So I bought two tickets to Disclosure’s show today. I also crumbled and bought a scalped NIN/QOTSA ticket for the March 15th show off eBay. I already have two to the March 14th show for myself and my girlfriend. I’ve been in talks with my friend from Adelaide as she wants to go to the March 15th, but we’d both been hesitant to buy a scalped ticket due to the possibility of the ticket being invalid/refunded.
So I purchased the scalped ticket and messaged my friend that I had my ticket (we wanted GA tickets, and they were all sold out). About 5 minutes of back and forth messaging organising what she was going to do. She notified me that Ticketek had put some more GA tickets for the March 15th show, most likely due to scalped/refunded tickets. I didn’t bother checking Ticketek, since GA tickets have been sold out since the day they went on sale.
Here I am with a scalped ticket, and the possibility of it being refunded/invalid. Due to my refusal of not witnessing both shows, we both bought a ticket from Ticketek. I refuse to miss out due to a scalper.
I now have two tickets to the March 15th show, and now I need to sell the scalped one, but I’m hesitant to do so as I don’t know the status of the ticket, and I don’t want to sell an invalid ticket to someone. Fuck scalpers. They just create shit situations for dedicated fans.
