    Tried the verified presale link again, got taken back to the Ticketmaster site and then it it worked lol. Got 2 GA tickets for Hampton Coliseum right in front of the stage. $86 each (plus $18.86 in damn fees), but fuck it I’m in. They had a ton of presale tickets available in almost every section too FYI.

    As someone who doesn't use ticket services, why are all the seats locked and why do I need an offer code for pre-sales?

    My co-worker came in huge today, him and his friend got pre-sales, I did not. We have 6 tickets.

    $246 for my pair

    $100 for this.

    Start your concert experience in the Citi Grand Salle inside The Met Philadelphia. Skip the lines and gain early entry 30 minutes prior to the general public. Inside, you can enjoy appetizers through the start of the show, specialty
    cocktails and access to private restrooms. The Citi Grand Salle Lounge includes a signature cocktail or well drink, early access to the Citi Grand Salle Lounge, private restrooms, private bar, and the option to reserve seating.

    Parking passes as well, that part of Philly is a fucking shit show to park.

    Finally this is what my coworker said, "well it blocks u from adding anything more once u purchase anything.... so I refreshed the window and logged in again and it allows me to add stuff"

    So try that if you didn't have any luck.

    The presale registration make sense and i'm glad they give motivated fans a chance to get picked early on, but dang - the process of selecting individual seats could be improved.

    I like the idea of picking my seats in theory, but the way it works when the flood gates open is that everyone is clicking into individual sections and seats and its a gamble if someone already picked out those two random seats. I would have appreciated just getting "best seat available" in that price tier or section and they slot them on the backend, because with this type of interface, I got/get about 5x "sorry someone else has selected these seats already, please try again". As that's happening, the good seats are getting sold while I just try to get any 2 seats on the floor. /rant.

    maybe they should do it automatically right at the beginning when the rush is over - switch to pick your own seat interface.

    What a roller coaster. Thought I fucked up because I was logged in my phone and laptop both. It wouldn't let me in.

    Finally got in around 10:10 using an incognito browser. Got club level just not as close as I would have liked. $74 + $26 = $100 each.

    I wanted pit, but couldn't get them to be added to my cart (error 007). I switched browsers and I could add tickets but by then Pit was gone and I tried 5 times for floor seats. Section B is a great place to me. Looks like all available floor seats are gone. Surely more to be released in the coming days for fellow brethren.

    Separate topic, but TM is moving away from printed tickets and a physical ticket altogether. They want tickets they can destroy/erase remotely. They will couch these advancements as ease of use/prevent fraud, but I should be able to buy a ticket that I can hold and transfer. The transfer part is where they get you, making ticketing systems that prevent transfer/resale. And with that said, I'm not a scalper (I haven't flipped tickets in about 8 years; maybe did it 5 times in my life) but just averse to digital drm style tickets. Happened to me with MLB's ticketing system where I bought valid tickets, were transferred to me in the MLB app, then later struck down. Its messy and it doesn't protect the users - it protects the ticket issuers.

    for this tour, it says they will open up ticket transfer later, after "review" completed after 'general sale'. What does review mean exactly? I don't know but they get to define what is fraudulent or they think is fraudulent.

    Also worth mentioning, with e-tickets, the only place you can sell might be their own platform. More transactions/fees to them.

    After (electronic) ticket transfer is open, you should be able to transfer normally. But i'm not sure when that will be relative to their unstated timeline and completion of 'general sale'.

    I actually want to try again on the various presales to get Pit tickets, but i'm spooked that they won't let me sell & transfer my floor seats I already have.

    I'd say mostly making sure you didn't go over the 6 ticket limit in various forms.
