Garth Brooks shit show!
« on: April 14, 2012, 02:09:23 PM »
So i was up early and online waiting for 10:00am to roll around and exactly at 10 i tried to purchase tickets for approximately half an hour with no luck which really pissed me off.  I couldn't even buy nose bleeds if i wanted.  Then i go online and see the prices that people were asking for their tickets and thats when my frustration level went through the roof!  $10000 for 4 front row tickets your have got to be shitting me!!!!!  Other places are $1500/ticket for first level and it just keeps getting worse.  I always said to myself that if i ever got the chance to go see him i would shell out the $150-$250 dollars for decent seats to go see him.  For these prices those people that bought the tickes and are selling them at 400% mark up and more can stick their tickets where the sun don't shine.  Ill go to vegas for a week and see him as many times as i want and still save money.  I can't believe people can sleep at night and ask that much for tickets cause really its embarrassing especially when you pay $62.00/ticket and then sell them for $1500/ ticket.  What a joke is all i have to say and get a real job scalpers cause its EMBARRASSING!!!! Rant done.

The power of free enterprise. Don't be upset with the people charging the price, be upset with the goofs that will pay it.

     Completely forgot that they were going on sale yesterday.  Looks like it was a long shot but never know unless you try I guess. 

     While it is a free market it's still to bad people have to take advantage of others like that.  Who knows if he will ever come back to Alberta and at 62 bucks it's really a once in a lifetime oppurtunity for most.  With all those tickets getting scooped up by scalpers a lot of people got cheated.

  I fail to see the difference between scalpers making money on tickets that most of the populace isn't interested in or what outfitters do with our natural resources.  If you're rich and want to go then you go to every show or hunt whatever you want every year.

Ticket master is the biggest scalper, they hold tickets back for the scalping websites they own such as ticketsnow.com. Ticketmaster needs to fined.
