There's still TONS of tickets left for the Pittsburgh date.
And the show is like a year away. There's are many reasons why you announce these so early, and that's the biggest one.
Wouldn’t it be more wise to not announce it this early so you force people to make a decision quicker and thus likely sell more tickets? I imagine a lot of people now are holding off because they have no idea what their plans will be in a year and if they will be around or not to attend the show.
Very few acts can sell 40,000 – 50,000 tickets in one city in a few months. You need a long lead time or you're going to have to slash prices just to get respectable crowds.
Two of the three bands will have new albums before the tour, building momentum.
Na, they definitely need time just like @cricketandclover said above. Also, the amount of people who are going to get/give these as a Christmas present is probably pretty high too.
Holy cow, just looked at the Denver show and tons of tickets available. Face value pit is gone, and the back half of the stadium (the cheaper seats) are mostly gone, but sections on the floor, and the lower bowl on the sides, have tons of full rows still available. And SO many Platinum/VIP tickets available.
They'll definitely need time to move these tickets, and probably will need to do some discounting. I got my pit ticket for that show easy.
What are these teaser videos that Live Nation keeps posting for the NYC show with specific locations? They giving away tickets at those spots?
Yeah, I think that's all it is.
Where are they posting these
In the FB event page. I assume it's a way to ensure the shitty seats have bodies in them.
Just checked up on tickets for the LA date. $30 tickets shot up yo $80. Some tickets close to the stage are up to the $1000 range. Oof
With all the Groupons for all the shows (Except Boston), is there even a chance that Fenway ends up having them?
Always a chance!
I'm not really a sports guy. But are there ever Groupon deals for Red Sox games? It may be the ticketing system they use.
Good question on Groupon on Redsox games. I dont know. When I Saw all the groupons for the shows elsewhere, I figured fenway too... But no. Perhaps ticketing, perhaps small location, dont know.
I just searched and came up with zero results for Red Sox games on Groupon. Must be something with the ticketing. But who knows what might happen. The concert is still, what? 10 months away?
I hear you.... Its just that all the other cities had their groupons listed already, so Im on the assumption, for now, that Fenway won't.
More GA Pit Tickets added in some cities, although be warned, they're $325 in Minneapolis (they were $170 when I got mine)
Yikes. That’s about the cost of a three day festival
All the 3 day festivals I've been to have been cheaper than the initial ticket price for ga. That's what made this a hard sell for me.
Still hoping for Groupon for Boston.
I can't recall ever seeing a Fenway concert get put on Groupon, though I don't know that their ticketing platform strictly prohibits it. They use tickets.com, so it's not like it's some proprietary marketplace.
I've been trying to find out how exactly Fenway concerts are handled, but haven't had much luck. I assumed it worked similarly to the way Gillette Stadium does, which outsources its booking to a couple of different promotion agencies, but I've been told that isn't the case and that the Red Sox organization is, at least in part, responsible. With that being said, they have absolutely no control or power over tickets, and don't even get to recoup a small batch for themselves. I have a good enough relationship with this person to trust that they're telling me the truth. When I came up short getting anything I was willing to pay big bucks for, I reached out and asked if they had anything internally that I could buy. They offered me some seats in the owner's boxes, which are the only thing set aside for the Red Sox. They were at the ~$125 face price and wouldn't exactly be a good view for a concert.
Thanks.... it's too bad. There were plenty of groupons for Xfinity center.
Boston and Chicago are sold out according to Green Day on Facebook but that’s a lie there’s still tixs left for Chicago
Any news of 2nd dates in places?
