Offical I got fucked in the ass thread

So who all tried really hard to get tickets for the shows they wanted and ended up with nothing?

I find it amazing that these shows sold out in a matter of seconds...

I guess we gotta wait for the stadium tour now huh?

Re: Offical I got fucked in the ass thread

I got lucky somehow with 1 ticket. I really feel bad though about all the other hardcore fans that don't get to see them (or have to pay really expensive $) on the theate tour.

I'm in the same boat. Hell, I need a second ticket now, but not much I can do..and even so, it wouldn't be for the seat next to me. But I've very happy about my one still.:)

Re: Offical I got fucked in the ass thread

I feel extraordinarily lucky today. I scored tix to 3 different shows. I SHOULD have an extra ticket for the Detroit, KC, and Oakland shows. I have yet to receive the tix for the latter two (damn 72 hour delay), but once I have them I'll be looking to sell. I'm not a scalper, otherwise I'd be posting on Ebay instead of here. I'm just a fellow Tool fanatic who shares your disdain for scalpers. There's still hope for at least 3 of you. I'll keep you posted.

Re: Offical I got fucked in the ass thread

Ok, I just talked to City Tix. They have not been told to tell people that they are sold out, only that there are no available at this time. That means if people who have reserved don't follow thru there's still hope. The girl I spoke with said that the she's only seen it this bad for Alicia Keys, Ray Charles and Melissa Ethridge. She also said that they had no idea how many Tool fans there were and the thought of the servers not being able to handle us was not even an issue.

Also, the reason why they don't go through Ticketmaster is that they have their own service (although clearly not able to handle large volume) and they never charge hanling fees, tax, etc.

If you ask me, the $5.00 handling fee is well worth the time and anxiety we all went through today.

I was at the counter, getting out my credit card when the fucktard behind the window told me they were sold out.

Yes, I am pissed.

Re: Offical I got fucked in the ass thread

assfucking and tickets have nothing to do with each other. unless youre going to assfuck someone for a pair of tickets. then i see the point of this thread.

Re: Offical I got fucked in the ass thread

This is for BLAIR and all the other Fucks at Toolarmy! You are a Fucking Joke! I have been a member for 4.5 years and NO Presale, NO Nothing! What is a Fan Club for? So people like myself and others who have paid to Toolarmy don't end up feeling how I feel right now. Getting Tool tickets is such a hassle it takes the enjoyment out of it! and by the way, NOBODY gives a FUCK about your personal BULLSHIT on Toolband! FUCK OFF! Post shit about the band or don't post at all, you weirdo freak! When you think about it TOOL really does treat their FANS like SHIT! Constantly playing games on the website and misleading people about release dates, record listening parties, etc.. THINK ABOUT IT! The Toolarmy lack of HELP Blows! More people on this site right NOW didn't get tickets than did! I almost just want say FUCK TOOL! but it is hard to do. Broker prices minimum 300.00 for anything decent, that is 4 times as much! Fuck this world and the system, It is a Rich Man's game these days! The TRUE Fans seemed to get screwed!

Re: Offical I got fucked in the ass thread

my wife called a ticketbroker to "vent" her frustration after our valiant efforts to get tickets only to find them on ebay for 500% markups. they said

"we are the doctors of the music world. when you get sick you goto a doctor, when you need tickets you come to us"

i want to shoot someone in the face right now. those fucking pricks.


they had 2 single tickets available for chicago when we were on the line...should have picked them up and tried to trade for a pair somewhere else...hindsight is 20/20 i guess....

Re: Offical I got fucked in the ass thread

Paid $245 a piece for 2 floor tix to the Boston show. Once in a lifetime opportunity to see Tool in such a small venue. Would have preferred the $66.66 face value price though :(

I was getting greedy. I already have a ticket to Coachella, but I wanted to see them in Tempe. Oh well, I guess one Tool concert a week is good too.

That's A LOT of $! :(
but you could do worse. I've seen ticket brokers charging a lot more than that for floor tix to these shows, depending on location. And you know, these venues are all small enough that it doesn't make THAT big a difference where you're at.
