- Tickets to a concert
I attempted to get concerts tickets for my daughter and I for group called BTS but failed – I know what you’re think haha!. Of course there are tickets on the resale sites going at silly prices – eg a £160 ticket is over £900. That in itself is another story I know…anyway, does anyone have any contacts that could get me access to the concert?! I’m happy to wait for the scalper prices to come down but ideally want to pay face value! TIA!Posted 1 year agofatoldgitMember
Not much help for this tour but I would suggest signing up to the mailing list so you get a shout at pre sales for future tours.
Im assuming they have such a thing, of course, if not then not much you can do.
and a + 1 for twickets, although it only seems to work if the artists insist that is the only resale route allowedPosted 1 year agoCountZeroMember
£160 isn’t bad considering what other artists charge!
Are you out of your tiny little mind? 😳 £75 is expensive, Bands like the Stones charge something like £140, I baulked at paying £100 for front stalls seats for King Crimson at the Palladium, although I did pay £145 for a ticket to see Kate Bush, because that will likely never be repeated, and it was an extraordinary experience, an entire theatrical performance rather than a concert. Average gig tickets are between £20 and £50, Elbow charged £33 for their last O2 show in London, fourth time I’ve seen them there, and their tickets are always the same price. Tickets to see Belly in Bristol this week were £22. Last time Tom Waites played the U.K., tickets were £75, about ten years ago, and I hesitated about the price, by which time they’d sold out. Bugger! He who snoozes, loses, but I’m reluctant to pay more than that for anyone, with very, very few exceptions.Posted 1 year agoseosamh77Subscriber
I think when you like something you get it, a bit like a bike haha!
I think you are deluding yourself and also contributing to the ticket pricing problem.
They can only charge that cause fools are willing to buy it! It’s kinda how capitalism works! 😆
Personally, I doubt mind touts, it’s the fools that buy them that annoy me!Posted 1 year ago

actually i was tempted to see D’Angelo this weekend but didn’t fancy paying £40-odd.
Then he cancelled the tour! Ha! In your face, ticketmaster!!!!!1111Posted 1 year agoconvertSubscriber
They’ve never been to the uk and it’s unlikely they’ll be back anytime soon.
I googled. Are we seeing them never returning as a bad thing?
They are a boy band so I’m assuming most fans will be teenage girls. How many teenagers will be buying £160 tickets using their own money. Surely it’s mainly mums and dads shelling out to keep the peace.Posted 1 year ago
You’re right, anything for peace and quiet! I think several fans are in their 20’s so will get their own.
I’ll just sit it out and hope for the best, I am not foolish enough to buy from a tout but yes, I’m a fool for wanting to pay the face value but like I said, it is what it isPosted 1 year agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
My son got his tickets in the rush on 1st June, we had four computers lined up across ours and the two next door neighbours’ wifi, with two mobiles on 4G as well, even then we seemed well down the choice of tickets, most of the better blocks were long gone by the time we got on. His were the cheapest at £66.50 plus stupid fees.
Utterly ridiculous, but the band are huge and have a very limited shelf life, apparently they are getting to the age where they can’t delay their compulsory military service in S. Korea and when that kicks in, the band will be done. (Just checked, some or all will be in service from 2022-2029 if they all delay until last minute.)
I think my first gigs were around £1.50-£3. Rock Garden, Teesside Poly, Town Hall Crypt. Jumpers for Goalposts, isn’t it, wasn’t it?Posted 1 year ago
