I find it hard to believe that a 16 year old kid spent $1,220 for 10 tickets yet he can't afford to go to the shows? Not doubting you, but it sounds a bit off to me helper.
if you truly bought these off stub hub why not post your receipts? You do that I believe they you'd receive a warmer reception. In my experience if it talks like a scalper and acts like a scalper, well it probably is a scalper.
I'm really saddened by this thread. When did the witchhunt begin ??
He isn't a scalper. He's a 16 year old from Virgina named Sage. The bus picked him up just last fall at Red Rocks. He intended to spend his school Easter break in NY and he spent a good chunk of his savings on these tickets. Now he's in a crunch because his tour buddy can't cover their portion of travel and lodging.
I know this because I spoke to him, and he is heartbroken he can't go. We bought two pairs of tickets at the price he listed.
The Beacon ticket situation - small venue, few other local shows in the area - it's not ideal, but it's gotten downright ugly.I don't understand why resellers have split so many aftermarket pairs but it is what it is, and the self-proclaimed fans with their lame apologies and confessing "I'm broke and really need $100 above face on these", shame on them.
And as for this kid, his life was changed by his first show. We all had to start somewhere and I wonder how many of us would have stuck around after being burned at the stake just for being green.
Shame on us.
My apologies if my observations and instinct were off on this one. Certainly not meant as an attack, and if helper got "burnt" by someone not my thing to kick someone when they are down.
The fact that the same tickets are not posted on a new thread, and now Helper lists more tickets for sale than he had one week earlier made me suspicions.
Helperman, I certainly owe you an apology if I was incorrect in my educated guess. Again, if you are concerned about all the doubters I strongly recommend posting at least one of your receipts, even if sanitized. Then you'll see the skeptics will become believers.
Nobody here wants to see a 16 year old kid lose money over tickets, believe me on that. Especially if he;s not attending the shows. Regular visitors know we spend a lot of effort trying to get people NOT to buy from Stub hub and scalpers.
