I got all excited over this and even got in the queue,and then realized 5 things:
1.It's not Coachella,and probably not as fun.
2.I don't live in Chicago and so it's not as easy to get to as Coachella.
3.If I go to anything in Grant Park this year,it'll be Taste Of Chicago.
4.If Daft Punk does play like daftpunkradiohead says,they'll also be at Berkeley,which would be way better.
5.I can always get tickets from Delta on Ebay later.

Due to an extremely high volume of ticket purchases you have been redirected to our waiting room server. The server automatically refreshes this display. If you decide to refresh or open multiple windows, you may be further delayed.

Please have patience, we want you to get tickets to your favorite show; you will be given priority for next availability.

Why on earth would you want to go to that overpriced crappy foodfest over Lollapalooza??? Sure, it's just as swelteringly hot and corporate-sponsored, but trust me: the Taste sucks balls. Don't waste your time.

The 3,000 3-day souvenir passes sold out in about 12 minutes! The stars aligned for about 1,500 successful fans - but don't hate them. It was their day. We appreciate your effort and loyalty, and we will give you lots of other chances to win stuff and get great deals.


Lollapalooza tickets go on sale April 3 at Early-Bird pricing - about a buck a band. That's your reward for planning ahead and trusting that the lineup is even more brain-rupturing than last year. Tickets will never be cheaper and they'll go fast!

I waited on the phone for about 30 to 35 miniutes & got through. Your going to have to endure the same fucking song playing over & over for about 100 times before you get through. I got mine at about 2:40 p.m. Ohio time. The operator said they're still available but going fast & of course won't last very much longer. The phone is yr best bet. Keep calling til you get the prompt. I tried both the phone & online. I never did get through online. The number I used is 512-389-0315 keep calling until you get through thats all I can suggest.

A man who posts over 1,500 times certainly has wayyyyyyy too much time on his hands. Good for you bud and you plethora of tickets. Go do something productive with your time, like change your lame ass myspace, ***. You are a loser. Take your tickets and go bloooooooow yourself. How dem apples taste, Jack?

And I'm Delta, not Jack.

Don't be pissed because your sorry ass found yourself sweating out some pre-sale tickets, when I had them well secured before you even knew a pre-sale was taking place.

Run along now.
