Anyone else getting irritated at how hard it is to get concert tickets these days, my brother and I tried getting some Metallica tickets on the weekend and they sold out almost instantly, then ten minutes later EBAY has dozens for sale at several times the cost. There has to be a way they can curb this crap. I cant even get Great Big sea tickets for less than $150 a ticket.

Try calling TicketMaster a few minutes prior to tickets "officially" going on-sale. If the announcement is for 10:00 am (for example ...), call at 9:55 am; the lines could well be opened by then. Or, you might just get a ticket sales rep who's not paying careful attention to answer the phone early.

yeah that kind of ticked me off too. I'd LOVE To see Metallica. Unfortunately there isn't a bigger venue than the Dome to hold a show like this in the winter.

I believe it is also illegal to scalp tickets here too, ( ie sell them for more than face value ) but I could be wrong.

Since most people either call or use the internet, try the old fashioned way and actually go to a ticket counter.
