K. I feel stupid for asking this, but

I bought tickets on Ebay, and we got them in the mail today, and it says in the fine print on the ticket that the tickets are no good if resold. Does this mean they won't let us into the concert because our name doesn't match the one on the tickets? Help!

There shouldn't be a problem. I bought one of those email tickets from a friend. It worked although it had her name on it instead of mine. They don't check for the names at the door. Can you imagine how time consuming that would be? As long as the ticket scans in you should be fine. :)

That's what you get for buying from scalpers anyway

I wanted to get decent tickets...all I had were ones behind the stage. Everything's sold out. I didn't want to, but what choice did I have?

Not much of one, that's for sure. You should be fine. There are too many people for id's to be checked.

Unfortunately, a large percentage of good tickets seem to go to scalpers. :(

For instance, my hubby & I will be seeing U2 from *behind* the stage in the nosebleed section. *sigh*

Not everyone selling on eBay is a scalper. I got a ticket for the first Seattle show for below face value (it's because it was a single ticket, I'm sure), and a Vancouver single GA ticket for not much above face value.

I read about these. The only reason you would have a problem is if they are fake. If you go to the show and someone else has hard tickets for the same seats, & an argument ensues over who has legitimate tickets.. well, you WILL be required to show ID to match the name on the tickets. & if you can't prove your name, which obviously you wouldn't be able to.. well, they'll make you leave.

This is why I hope everyone out there will always ask if they are ETICKETS (the ones with people's names on them), or actual tickets if you are planning on buying them on eBay. ETickets are usually legitimate, but they are still so risky. Did the seller mention that these were ETickets and not hard tickets in the auction? Seller SHOULD have. You have right to complain to him & maybe leave him a negative feedback if he didn't.

I just bought an e-ticket on eBay and am a little nervous about it. The guy has a good record, however, and the only other items he's selling is a second ticket to a different show. So I don't think I've been scanned. Keeping fingers crossed all the same!
