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
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
To be fair, they (the Ogden) did say that the wait room would open up "shortly" before the on sale time. Now, I didn't know whether that was a half-hour, 15 minutes, 10 minutes or what. Turns out it was 5 minutes...I didn't take any chances, and was refreshing the screen about every 30 seconds from 9:45A on, and got immediately into the wait room at 9:55A.
