    I thought something was interesting about an upcoming show. Hence I posted it in the upcoming shows thread.
    And I asked why you found it interesting.

    You post saying scalpers are selling a bunch of tickets then say "who cares about this shitty band anyway?"

    Which makes me wonder, naturally, why you care?

    I like you, I'm just genuinely curious.

    I don't care, I just found it interesting. I dislike Alt-J, but I know they've been winning all this acclaim (except from pitchfork). When I saw what I thought was 40% of tickets to one of their shows on stubhub, it piqued my interest. Especially since some people claim scalpers never get more than 10-15% of tickets to a show. Also made me think that perhaps these pre-coachella shows at the Observatory should have been done differently. All the Goldenvoice shows have a delivery delay, and all the Glasshouse shows are will-call only. Perhaps the Observatory should have put one of these measures in place to deter scalpers. Less a matter of caring, more of being surprised/interested. You can say being interested is the same as caring, and if you do then fine, I care in that sense. I'm not here to argue about semantics.

    Cap for The main room at The Observatory is just under 1000. Youve obviously never been there. The claim isnt that scalpers only get 10 - 15%, its that usually thats what they end up with on average. Because when its an arena show, the likelihood of the ticket brokers having the best seats is all but assured. Im sure the market oversaturation is one of those times they bet on the wrong horse. Itll drop to face soon enough.

    I haven't been there. I googled the observatory capacity and the first result said 550.
    http://encore.orangecounty.com/2012/...rom-the-ashes/
    And yea I agree prices will go down. I do think the observatory should have put a delivery delay or will call only as a deterrent though. Both the 2chainz show and AltJ sold out quickly, and now have tons of scalped tickets online.

    Doesn't it say that the premium packages come with premium seating? That should answer the question right there.

    Do we in fact know that the Tom Petty Fonda shows are not going to be fully seated?

    Not for sure, we should find out tomorrow, but I'd be surprised if so given the map that they show on the tickets page right now:

    Also I have never seen a floor map like that for the Fonda before so I assume those "premium seats" are the reserved balcony.

    Okay, yeah, that is a very specific seating chart. They almost never have reserved seating up there. Old people would definitely pay more to have an assigned seat from the balcony vs. being in a standing room only packed floor.

    The only fully seated show I have ever been to at the Fonda was the last Tindersticks show there. It was still GA, but seats (chairs) were on the floor as well. Probably shouldn't completely rule out a fully reserved Fonda for these shows, but the GA Floor on the current TM seating chart is pretty blaring.

    While the specific observation is related to a band he may not care about. The fact is secondary ticket market sales is an issue that impacts more than just that one show... so I'd think it's still worthwhile data for that subject, regardless of the quality of the band.

    I'm 35, far from old, and would pay more for a reserved seat.

    True. Lack of SF date = Treasure Island (http://www.treasureislandfestival.com/) which takes place Oct 19-20. But I remember the line-up for that festival being terrible last year...

    Treasure Island has had some fantastic lineups in the past. the last couple of years left something to be desired. who knows how this year will turn out. Atoms for Peace is certainly a good start.
