Vivid Seats Advice

Has anyone purchased GA tickets through vividseats.com? I'm trying to buy GAs for Boston 1 or 2 and some of the prices there are halfway decent. Is it too good to be true? Since Boston is cc entry it is worrisome.

be prepared to pay an extra $30 in fees

service charge: 26.51
email delivery: 3.95

that's what i had to pay for a phoenix ticket on top of $109

I'd be leery of buying GA to any show that has CC entry on the secondary market.

Yes I am. That is why I'm hoping someone else has tried it first :-)

They'll send you a prepaid gift card and you'll get in just fine. Havent once been asked to show ID when Ive gone to a show with paperless tickets. Just swipe the card and they print out your ticket voucher.

I work for a major company in the secondary market. I can't speak for Vivid, but we've had zero issues with GA. I believe a lot of Garth Brooks tickets are sold similarly, and again, no issues. As I think beershack said, brokers will usually use prepaid gift cards.
