A long overdue Hello again! Why I've been gone from this site for so long, I have no idea
Or excuse!
I need to look up the wonderful couple in
Miramar beach that I dearly miss!

Anyways. Not trying to rage because my wife
And I just got shut out of the Red Rocks
On sale.

If anyone finds two extra they'd sell us,
Please let send me a PM.
We have a log cabin in the mountains And
Would graciously host burgers and margaritas
Fireside in October!

The idea of stubhub and other sites makes me
Sick right now!!!

Long overdue hello back! :)

Keep trying. It gave us both "no results", then a pair came up! AXS also has a feature that you can buy for friends, and they have 48 hours to pay. After that, the tickets would be available again.

Thanks.

Yeah, I keep trying.

I know we should be thankful he's finally
Returning to Colorado at all.....
But......red Rocks in October?!?
We should expect temps in the 50's and rain.
Red Rocks season used to end after the first week in September.
Not anymore. Hit and miss weather after that.
For those going, I hope it's sunny and hot!!
I know I'll be coming to the free tailgate.
I'm still checking and will continue to do so.

Out of curiosity, what time did you all enter
The "waiting room" for tickets?
I was there right at the jump.
Still got nothing.

Yes, keep trying!

I also think the # of tickets you want and the pricing tier you want has an effect. Once I committed to only pricing Tier 1, I got tickets right away. I was in the waiting room right at the start and then took about 20 minutes before I had the chance to purchase. Had to keep at it for another 10 or so before I actually got tickets.

The most frustrating part is on my confirmation screen after I bought tickets, my row said row 41 should be in pricing tier 2, but I paid pricing tier 1. Out of curiosity, I went back in for more tickets and the rows had been adjusted. Kinda shady...and it's a lot of $$ to swallow, but I'm happy we're going. It will be my son's first show, so I'm super psyched that it gets to be at RR.

The "Waiting Room" opened up at about 9:30. I got the tickets at 10:36, after being told "No Results" three times.

I was in the waiting room at about 11:30 eastern time. When the store, or whatever they call it, opened for ticket sales, it was 13 minutes before my turn to buy came. Pulled up a single in row 20.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

My dad and I will be there from Pittsburgh! We do an annual father-daughter show at different venues each year and, thankfully, I was slow in getting tickets to a venue this year. Then when this date popped up, I realized we couldn't miss this chance.

But yes, AXS was really strange with getting tickets today... I got "No Results" probably 15 times before 2 tickets finally popped up. Can't wait!

I too was waiting for the tickets to pop up after someone bought them and then they didn't clear the credit card. 8)
