Tool sales wrap-up, APC do Arizona

Ticket sales for the two side shows have now pretty much wrapped up, with Melbourne sold out, and Brisbane being close to it – at time of writing there were some silver tickets only left, all single seats.  Ticketek sales for the Brisbane show went pretty smoothly, and Ticketmaster for Melbourne not so.  My experience this morning with Ticketmaster was that at about 9:00:15 there were only GA tickets left, and by 9:03:00 they were all gone. 

No point going again into the debacle that was the Ticketmaster/Toolarmy Pre-sale, but I hope everyone has been able to get a ticket to the show they desire, even if it wasn’t in the seating position of their liking.  As usual, scalpers will be making a killing, with GA Melbourne tickets at around $250 online, and Gold tickets anywhere between $350-$900.  Take care if you are planning on heading down this route, and be aware that any tickets you try to buy and sell on Fourtheye must be at face value plus reasonable postage costs.  Leave the scalping for Ebay.  If you are looking at trading tickets, then please use the trading thread I’ve just created.

A Perfect Circle have kicked off their West Coast US Tour with the first three dates in Arizona.  Talking to people who attended the shows, it was a great, although short experience, as the band played their nominated album on the night, and not much else.  Don’t go expecting a two hour (or even 90 minute) set and you won’t be disappointed.  Here’s a review plus a couple of photos for those interested.

    / I’ve had them in my posession since last monday… no phone calls, I think im safe.

     
    i had my physical tickets before they rang to try to cancel. she first told me the tickets wont scan correctly at the venue. not sure if this is true tho.
     
    I can see this being a really big problem for anyone who tries to buy tickets on ebay now. beware of dodgy tickets!!

    big question I have on that one is if/when TM is going to re-release the recalled tix and if there’ll be some sort of announcement

    They have already done it. It was last Friday afternoon.

    I should elaborate… I know some tickets have been available at random… I’ve checked and came across lawns a few times, but it’s hit or miss. I was expecting some sort of “official” announcement that limited seats/ticets are still available.

    I have a hard time believing TM is capable of rectifying the problem with phone calls in one day and in doing so, all seats, if any recollected, are immediately re-sold out without any general public knowledge of tickets once again being available nearly a week after it’s been “officially” sold out.

    The fanclub option is up and active, but has not returned a hit upon random periodic attempts to see if tix are indeed available.

    They had a massive list of phone numbers of fanclub members that called and complained on the day of the pre-sale. Ticketmaster were instructed by the promoter to assist any TA member that missed out on fanclub pre-sale tickets. It’s just a shame that they never made this public knowledge, I had to call the promoter to find that out.

    I am with you though, I don’t believe a word Ticketmaster has told me through this whole process.

    I better call the fuckers then… or should i?

    They were all long gone last Friday afternoon according to TM. Although TM have demonstrated so far that they have absolutely no idea how to manage a concert, maybe you should try calling them.

    but IF i call them, would they realise their mistake and take the tickets (which have already gone to my friends) away from me?

    I think i should leave it.

    No one has actually confirmed yet that a ticket has been cancelled once it has physically been in their possession. If I was in your position I wouldn’t call them though as they seem to have stuffed everything else up so far.

    I wouldn’t stress out.  Unless they call you to tell you they’re cancelled then you’ll be fine.

    I got the impression from the promoter and TM that if tickets were to be cancelled that it was done in the day or so after the pre-sale. If you have the actual tickets in your possession I wouldn’t worry.

    dont stress out about it. just do what i did.
     
    When they call you to cancel tell them you want to change the tickets to your friends name. They will want the CC details of your friend, but she gave me her direct number to call her back with. So i just rang my friend got the details then called her back.

    What were their reasons for canceling the tickets?

    i bought 6 tickets in the presale coz my friends couldnt get in fast enough with all the toolarmy wrong password bullshit.
     
    girl said you are only allowed 4 tickets per person. so i just changed two of the tickets to friends name/cc when she rang.

    Has anyone who bought tix to Melb in the public sale received theirs? I received my presale tix within a day or two. Still waiting for the tix from the public sale.

    Nope but I’m in Perth so don’t know if it takes longer. Shouldn’t take too much longer but……

    I got a lawn ticket from pre-sale and haven’t received it yet. Then paid some bullshit price on ebay for 2 seats in row L but haven’t received these yet either. All up I think I’ve dished out $900+ for Tool tix and so far have nothing.

    I would love to get my hands on the ‘power sellers’ on ebay who rigged the system and stole all the Melb tix.
