At least there is still Broomfield to look forward too!!!


That's what I was just saying. Not a horrible thing to have to look forward too - 3 nights at Broomfield.

4 shows in a row proves to be a bit much for me these days anyhow... if I got (get?) Ogden, we were thinking of skipping the Sunday Broomfield show and saving an extra vacation day to go camping this summer.

Ogden WTF!!!!

Not the first post i wanted to make on the family site, but this getting ridiculous.

THE STUB HUB NAZIS MUST BE STOPPED

Furthur ticketing management needs to fix this problem. For pre sale and public sale for the Ogden show I was online with my girlfriend 45min before hand. Both times I had the option to order before 10:01 and both times it said no tickets were available, even for a 1 ticket order.
Yet both times tickets were all ready on sale on stub hub less than 5 min later. Now they start at $230!!!!

For dedicated fans, this is an outrage and should not be a problem. Furthur management should be able to control this issue better than they do.

Maybe for other lame acts this would be an issue, but the Grateful Dead/ Furthur people who run the show have always made sure at least the fans got the tickets. Not the bulk of the scalping community.

STEP IT UP GUYS. IT SHOULDN'T BE THIS WAY


I went to a Red Hot Chili Peppers show recently and for the better tickets (floor and 100-level) you, the ticket purchaser had to be there and swipe your credit card to get in - totally ticket-less. Keeps scalpers away but also makes it sort of a pain as sometimes I will buy show tix for non-Furthur shows so many months in advance and then I may decide not to go and want to sell them (for face+fees only though, never for a profit!)

The other hassle was in the months between purchase and show, my credit card number was compromised so I got a new card with new number so had to make multiple phone calls to make sure I could still get in! No system will work for everyone all the time.

Yeah that system certainly puts you in a spot if you cant go at the last minute and want to resell even at face value. Im willing to chance it though. Will call only seems like the best solution to me, that way you can at least pick them up before the show if your local to resell them.

Sounds like a great plan FF67. Chins up people. Tickets always seem to pop up with perservance even for tough ones. And as has been stated, 3 nights at broomfield doesnt suck.
Right now, I can't read too well...

Wow...well, apparently I got very lucky. I had 2 'puters working and both got into the wait room at 9:55A. One got almost immediately into the sale site at 10:00AM, the other not until 10:05 (by that time there were no tix). So, very happy with the 2 I managed to score. At least one of my buddies will be VERY happy, the other 2, not so much.

It's not the Ogden's fault! But the one shady thing I guess was letting people into the waiting room before 10 am. Ahh well they had to do something to keep their server from crashing so I guess they were trying to do the right thing at least
