    Ventured into Ticketmaster to try my luck again, after the catastrophic Dublinfail on wednesday. Didn’t make it today either, so god knows maybe it just ain’t to be. Right now I’m busy convincing myself to take all this as a sign that we’ll get a small venue show in Norway this autumn instead.

    I signed in at 10, had my details in and hit the buy button 1t 10:02, said there was a queue and then at 10:05 I got a message saying sorry, there are 0 tickets available. What do you know they’re on fucking ebay a few minutes later for up to Β£300. Fucking disgrace.

    I found ticketmaster was shocking – only managed to get tickets through ticketweb

  8. June 19, 2009 10:10 am

    Unfortunately the ticket selling system is not geared up to discouraging ticket touts (should have been a limit of 2 / 4 tix max). Ticketmaster was selling multiples of 6 tickets – the touts went in and mass bought out the system in two minutes flat. A quick check on their sites minutes after the sell out for Edinburgh were showing multiple sales of the tickets (up to 10 tickets a pop) going for Β£99 each.

    Not a case that the fans got the tickets – the touts did. Gotta agree with heatherslalaland – it’s a fekking disgrace, but it doesnae surprise me.

    I had tickets in my basket with Ticketweb and it wouldn’t let me proceed as a system error had occured. Went to resubmit details (tickets stay in cart for 15 mins once there) the button to submit was then greyed out.

    And yeah, less said about ebay the better!!!

    There are some music shops selling tickets. I’m hoping I can get tickets in the local Aberdeen music store…but won’t hold my breath.

    Isnt the Fringe selling tiks too?
    as The Edge Festival is part of the Fringe

    • June 19, 2009 10:30 am

      Not sure. I went to the Edge Festival page and when you click on tickets it says there are no gigs announced for that date. If you look at other gigs on there, tickets are being sold through the likes of ticketmaster. I tried the Fringe page, and it will only let me add tickets to the wishlist, not buy them.

    Try

    Edinburgh fringe Box Office Booking Line: 0131 226 0000

      Cheers for that Ric!

      • June 19, 2009 10:48 am

        no worries,

        hopefully a few more peeps can get one before the touts snap them all up.

      Cheers for posting the number for everyone.

    I got mine luckily enough after losing out on Dublin a few days ago. Might be optimistic but I’m looking to swap 2 tickets for the 25th for 2 tickets to Dublin on the 27th.

  15. June 19, 2009 10:49 am

    As far as I know, Olympia holds around 1300, Corn Exchange is around 3000 maybe?

  16. June 19, 2009 11:40 am

    well i for one hope the touts get lumbered with tickets – not that i dont want the gig to be amazing, but to punish them for really ruining it for the fans! πŸ™‚

    One ad I saw on ebay was 170 notes for 2 tickets! FFS! I was going to post this number there but wasn’t sure if that would contravene the rules!

  24. nat permalink
    June 19, 2009 1:22 pm

    I would try and post it! I feel really sorry for true fans paying stupid money!

  25. June 19, 2009 1:23 pm

    I saw on Ebay Β£300 for 2 tickets, think it was some guy in the states selling them. Shocking.

    44 mins on hold but worth it. I could kiss you Ric!

  27. June 19, 2009 1:30 pm

    The problem is you get idiots like myself who must go to the show and will pay that amount.

    I went to Brixton so i shouldn’t complain really. I don’t want to pay touters prices on principle so i guess i will just have to hope they play the UK again, but i will keep an eye out for people geuninely selling their tickets because they can’t go, if anyone knows off anyone with a spare ticket…..

    i was fearing the worst as all my pals couldn’t get tickets anywhere.

    I tried Ticketscotland on Rose St and the nice guy told me to try the Fringe Office. Wandered into the Fringe Office at 1:30pm – 2 tickets just like that!

    Phoned my pal to tell his mates. Haven’t heard back but i think it’s all good news.

    woo hoooooooooooooooooooooo………….
