Ticketmaster Sucks

Yah, it’s true. Buying tickets from Ticketmaster is actually HELL for music enthusiasts and concert goers. As you may or may not know I am a HUGE Red Hot Chili Peppers fan and I am part of their fan club (yah, laugh it up…I’m a nerd). So, they recently announced a tour and fan club members got a pre presale passcode. Knowing this I WAS STOKED. I was sure to get tickets, wasn’t I. NOPE. I was not.
Well…..this is how it went down:

9:00am – Logged into Ticketmaster

9:15am – Refresh and watch countdown (45 minutes)

9:30 am – Refresh and watch countdown

9:40 am – Refresh and watch countdown

9:43 am – Refresh and watch countdown

9: 52 am – Refresh and watch countdown

9:53 am – Refresh and watch countdown and now filled with ANXIETY

9:55 am – Refresh and watch countdown

9:56 am – Refresh and watch countdown and now my palm are sweaty

9:58 am – Refresh and watch countdown

9:59 am – Refresh and watch countdown. AHHHH

10:00 am – NO TICKETS AVAILABLE (What the hell?)

10:01 am – Refresh and NO TICKETS AVAILABLE

10:01 am – Refresh and NO TICKETS AVAILABLE

10:02 am – Refresh and NO TICKETS AVAILABLE

10:03 am – Refresh and NO TICKETS AVAILABLE

10:04 am – Refresh and NO TICKETS AVAILABLE so I head to Stubhub

10:05 am – Tickets on Stubhub priced at $119 are now for sale at a $300-$500 price tag (per ticket)

10:06 -11:00am – Refresh and NO TICKETS AVAILABLE so at 11am I spent a small mortgage on 2 tickets

Yes, I know that this was just a pre presale but that is SHITTY! I wanted good seats. If I waited until Friday, when they went on sale to the general public, I think I would l have the same problem or end up in the nose bleeds (which would have been meh). Why even have a presale if you don’t have tickets for sale? It seemed as if scalpers already had the tickets ahead of time and that hurts my soul. So, big bands who place big arenas, I will no long be supporting your live shows because this was too damn annoying for me. I’m going to stick to music festivals, smaller shows where I can get tickets easily and FREE concerts. I know I’m just one fan but this has to stop.
