"Tickets did go on sale at the pre-sale link b/c it now says "No Inventory Currently Available".Comments like that yesterday illustrated the confusion surrounding how to get tickets for the show The National are playing at BAM on May 15th, but Beggars, Bowery Presents & the band's original instructions all confirm that, despite what someone at BAM may have said, tickets do go on general same today at 10am (and appear to be on sale as of 9am for BAM members). Yesterday, as advertised, was just the presale.
If you try to purchase via BAM's website, you get the following message: "Although tickets are on sale, this performance of The National is currently not available online. Please contact BAM Ticket Services"
I talked to someone in the ticket office who said tickets did go on sale via BAM's website this morning and are sold out, but more tickets may become available & to check back" [Brett]
