Leonard Cohen at Barclays Center in 2012 (more by Gretchen Robinette)
Tickets for the Leonard Cohen show at Radio City go on Fan Club and VIP Package presale today (1/11) at 9 AM. AmEx presale starts Monday (1/14) at 9 AM, AEG/Venue/Radio presales start Thursday (1/17) at 9 AM, and tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 18 at 9 AM. VIP Packages go on sale on 1/18 at 9 AM too.
Tickets for both BV-presented Fiona Apple shows happening in NYC, and other March shows, go on PRE-SALE today (2/23) at 10am.
UPDATE: Those sold out quick. Who got tickets? If you didn't, general sale begins Friday.
UPDATE 2: I know a lot of people are calling that presale bullshit (I tried and also couldn't pull up any, so I know how it seemed like there were no tickets),, but remember that Fiona Apple hasn't played NYC in a long time, and Bowery and Music Hall only hold around 600 people each and are way smaller venues than she can play and these shows were well publicized. Let's assume that at least 100 tickets per show are being held by Fiona and her label for friends, press, etc (some of which will probably end up being put on sale closer to the show), I can't confirm exact numbers (or any of these numbers), but it seems reasonable to believe. That's 500 tickets per show to sell, which is actually only 250 sales if everyone buys two. And even less were put on presale, so if the presale got 200 tickets per show, that's 100 sales of two tickets each. Now you have thousands of people trying to buy 200 tickets (per show) all at the same time... it sucks (every time).
UPDATE 3: Scalpers are dicks as usual.
Jay & Ye wait to receive the large bundles of money about to be thrown at them
Tickets for the previously discussed Jay-Z/Kanye West aka Watch The Throne (isn't throne a synonym for toilet?) show scheduled for September 27 & 28 at IZOD Center go on presale on Thurs 7/28 at 10:00 AM. Presale code is "WTT" for the NJ dates (probably for all of them). You can head to the WTT website for details on all cities starting at midnight tonight (7/27). General sale tickets, ranging from $55 to $178.50, hit Ticketmaster on August 8 at 10am. - BBG
As promised, the ArcadeFire.com presale started at 10am this morning. It was too much for their servers to handle though... see above screenshot. Whether or not the NYC show was or is part of that presale... is sort of in question (now that the site it back up - I don't see it listed there).
That said, the above presale is not to be confused with the presales mentioned along with the NYC date ("Tickets for the NYC show go on AmEx presale June 9th, Fanclub presale June 10th and general sale on June 12th."). June 9th and 10th are presales that came with the NYC show information... which I assume are both Ticketmaster based (but maybe not)... and which were posted by me before the whole tour announcement... which included the news of the presale that started Wednesday at 10am.
UPDATE: The above referenced the Friends and Family presale that ended Saturday morning. The password for the Fan Club presale that started at 10AM on Saturday is "jikan".
