Posted in music | tour dates on April 25, 2014

amFB

American Football just sold out their Webster Hall show (10/11) instantly but have added a second date happening a day earlier (10/10) at the same venue and tickets are already on sale.

Ticketweb can't handle it and is taking forever to load though, anyone getting through?

The shows are part of American Football's reunion, which also includes Champaign, IL's Pygmalion Festival. Tickets for that one are on sale now.

Tickets for the Mineral reunion shows went on sale today too. Those are still available but Ticketmaster is saying "not many left."

You can also still get tickets to see American Football member Mike Kinsella behind the kit of his other reunited band Owls (with his brother Tim and two other fellow ex-Cap'n Jazz members) when their tour with Hop Along and Glocca Morra hits NYC's Bowery Ballroom on July 11.

TICKETWEB IS THE WORST FUCKING WEBSITE

Not getting anywhere. Their mandatory survey isn't helping things move.

makes me miss Ticketmaster on sales

i would think the mandatory survey also prevents scalper BOTS from being able to complete the purchaser easily.

I'm embarrassed for the Ticketweb folks

Timed out 5 times...pathetic. Too bad I don't have all day to spend sitting here waiting for it to happen.

Eh, I don't care enough about American Football to keep trying.

im not worried, ticketweb told me im their favorite person in line

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2014 12:38 PM

I called ticketweb and they said that it should be fixed within the next hour or so but until then it isn't worth it to "wait in line" on the site

I don't know which is worse, this or Chain of Strength?

This is probably the only day that I'm thankful for Bowery shows going through Ticketmaster.

Just got through with no problems. And seems to still not be sold out, somehow.

if you buy 12 tickets to sell on StubHub you're a fucking scumbag and should be ashamed of bastardizing live music.

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2014 12:58 PM

looks like they are adding a 3rd mineral show for sunday onsale at 3pm.

bypass the waiting time by getting three of your best bros in the same room, cocks out, cocks touching, cry on the cocks, then piss on each other's faces. just got 4 tickets that way for the 2nd show. it works!

sample lyrics from American Football:

let's just forget
everything said
and everything we did
best friends, better halves, goodbyes

and the autumn night
when we realized
we were falling out of love


...nuff said.

isnt it more emo to sit at home depressed that you got sold out of american football tickets than actually seeing them?

Posted by Anonymous | April 25, 2014 1:28 PM

This hype is similar to what happened when NMH announced the initial tour dates, then everyone started crapping on them for saturating the market

I was at TicketWeb at 12:00. At 12:03, it was sold out supposedly. I refreshed a billion times and at 12:15, I was able to see the two tickets in my cart! And I got to Submit Payment. So I click it, right? And I see that it's trying to go through, and it's slow, and I'm like it's ok, it's just slow. THEN it times out.

What. The. Hell. I didn't get charged, thankfully, but what a tease.

Do you like American Football?

I like all kinds of football.

For CityFest 2014, tickets will be put on sale via scavenger hunt.

First hint: I am a stroller "mechanic" in BK and I'm cute.

I love when people go nuts over a borderline B-grade band having a reunion. 90% of you would not have accepted money to go to this show 10 years ago; no way in hell.

I was listening to Radio 4 ten years ago.

90% of the people buying tickets weren't around to see them the first time. Bunch of posers up in here.
