Resale ticket question

How do resale sites already have so many tickets ? Are they from people who bought them during presale and listed them asap ? Should one be concerned if they get tickets this way? A legitimate resale site is different than say getting them off ebay , right?

Because touts buy them en masse). Vileagogo, Seat Wave, Get me in and Stub Hub are all supported by TM/LN in some way- but I wouldn't buy from them- tickets always drop nearer the shows so suggest waiting

As much as I would absolutely love for you to be right about Vegas... Sam Boyd Stadium hasn't been called the Silver Bowl since 1993. At least put a little research into your phony dates.

And, uh, the Georgia Dome? It's closing in March, with demolition beginning shortly there after. The new Mercedes-Benz Stadium isn't scheduled to open until July. So unless they plan on playing on a pile of rubble, your dates are bullshit.

I'm looking at, all in around £650 for the two of us for flights, tickets and hotel for 1night in Dublin. I almost wish I'd never bought the tickets now as I've also got to get myself to Twickenham and the accommodation for that, it'll be well over £1000 for this tour.
Snap...I`m in the same boat! Juts found a coach company - Big green company that offer a return coach travel from Leicester to Twickenham for £28 so that willsaveme accomodation in London. They travel from several offer cities too.

Couldn't you fly from Edinburgh? £40-£50 return 22nd July

It's £185 return (for 2 people)and that would be getting into Dublin at 15.00 which is very tight for time and any delays. The 8am flights are an extra £20 plus need to get the bus through to Edinburgh which is about £20odd return each. Would end up the same price as the Glasgow flights but with stupid times.

Can any of our Dubliners tell us if anything else is going on that weekend, or if this is just because of the concert(s)?

If it's just the concerts then there's a decent chance that prices will level out over time. If there's a convention or other big event, maybe not so much.

Managed to get return flights from Newcastle to Dublin for just shy of £80. Not chancing flying in on the day of the gig, so arrive around 9pm on the day before and leave 10.20am on Sunday.

Got a room in a hostel a stones throw from Croke for £16 per night - as I only need somewhere to sleep, it'll do just fine...

It's mostly because it's already tourist season. Last gig was after the summer holidays, so cheaper accomodation as there's less demand. July is the most expensive month in most European cities.
