Ticketbastard
    #2678304 - 05/14/04 04:05 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Tickets (Primus)
FULL PRICE ADULT US $35.25 x 2
Total Convenience Charge(s) US $14.50

Order Processing Charge(s) US $4.55
Standard Mail No Charge

TOTAL CHARGES US $89.55


This is so fucking wrong. I wouldn't mind paying PRIMUS directly $90 for 2 tickets. But Ticketbastard is making a killing off of the band and my love for them. SOOO terrible.

Why the hell do these assholes control most of the tickets? Why can't we get them directly from the band, thus ensuring that the money goes to whom it should?

And how the HELL do these dicks justify an additional $19.05 for two tickets? "Convenience charge and "Order Processing" charge? Give me a break. The site is frickin automated!

This is true crime. But I missed Primus when they came through Phoenix so I'm not missing them again. Watch, the show probably won't even sell out and I'll have spent the Ticketbastard rape fees for nothing. But I'll be in Seattle on 6/2 looking for a place for when I move there this summer and I AINT MISSIN' THIS SHOW!

Yeah, the best thing is when bands have mail order, you can cheat Ticketmaster out of their share that way!

But I'm sure the show will bne worth it, regardless... just sucks that the mula doesn't go directly to suport the music.

yeah, mail order is great, straigth through the bands. but if you can't do that you gotta go through ticketbasterd...but you can also scalp for tickets which can be easy, depends who your are seeign.

Primus sells them through music today why the hell didn't you get them earlier and avoid them fucks? I do almost always unless you know you figure out you can actually make it and it's to late to get them thru there. That shit doesn't last long and I understand it then, you need to apply to primus's mailing list if you don't know what I'm talking about.... But your goint to see a bad show man fuck the money ! ! ! Have fun!

Dammit, yeah I shoudla checked out Primus' presale or whatever.  I aslo talked to my friend in SEA who could have got them at the box office.  It was a bad call, but I just dodn't want to risk it selling out.  But like you said, fuck it, it'll be a killer show!  They're playing Frizzle Fry front to back, right?

I saw Oysterhead on Oregon.  It was great to see Stew Copeland and Claypool on stage. There were a shitload of wookies tokin' kind!  I'm not the hugest phan of Anastasio though :shocked: mainly because i don't really dig his singing.

String Cheese Incident is currently suing Ticket Master over this very issue and the fact the ticket master is slowly lowering the number of tickets the can sell directly to their fans. I think Pearl Jam tried to do the same thing in the mid 90s. And yes Oysterhead did rawk....anyone got a picture of that guitar Trey had with the antlers and the therimen on it?

looks somewhat different than i remember, for some reason i was thinking the anters came out of the fret board side of the body....though I guess that would be kind of in the way....
