15x FACE!!

Presale was a total joke.

Fred Armisen is funnier

yea...tried for a $150 and nothing...but plenty shitty seats for $750

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 9:30 AM

considering everything will resell for 15x face, there are no shitty seats. they should've priced all these tickets higher (i.e. no $150 seats)

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 9:37 AM

I'm not seeing any seats at all... I've been trying since 9am.

do. not. want.

This is a concert for rich people who don't usually go to concerts.

No luck at all. Not sure where you are seeing even 750s for sale. I tried since 9 on the dot and best available always came back empty.

oh and stones are playing, it's a radius clause thing

What is the password @10.07? it seems to be locked

@9:49 - yes this is a concert for rich people to raise money to support Sandy victims (though probably 30% will actually get to those in need).

Its these rich people's only way to give - though its sad that they spent more on hotel rooms during Sandy instead.

These prices aren't that bad considering the lineup, I was expecting much higher (like nothing under $500, nothing decent under $1500). Any single one of these artists would charge half of these prices for a solo show (i.e. Kanye is playing Atlantic City later this month for $300/ticket).

It's a great cause, but I'd rather load up a van with goodies and bring it right to Staten Island or Rockaway myself. Probably more effective.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 10:21 AM

I'd pay that much if the Black Keys were playing.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 10:29 AM

I'm just amazed that there are that many people with that much money to blow. Eh, what do I know... I'm just a middle class shmuck. Glad it's going towards a good cause...

You mean people who arent hummus eating poor stinky hipsters read this site?

@1030 you do realize this is manhattan, right?

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 10:42 AM

10:30AM, that was very hard to read. Granted, the people who have that kind of money - for the most part - work very long hours, which you probably do not do yourself. Everything is relative.

"10:30AM, that was very hard to read. Granted, the people who have that kind of money - for the most part - work very long hours, which you probably do not do yourself. Everything is relative."

Yeah, RIGHT. By the time you get to those kind of pay-days, you're most likely not working hardcore hours. Talk to any CEO/CFO, do they stay past 5-6?

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 10:47 AM

yeah most CEO/CFO stay way past 5-6. What lousy company do you work for?

Ticketmaster is an embarrassment.

^What do you expect for a $20 service charge? Customer service, a nice expierence?!

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:09 PM

on sale on the app, sold out.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:10 PM

Someone bought out the arena.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:10 PM

I commented at 10:30.
I work ridiculous hours. Nights and weekends, too. I also make a decent living, but I can't justify spending 750 on a night out (and I wouldn't be going by myself, so thats really 1500 on a night out). I don't even think that people who make over two hundred a year can justify spending that kind of money on a night out...
As for CEOs/CFOs, they work the same ridiculous hours as me. They don't stop working. Twenty-four by seven. Constantly watching emails, taking business calls all the time. If they are not, they are probably not going to be in that position for long...

How do you fuck up on a benefit show?

I pulled up a single Sec E Row 4 $2500 bones

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:14 PM

easily pulled three $250 tickets on the Ticketmaster app. My computer doesn't even show past the Chase presale still.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:15 PM

2500 for back floors? Helllll no.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:16 PM

@12:13, don't be upset. Watching it on tv, you will have a better view and better sound than anyone actually at the show other than the people shelling out 2500 for the good seats

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:17 PM

If I was somebody who spent 2500 and ended up with mid-back floors, I'd be pissed.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:20 PM

Ha ha..I just tried for giggles

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:25 PM

Pull 225 Row 3 and it was 500 bucks a seat. There were probably only a few rows of 250 and 150 seats. Oh well. Didn't have the cash this time around.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:37 PM

Good to know that you can still get some seats in Section 100 for $16,900

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 12:40 PM

the only tix that seemed like a pretty good deal were those lower level 100s for $750 - you could pick up row 5 through 7 in the 100s for 750, and that was a good deal.

or first row for $2500 but those don't even exist outside of industry folk

Is there a broadcast date? TV or online?

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 1:10 PM

AMC is showing it live. I was surprised that they got the event.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 1:28 PM

This is either going to go on all night, or the sets will be so short. Either way, free on tv is the way to go.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 1:33 PM

gonna go all night, endless roster. they're gonna keep adding names up until the date, will be the biggest show since live aid. that's all i'm sayin.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 1:56 PM

why pay to see this live in terrible seats when the entire show will be broadcast live for free?

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 2:07 PM

That's what I'm sayin, Anonymous 2:07.
I could deal with 200-300 per ticket, but that won't event get you in the door at this point. And even if I could get seats for that much, I wouldn't spend it on crappy seats.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 2:14 PM

Dave Grohl is billed second second after Bon Jovi. That tells me all I need to know.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 2:27 PM

i definitely wouldn't go if you can only afford the 150/250/500 seats. but you could get some pretty good seats for 750.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 2:36 PM

AMC is owned by cablevision, which owns MSG....I think

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 3:03 PM

This isn;t really a good concert experience. Basically if you are there you will be witnessing the taping of a television special.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 4:29 PM

Are tix tax deductible?

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 5:23 PM

2:27, I doubt that is the order of the billing. I think it's just listed that way. There's no way Bruce or Macca would allow Bon Jovi to be billed higher.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 6:35 PM

just got a 150 dollar ticket

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 9:20 PM

They added Coldplay and Eric Clapton.

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 10:32 PM

6:35. they would allow it for charity
