    Nope. Apparently they’re trying to combat resellers by pricing out 10% of seats, “Official RATM Charity Ticket”. I don’t care if the band isn’t keeping most of that cash and where it’s going- the pricing is insane. Go take a look at the El Paso show where flood seats are over $1,000.00. For that kind of coin the purchaser should be able to pick where the money goes. Would rather take chances with scalpers.

    Yeah, some floor tickets opened up for the Portland, OR show earlier. Only $520 EACH, what a steal! (they were the "Official RATM Charity Tickets")

    So things are about to get a whole lot more interesting regarding these tickets I tried to buy earlier today...

    So, I logged onto my online banking tonight to see if something came out of my account, and I noticed that I had 16 transactions from Ticketleader take out $193.75 (the price of the RATM ticket I tried to buy earlier).
    13 of them are pending on my mastercard and 3 of them came straight out of my bank acct because I changed to my VISA debit to try that card instead when the mastercard didn't work.

    So now I spent $3,100 on RATM tickets and I didn't actually get any tickets out of it... the transaction timed out and kept fucking up, then the timer ticked down and I lost my ticket, so the transaction never went through. Yet they charged me. I called my bank, they said that there wasn't much they could do and to call Ticketleader (the company handling the sales of these tickets. Not ticketmaster, ticketleader, something else) and hope for the best...

    I really don't like where this is going. Am I fucked out of $3000 here? I mean, I shouldn't be responsible for paying that if they never physically sold me anything in return. Would I be wasting time and money if i hired a lawyer to sue them? Just curious what to do here if this joke of a company decides to say the charges are valid. Anyone have any advice on this? It's 4am and I'm heading to bed, but I'll be calling this "ticketleader" first thing when I get up tomorrow... Wish me the best. I have a feeling I'm going to be jumping though some major hoops to get my money back here.

    Most have a ticket limit of four, so at the least they should cancel most of the tickets if not all.

    This article is hysterical

    Is the Mastercard a credit or debit card? If it's a credit card, the Fair Credit Billing Act allows for the dispute of charges within 60 days of the receipt of the bill containing the disputed charges. Needs to be done in writing.

    Yeah, I don't understand this pricing. I get it, they have to make a living, musicians don't make money off of record sales/spotify plays anymore and they need to tour, supply v demand (they haven't toured in a while, so supply has been scarce and demand high, so they can price the tickets a lot higher because of the demand), and yes, they are donating some of that money to charity, and yes, they are bringing out Run the Jewels, a top live act. Plus, inflation, yes. But still...they won't be doing Tool/Rammstein levels of stage production (where yes, that price point is justified).

    For a band so associated with the left...jeez. I could understand a price point between $75~$125.

    Is ticketleader the off brand Ticketmaster?

    It's two separate cards. I tried a MasterCard (actual credit card) and once that wasn't working I changed to my debit card to try, and that failed as well. 13 times on the MasterCard. 3 times on the debit card.

    It's not really affiliated w/ ticketmaster at all. It's like the poor man's version of ticketmaster, I guess lol. Just a random ticketing agency in town that only deals with this one venue. It's not a country wide company, just local to Vancouver.

    Anyway, I called them this morning. The claim that none of the transactions actually went through and should fall off/be rejected within 3 business days. I'll just have to keep an eye on it to see if they do or not.

    Will anyone be seeing them at Bluesfest in Ottawa? i would rather not and prefer an arena show but cutting out travel and accommodation costs of going to Toronto might end up being cheaper for me.

    Looks like February 19 at 10AM will be my only shot for the best priced tickets as the way they have it run down on their site they have 2 presale tiers at $1XX and $2XX, regular tickets end up going to $3XX. If i miss that lower tier i ain't fucking going LOL

    Fucking scalpers and resellers, I just checked StubHub for the show here in Sioux Falls...

    -1564 tickets available (venue capacity is 13,000. That's 12% of the tickets!)
    -Floor tickets range from $293 to $818, $900, and $6300!

    Fuck! Take into account the bands 10% charity tickets and leaves just over 10,000 available for the general public. They should have done physical tickets sales only, make people line up ala Physical World style.

    (So when Tom said they "stopped 85% of the scalpers" he was right!)

    I remember Foo Fighters doing this back on the tour when Dave sat in the throne for every show. Tickets were only available at the venue box office, no service fees. It was smooth as fuck.

    Damn! I wish I could score tickets to events.
    Then again, that show ain't coming to me... Was more so still sour about not getting RATM tickets.

    In other news, the 13 pending transactions for the attempted RATM tickets on my mastercard fell off, but the 3 that I tried with my debit bank account are still there. It's my understanding that the bank account ones are a little more tricky to deal with. Will give it a couple more days and call the ticket company and my bank back again.
