HOLY SERVICE CHARGE BATMAN! Two Belle and Sebastian Tickets $103 after SC! Is there any place to get them SC free?

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 10:03 AM

$50 for B&S. Fuck you ticketmaster. Does the Williamsburg Waterfront have a box office?

normally i don't complain about tm service charge but paying $100/ticket for something that should only cost $75/ticket is a little outrageous

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 10:13 AM

if only bowery presents and their slightly lower service fees could produce nyc b&s shows. they are always AEG for some reason.

normally i do complain about service charges but its belle and sebastian. so, fuck it.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 10:36 AM

A fucking $10 service charge? No thank you. Fuck Ticketmaster.

THERE'S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY.

For a second there I though KISS was opening up for Belle ANd Sebastian. I got exited, as that would be the ultimate bill. BOy With The Arab Strap and The Demon in one night.

Posted by Heavy Street | June 3, 2010 10:37 AM

it's been over 4 years since the last belle & sebastian show. i think we can all fork up $50 to see them. especially since we all saw them for free the last time.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 10:49 AM

Not everyone saw them free last time. $40 Nokia Theater...

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 10:50 AM

I would have no problem if the ticket was $50 and I could buy it directly from the venue. What's disgusting is Ticketmaster charging 27% of face value.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 10:53 AM

i've never been to a show at the waterfront - is there a place to sit outside the venue where you can put down a blanket and still hear the show (like at summerstage or prospect park bandshell)?

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 10:53 AM

I don't think anyone has seen a show there? Isn't this the first season? BOH is the first show, after then everyone should know the details!

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 10:57 AM

waterfront is the area next to the east river state park at kent and N 7th, they had a series of free shows there last summer (there's loads of pictures of it on bv), it's mostly a concrete standing area with grassy bits around the perimeter that you can sit on, but you can't see the stage if you sit down

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 11:08 AM

why didn't you go to the free battery park show too? it was awesome. as were both nokia shows.

I stopped listening to Belle & Sebastian when they started playing venues bigger than Mozart's Bathtub

And that's called a call back

are ticketmaster fees a new thing ?

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 11:43 AM

11:43...not having a box office to buy service charge free tickets is not acceptable..if they are available at Nokia SC free then it should be known..there is no information confirming that fact!

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 11:48 AM

If you were SO INTERESTED in getting no-fee tickets, then you would know that tickets are available sans service fee for ALL NYC AEG shows at the Nokia Theater box office.

Personally, I don't want to go there and I also wanted to make sure I got tickets... so I ponied up the extra $20 in fees.

Also... these tickets won't be available until tomorrow at Nokia. This is only the internet presale.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 11:55 AM

I bit the bullet but the $28 extra on 2 tickets is bonkers!

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 12:00 PM

B/S have a bunch of open dates - My guess is that they will add a date at the Wellmont. Fingers crossed...

And yes, they were amazing at the Nokia Theatre. New Pornographers opened!

Anyone remember when they played Across the Narrows - what a dreadful idea for a concert...

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 12:02 PM

sept 30 at night on the waterfront? brrr

Actually, if you buy one ticket, at $54.25 for what is supposedly a $37.50 ticket, the extra charges come to an extra 44%. That is just fucking outrageous, even for ticketmaster. There oughta be a law.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 12:12 PM

late september should be nice...less chance of thunderstorms and overall summer stickiness....

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 12:22 PM

12:12 that is 9 days in to Autumn...I am sure you will survive!

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 12:43 PM

$1 goes to the venue facility fee and around $4 goes to process the order (no matter how many tickets) so the true TM fee is $10..

still it does get far away from $37.50...but the band doesn't see any money from the fees either... its a bummer but people like to order tickets in their underwear with the credit card & ticketmaster knows this.. don't see it changing anytime soon.... there will be no fee tickets at Nokia in times square tomorrow but like 1% of people will utilize that option..

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 12:50 PM

Is it fair to say that KISS is always spelled in caps?

>>
I've heard that the layout will be different this year with the stage facing the water... my guess is that if they are having big paid shows there that things will have to be a lot different from the way it is was set up last year for Jelly shows.... much bigger stage, much better / pro sound system... more food vendors...etc , etc...lets hope.. one thing for sure the B & S show will likely be one of the last shows of the season so all kinks should be way worked out by then.


Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 1:13 PM

thanks for the info 1:13. it was a nice effect having the Manhattan skyline behind the stage last year, but I guess they have their reasons. isn't there going to be a jelly series there this summer too?

Also, ten bucks still seems unusually high as a tm fee. for example, it's $5.85 for the Grizzly Bear show on Gov Island for a similarly priced ticket.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 1:21 PM

Those service fees are a bit high. Do you have any idea how much hummus you could buy for that kind of money?!

I think it has to do with the sound heading towards the water instead of towards the city / apartments.. less noise complaints, etc

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 1:44 PM

lso, ten bucks still seems unusually high as a tm fee. for example, it's $5.85 for the Grizzly Bear show on Gov Island for a similarly priced ticket.

>

GB base price is $33 ($5 less than B & S)

theres a $5 facility fee attached to those tickets plus $5.85 TM fee

so $10.85 there

on the B & S ticket theres a $1 facility fee plus $10.85 TM fee so only $1 more in total fees.... not sure why this all is but it sort of comes out the same.
The big difference is the processing charge. that seems lower for Govenors island vs Waterfront and not sure why...

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 2:00 PM

The $5 facility fee for GB is supposedly for the ferry ride. But I guess you're right and it's all the same in the end!

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 2:04 PM

you whiny bastards will be able to get your B&S tickets for $40 even at Other Music starting tomorrow at noon.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 2:07 PM

Gee, I never would have guessed that Belle and Sebastian's core fan base would be such a bunch of whiny sissies.

Posted by astute observer | June 3, 2010 2:16 PM

a $35 concert in nyc has cost $50 for the past 3 years..i don't think much has changed since the last time b&s were around.

grizzly bear
pavement
what are some of them other $35 concerts we got?

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 2:18 PM

$50+ for B&S at an outside venue, in late September is risky business. $100+ for 2 tix is a gamble anyway you cut it. Rain, cold, and the expense, etc. No thanks. And $50+ for Arcade Fire at MSG too?

Too bad these "huge-venue" shows are so much. $100 for 2 tickets to most shows is a lot. There's just no getting around it.

Nokia show WAS awesome. At least that place had superb sound so paying the price was well worth it! Outside shows and MSG always sound dicey...Good luck.

Posted by heading to MHOW or Bowery instead! | June 3, 2010 2:39 PM

2:16... they aren't. these idiots on BV are casual fans, at best. they'll go to the show and complain that they aren't playing enough songs off of "sinister". real B&S fans don't bitch about ticket prices like that. we're too excited to bitch.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 2:50 PM

how cold does it really get in late sept in nyc ? 55 degrees ? bring a sweater or light jacket... jeez... they play baseball outside until late october (if mets or yanks are in world series!) temperature changes a lot in mid oct but late sept should be nice...

..rain can happen anytime really...

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 3:21 PM

it COULD be really warm on sept. 30.

remember that Arcade Fire on Randall's Island in October a couple of years ago? (yeah.. the one that cost $40) wasn't the weather PERFECT for that?

or... it COULD be really cold on sept. 30. we really don't know. but I'm more than willing to bundle up, put on a poncho, whatever... for B&S. the battery park show was nearly rained out.

For some of us; its not too bad to spend $50 when you are seeing both Belle and Sebastian AND Teenage Fanclub.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2010 8:26 PM

The whole 'true fans don't care how expensive it is' argument is totally lame and annoyingly self-righteous. Sure, I'm willing to pay 50 bucks or whatever since Belle & Sebastian so rarely come to the States, but fifty bucks IS a lot of money for a show no matter how you look at it. ESPECIALLY since such a large percentage of that price is wrapped up in fees and isn't going to the artists.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
