I e-mailed Artist Arena to ask why for some of the concerts the highest priced tickets are not available. Here is their response.

-------------

Hello

There were many of the highest priced tickets avaialable, however they sold out very quickly.

Regards

ArtistArena

I don't believe that. I looked at Toronto the INSTANT they went on sale and there were no high priced tickets available. I think they are trying to create a false demand for tickets.

I got 2 high priced tickets for Toronto. They sold out in a second though. I was on 3 computers and the second they were on, only on one of them I got a pair of tickets.

I'll be sitting in row 15 :)

Also, the first about 10 rows are in the Gold and Platinum packages only... You can still be dead centre 1st row for 1200 US$ if you want. I'm a huge fan, but I'll settle for what I have :) 360 US$ is already a lot more than what I'm usually ready to pay for a gig.

How come it was $160? I thought the most expensive tickets were $119?

I'm going to be getting Vancouver tickets and according to HOB and Ticketmaster, the most expensive tickets are $115 Canadian.

Why do I have a feeling that it's going to be more expensive for Artist Arena?

I have some doubts about the Vancouver concert and I hope you gays can help me:

As I undestood, there's a pre-sale at artistarena but only platinum and gold VIP packages and the ticketmaster pre-sale will be available the next friday, am I right?....

At the Ticketmaster.ca they show the next numbers: CA$45 - CA$115, but they aren't available, until december 9. Have you already brought tickets?




I can resist everything, except temptation

Canada tickets went onsale this afternoon - 2pm PST.

I logged on at 2:00pm exactly and got these seats:

No.18 - 24
No.18 - 25

I take it that it means Row 18, seats 24/25?

My other computer I was trying logged in 5 seconds later and it was at No.18 - 34. I then checked at 2:05pm and it was No. 24 - 7.

The floor plan for the concert is Queen's floor plan, it doesn't list the row numbers or seats, so I have no idea where we are!

Vancouver-
Floor Row 20, Seats 11, 12

101 USD plus fees---not too far from end of cat walk--we'll see where seats 11,12 are I think they are on the aisle which would not be bad.
