Anybody have any luck with presale?

#57622 2 years, 7 months ago
I decided to use front gate instead of mail order because i realized i like to know if i have tickets and where they are especially since plane tickets are involved in this but i was able to score 2 106 row 6 for msg and then what looks to be the center floor section row R for syracuse the next night. Pretty happy with the tickets was hoping for better msg tickets but oh well i can finally sleep easy again

I got home from work and online at like 12:01 so a tad late and I got shut out of MSG.....

I only had $$ for 3 out my 9 shows today so next I went for Mohegan and got 2 GA floor seats then I went for syracuse and got section 3 row P --- those shouldn't be bad? ...... then I got 2 GA for Portland

I went for MSG first just because, then I went for the 3 smallest venues on my list and got in on those 3 so I should be in good shape.....

Darn client called at 12 noon - think that's called Murphy's luck. I couldn't place my order until 12:15

I got locked out of Atlantic City and MSG - But I will definitely get some MSG somehow somewhere.

I got floor seats for Penn College ? , Wilkes Barre Pa and Syracuse.

If you've never seen them in Syracuse it's cool, the roof is held up by a vacuum so you are literally blown out the doors on the way out. Feels like invisible hands. Plus that show date is 11-11-11 Has to be good. Wonder if they will play the 11 ?

Pardon me for one minute: WHAT A STUPID, FREAKING, IDIOTIC, IMCOMPETENT SYSTEM THIS IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was on the Furthur site until 11:55, at which point I went to click into the "tour" page to go to Frontgate. I THEN SPENT 20 F'ING MINUTES TRYING TO GET ACCESS TO FURTHUR OR FRONTGATE AND ONLY GOT WHITE SCREENS SAYING CAN'T CONNECT!!! WTF?????

So when I finally got to the Frontgate waiting room, it was already 11:20, spent 5 or 10 minutes there, only to find NOTHING left for Indy and only mediocre floor seats for Columbus (which I did buy). I'm just in tears at this point- guess I'll have to try Ticketmaster on Friday for Indy; I want to be at that small show SO much it hurts!!! : ( Geez, and I thought the hard part would be just getting the dates. Damnit!!!!!!

The same thing happened to me. The site crashed and then got stuck in the waiting room. But I wasn't there long and got 3rd row on the floor for Manchester. I got the GA Portland tickets also. I think I will wait till Friday to buy my MSG ticket.

don't worry you'll get in. Frontgate does suck sometimes I was suprised I wasn't put in a waiting room.

When you try on friday keep searching however long it takes, sometimes it will say sold out but you could find seats after 20-30 minutes from people releasing them and what not. they also almost always release more tickets closer to the show date (but I know I wouldn't wanna wait that long to know if i get in or not either). if all else fails just ask around on the boards .... I'm sure you'll get in

last time I was on 4 hours early and still got put in a waiting line. I e-mailed frontgate and asked about this and they told me I probably have a better chance signing in right at 12 because the waiting line is designed "to give everyone a fair chance" .... I signed in at 12:01 today (got home late) and the page was slow loading for a few secs but then I got in, no waiting line

Mohegan - GA floor
Syracuse - section 3 - row P - seats 1 and 2
Portland - GA

sucks I could only buy 3 shows today....
