I've timed it on several occasions and it is around a 3 minute delay. By the time you dial, they already have a winner.
These shows sell out instantly.
You can log into ticketmaster right when it goes on sale and click buy and it will sell out as you are searching for tickets.
Maybe this year will be a little easier because of the new measures they have instituted.
They are as follows.
You can only buy tickets online, no outlets or phones this year.
You can only buy tickets if you are a street team member.
They will be sending out the passwords on December 4th to street team members.
They go on sale December 6th.
So that only gives scalpers/brokers/etc. only a couple of days to sell the tickets.
Plus they will have to create all these street team accounts.
If you aren't a validated street team member and in the greater LA area your ticket order will be cancelled.
Plus since you can't phone in or line up...maybe this will help the average person gets tickets.
We shall see..
Here is the official notice:
IMPORTANT KROQ ALMOST ACOUSTIC CHRISTMAS INFO:
Tickets to both nights of KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas will go on sale Thursday, December 6th. Night 1 will go on sale at 5PM PST and night 2 will go on sale the same night, but one hour later, at 6PM PST.
Stay with me, because this year we're doing 2 things differently.
1) Tickets are being sold ON-LINE only.
2) You must be a KROQ Street Team member to buy them.
It's free to sign up at KROQ.com and if you get through to Ticketmaster to buy tickets, you will need a password that will only be sent to Street Team Members. Without the password, no tickets. If you get through and have the password, we'll see you on the 8th or 9th!
Don't trust your drug-addled minds to remember. Sign up, and make sure your info is up to date right now. Plus, this Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:15 AM, we'll draw from the list of Street Team Members and call them at home with free tickets for KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas. And we'll give away tickets like that to different shows all next year! And if you hear heavy breathing in the middle of the night, that's probably us too

Actually Tessa, I do not work for KROQ so there is on guarantee I will get tickets. I do not have a credit card, but I am a street team member. SInce you clicked on my Myspace page, feel free to send me a friend request. I don't bite.
