Re: MSG presale was a joke!

Well I hate to break it to folks, but "The Mob" is alive & well. No one got on prior to 10:05 even though tm said 10 o'clock start. They had "somehow" blocked access for the 1st 5 minutes and snapped up the great seats. Inside job for sure. This is nothing new-- I had a "friend" who "knew" someone at Spectrum management and we would know about shows WAY before the general public- all we had to do was tell em what shows we wanted. BINGO...prime example...as I was sitting reading a preview of the first Eagles reunion tour 94? my "friend" calls me the show was next day. He had got a fight with his gf and wanted to know if I wanted to go as he needed someone to go with now. This was THE first tour with outrageous prices. I tell em I'd love to go but I aint paying 150 to see em. He says buy me a few beers we'll call it even. We get into the show walk up to our 5th row seats right in front of Joe Walsh. As we are waitin for the show to start the guy next to me says " Frank Sinatra couldn't get these seats"..btw this was in Philly (winking guy emoticon)

..as Bruce Hornsby would say "thats just the way it is, somethings will never change"

out of curiosity, how fast if at all do yall think MSG will sell out?


It won't. Maybe night of show but I highly doubt it. If it was a weekend or multi nights It would be quicker. Big $$$ to get in Manhatten for 1 show, especially on a Thursday.

In 1999 I joined the crowd out side a shop in Manhattan called The Wiz(Nobody beats The Wiz) which had a Ticketmaster outlet inside. They passed out coupons and called out the numbers to organize a line and I became number 5 in line. They then let the first five in but shut me -- number 5 -- out! I argued politely, to no avail ,with the Bitch at the door.

The crowd and I watched as two guys in trench coats -- who were already inside the store before we got there -- took my spot on line and bought a bunch of tickets(we could see them clearly enough from where we were). They were kind of Mediterranean looking. So yes Virginia there sure is some corruption in the ticketing process.

I still got tickets. It was Bruce Springsteen's 1999 MSG run.

couldn't get 3 seats together. What is the point of a presale anyway. To see how much demand there is for a concert. Its really terrible what TM does to people by releasing a few tickets, going to jump on tomorrow

Only $1029 for 3rd row seats on stubhub! Who would spend that kind of dough? The whole TM, Stubhub thing is legalized robbery.

i was trying most of morning using my phone , that kept screwing up on me, it pissed me off the last time i tried i actuall got a flloor seat in sectiton 3 row 1 seat 1 but when i went to submit, the page froze up. I live in country so I had to drive to city to get internet access. i had a chance at section 107 but to much to side of stage and $83 so i ended up with section 343 which is way back but infront of stage and only $63 . point is Im in and I ll move around .

You always get shut out for at least ten minutes for any MSG venue event.However persistence paid off today.I got section F row 4.Positive vibrations always works for me.

I hear ya! Had to do it on my phone, too. Was hoping to get 4, but could only get 2. I don't even care where my seats are (I never sit in them anyway) I'm just glad to get in the door!
