Just a heads up for anyone who doesn't have their ticket yet and plans on going to the NJ show that Ticketmaster has tickets up.

I just bought my ticket about 20 minutes ago -- $85.00, Section 122 - Row 3. They also have the $125 tix available. I typed that in just to see if they had any available and it gave me one for Section 109 one time and another for Floor 5.

Looks like the ones that the corporations didn't use and ticket brokers couldn't sell are "mysteriously" appearing in Ticketmaster's system, after weeks of getting the "We could not find any tickets to match your request" message from Ticketmaster. Don'tcha just love Ticketmaster?!?...LOL

Unfortunately it's always the way. It really sucks the way that ticketmaster works.

That really sucks. I would hate it if I bought nosebleed seats only to find good ones available now. Ticketbastards...

Ticketbastards indeed. I'm definitely not complaining since I got good seats last night, but it kind of makes it pointless of having presales when you end up with just as good as, or even better, seats by getting your tickets a few days before the concert, unless you bought a package in the presale.

There's plenty of good ones left, too. I just checked again just to see what came up and you can get 8 tickets ($125), Row 12 Section 109. It almost makes you wonder just how good the concert really is selling when you can get 8 top seats in a row a week before the concert.

I tried to tell everyone this would happen on queenonline.I go to every concert this way.It is not ticketmaster,it is the band,and mostly the promoter.When Bruce Springsteen played here a few months ago,the promoter held back 3000 tickets.So you are right,presales are usually pretty worthless.There are now plenty of tickets on ebay for way less than face value.You can do this for almost every concert you would ever want to go to.Just wait until a few days or a week before and all the good seats pop up.

Yes...the above is true.

Also keep in mind that VIPs and other Guests invited by the band have tickets set aside early on before any pre-sales.

Usually a week or so before the show, they know how many of these special guests are coming and whatever seats are left are usually resold then.

I also have seen many folks score incredible seats the day of a show right at the box office window. If you know the way things work, and you are willing to take a chance, things can often work out good for you.

Keep this in mind folks for 2006...NOW you know!! :)
