Hello Hello!!

Wow @ 01:59 pm

wolfp10:
As I flip through the LJ posts, I realize I am quite lucky to get my tickets. I logged onto U2.com at 9 am, reloaded the site once every minute (I hope this didn't block anyone :( ). By 10:05 I was checking out of ticketmaster with two GA seats to the May 26 Boston show.

At this point I have become real disgusted witht the scalpers who are already hawking tickets on eBay, with those who manage the preseale, and even with the band itself for letting this happen with their concert and their fans.

For those of you without tickets, I wish you the best of luck this Saturday and up to the concert you want to attend. The bitter taste in my mouth is going to take a while to wash out.

Oh I'm so jealous! Two GA tickets! I'm trying again this Sunday to get better tickets, but still what I wouldn't do to be on the floor. So close to the energy of the band!

This pissed me off, too. People who want them and would appreciate them can't have them because these tools get them and are ebaying them TEN MINUTES after the presale opens, for hundreds, nearly a thousand dollars. I wish there was something to stop them. Anything.

This is how I feel when I think about these scalpers:

Ah capitalism! You can't stop it and honestly, who can stop them. I don't like it either because it prevents those of us who truly love the band and believe in what the band talks about from seeing them! But no, you're never gonna stop people from trying to make a buck!
