    I'm shocked at the amount of seats available for The Benaroya Hall shows. The venue seats under 2,500. TM has Premium Orchestra Center Row U seats for both nights selling for $287. I believe face value around those was right around $250.

    I see them. A lot of them. It sucks that these last two day's many tickets are going back up. Many amazing seats. Ticketmaster releases them now? Damn stupid! While many of us tried for 10club tickets with no luck. Didn't even get picked for that Ticketmaster Fan thing. That was a complete joke. Ticketmaster had been sitting on these amazing seats. And only NOW they release them to the public? Day's before the show? Damn stupid! So wanted to plan our vacation back in August to Seattle to see one of the Ed shows, even yet both Ed shows. Didn't score tickets so we changed our plans. Now that I see both nights many tickets are up, great seats & great prices too? it just plain sucks!

    I have mixed feelings about Premium pricing, production holds, day-of releases, etc...

    At one extreme, 10c could have sold all 1200 pairs of tickets to members via private lottery, in which case, with few exceptions, anybody who didn't win the lottery would just be out of luck. At the other extreme, the entire venue could have started on public sale at premium pricing ($500+), dropping as we get closer to show, and the market would have dictated what the right price point is for all the tickets to move. A greater number people would have been able to buy without relying on chance, but only the people who are willing to spend the most would have gotten tickets.

    There are for sure flaws with the current system, but I think it aims to be the best of both worlds.. of all worlds? Everyone (in 10c) gets a chance to request tickets at initial face value via a lottery. People with an abundance of money get to buy better tickets with that money pretty much up until showtime. And people with an abundance of time get to buy/upgrade tickets by continually refreshing TM with that time. And hey, if you don't have extra money or extra time, you might still end up with a face value ticket by going to the box office on the day of the show.

    No system's gonna be perfect, but in the grand scheme of things this one's not terrible.

    Haven’t you been following along on F2F?

    Tickets are always dropping closer to the show.

    Easily book refundable rooms and flights in case plans fall through but tickets can always be had. 

    YOLO.
