Did anyone else strike out this morning???

Post by Pirate Lookin' at 40 »

Wow. Just found out from my source that was going to buy our Cincy tickets that they struck out. They had two computers going with 6 browsers open trying to get through - with no luck. I don't feel so bad about it myself, because I really hate riverbend, but this was going to be my daughters first Buffett show. I hate it for her. Anyone have a guess what the brokers will be asking for lawn seats?

How did everyone else do? Hope you had better luck than we did...

I'm in Australia and stayed up until well after 2 AM local time trying to get tickets to Cincy. Struck out for the third year in a row. Unless some more tickets are released, I'll have to give in to the sonofabitchin' brokers again.

Last year lawn seats were going for a mimimum of $70 from 'reliable' brokers, and reserved seating was closer to $200 for rear seats. Horrible.
These moments we're left with, may we always remember, these moments are shared by few...

Shutout here too

Post by TimInOhio »

I had 2 PCs going, with 2 browsers each. On one browser, the time started around 2 minutes, then climbed to more than 15 minutes. All of my browsers at one time or another said more than 15 minutes. I got completely shutout this year for the first time in many many years.

the usual suspects (Ticketsnow.com, stubhub.com, etc.) will have lawn seats for Riverbend anywhere from $75 - $100+ each. Never understood the bozos that try to sell lawn tickets for some absurd amount when there are plenty to be had for much less - I guess it has something to do with the bozos who get fooled into paying it. :wink: as the tv commercial says, "Don't be THAT guy"

Anyway, I'm curious as to why you "hate Riverbend" :-?

I've been to several concerts there and compared to other venues, I think it's a great place. And Buffett at Riverbend is very special 8)
you can't lay on the beach and drink rum all day if you don't start in the morning 8)

I thought you could kill them, you just had to be at least 500 feet from the venue. :pirate:
