They hsuld just make it illegal for broker's to sell above face value period. If scalping is illegal, the the law needs to evolve to reflect changes in technology that make scalping a quarter of a mile away from the venue easy. Hardly anyone buys tickets in person anymore anyway, its all about online sales, and well, yeah, the law needs to evolve to accommodate the technology.

Hmmm...I'm not sure. You would think Gigs and Tours would be okay because that's where all the ticket buyers go to talk about the tickets they bought! :LOL:

Hmmm, gigs and threads? And a note saying 'please move to appropriate thread if in wrong place'?

Uh, well, I just finished it. Here's the link...

Hopefully its not all for naught.

 

satan, I was the second person to sign your petition last night (using my real name with my Muse.mu tag in parentheses)! I also left a comment -- something to the effect that I managed to get a decent ticket for myself but the process nevertheless affects us all. Then I selected the "private" option (sig saved for verification only; no public disclosure) and when I checked the sigs afterwards, my sig didn't show up at all -- not even as an "anonymous" or a greyed-out line or space. So I'm trusting that I actually am being counted there, but no one's sent me an email to verify my identity yet, so I dunno.... Is this normal for private petitioners? Anyone?

 

Are tickets sent out straight away in America?I bought mine in the presale for MSG but live in England, any help would be good.

 

Should be going out about now, in fact. Ticketmaster is known for actually combing through orders and weeding out those who break the rules and order more than four tix, deleting all their orders, so after that there should be a small dribble of tix up for sale in a second wave. When they sell those, presumably they'll review those orders (to screen for the greedy, again)... dunno how many waves of rejections and tix sales they go through until deciding that their tix sales are duly proper and final. Then, and probably only then, do they mail out all of the tix whose buyers opted for mailing and overnight delivery options.

tickets dont come until like 3 weeks before the show.

 

But I saw people on ebay already with the tickets, selling. They had pictures of the hard tickets.

Counterfeits? There were lots of counterfeit tickets circulating for a London O2 Arena show a couple of years ago, IIRC, and those tix even had holograms on them! (Not the right hologram; some cheapie substitute, but too many buyers didn't scrutinize them closely enough and got burned.)

Great. So if you're willing to pay for one of the so many thousand GA tickets that were sold on to resellers, you also have to be wary of fakes. I'm LOVING this.

 

I just want to see Muse in New York with my girl.

Personally I think that anyone who wasn't able to get GA tickets at the Garden should try the Philly show instead of buying from scalpers, and none of us should give any more profits from people who do nothing but take advantage of fans.

If you live in the UK the best choice is for your tickets to be picked up at the venue.
