(and honestly, do you expect many people to post here admitting that they subsidize their Buffett fix by reselling their tickets?) That's why I did a poll...the votes are anonymous (although I wouldn't be surprised if phjim could look them up if he chose to do so). And if people want to post and sh...

These registered people, depending on the venue they are corporate and are confirmed sells, in which the venue sells to their sponsors first, ie. box seats etc. Many large venues have corps that re sell tickets into these brokers. I have purchased pre-sale tickets in the past for Chicago and at an ...

Non-local phone numbers will work but when I investigated going to an outlet in another state, they said no dice. I was going to be on the road between Indy and Cincy when Tampa tix went on sale last fall. I was told area outlets only cover venues in a roughly 200 mile radius. So be sure to check wi...

Unfortunately I am going to have a small caravan of my own and this could be tough to manuever. I am gathering people from the south west and driving up. I'm not sure making the Holiday Inn is an option. Did the Holiday Inn have parties Friday night too? I may sneak up to that if so. Yep...and Mac ...

Do you buy (extra) Buffett tickets to re-sell?

We know ticket buying time is a frenzy. And since we have to plan so far ahead getting numbers right can sometimes be a challenge...but I'm curious how people generally approach this. When TM puts Buffett tickets on sale, if you are lucky enough to get through, do you buy just what you need or do yo...

The one good thing about high ticket prices in pavillion is scalpers are not doing as well. Bingo! I think that's the main reason JB raised ticket prices last year...not just because he was greedy but because he needed to take some of the profits and motivation to buy up tickets away from the scalp...

Hey, where is the quality line in that graph? There isn't one. Doesn't that count? It's in there. :wink: The graph shows what people are willing to pay for a given product (e.g. a Buffett show). So "quality" or "value" is a part of the decision each of us makes...whether we'll pay $126 (or more) to...

I think that the "demand" for these concerts is somewhat manufactured. Last year there were ton of tickets available on ebay/stubhub/BN for or below cost, and people were dumping them days before the concerts. To some degree you're right.

could it be that the M'ville in Orlando is looking for business? he's always talking about the food and the atmosphere etc. since he's there live, that makes sense, but imho you still gotta get the big stuff right.....

Lands End, realize this subject has been beaten to death...usually several times each season. :roll: :roll: To me the best example that JB's tickets are not overpriced is the two Gillette stadium shows officially sold out in one hour. That's 120,000+ tickets. Cheaper JB tickets just won't happen unl...
