    Same here, i won 3 gigs, thinking : i'm lucky if I get one and go with my wife, i could even offer a pair of tickets to my little bro and thinking it was unlikely i won the 3! I can't even offer them! 
    I understand there are rules, but not being able to sell them at face value to people who have entered the draw and lost, I don't see the point. The tickets are charged anyway, either from Member A who won, or would have been charged to B if he/she had won. So, where's the issue with refunding or giving them to next in line with one consent?  
    You can sell them at face value.

    Yes. You need to pick them up in person with your photo ID. They set the Will Call times and email that in advance. They cut down on scalpers this way. 

    ** I should clarify that the individual who purchased the tickets has to be the one to pick up the tickets. (Whoever the 10c member is.) And yes, they check IDs.

    I understand the precautions, just not that easy to organise, but I'll manage! and is there a way to offer (Christmas gift) to a close family member (my little cousin like my bro...)?

    This would create artificial demand and make it harder for others to win the lottery.  If you can only make it to 1 show, then only enter the lottery for 1 show.  The rules are clear.

    As long as you can be at the venue to pick up the tickets and hand them off to him, sure. 

    I agree with Copper Tom. Rules are very clear and 10c adheres to those rules. If you find that you cannot make it, contact 10c to let them know. You will NOT get your money back but they will donate the tickets. I've know people who had to do that. Better to let someone experience the show than to let the overpurchased tickets go to complete waste.

    If anyone has a spare GA ticket for the Tuesday 19th June London show (2nd show), please let me know, will 100% take it (buy it from you as per ten club rules).
  • I understand the lottery part, but yes, it would be really unfair if the tickets were "won'". They are purchased.. therefore the person who has spent the money need to gracefully give up to another one who has the same interest and was willing to pay for it but didn't get it? There is no "second thought", or give the opportunity to make someone else happy.
    I had read the rules before entering the draw, and I remembered clearly that I committed to purchase them (my credit card has been debited), but I still find the rules to exchange or re-sell (with NO mark up) INSIDE the club too tight..

    TM was always an option. 

    Rules are clear and I am sure that years of stories of reselling and personal tour funding through ticket reselling went into their thought process.

    They don't allow mark ups because that would encourage the machine that is scalping. If people desire to do that outside of 10c, that is their own gig. However, 10c will not allow it under the umbrella of 10c membership. You can get bounced for that. 

    I'm sorry that you are dissatisfied with the 10c ticket purchasing policies, but you had to click the lil box stating that you understood them prior to purchase. Are they inflexible? Yes. Most of us work with it and understand those parameters prior to committing though.

  • I don't want to make any mark up, not the intention, never was and won't be
    just having hte possibility with the 10c to pass on for a reason (good reason) to someone else who has not been drawn in the lottery. the funds are with the organisation for at least 7months: having 2 members willing to agree to swap the tickets would require from the organisation 1. name change 2. a refund on a CC they debited: it would stay within the 10c, avoid mark up (fully agree with that) and you could even imagine adding a layer of: you can do that once every 2 years or some kind of limits.. Technically i don't think it is hard, it stays within clear boundaries.. It was a first for me, and it will be the first time in 25 years I'm following PJ I'm gonna see PJ live (I go to the Barcelona one with my wife). But I sincerely and honestly didn't think I could possibly win the Italian gig and Barcelona, and I did..

    They pass the tickets on to charity. They don't cycle back through people who missed out on lottery. 

    We'll agree to disagree on this one and label it as lesson learned that is warned prior to ticket purchase-- make certain that whatever tickets you put in for are shows that you can absolutely attend or be in place to retrieve the physical tickets from Will Call.

    The way the lottery works, you don't know if you will get tickets to 1 show, 4 shows, or get shut out of them all. The system leads to these types of things happening. It is what it is.
  • the terms were clear - I went in for 3 dates, thinking I'd be lucky to get one - I got all 3 so have just gone for it, now going to 4 and hoping to find a ticket for London 1 too.

    Swapping would be convenient but operationnaly not viable for Ten club. They would have to manage too many requests. Moreover it would encourage people to enter to all dates.
    Maybe they should add a possibility to specify the maximum of tickets you want to buy...
    I would personally be more interested in being a able to buy single and not pairs of tickets.

    I feel your pain - I didn't read the terms and conditions carefully and ended up with a couple of extra tickets too! If anyone wants a pair of standing tickets for London 19/6 (2nd night) let me know.

    What's the deal with fan club ticket sales - I'm assuming face value is acceptable or does it need to be like-for-like trade?
    Are the standing ones still available?

    I got shut out of both local (Fenway) shows last time around. It's annoying to see people buy whatever they can get their hands on then figure out what to do with them later. I'm in favor of anything the 10C does to curb this, especially making them non-refundable/non-transferable. Looks like some extra wrinkles for US ballpark shows this year, which is nice.

    You dont have to explain anything to these people as to why your tix cant be utilized.    Shit happens!! those who dont like it should learn to keep it to themselves!!
