20 comments to friday feb 11 ticketmaster sale @ 11am EST
Please show Chicago some love and do a mini-farewell tour (like NIN). I did see you at Pitchfork and with Hot Chip, but the MSG tix went way too fast or got picked up by scalpers. I’m not trying to be greedy. But none of my coworkers and I got any tix, and they were only trying to get me to so I would stop talking about it.
Will still fly out to NYC and try and score tix, but the Widny City will show you love!
I am not the slightest bit surprised that this show old out in a matter of minutes and the majority of fans got shut out. When you publish a ticketmaster event as a popular band’s “LAST SHOW EVER” your going to attract the attention of every scalper in america. I think they could have found a more sublte route for getting this information to their real fans. I also wish the band would have chosen to use the ticketing method so many other big names have been doing these past few years, requiring the name on the tickets to match the name on the billing statement. I was extremely grateful that the band kept ticket prices modest for their fans, shame that the scalpers will be the only ones benefitting from it. Of the 18 LCD Soundsystem fans i know who tried for tickets this morning, not a single person got a single ticket. What a disaster
A big FUCK YOU! and a kick in the face to all the re-sellers who bought ALL the tickets on ticketmaster in 2 milliseconds-and are reselling at crazy prices.
so word on the street is all the tickets are bought up by “bots” and are already being resold on stub-hub.
I have sincerely learned to hate ticketmaster. When I heard that ya’ll would be playing your last show at the garden of course I jumped at the opportunity to buy tickets, I quickly put up a nice chunk of change for the tickets, marked down April 2nd on my calendar and set aside my black & whites for the show. Come the morning of 2/11 (Today) I woke up, took a shower, brushed my teeth and sat my ass down in front of the computer. With my trigger finger on the mouse and the mouse on the refresh button I was ready for 11 ‘o’ clock to come rearing it’s timely head so I could get my hands on 2 tickets of what I was sure to be one of the most amazing concert experiences of my entire life with one of the greatest bands of my time as i’m sure hundreds of other people were doing as well. but something went wrong. as 11:00 came around the tickets had no yet gone on sale! I was beginning to get nervous but told myself “it’s all right, as soon as they do you’ll be right here, credit card information copied and ready to paste, just keep refreshing” Then, at 11:06 When the page on ticket master finally showed the options of quantity and seating area and handicapped options I sprung into action. Quickly! Two tickets, POW, done. Seating area? Doesn’t matter, best available, POW POW, done. Finally, stupid captcha with words I don’t understand, POW POW POW, DONE…..And then, I waited during the “We are currently working on your request” with excitement soaring through my heart. I did it. I persevered through the annoyance and uncertainty of purchasing something over the internet with high demand and limited quantity. For the first time in the long troubling months I’ve been having, I finally had something to look forward to. But alas, as it seems to be with everything I care about in life, I get a taste of something and it gets pulled away, the girl I love makes promises to me and breaks every last one of them, not a single restaurant will hire me as a waiter and the harder I go, the harder I fall. Unfortunately ticket master had informed me that the tickets I wanted were not available for whatever reason. So I tried again and again, cursing ticket master while searching “lcd soundsystem” in google and clicking the real time option, only to find other people’s tweets reflecting the same attitude I had. So, after about half an hour, I gave up and decided to write this. I don’t know if anyone will ever read it but I’ve decided it’s a good place to vent. Right now, I need somewhat of a miracle or thousands of extra dollars to waste on shit eating scalpers, neither of which I am too hopeful for. So, to the members of LCD Soundsystem, if you’re ever able to do two farewell shows at the garden, I’m not eve sure I’d be able to get tickets to THAT one either but i’m sure there are hundreds of people just like me wishing they had another chance to beat the masses and get a damn spot at the ONLY place to be on April 2nd. I wish all the best to everyone involved in the Soundsystem familia, I’m sure that any future projects of such talented people will bear just as much fruit as the last one, thank you for giving us, the people, such fantastic music to live by over the years and most importantly, break a leg and have an ass-whopping amount of fun during your very last show. Keep on rocking the fuck out.
dude, pre-sale sold too much, i need to see this band if its the last thing i do, if u can’t do anything i understand, but if this is your swan song i need to go
LCD… everyone i spoke to was unable to purchase, is this a flaw on ticketmasters end? are they or are they not on sale?
Gone so fast. I tried at 11 on the dot. Any additional sales?
Just writing to you guys as such a long lasting and loyal fan, who like many others had and have NO SHOT at getting tickets to the last show. I’m so upset by this, I can’t imagine not being able to see you guys one last time…I was so excited but so sad about you guys ending, but also having one last show. Now, it’s just a terrible feeling to be blocked out by all the money-hungry stubhub posters and every other venue who stole the tickets from underneath us.
It’s unfortunately you guys couldn’t ensure that only your real fans would be buying tickets, not the rich and snobby folks who are just going to be there “to be there”.
I am an honest, hard working person who would like nothing more in this world than to get to see you guys one last time. If there is anyway you can accomidate, I would be beyond appreciate.
Please where I can buy a ticket I am desprately trying to buy since 11 am and I can’t.
please give me some instructions if there are any tickets please
I will come from Macedonia for this…
is all Madisone sold out?
Just wanted to share a few observations from today sale that might be of interest. The ticketmaster website did not update at 11 to allow for purchase of tix. It looked just like did after the presale ended until about 11:03. Then it kept going back and forth between the two views. Once I could make a request it went to the no tix available screen after one minute. I’ve tried to get tickets to other impossible shows before and this has never happened. Usually you can’t get on to ticketmaster because its so bogged down and when u do get on you are stuck in a 15 minute queue. Sometimes you’ll get tickets after the wait sometimes you don’t. Today sale was very odd. Wished I could have gotten tickets but I wish all of you the best and am excited for whatever new projects are in your future.
i cant seem to buy em on ticketmaster :-(. ugh i wanted some tickets so bad. now everyones selling them for thousands of dollars! ive never seen you guys before and have been way too broke to and now was the only time i actually had enough money! blah im so saddd but im sure you’ll do an awesome show. i wish you luck! maybe ill catch some youtube clips of it or something
They sold out immediately! Like within seconds! Now I’ll never get to see a show :(
Dam I missed out, you should of done a ballot like ledzep did at the o2, only a few tickets got resold for that. Or do another date.
I tried over and over to get a ticket from 11AM to 5PM. It kept saying tickets were sold out. It could not have physically sold the whole Garden in a few minutes. What is the racket that the Garden and Ticketmaster have? I am disappointed I wasn’t able to buy a ticket even though I tried when they were first available.
