told by Stubhub that my Prophets of Rage ticket was used by someone else to get into the show before me, potentially the seller, who may have entered immediately as the show opened. 

I think it's fair to say anyone who purchases via Stub Hub should call them ahead of time and get the issues sorted so you can enjoy the show.

Just scored a "regular" $175 Citi ticket an hour after the initial onsale.  Was moved off the waitlist about 9:30am and had to go through several browsers both on my phone and desktop and multiple texted phone codes and passwords  before I could find one that would actually get through whatever glitches are going on with TM's ordering process.  Seems like there's heavy demand but the hoops people have to jump through to complete a ticket buy is just insane and probably putting a lot of buyers off this gig. Tremendous hassle but worked out in the end.

By 'glitches' you mean Ticketmaster's usual bullshit of trying to give the illusion of false demand to make fans buy tickets at prices they've inflated themselves, because they have the monopoly on selling? 

I despise Ticketmaster.

Good to see people from this forum are actually going to the concert.

Looking forward to the unnerving setlist updates :lol:

Had the same issue. The TM site is pretty bad for a large corporation.

Man I wish I could go but I can't afford that much right now. I guess I'll watch videos on Tako's IG after the gig.

You think they might hand out free tickets at the door tomorrow night if the venue isn't full? Like they did at the Apollo.

The Apollo show was a Sirius XM invite only concert. No tickets were sold. If anyone was given entry at the door, and not invited, it's bc some of the industry execs that were invited didn't show and Sirius wanted to do the right thing.

I doubt it, but you might be able to get in cheaper on the door if you go in last-minute....

Yeah, it's pretty fucked up and I'm pretty familiar with their BS "flex-Pricing" gimmick even though I only go to less than half a dozen shows per year anymore.  But this is the first time I've seen it used the first hour a shows gone onsale.

Guess they've got their thieving mitts going quickly as the show is in 24 hours!
