Are mother ****ers...

I spent an hour refreshing multiple sites trying to get tickets for Them Crooked Vultures, Hammersmith apollo, to no avail.
I check ebay and theres HUNDREDS of tickets all being sold over £100...

How is this still alowed to happen? Why do so many people get into it? Surely they can stop this, or even bring it down to a controllable level..

It seems like only ticket touts got to this bloody sale...

TL: DR Did anyone actually get tickets for this show? Any suggestions for reducing the amount of ticket touts?

they know when the tickets actually go on sale so they can but them the exact time they are released before they all sell out

and it's allowed cause once they have purchased the tickets they may do whatever the hell they like with them


i hate them too, i want to see muse but way too much now

No they can't. Nobody is allowed to make a profit from selling tickets, except for the vendor.

You'r mate' is an asshole.

Why does he have to exploit people to make a bit of cash? What is wrong with his morals? Can't he make money without f-in people over?

Or he just gets off on being a dick to people coz he's insecure?

he is quite a dick to be honest, he did have a job but quit because it was "boring", the bastard!
& although it sucks for whoevers buying them, it is relatively easy to make a bit of money

A mate of mine got tickets. And we saw them at Reading already. Life is unfair, huh?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

i assumed it would be allowed since it's all over ebay and the sales are never taken off

Maybe you should have gotten tickets earlier. Stop blaming others for your own problems. Supply and demand biatch.

You say that...

I got mine off eBay for £190 - only a fiver more than the original price

Although the bloke I bought them from only paid £170 in the presale thing.

I bought one in the presale for next year, if the lineup is crap, I can stick it on eBay for silly money a few weeks before

Earlier? The entire tour sold out in 30 minutes. Ticket vendor sites were crashing and countless people who were there from before tickets went on sale were unlucky. Yet still touts got ahold of tickets. It is absolutely right to blame them.

As for TCV, I saw them at Reading and thought they were actually pretty dull

Probably. New Zealand is usually ahead of the curve on things like this.
