Huge scam.  Funny how scalpers are able to have bots that fly through the process and grab everything despite definitely being bots.  At the least TM gets to sell tickets twice - the cynic in me says it's a cartel with full TM participation.
Also thinking that we who went into grab Atlanta tickets got a bit fortunate as the Oils likely weren't on the radar for high demand tickets.  Evidently they're on the radar now.
Take care.

My bewilderment exactly. What a weird little adventure it was this morning getting tickets. And your accounting of Stubhub BS just now confirms the rat I was smelling while buying.

I guess 15 years (since the last time I cared so much about getting concert tickets and back then, guess who for!) has brought some changes.

I know it's baffling to me.  How did they snap up so many so fast?  I had to go through those stupid robot pictures numerous times before getting two tickets way up in the mezzanine.

That's pretty disgusting! No wonder I couldn't get loge tickets - there are only 6 rows of them to begin with. I don't know how they do it, considering all these I'm not a robot pictures you have to mark....

I know a lot of you may belong to the Powderworkers FB page, but if not wanted to share this unbelievable info.
The Wiltern only holds 1,850.

"Just looked at StubHub as of 1:30pm PST for the Los Angeles show at The Wiltern...There are 232 floor tickets, 91 loge tickets, and 96 Mezzanine tickets available from $76-$200 per ticket. That is 419 tickets just from the allocated presale tickets. This scalping is getting so ridiculous. There really needs to be a fix of the whole system."
