But isn't the 'verified fan' thing supposed to be the anti-scalper measure?

let's be honest, the CC entry didn't really do much damage to the scalpers,
there's an easy way round that...

Anyone who got e-tickets: Is your name printed on them? I read somewhere that they might do this and then you need to present ID to use them at the venue to prevent transfer.

Right. Almost no one in security actually checked our IDs on the previous two tours, which sort of killed the point of trying to shut out scalpers in the first place.

I love seeing shows at MSG but apparently so does everyone else. We’re moving to Detroit soon and I would happily buy tickets for a show there, but nothing has been announced yet so this is where we are.

Are they only making some seats available for Experience users? It just seems really weird that GA wasn't available right out of the gate. I'm debating on trying again tomorrow for the DC show.

My guess is they think the Verified Fan thing is enough of a scalper deterrent.

I was ready to go at Nashville but immediately got no tickets available. No luck since.

It appears that some of those locked out are starting to get codes, so if you gave your info to a mod at Zootopia, they might be fixing the problem.

Since not all tickets are being sold through ticketmaster, and the codes are therefore not being cross-referenced across partner sites live, and you could buy 2 tickets right now on ticketmaster, and 2 tickets using the same code on a partner site, will the purchases ever be cross referenced?

i think this happened before in europe where the same code could be used more than once as long as you used it on a different companies sites.

They disable it at the start of the presale because people could be trying to select the same seats .



So much for trying to stop the scalpers
And just as I expected. There were NEVER any regular lower bowl side seats avilable. OInly things showing are the VIP packages for $665

They've literally spit in fanclub members face with this... well figuratively spit in our faces but yeah haha. Hooray for clamping down on scalpers who have all the tickets on stubhub again anyways. This was such a faux attempt to make the band look like they were trying.
