The Benefits of Not Buying Through Ticketmaster

Earlier this week I got Thom Yorke tickets through Radiohead’s site. I hadn’t done this before. I suspected better seats and guessed somewhere around half the cost of what Ticketmaster would sell them for 2 days later.

There was no seating map to view at the time of purchase and Row 8 seat 66+67 didn’t sound very good. Having practiced in other cities earlier I learned a) it was possible to get 3rd row seats, and b) all is sold in 2 minutes. I seriously considered reloading to try and get better seats but in the end went through with it. Even after looking at the seating I was actually pretty bummed.

So bummed even the cost didn’t cheer me up.

While I equate the $161 to 2 bottles of Whisky, Ticketmaster wants the equivalent of a motorcycle and 2 helmets. I’m now over the moon.
