So yesterday Queen tickets went on sale. My son Toby is a huge fan so I decided to try and get tickets to the show for his stocking. The only problem is , being on a tight income because I'm still on LnI for my wrist, I had to 

1) wait for the mailman to bring me my check

2) look for decent price tickets.

All day starting at 10: 00 A.M. I sat and watched and looked at various ticket prices and prayed the mailman would come soon,which he didn't,nothing new where I live, But I like to hope every two weeks anyway. So I was watching this one section that was on the side and about half way through the arena, I was really happy because they were priced at $89.00 dollars a seat. Which is a price within my range.

Finally the mail man comes at his usual time of 3: 30, I look at the venue one more time and still plenty of seats in that area for 89.00 dollars. I grab the check and race to the bank and come home, all in all about an hour went past.

I sit down,log in and find the section I was looking at..... THEY ARE NOW PRICED AT $99.50 a seat!

 

WHAT THE F@$&!

HOW IN THE HELL CAN THEY JUST CHANGE THE PRICE LIKE THAT??? They weren't verified resale tickets, they were standard tickets that were being sold by TICKETBASTARD!

How can they just change the price out of the blue like that? Anyone ever hear of that before? I can see if it was tickets someone bought and are now reselling, but these weren't marked like that...…

I went ahead and contacted Brian May about this. He was very appreciative and said he would try and get to the bottom of it!! I hope he does....and I hope it's not Ticketbastard ripping them off .Even though it was only 10.50 cent hike for me.... you add that to up with the THOUSANDS of seats they probably did it to all around the US and it adds up to a few houndred thousand I'm sure!

 

 

VERY COOL...And heck of a nice guy!

I was really disappointed with how expensive the seats were in general.  I took my daughter to the show last year and had a great time but can't really justify the price.  Makes me really appreciate that Bruce doesn't lock down all the good seats with special VIP packages (I don't need a special lanyard and early entrance for an extra $200).

SO

I just went on to look at the tickets and they added an announcement when the seating chart opens up.

Thing is..... the section I was looking at wasn't in high demand that day. The seats weren't selling at the 89 dollar price, and now they're 10 dollars more! If you want seats to sell, you don't raise the price, you lower it!

Now just about every section has been raised.
