this entire new process is 100% BS. never had a problem buying tix on ticketfly. now TM makes you jump through a million hoops to pretend like they are just not trying to scalp you their "platinum" tickets. verfied fan is just a data collection process to gauge ticket demand to see about how much they can upcharge people.

Ended up grabbing tix, but good God... this honestly was top 5 biggest waste of time/worst experiences buying tickets in the last decade.

Just throw them all up at once and if I strike out, at least I would have only wasted 5-10 minutes. Instead, I got tix to each show but it took me an hour. What a joke.

Yeah I snagged lawn.... never even saw any seats available so idk what the hell was going on with LiveNation but it's whatever. As long as it's not pouring rain it's all good.

I did well with the new system. There's no perfect way to sell 10-15,000 tickets to 100,000 fans.

I prefer the way that they did it forever... Drop the tix at a time and let the bots eat some up, the scalpers eat some up, and give me a crack at good seats. Waiting rooms/queues are the worst of the worst. I'm not even including the fact that TM sent me an email last night saying "congrats you have been selected for Verified Presale. You will have a code texted to you for tomorrow" and of course I never received anything, ha.

I mean realistically I would only have tried for Pit because it's too hard dealing with actual seats when everyone you go with is in different sections.

This was my experience too.

Had a miserable experience trying to get SPAC 7/3 pavilions. ISO: 4 x seats pretty much anywhere under the roof. Willing to part with my Pollock "Sun & Moon" set (green variant).
