  1. Re: JAY Z's 2014 Made In America Festival ~ LOS ANGELES EDITION!

    Where do you see these prices? I'm going to Philly for the Saturday shows and looking for cheaper tix. LA seemed to have higher prices on StubHub relative to Phil. Looks like the VIP option has...

    Re: Lollapalooza 2014

    Prices were right around face value for 3 day wristbands ($250). Sunday was under face (<$100), Saturday above. I got a 3 day a few days before the fest for $240.

    Re: Buyer Beware

    StubHub is legit. You give a credit card when selling in case you screw people over. I imagine this is user error if the wristband looks just like the other one.
