Tom Petty's Highway Companion Club has worked well for me. It cost $60 to join the first time, which I did in 2014 to see TP and the Heartbreakers in Tulsa. Our seating was not that good, wife was very disappointed, it was to the side of the stage , one level up.
But I re-upped in Dec for $50 to get tickets for TP's show in OKC this month, and I'm on the fourth row from the stage , on the floor. Very happy with results.
Yeah, it seems like $60 more for tickets was a lot, but it was only $30 per ticket, and IIRC , I could buy up to four tickets.
And the tickets can only be picked up at will call on the day of the concert.
Evidently, TP uses this to identify his fans and try to get around scalpers, and get his fans the best seats. But really, if scalpers are a real concern to acts, then increasing supply by scheduling more than one night, is one answer. Paul McCartney does this, he will add another night and it really cuts the legs out from under those trying to profit on the secondary market. Garth Brooks just keeps adding shows, as each one sells out, I think he now has six nights in Kansas City. But I realize less popular acts like Joe and others, can't do that.
