Looks like night 2 isn't selling all that well. Outside of GA, there are a lot of tickets at all ticket price levels.

I'm not really surprised. A saturday night is going to sell a lot better than a Sunday night.

I tried for GA but had to settle on nose bleeds.  Glad I got those at least.

After the crazyness of the robot captcha fiasco today, I'd not be surprised if people gave up. I finally got a GA, but it was so harrowing! Last Monday's general sale was a breeze!

I counted over 100 GAs on flash seats resale right now for Denver 2, starting at just over $100 and dropping. Yet I know lots of people couldn't get GAs in the general sale. You cannot tell me these GAs are all fans whose plans have changed, perhaps someday the ticket companies will be sued and have to disclose just how many tickets they hold back from general sale in order to put them on their resale site. And then once they are forced to drop the price to face, voila, ticket drop.

^ that's just not surprising.

I'll be selling my extra night 2 GA ticket for my cost. I'm sure Flash will charge an extra service charge.

I can add in my night 1 GA, find the buyer a hotel too, and make it a U2 package weekend! ;)

Flash charges a rather exorbitant "connection" fee for bringing sellers and buyers together (aww, isn't that sweet!).  However, I have successfully transferred tickets for free through them in the past.

You know scalpers buy tickets in presales and general sales along with everyone else, right? Many will post listings on these sites even if they don't actually have any tickets because they know they can get them later and still make a hefty profit.

Once I went early to a box office for a ticket sale and while I was waiting for it to start, wondered why so many middle aged guys were interested in Duran Duran and why they all seemed to know each other. It took a few minutes for me to realize they were all scalpers! They made up probably 80% of the line.

Yeah I know about scalpers, but I think they are being phased out by the ticket companies themselves getting into the scalping/ resale business. Like ticketmaster plus and altitude tickets' flash seats. Eliminate the middle man scalper.

So between the two of us we can help someone out!

Yes, we can!! Hopefully, someone here. :)

Thank you, for the compliment. ♥ I really really should get my travel agent certification! I've been doing it free for over a decade for friends & family; now U2 is touring, so I need some official TA perks! ;)
