    I need 2 tickets to Baltimore...

    Been trying to come to terms with the fact that this will be an extreme longshot.  This fan-to-fan exchange is going to be EXTREMELY limited and the majority of the small number of tickets available will likely be singles.  It is hard to imagine very many folks who scored a pair of tickets to this show will later decide (or be forced to for reasons beyond their control) to say, "Nah, can't make the show."

    Other than getting exceptionally lucky and scoring 2 on the fan exchange, I am trying to discern my options.  Thus far, I have only seen obnoxiously high prices on ticketing websites I have never heard of but allegedly let people sell access to their TM account for purposes of entering the show.  Even if I could come up with the money, not sure I would trust this process....

    Are there any other legal and/or feasible ways of getting 2 tickets to Baltimore?  I have heard about the possibility of a "Platinum Seat" package but I don't see anything yet for this show.

    Are there other options I have not considered?

    Getting back to the exchange, I would pound it as soon as it opens for a day or two. Wouldn't surprise me to see pairs pop up right away. People who put in for 10C with friends and they both hit. People who grabbed VF/public tix as well as 10C and throw back whichever is "worse." Etc.

    If you can wait, I predict another spike as it gets within a day or two of the show. Plans change, people flake, people give up on finding someone for their extras. Plus the holds that mpedone mentioned. Depending on how much effort you can put toward it, I think it's more likely than not that you can score tickets.

    Thanks for the shot of optimism!

    You bet. That's how I'd approach it if I were in your shoes. If they schedule a single show in Boston this fall, I may very well be in your shoes!

    That is kind of a funny visual....like you have to wear his (or her....or them or its' for that matter) shoes to get tickets...

    So does the F2F exchange mean you have to be registered with ticketbastard like you had to with the presale?

    You would be buying tickets through Ticketmaster so yes you would need an account. But we have had no indication that you will need to register Verified Fan style and hope for a code.

    This probably has already come up in the thread but how are you supposed to sell your tickets when Ticketmaster isn’t allowing me access to the tickets until March 26th?

    What do you mean not allowing you access until the 26th?
  • BeenerBeener Posts: 13
    On my TM account the tickets have a countdown saying tickets will be ready “countdown clock” which is up on e 26th of March.

    And right below that countdown clock (I'm looking at the tickets on the app) it has a big blue button that says "Transfer" right?

    Edit: this is for NY (and presumably CO), not sure which show you're looking at.

    TM is doing it. If I had to guess it will be run exactly like the previous method of buying on ticketmaster for secondhand tickets but this time only for face and no fees.

    Can we assume the face value exchange will include MSG?

    A couple of ISO MSG topics have been shut down with the message that 10c is face value only and includes copied text about the F2F exchange. One can hope.

    I was wondering the same thing when I saw those
  • Sadly I'm pretty sure I will be listing my Baltimore tickets on the exchange.  They are far back on the floor and I badly injured my knee and will likely have to have surgery.  I'll need more accessible seats if I'm going to go.

    Yeah, I noticed that, too. I'll be happy to be wrong on that one.

    Other than getting exceptionally lucky and scoring 2 on the fan exchange, I am trying to discern my options.  Thus far, I have only seen obnoxiously high prices on ticketing websites I have never heard of but allegedly let people sell access to their TM account for purposes of entering the show.  Even if I could come up with the money, not sure I would trust this process....

    Are there any other legal and/or feasible ways of getting 2 tickets to Baltimore?  I have heard about the possibility of a "Platinum Seat" package but I don't see anything yet for this show.

    Are there other options I have not considered?

    Getting back to the exchange, I would pound it as soon as it opens for a day or two. Wouldn't surprise me to see pairs pop up right away. People who put in for 10C with friends and they both hit. People who grabbed VF/public tix as well as 10C and throw back whichever is "worse." Etc.

    If you can wait, I predict another spike as it gets within a day or two of the show. Plans change, people flake, people give up on finding someone for their extras. Plus the holds that mpedone mentioned. Depending on how much effort you can put toward it, I think it's more likely than not that you can score tickets.

    Thanks for the shot of optimism!
    You bet. That's how I'd approach it if I were in your shoes. If they schedule a single show in Boston this fall, I may very well be in your shoes!

    I need 2 tickets to Baltimore...

    Been trying to come to terms with the fact that this will be an extreme longshot.  This fan-to-fan exchange is going to be EXTREMELY limited and the majority of the small number of tickets available will likely be singles.  It is hard to imagine very many folks who scored a pair of tickets to this show will later decide (or be forced to for reasons beyond their control) to say, "Nah, can't make the show."

    That is kind of a funny visual....like you have to wear his (or her....or them or its' for that matter) shoes to get tickets...

  • Thanks PJNB, I guess you just call TM at 10am the 18th or whatever time it starts and wait in the que? ....I'm guessing at that time they will ask what show I wanted. Ughhh, at least it's another shot at this.....thanks. Good luck everyone!
    I think you log onto TM online, does TM even sell tickets over the phone anymore?
    Nope, only tickets they sell over the phone are for smaller venues, typically for more of the arts.

    Sadly I'm pretty sure I will be listing my Baltimore tickets on the exchange.  They are far back on the floor and I badly injured my knee and will likely have to have surgery.  I'll need more accessible seats if I'm going to go.  
    Sorry to hear about your injury. Not sure exactly what you did but I had tibia plateau fracture in a skiing accident in March of 2016. I had to go on short term disability. It worked out quite well though as I was able to get around enough to go see some shows. I was on crutches and everyone was really helpful and accommodating at all the arenas. I hope your surgery goes well and the recovery is swift.
