Indy added a pit as well 136.5 plus fees
They also added the choice of blinks new album or lil Wayne’s new album
They did this thing exactly. If you bought a seated pit ticket, it is now a GA pit ticket
Wow, that's bullshit. So glad I went with 100 level instead of orchestra.
Hmm, I was given this selection the day I bought my tickets last Friday
I splurged on the VIP meet and greet only to find out you most likely cant bring anything to get signed or even your cellphone in. Pretty disappointing
The cell phone thing seems pretty bizarre, where did you hear this?
Blink street team and others who have done VIP in the past. I'm curious how many VIPs they sell for each show. I couldn't believe the NJ one wasnt sold out when I bought 5 hours after on sale
That’s absolute garbage that you can’t get anything signed.
How long is their soundcheck usually? And do they play full songs?
I did their soundcheck VIP in 2016, and they did 2 full songs. I believe neither of them ended up in the actual set that night, which was nice.
On the previous tours they only let the $440 package get things signed, but since that's not even a choice this time who knows what they're gonna do
There are so many tickets available still for the Houston show. I'm pretty shocked too. Pit is even still available.
I’m not surprised there are a lot of tickets left for some dates. Both artists are past their prime and no one is really buying tickets just to see Neck Deep. Maybe if Tom was still in the band that would help a little but the reality is Blink (and Lil Wayne) just don’t have the long lasting relevancy/legacy that other bands like, say, Radiohead or even Green Day have.
Blink always sells VERY well here which is what shocks me a little bit
Blink’s last record sold extremely well and “Bored to Death” got major airplay. The only reason this tour isn’t selling well is because of the prices, and that’s ignoring the fact that the tickets have only been on sale a little over a week.
After I saw Blink with Skiba once I didn’t need to see it again. Will I do $20 for lawn? Sure. But I have no urge to pay big money for a ticket again unless Tom is there.
yeah philly has been switched to Pit standing room only, which I prefer
The prices of these shows, and many others is insane. I can only assume that the massive increase in ticket prices over recent years is due to the decline in revenue from music sales so bands have to make money from alternative revenue sources. I understand this but at such high price points you out price a lot of casual fans who wouldn’t necessarily rush out to buy tickets but rather have the thinking of “I wouldn’t mind going to see them live” and then see the ticket prices and can’t justify it.
I wonder what makes them more money
I know the way Taylor Swift and other top artists price their tickets - they don't need to sell out to generate some of the highest grossing tours of all time.
The dates that I've checked aren't selling at all. Seems to have backfired but I guess they could always offer deals closer to the date. I'm a huge fan and wasn't going to go at all until they switched to GA Floors.
Groupon. $20 or under,
Latest info shows this is selling SUPER poorly. So many bad decisions involved in the rollout / pricing for this, and the dumb backlash from blink fans re: Wayne couldn’t have helped.
I look forward to buying a seat / floor ticket for $20 bucks and gift my lawn ticket.
If the availability of tickets for the Philly show is any indication, this will be a disaster
There’s a twitter account that has been keeping track of other dates as well and some of them are even worse.
I think the seats were to be expected based on price, but the fact that most shows have pit tickets still available is really telling. Even around neighborhoods pit tickets sold out basically instantly and most of these GA Pits aren’t super big to begin with.
Most shows are not selling. Still a lot of time for the later dates (like the Philly show isn't until mid-September)...but um, here's the first date of the tour...less than a month from now:
