"I think I want to cry and die all the weeknd tickets are sold out" - Tasama TAH-SA-MA
Weeknd tickets being scalped via Instagram...
Not since... Kraftwerk, have we seen a ticket as in demand as the one that will get you into one of the just-announced Weeknd shows. Many people that got shut out are very upset, and some (like us right now in this post), are writing about it.
The San Francisco Weekly points out that one alleged woman is allegedly offering sex for Weeknd tickets on Craigslist, though some quick searching reveals that the artful naked picture posted with the ad belongs to "Julia S From FEMJOY" (who happens to be posing in the Tyrolese Alps) (NSFW). Of course it is possible that Julia S is a huge Weeknd fan currently residing in or near San Francisco. Or maybe the offer is real, but just not the picture.
Meanwhile the Weeknd plays his/their first show Sunday at Coachella (which starts streaming online for those of us not there, momentarily)
