Thread: AXS ticketing is the worst site ever, welcome to the waiting room

    I concede my point about AXS being better than Ticketmaster for scalpers. It might be worse for scalpers, but it's also a heck of a lot worse for me and most other boardies who've perfected the art of ticket buying. There is no art anymore with AXS. Also, all of my other numerous points still remain valid.

    Hahaha that's absolutely hilarious.

    I bought tickets for 2 shows today through Ticketmaster-Pixies @ the El Rey and AFI at the Fonda.
    It was very easy to buy tickets!
    Much better than AXS, and somewhat better than the shows with the "Livenation" interface.

    The AXS app doesn't tell you if you got FLOOR or BALC tickets when you try to buy for the Fonda. It allows you to pick if you use the dropdown, but if you use"Best Available", the order summary only shows "GA". The only time this is really a problem is when you're trying to buy for a hot show and trying to go thru the process asap. Unfortunately you have no idea what you pull until after your order has been processed. Would be nice to actually know what you're buying before hitting "Process Order". I'm sure there's folks on here that would throw back a balcony ticket if that's all that was available.

    tl;dr, I ended up with Balcony tix for Miike Snow because AXS sucks.

    As bad as AXS is, it's even more frustrating to try to get a ticket on Ticketmaster and being told there are no more tickets available from the site but then them showing you resell tickets at 3x the price right below it. They're promoting their own scalping to their own events.

    AXS doesn't show it right there, but they often link right to the StubHub page for the event, since StubHub is their "trusted 3rd party reseller".

    Fuck off AEG! I refuse to use AXS...

    AEG Live to Acquire Bowery Presents

    Another independent promoter gets scooped up.


    Following some three years of speculation that a deal is in the works, sources have confirmed to Billboard that global promoter AEG Live is in final negotiations to acquire successful New York-based independent promoter Bowery Presents. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    The development significantly impacts not only the New York concert scene but brings national implications as another successful promoter leaves the ranks of independents. Founded in 1993, Bowery has been a viable third promoter option in New York (with AEG and Live Nation), and has formed strong ties with artists, managers, and agents in moving acts up the venue ladder.

    Bowery owns, operates or has exclusives with New York's 575-capacity Bowery Ballroom, the 250-cap Mercury Lounge in New York, the 3,000-cap Terminal 5, the 250-cap Rough Trade, and Brooklyn's 550-cap Music Hall of Williamsburg. Bowery also presents shows at New York's Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center, Brooklyn Bowl, and the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, N.Y.

    Additionally, Bowery has aggressively expanded its operations in recent years, moving into Albany, N.Y., Boston (where it presents shows at Great Scott, The Royale and The Sinclair), Philadelphia (Union Transfer and other venues), and at the State Theatre in Portland, Me. Bowery has also dove into the deep South, with its Bowery South division promoting shows across Atlanta, Birmingham, Ala., and New Orleans.

    Bowery will be the second notable New York independent to be bought out this year. Earlier this month, news came that Live Nation had acquired a majority stake in Founders Entertainment, producers of Governors Ball on Randall's Island. New York and the Northeastern U.S. have been one of the most competitive territories between Live Nation and AEG Live, and the latter's move with Bowery is a critical play outside the festival space. Though digitally-savvy, Bowery in many ways operates as an old-school promoter, focusing less on forging tour deals or getting into bidding wars with established acts and more on building loyalty with developing bands by taking risks early in their careers at the small venue level, hopefully building a significant number of these acts to the arena level.

    An AEG/Bowery deal could be announced as early as next week, sources say. Representatives from AEG Live and Bowery Presents declined to respond to comment. Bowery partners include former Live Nation New York president Jim Glancy, who moved to Bowery in 2004; and John Moore, co-founder of Bowery with Michael Swier, who Glancy and Moore bought out several years ago.

    Why would it change anything. And it was probably part of the deal. If the venues felt they could be better served by ticketfly, then AEG compromised for em. The Roxy for example is still sold on Ticketfly, and its a Goldenvoice/AEG venue. Dont know why you think they won some big battle against ''the man''. Whenever that contract runs out, they most likely switch to AXS. Thats why it took a while for the venues in L.A. to switch, they had to have their current contract with Ticketmaster end so they could transition.
