    on one hand - it does though a big wrench into the scalper business model (yes!), on the other it ties the hands of the customer a bit as well.

    It looks like tickets for the Orpheum in Phoenix go on sale in 30 minutes. Also they are $90 each.

    care to explain? we were trying for 3 tix for phoenix and bought 2 for el paso as a backup- couldn't decide at the last minute and ended up buying the tix for both shows, but i don't think we can make both since they're the same week. so i'm not looking to scalp but it would be nice if i could unload the tix we won't use at face.

    no need to unload the tickets. if you used the same credit card, or if you used 2 different ones but with the same address, better call ticketmaster because one or both of your orders will be canceled.

    hmm.. yeah, i think you are right. but just in case call ticketmaster and tell them there was a mistake or something and see if they cancel one of your orders. there's no way you can resell the tickets if you are not at the door and pick them up.

    My God, I just accidentally bought tickets for Dallas. I'm hoping and praying, against all odds, that they see it in their hearts to refund my money. Otherwise, I'm pretty much out of $200, as there's no way I can sell them to anyone the way this paperless thing is set up. I wanted to go to El Paso, but now, I'm not so sure... tre sad.

    I think I was wrong. If you bought tickets for different shows, they won't cancel your orders. it was only for more than 2 tickets for the same show.

    Cassie at Ticketmaster is my new personal hero. After being on the phone for 20 minutes, "as a one-time courtesy", she cancelled my order. Lesson learned. *whew*

    Haha, no. I was kidding. I'm not even willing to pay $42.30 for nosebleed Coldplay seats. $42.30 for good Coldplay seats, then we're talking. Or that amount for fair Tom Waits seats. But $90 is too fucking much for any act. Except Portishead or the Velvet Underground.

    yea. these prices are pretty extreme. the total on the mobile show for me was 99.50. orchestra, section F. im driving from new orleans which is close enough to not get a hotel, so maybe it evens itself out like that? i think it'll be worth it in the end.

    I think the $90 is pretty fair actually. It's hard to get Tom Waits tickets as it is. Imagine if they only sold for $40? Although it hits the wallet pretty bad, these sort of makes sure that the people who actually want to see him get to see him, at least a little bit. I mean, if you are willing to pay $90 then you probably like Tom Waits a lot. If the tickets were cheaper, you had have tons of people buying them and I'm sure a lot of the super-fans would unfortunately have to miss the show.

    The pair of shows still sold out in less than five minutes - even though they went way anti-scalper - so it sounds like they easily could've charged more.

    And/or had the shows somewhere larger... but shit, that's no good either.

    Pretty awesome setlist.

    He didn't play Earth Died Screaming or Clap Hands, at least. That would make me kick myself to kingdom come.
