Re: 3 Kings Pre-Sale Codes August 2015

I never received any email regarding dates and codes. It's weird some emails I receive and others I don't. Never makes any sense. Did see Eric's Street Team announcement on facebook and then looked at ticketmaster and discovered when the fan presale was. It feels you have to sometimes be a detective. Scalpers seem to have it all figured out, though, since very few good seats were available. And incredibly frustrating and disheartening that at a few of the venues such as Camden, NJ and Saratoga, NY the first 10 rows or so were going for $325 - $395. There was no way to get those seats at a lesser value. Those Hammersmith prices look like a bargain when standard prices here for the best seats are now close to $400 once fees are included. It's been a rather frustrating day to say the least.

Agree Natasha very tiring these days to get good Joe seats. I heard from someone that one person bought most if the first 14 rows at one show. Gee I thought there was a minimum. It is clear what his plans are for those seats. This all stinks

Re: 3 Kings Pre-Sale Codes August 2015

One way that might stop scalpers would be to make all seats in the first ten or so rows only available at will-call (I believe this was done at Red Rocks).  Tom Petty has been doing that for years for his fanclub presales and it seemed to work well. I was one of the lucky ones today, but as far as I am concerned it WAS just luck.  It is getting so stressful trying to get good seats these days (we always worked and hoped for this but we are the victims of our success I guess).

p.s. my email letting me know codes and such arrived after 1pm - long after the on sale time of 10am - thank goodness for this place.

Re: 3 Kings Pre-Sale Codes August 2015

I just got my ticket for the Holmdel, NJ show. Finally I won't have to drive 3 hours to see a Joe show! Sec 102, Row M. Good enough for me. This is a great venue. Being basically outside, sound quality is stellar.

Re: 3 Kings Pre-Sale Codes August 2015

Citi Card Pre-sale (Wed 2/5 10am) was even tougher than yesterday's Fan sale ... at least in Camden, NJ 

(Live Nation did post up a few more pairs of Official Platinum's .. this time in Row 2 Pit - $365 ea, with some Row 3's still available.)

I wish I had those codes. It looks like they released more seats so I was able to get row X, but it's the center section. George will be here from Amsterdam and I want to share this experience with him. I'm getting too old for all this worry. lol

Sorry Cathy ... norton beat me to it.  The Citi code is the first 6 digits of your Card (if u have it with Citi).  I'm am not sure if they then match it to the CCard # or type of Card u use to purchase the tickets. (I would imagine.)

To be safe ... norton ... can u post the rest of your number?  (Hope those Official Platinum tks are still available big_smile !!)


PS ... the same exact seats were coming up today for the "Fan Club" or "Citi" Pre-sale.

Re: 3 Kings Pre-Sale Codes August 2015

Roadcase, just to give you something to play with, it is some combination of 0 through 9 for each one. You'll get it eventually.

From my days when I had to run credit cards for people purchasing things, I think many Citi cards start with 5424.

I didn't find any difference today when I tried the Citi vs Fan Club approach to seats either. Saratoga seems unwilling to release anything in the middle downstairs (unless of course they were "prepurchased" and not released) other than the Platinums for $375 or $275 or $235

Re: 3 Kings Pre-Sale Codes August 2015

It would probably take knocking over a few of them but might I suggest convenience store robberies? The inflationary curve for "Platinum" seats is off the charts. Pure greed. I suggest monitoring the sites to see if any of these go unsold and show up in inventory as we get closer to show time.

I was going for Cuyahoga Falls first, but when there wasn't any close ones (to my standards) left, I went for the Dayton ones. big_smile

Re: 3 Kings Pre-Sale Codes August 2015

It's getting to the point of caving to the resellers for great seats since the chance of a great seat in presale are slim to nil. I just checked and great row 6 center here are only $30 more than the row 16 side I settled for after wasting hours waiting for the presale to open and seeing a huge pileup. I dropped $400 in billable time for that? hmm

The LiveNation and Facebook Pre-sales today (Friday 2/6 10am) didn't open up anything new.  Nothing in the top $ tier ... only sides - mid rear (for Camden, NJ)  Ebay not showing much in the Center at this point either (Camden) ... guess all will be revealed tomorrow. smile


Edit:  But the Hub ... (a sub of ebay I still believe) is loading up with good seats down front by the hour.  :fp

Just another sign Joe has made it ... very frustrating ... but congrats!
