I've hear do any different things about presales but do you guys think it's better to do the presale or wait till thy go on sale to the general public to get the best seats?

there are others more experienced than me but it seems to be different per venue pre event
i was just trying for the baltimore show but kept sending them back now they won't let me look for a while. i forget how that works.  it wouldn't let me pick seats either just best available...i would say for the most part the presale yields good results but there have been some weirder shows. also the public tv seats are held or whatever so they won't be available
on rare occasion a good seat will show up last minute but that is a risk....
on the presale some of us  have done better an hour or half hour afer it starts because right away tickets get held up in the cue while people are deciding on if they want them, then they go back in after an amount of time.
its a crap shoot i guess but i am grateful for the presale!!!

well not even presale time and ticket sites have them online already. All front 4 rows gone So much for presale

The same thing happened in Baltimore. Seats are showing for 375 to 400+ within a minute of the sale opening. I already got mine from PBS. I can't handle the stress. lol

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

The Durham code that I have provided on the list is indeed the correct code. There is an error on ticketmaster's end and they are working on fixing it.

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

Ticket Master Toronto, right at 10am lots of main floor seating.. within 10 seconds the screen popped up and said lots of fans buying , we're deleting the seats you've selected and we're switching off the map and selecting for you.
They greyed out the entire floor
at that time it offered me balcony.. tired a few more times offered me Orc7 which is fairly far back.
so I've semi given up at the moment on Toronto my home town


pretty bad that Ticket Master can lock down there sales site like that.

at least I have a big road trip waiting for me to see Joe in row 4 Binghamton May 24

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

only thing i saw for that was the platinum seats
the top price otherwise is $125
i logged out and back in and it told me they have tons of fans trying to buy so they disabled the map - pick your own function

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

I called the box office but they won't open till noon.  Have a feeling the good seats will be taken by then......
So much for buying tickets at face value.....

Same here, Jane and Cathy.  I tried for Baltimore too.  Still plenty of Platinum seats in the pit area for $425 each.  I found it really difficult since the description of the tickets they gave you didn't seem to match the designations on the seating chart!   No idea where some of them were! 

One thing I learned, it's very hard to get good seats the more tickets you need.  Never thought about it before, since I always get one seat which is normally easy to get a good one, but this time I have 5 to buy and that moves you way back.  Guess I was pretty lucky to get Row J. 

Hope to see you there and finally meet!  Let me know where you end up.  Good luck everyone.

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

So disappointed there's nothing in the northwest.  I'm starting to think I need to move out east if I want to see Joe more!

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

Got in for the Tulsa, OK show and got some great seats!!  It was a bit of a hassle and didn't get the tickets I initially selected, but kept trying and was satisfied with what I got!  So glad I saw the email with the codes last night.

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

you are so right Sally about number of tickets.
i just now scored a ONE in row cc (3) and on the aisle. its on the side opposite where Joe nromally is but he is mostly center now a days anyhoo plus i might get a good view of Reese's hands...plus i would trade an aisle for three rows anyway so to me its like front row almost
i was on the fence about the whole thing, date is bad timing, money tight at the moment - owe Uncle Sam - like to get two tickets - computer not cooperating - ticketmaster being goobery - need to update flash player - all worked out in the end
now i have my security blanket but will still try for more at a later date etc maybe depending
just so glad for the Baltimore show and the presale

woohooo

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

Well, was able to get seats I believe are decent for Richmond. Pit B row BBB, but since there is no precise seating chart, who the hell knows what they really are and Baltimore was a joke. Tired of dealing with ticketmaster. We'll just go with the PBS tickets. Phil bought some for Columbus that we'll be taking 5 of his clients to 2nd row in the loge.

I would call the venue and tell them you have the presale code.


Was able to get through on the website.  Only problem was that the pre-sale code was not working.  Checked it multiple times, didn't matter, would not work.  Still able to get tickets for $149.  Probably could have saved some $$ with the code but had to make the decision fast.

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

Okay, kind of bummed. All ready to get tickets to a northwest show during the fall tour since Joe skipped us this spring, but, alas no northwest dates at all..again, bummed !

Re: Fall 2016 North American Pre-sale (+Red Rocks)

FWIW the presale code does not get you a discount in any way, just the ability to get tickets before regular sale (
