Totally off topic but the last time I was at the MSG for the Phoenix show, there was this amazingly annoying couple who were not only talking during the whole show but were talking about TMI info. The guy kept asking her "Do you like my seven and a half inches? Do you like my seven and a half inches? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool.

Today you should've seen me and Mousy today at school today. I got cocked on a pint of Blackberry brandy, ate some THC on the bus. We were fucked. This teacher Mr. Rivera goes, "What's wrong with you Delaney?" I go, "I'm totally fucked, maaaaan!" Everybody laughed like a bastard. Oh man, you should see this song I'm listenin' to. It's called "Don't Bogart That Joint, My Friend." I think it's by a group called...

If she liked his 7.5 inches, the story would have gone like this.

Something is seriously fucked here. I made my "request" at exactly 11:00:07, and IMMEDIATELY got a 1 minute wait page, then the no tix available page. BULLSHIT. If it was a busy on sale there would have been a 10 min wait, than smaller and smaller, etc. It takles time for people to buy tix, its not physically possible for 15,000 tix to be sold in 7 seconds.

There is absolutely no way all tix went on sale. Either TM glitched out or scalpers got everything (and I mean even more than usual) before this sale. Like someone said earlier, a short queue followed by getting the sold out message does not make sense.

they shoulda done what radiohead did and just release floor tickets through their own website at random intervals throughout the night.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2011 11:23 AM

They should add a second show. Demand is obviously there, unless tickets were never released for the general sale which seems plausible.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2011 11:24 AM

Will you people fucking relax. It is obvious this was a presold to scalpers deal. BUT that is good. There will be so many(GA included) tickets available the week/day of show you will be able to get tickets for under face if you are smart and know what you are doing.

Just calm down and wait till April. Don't be impulsive and pay their jacked up prices now. Patience is rewarded at moments like this.

Also to the perfect 2 idiots screaming about their rich parents and gloating they got Section 12. Section 12 SUCKS!!! It is all the way in the back you fucking dummies. Sound is even worse and have fun watching the video screens all night to see.

I actually have a gold amex mainly for ticketmaster, and today it definitely paid off.

I kept getting errors and TM fuckups for the first couple of minutes after tix went on sale.

Didn't get the GA floor but I pulled up two in section 5 and grabbed them. Crunch crunch ERROR. resubmit, get to the next phase, crunch crunch ERROR. Finally it went through and I got my confirmation email.

Nervewracking. Ticketmaster should be better equipped for crazy high demand shows by now and not crashing all the time.

even a request for one obstructed view ticket is denied.

I couldn't get ANY tickets, let alone GA or anything. And I never was held in the queue for longer than 10 seconds. I hope there will be some explanation soon.

MSG is booked the Friday and Sunday before and after, so I can't really see another show going in MSG.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2011 11:27 AM

What I think happened is it sold out in like 5 seconds. The system says "oops, sold out" and doesn't enable the drop down menus. Then at 11:05 it goes into "okay, sold out show, but now you can try" mode. I had a definite refresh pause in the first few seconds after 11.

Posted by Cuse | February 11, 2011 11:27 AM

@11:22 Yep, i have the .gov clock up and was on a PC and a macbook pro at 11:00:02. The PC queued for 1 minute and the mac showed the dropdowns at 11:08. This is insane.

I wish they had done what Thom Yorke's solo act did: ticketless sales. That was the most painless ticket buying process ever. Cuts out the scalpers.

Everyone write nasty emails,letters, and phone calls to ticketmaster executives. Remember, don't yell at the customer service agent on the phone. Its not their fault they get paid by those corrupt dingbats.

It's pretty apparent Ticketmaster let the scalpers in first, and they took everything. Looks like I need to save up.

Does anyone know if LCD SS is selling tix in all seats? Plenty of shows they dont sell anything behind the stage.

I think they should just do as Prince/U2 (and others) does and make sure to take advantage of every seat.

Rich kids who got tickets are now selling them for $40k on stub hub.

Posted by Anonymous | February 11, 2011 11:38 AM

People who complain about scalpers in this case are completely clueless. Thanks to every dumbass wanting to be a scalper these days I get tickets to 90% of the shows I go to for less than face value. (Most of them usually get stuck with the tickets and settle for less than what they paid close to the show.)

What you see on Stubhub is a small fraction of the tickets that were available to public. The show selling out fast has very little to do with scalpers and has everything to do with the hype/popularity of the show. So you couldn't get tickets to one show. Boo hoo! There are many better ones in NYC every day and I wouldn't be able to afford seeing as many as I do without scalpers.

You want to put the blame for your disappointment on someone, fine, but you're only fooling yourselves. Try to get creative instead and you can get into pretty much any show you want.

Ticketmaster is ruining the concert industry. They are a corrupt, monopolistic entity that needs to be taken down. Plain and simple. I think its time for a serious crackdown on their power. Their ridiculous fees are bad enough (seriously, $14 on a $45 ticket, are you fucking kidding me?), but their complete grip on the venues and artists has hurt the music industry in horrible ways. DOWN WITH TICKETMASTER!!! Time for this monopoly to fall.

I'm not a LCD fan, but as someone who buys tickets from TM all the time (and a lot of them at MSG) this doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

Ticketmaster is a fucking racket. The day any criminal charges are brought against them would be a day to celebrate.
