how can they suck if they haven't put out any new music yet? Oh thats right...you're a hipster

Talk about boring and irrelevant. The band that destroyed indie rock forever. Maybe the Arcade Fire and the Shins should go create a "Buddy Holly Memorial Airplane Tour."

Wrong. Just got 2 at 12:04. I know captchas are a lot of work but y'all need to try more than three times.

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 12:06 PM

tried a lot more than 3 times and nothing. hope radiohead doesn't go like this

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 12:07 PM

So... did anyone else have trouble getting a ticket to this? I refreshed my ticketmaster browser at 12 pm EXACTLY (when the tickets went on sale) AND it was sold out already. Unless there was a presale I didn't know about, this doesn't seem right.

STUPID TICKETMASTER!

Posted by Kathleen | September 21, 2011 12:08 PM

Bullshit, its not even worth getting your hopes up.. sames gonna happen to Radiohead fo sho

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 12:11 PM

yup, same here... tried about 15x, too.

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 12:11 PM

Want to complain about not being able to get tickets literally seconds after they went on sale?

Let's bombard ticketmaster.com with complaints.

Here's the email that was given to me by someone at Ticketmaster's customer support line:
customer_support@ticketmaster.com

Posted by Kathleen | September 21, 2011 12:39 PM

I tried several time righ at 12 pm. My guess is they had a pre-sale

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 1:03 PM

I sent TM an email, cause Im pissed, and have nothing else to do with my time. Oh life...

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 1:21 PM

I logged on at exactly noon and had to try 7 times before I finally got a ticket at 12:04. Guess the servers were just jammed and I finally snuck in.
