good news Alan

wonder if they will sell sbds to this tour?

it amazed me that it wasn't thought of for the cowboy tour...then again Bob isn't Phil & plugged into the maximize profits at all costs algorithm...more of a haphazard free spirit...and that's ok...

and we are not paying the Jill or baby Levon ticket tax to go see Bobby :idea:
I think the people promoting DeadCo and the Cowboy Tour (may be the same person) are old style promoters who are used to performers like John Mayer and emphasize extracting income from people via VIP and marketing and are not used to or ignore newer mechanisms for generating income like Video streams and the sales of show recordings. This changed over time with DeadCo and may very well with Bob shows.


TAPER tickets being available is only good news if tapers actually get them.

I did not mean that the prices changed between verified sale and the LN sale. The tickets I was presented with as "available", however, skewed towards the more expensive... In looking for Orchestra seats, I was presented with a small number that were in the < $100 range and quite a few that were "platinum" tickets for $125+. When I got in for the LN presale, tickets < $100 were a lot more plentiful.

Nothing like a little marketing. The tickets for Syracuse during the verified fan thing were $125-399 before fees. I got in to day and was able to get a 5th row RC ticket, including fees, for $96, right in the middle of the CID $399 tickets.


And there is a TAPER option but no sign anyone was able to get one. They did this for the cowboy tour - what a poor way to sell TAPER tickets... :roll:
I got my tickets via verified fan for Portland and they were $65/ticket (plus fees). That's exactly what they were today for the venue presale (I checked since I had that option available, too). The same ticket level will be sold for that price tomorrow when general public sales are open.

I will say, back when D&C tix went on sale for Autzen, I remember getting my tickets via verified fan presale for standard pricing but people were all up in arms about "verified fan" tickets being on sale for like $300+. My wife even pulled up a google search and showed me what she was looking at. Ultimately, it ended up being a resale site that was totally official looking and offered to sell tickets. My first clue it was bunk? They had ticket sales going on before a single ticket had gone on sale anywhere else, including the actual verified fan sales that I got mine through. I think the site was maybe even an actual Ticketmaster site, making it seem even more official.
TM has their own scalping site and the confusion comes because they treat those tickets like they are normal ... ah but they are anything but normal, they're scalped. Scalpers will populate that scalping site with tickets before they even have them in hand. Effing shady if you ask me
Bingo. Totally shady and it confuses and angers people about ticket prices. In short, Ticketmaster still sucks. Shocker.

Did the verifier verify you are a verified fan? :think
