A fellow Borderer learned there was one more show after they officially ended the HOTE tour in Louisiana. It was a private concert. Sorry, I do not remember where or when. Perhaps someone can find the post. Second, we know from Bob Seger who saw Glenn after the tour and described him as "worn out" that Glenn Frey was involved in developing a Hotel California play or musical which I believe could/would have been awesome.

Sometimes ticket prices are never going to make sense. When I went to see Taylor Swift, I got a ticket for a floor seat 5 chairs away from the main catwalk for $100 a couple of days before the show when the venue box office came up with additional tickets. But the young man sitting beside me paid $600 on the secondary market. Yikes.
I have always thought it would be funny to be in the first section at a price drop. At Thompson Boling Arena..when looking at the seating chart, I remember that one section was 95.00 and the adjacent one, getting further from the stage was 65.00. Imagine the guy on the end seat, about 5 feet from you, paid 30.00 more, for essentially the same seat.

6 Reasons It's So Hard To Buy Concert Tickets

"How credit card presales, bot programs, and even artists scalping their own tickets keep you from getting seats at face value. Yep, it totally sucks."

They are trying to get us Irish into the whole VIP thing and different packages but we aren't really into it. Ed Sheeran is doing a few dates in Dublin in the summer but he refused to do presale. All tickets have gone for face value. You have your name on the ticket and have to provide ID if you bought it cash at a TM outlet. If you bought it online you will need your credit card that you booked it on. Seatwave, Platinum and Stubhub etc are not allowed carry tickets for his shows. Irish pewrople are sick of the whole reslae thing and don't buy into it as a rule. It will be interesting to see how this pans out.
Thatís great you got tickets for your daughter! I think Arrowhead Stadium holds 75,000 for football games but Iím not sure how many it will hold for the TS Show. I know from having been there years ago for football that I couldnít manage the upper levels because of mobility problems. Iím not upset about not going as it would be really hard to navigate a crowd that big. 26,000 at Sprint was hard enough and with streets being shut down for crowd control I had to walk almost 5 blocks to find a taxi. She does a great show, but it was laughable to me that she wanted to do this presale to keep tickets out of scalpers hands and then turned around and charged up to $790 to $1490 face value for lower level seats, even waaaaaaaay back.

I know for Josh Groban presells, his fan club members gets the access codes a few days in advance, and his VIP tickets include a nice dinner ahead of the show, cash bar, meet & greet photos, a brief backstage tour, and a goodie bag with seats in the first 4 or 5 rows for $500. Resells are not allowed and you have to show your ID and ticket receipt when you arrive. I didnít mind spending that much because it was a very good show and AEG did a great job of handling the VIP experience package.

The Eagles are coming to Sprint, thank goodness, and not a big stadium. But I read tickets arenít being sold through Ticketmaster, only through Sprint. And the AMEX presells can only be done online through a link AMEX sends you, and not by phone or going to the box office. This is all new to me. How do you sign up for AMEX presell alerts?

Articles like this make you not even want to go to ANY concerts. Such greedy sleazy tactics, even by the artists. The only way this will ever change is if people don't go. Refuse to pay the prices.

Well, I can't disagree. I guess it's the nature of the beast. They book large arenas and stadiums to maximize ticket sales but it's the fans who end up in faraway so-called "nosebleed" seats who are the ones paying the biggest price of all.

I know I'll be sitting in the nosebleeds section when I see them in New Orleans. For me, I refused to pay over $100 for tickets for any artists. That includes the Eagles. That's just me. I've seen some other prices for the other cities and some of them start at 90 or 100 dollars for nosebeeds. Yikes. I'm glad New Orleans is not that expensive compare to other cities they are playing.

One example of the artist that charge an arm and a leg for their tickets. Donny and Marie. Some venues were charges 100 and 200 dollars for their shows on the road. You can pay 300 dollars in Vegas and you get to meet them after the show. You don't when they are the road. I only played under a 100 for their show at a casino and I had center seats, but I was miserable the whole night because they weren't stadium seating like seats and I had a tall person in front of me. Never again will I get a seat in the center that venue. I had a better view in the nosebleeds at that same venue when I saw Peter Cetera in September.

I don't need a front row seat or seats in the center(well of course if they are cheap. LOL) to see somebody I like. Mostly everybody I see in concert are older artists who haven't put out an album in years or barely get played on the radio. They play mostly at fairs (where I can see them for free), casinos or smaller venues. We rarely get big names here in MS. You would have to drive 3 hours to see a big star.

I like smaller venues. The last big venue I went to was Don's show in Sugarland in January. I forgot how many people they hold, but Smart Financial Center was big and it was also very brand new.
