A Perfect Circle ticket sales wrap-up

Tickets for the November 2010 A Perfect Circle West Coast tour went on sale over the last 24 hours, and as expected there have been a few successes, as well as some failures.  The venues for all shows are quite small, and as a result getting tickets was hard work, but it appears to me that the majority of those who put in some time planning their attack managed to get tickets.

Still, there will be plenty of you who didn’t get them, and while I can’t help with tickets myself, I can offer the services of the Fourtheye forum to assist in your hunt.  MAGNUS has taken the liberty of starting a ticket trading forum, and I suggest you all use it.

Let’s all try and take this like adults and keep the grumbling to a minimum.  The venues were small, in some cases under 1000 seats, so as a result getting tickets were always going to be tough. Take it like a man/woman.  We all know scalpers suck, so posts like “goddamn scalpers lets kill them all” are unnecessary and won’t change anything.

I was at ticket master at 9 AM and by ten had scored to tickets to Sunday night at the show box (emotive). While I am very grateful to have the honor to see them for the first time, this is not my favorite album and I may consider a trade for another night at the show box. If interested let me know. Thanks so much and happy hunting everyone.

it was a stressful, scramble for sure. i was locked and loaded on friday at 10, had my mom in Utah ready too. she scored night one, i scored night 2. i went back in and went after night 3 for the hell of it, and got it too. they sold out in minutes, and now they are on line for 1000’s of dollars, so i feel very fortunate. i do feel very bad for anyone who tried and were unsuccessful though. and i feel bad for anyone not in these 5 cities that would have loved to attend. but… Read more »

Ebay sales have been pretty reasonable so far,at least for Sat Vegas. There have been 3 auctions that have ended so far and no pair has went for over 170! Don’t be fooled by all of the brokers and their Buy It Now prices, search for auctions only and you may be able to find yourselves some affordable tickets. Personally I dont mind paying an extra 50 bucks for a pair of seats to these incredible shows!

The tickets sold out instantly and are now being sold on ebay for thousands. Sure, APC doesn’t have enough of a following anymore to do a real tour.

They should have played the Fox in Oakland.
Between 3 of us we got 1 ticket. Score!

Respect to Hellboy for wanting to keep bitching to a minimum, but either San Fran was starving for APC or something was amiss because I too got totally shut out and I hit refresh *right* at 10:00am. So did a friend of mine, and no dice. I’m calling shenanigans on Live Nation.

I managed to snag a couple tickets for the mer de nom show. Driving to Seattle through the mountains from Calgary will add nicely to the experience of it all for my wife and I.
I still can’t believe I managed to get two, blows my mind.
Anyway, if anyone is interested in having a beer or two with a couple Newfoundlanders just let me know.

good spot, like you know.. front row perhaps… Have to skip the tit bar as
my wife will shoot me in the face! Plus we run the risk of being robbed there.

hotel with the 3 of us would not be too much cash. considering savings on parking, gas, and ferries for you. We should look at different options. also, i live in Bothell, which is about 20 minutes from the box without traffic. i have a guest room where you and your sis could stay if decided the hotel was too much. you are certainly welcome. but it would be fun just to be downtown all weekend for the shows. anyway, give me a buzz at seanvhalas@live.com. and hopefully nobody sells my email address.
