I just did a quick check. Original tickets are sold out. The resale market is certainly strong though. Tickets that were initially $290 are on the 'verified resale' at $1808 ea. Unbelievable! Nosebleeds and far back going for $165-well over $300 plus. Scalpers are gross. There really needs to be a solution for this.

Are you talking about the Mpls show? There are plenty of $165 standard price tickets available right now on Ticketmaster.  Gotta love that Ticketmaster interface!

I honestly do not think it is just the interface.   Here is a local news story.  I do have a bit of a problem with them saying hey- "join the club" on the news though.  That breeds a whole new monster, and can tell from tickets in Chicago that scalpers got into  the presale too.

There are still GA tickets on sale for Detroit. I picked up two today.  Available Indy tickets were all resale tickets.

There are some face value tickets left for Indy including GA per Ticketmaster.

As of yesterday, there are LOTS of tickets still available for all of the American 3rd leg shows.  (most still have GA avail) Scads of empty seats & the band's boredom/ fatigue of playing basically the same show for the previous 3 months could mean we'll be getting some "mail in" type of shows.  I hope not, but it looks like it's going this way.  If they'd shake up the setlist, maybe some of the folks that went to leg 1 will pony up the $$ to see it again....

I've been concerned about this, too. It also worries me that...if the 3rd leg shows don't sell well, will the band skip those cities on the SOE tour?

I imagine the SOE tour is going to be major US markets only - multiple arena shows at the same venues like I+E (Staples or Forum, United Center, MSG, etc...).  I could be wrong on that one, but that's kinda how I figured they would do it after this more extended stadium tour.  Good news for you though is they did Phoenix on that tour.

Thanks...that made me feel a little better! Sorry for all the cities that get skipped, though.

They are playing at the football stadium in Glendale, AZ this tour, correct?  I wonder if they'd play the hockey or the basketball arena next time - it seems strange that the Coyotes and Suns don't play in the same place.

Yes, this tour is at the football stadium. They played in the US Airways Center (basketball) for the SOI shows..which was just WONDERFUL!

I honestly do not think it is just the interface.   Here is a local news story.  I do have a bit of a problem with them saying hey- "join the club" on the news though.  That breeds a whole new monster, and can tell from tickets in Chicago that scalpers got into  the presale too.

Such a crock of sh**e!   
The fact that no one has to disclose number of seats available...
The fact that it's "cheaper" to buy one ticket vs two or more...
The fact that joining a fan club guarantees nothing...
All this gets my blood boiling
( plus, that was a horribly written article)
Sorry...still trying to let go my fake ticket Chicago experience...guess I'm still bitter.

Ummmm, mathematically speaking, is it not wholly rational for 1 ticket to be cheaper than 2 or more?!?!

Yes. I understand the obvious 😀
What I understood the article to be saying is some "verified resale sites" charge more for multiple seats which are together than the same number of seats in different rows/sections.
