Dr. John tix reduced from $64 to $19 (no refunds though)
from the inbox….
I bought my tickets last month, for a grand total of $156.20 for two tickets in Row E. Earlier this week, they started selling tickets for both shows at $19 each, which the guy at Irving told me was simply because they hadn’t sold enough tickets.
As if this wasn’t bad enough (Why do I have to pay more? Because they couldnt sell enough tickets?) for those of us who are the real fans who paid upwards of 4 times more than those who didn’t bother buying their tickets early, the geniuses over at ticketmaster are now selling the same seats for Saturday’s shows for two different prices ($64 or $19). That’s right: apparently you get to CHOOSE whether or not you want to pay a quarter of the price for your tickets.

What this means is that people who don’t look closely will buy expensive tickets thinking they are in some way BETTER than the cheap tickets, when in fact they are not. Earlier today, when I searched for $19 tickets, they were actually better seats than the tickets I was being offered for $64. They seemed to have resolved that issue and are now offering the SAME seats for either $19 or $64.
Sound normal? Not to me. I’m pissed. I’m obviously more than willing to pay the amount of money I paid, but then to have them slap me in the face with all this is just insulting. Maybe you can tell other people this is going on. – W
That does suck (unless you didn’t buy tickets yet). Dr. John is actually playing three shows at the Blender Theater in NYC this weekend, and ($19) tickets are still on sale.
