It screams 2nd night... but instead of having to work twice as much he just doubled the ticket price! Way to go, 'ye!

Just don't cry when the audience is predominately white.

Seriously i know there are a lot of idiots on this blog making comments but if you actually pay those ebay/stubhub/craigslist prices to go to this show then you are a real dummy.
Hell if you actually go to this show you are pretty stupid but for those that still need a ticket may i suggest you just go to the garden an hour before the show and hangout as long as you can and trust me you will get a ticket outside for cheap. Scalpers own this show and there will be tons of tickets outside. Fuck if you dont care about lupe fiasco then just wait till a half hour after the show starts and you can probably get tickets for less than face.

It does not matter how much you like Kanye. (I like him.) If you're paying above face value, which was already too much, for this show, you are in for a big disappointment once you hit MSG.

Ticket prices are comparable to M.I.A. show at McCarren.
Any one have an extra ticket?

^^^^ ummm who gives a shit. You are an idiot for going

Well, I took the advice I read about on this board. I waited until the afternoon... and the Craigslist prices didn't budge. I even went to MSG & waited until after the show started for the scalpers to start dropping their prices. That didn't happen either.

That's the last fucking time I try that! Next time I'm just not going to think twice & buy tickets from Ticketmaster upon my first impulse! There will be time to rationalize later!

You must be blind like Stevie Wonder then because i just got off the phone with a friend of mine who went with his gf and bought 2 tickets on the floor for 60 bucks total. He got them at 8:30. So either you are lying or seriously blind.

You got what you deserve for going to that show.

Wow. This is the second time in a week I've been called a liar on Brooklynvegan b/c some other poster's friend told him otherwise.

I was there. I am not blind (not that these cheap tickets were in clear sight or anything). I stayed until 9pm. No one I talked to was willing to go down below face. So I just left. Good for your friends. Yes, I'm admittedly a little jealous, but I'll just try seeing him this weekend b/c I happen to be visiting in Philly.

That show was crazy. So awesome. I'm excited to see him at HOTs Summer Jam. It's gonna be a crazy show. So many big names. Learn your lessons from this show and get them tickets early!!

Posted by Bell | May 14, 2008 12:28 PM
