So for the past month or so I've really been looking forward to see Van Halen with David Lee Roth on November 23, 8:00 PM, at the Jobing.com Arena (yeah, I really wanted to go). Tickets went on sale today at noon for my area's concert. So I rush home home after school, and... THEY'RE SOLD OUT. All that's left is the $150 dollar seats. And I would spend the $150 in a heartbeat to see them, but I don't have that money right now, and I was hoping to get the $50 dollar seats. They sold out in literally 2 and a half hours (it's 2:30 right now).

I am so fucking pissed!



I'm normally very against pointless rants like this over the internet, but I had to vent somewhere, seeing as nobody else really knows who Van Halen is (around here anyway). And now that I think about it, I'm really more sad than angry.

Is anybody else going to see them or hoping to see them?

They went so fast because other people wanted to see them more than you did.
If you'd been really desperate, you'd have cut school for an hour to get them.

Just go down there and buy off a tout ?

You're bound to get one, although it could be a bit higher than the actual price, but if you want to go so bad, then you'll pay it

I'd do it. I think that I could stand one night with a man for the financial security of my whole life and the life of my children

Then how the fuck did it sell out so quickly?
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.

You're completely right...its just...stupid...


...in the pit?! NO!
#18
Ah, man that sucks.

Good luck next time getting a ticket when they come to your area.

Wow, you guys are nice. But I should have expected this, seeing as it's The Pit. I said I don't have the money to buy the $150 dollar tickets right now, which will probably be sold out in the next few hours. I guess my best bet is eBay and scalpers.

And to all the poeple that say "If you were a real fan, you would have ditched school to get the tickets", fuck off.

Well, you would. Don't tell me the Stasi are guarding your school and shooting defectors.

Once again, fuck off.

Edit: Sorry. I don't really mean that. I didn't think I'd have to get the tickets as soon as possible, to be honest. I figured 2 hours was plenty of time before they sold out. And even if I did ditch school, I don't have a car, I don't know the city bus schedules, and my house is quite a way from my school across several freeways.

Sorry, but here's the simple fact.
You can go to school 5 days out of every 7. Those tickets would have been available for at most 1 day. You made your choice, and that was that school was more important.
So no $50 tickets for you.

You make it sound like thats a bad thing.

Ah. In that case, I suppose you'll just have to save up and make a touts day. Which sucks.

If you have a craigslist in your area, look for the $50 tickets on there. If you have an active craigslist community, someone is bound to put up their tickets by at least this weekend.
