This BS happens every time due to the way concert tickets are sold. This is one of those industries that's still leaving in the 20th century :evil:

Avoid ticketmaster where possible. I was on there site waiting for it to go on sale at 10 since 9am and then it ticked over and was instantly sold out. Rushed over to AXS website and got some first time. Very annoying as I needed 3 but only managed to get 2 so now my mum can't come with us. Thanks Ticketmaster!

Usual appalling service from Ticketmaster for the Glasgow gig.

Online before 10am and nothing left at 10am.

So we'll not be going.

This is the first gig in Scotland I'll have missed since 1995 when I missed the SECC gig.

Can still get tickets from Getmein.
Ticketmaster Resale
Galleryfrom £121-£164*
Rear Circlefrom £143-£160*
Front Circlefrom £160-£215*
Stallsfrom £165-£209*

* Prices shown exclude delivery costs

Ticket Touts are frowned upon but corporate Ticket Touts like Ticketmaster are ok it seems.

Bournemouth ticket in the bag. Anyone having trouble with Ticketmaster as I did, try bhlivetickets.co.uk which is run direct from the bic.

I had same probs, managed to get 4 tickets in the terraced area from bhlive. I was stressed, I had a cup of tea and then managed to pick up a single ticket in Block B for Wembley. (the others will have to fight for what's left!!). Both purchases have been confirmed by e-mail.

Thanks both of you! By the time I was able to check these, I had no luck. But you sustained me to keep trying. At first it was only one-off tickets I could see, but the availability kept varying.

Then, suddenly, a screen refresh on EventIm brought up two together, so that's us into the circle! There's obviously a bunch of abandoned shopping carts and returned bulk allocations out there.

In the meantime I see the GetMeIn list grows ever longer at 2-3x listprice, 100 tickets there now. I expect those speculative prices might just deflate in the coming months

The shame of it is that probably they aren't all 'scalpers', but some are 'fans' that really only need two tix but buy their full allocation and try to profiteer from the surplus. Furthermore, on three occasions I have returned to a primary ticket agents to find that tickets for shows that have been completely sold out on their site for months re-appear on their site about three days before the event. This has happened with The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and Fleetwood Mac. Probably the only people that get left high and dry are true fans who either can't get tickets or pay these inflated prices.
The 2015 shows at the Royal Albert Hall went the same way and the whole sordid business hit the headlines in the UK during the aftermath of the sale of the Phil Collins tickets at the RAH. They were sold out in seconds but started appearing on secondary or 'partner' sites for anything up to £2,000 for front row seats. Whist they were being loaded on sites true fans were still in the waiting room.

Like certain English Premier league matches, agencies etc buy tickets en-mass and try to on-sell. They hold them for as long as they are getting orders at higher dollars (pounds) and return them at an agreed time, whereupon extra seats suddenly appear at more or less regular prices. The risk is that the agencies clients sell out and none are returned.

It's so easy anyone can profiteer from selling tickets at inflated prices. In the old days professional touts had their patch outside venues or football stadiums and anyone who 'trespassed' on to that 'patch' would be given a short, sharp shock. I had a genuine spare ticket for a show once and just wanted to get what I could for it - I was warned off in no uncertain terms.
Hiding behind the safety of the PC's 17" screen in the warm anyone can become a 'scalper', but they are not your old school professionals.

The secondary sites are full to bursting - seats five rows behind me in Block B3 Wembley, still selling double face value and more. Disgusting!

tried but could only reach Krampus :twisted: ,who convinced me to scalp my dublin ticket at an outrageous price (to fund some other shows) and also program my own "bot" for future onsales. Then he hit me on the back of the head with a stick :lol:
