    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...

    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.  
    As much as I would love to be the buyer of your tickets, perhaps try to set up a swap with someone who has non-floor seats?

    You might want to call the venue and see if they can accommodate you.  I had the same situation - I broke my tibia/fibula and was on crutches and had a ticket to a concert at the Wiltern here in Los Angeles.  I called the box office, and they said they'd be able to help me out.  My ticket was in the very last row, and they allowed me to exchange it for ADA seating that ended up being in the 5th row.  I was worried, but they were really cool about it.

    @ptricia435 im sorry to hear about your injury. as others have said, I would try and call venue and see what they can do. If not, I’m sure you will be able to get rid of them very easily on the exchange.  I will Be scouring day and night for some tickets for friends and family!

    I'll echo what others have said and suggest calling the venue first. If you do decide to sell, just make sure you have other tickets before you list yours!

  • Do we have the info of when this starts on Tuesday & how it all works? Only a couple of days away, you would think we would know what’s up by now.

    Good question. 

    Probably there will be a seating chart. Outside of 3 small markets, for a few brief occurrences, there will be tiny blue dots on the available seats for about 0.000001 seconds.

    Other than that, the exchange will be showing this message:

    "Tickets are sold out now. Check back soon."

    This waiting for 2/18 is driving me crazy. I keep going back and forth on what to do. There are still tickets available behind the stage at OKC, which are slowly being bought, and I am tempted to buy them now to make sure I can at least see them. But then again, I want to wait until the exchange to see if I can get some better seats on it. The idea of missing out entirely because of my desire for better seats would really suck. The other option, just pointed out to me by a friend who is tired of me talking to him about it, would be to purchase some now, and if something better pops up on the exchange, put the ones behind the stage on the exchange and hope they sell. See what I mean about driving myself crazy!?

    Just remember thought that there will be a lot of tix available very close to the show as people's plans change, etc.

    This likely won't be a system where scalpers will buy up whatever becomes available.  Your biggest hurdle will be all of the people trying to better their positions.

    I used to agree with this, but it looks like the "gray market" tickets for Baltimore (the people selling TM account passwords on shady broker sites) have been moving. If that's true, then the scalpers might see some upside in plucking tickets off of the exchanges. (Obviously there's upside in them grabbing anything for MSG or Denver that happens to get listed, which is yet another reason why fans hoping that an exchange will help them get face value tix for those shows are barking up the wrong tree IMO).

    I'll gladly buy those Baltimore tix. I got shut out every possible way so far and that's the closest venue for me.

    I think it's funny people are saying they would buy tickets directly from people - other than NY and Denver, that's not how it works...

    If someone wanted my 2 extra LA 1 and they wanted to walk in with me, I'd gladly sell to them directly. That CAN BE how it works....takes an honest seller

    Nothing. This is a joke. Christ, just put the tickets up and have a free for all. I was 2k plus in line for Rage tickets and got on the floor. 

    There are no tickets unless people are selling them. If no one decides to sell then there is nothing to put up??

    They really don’t want anyone to know how this works. Who the hell is gonna know that this is the F2F? Nothing here says anything about F2F.
