It’s just fucking bullshit.
I decided not to go down to the one Ticketmaster outlet in Canberra.
I thought I would just give the old internet a go at 9am this morning.
Rage Against The Machine. Damn….i can’t wait!
8.57am – All ready. Got my credit card. Logged in. Seating Chart next to me (even though I want to stand)
8.59am – Nothing yet. Refreshing. Refreshing.
9.00am – GO GO GO. 2 tickets. Standing Section. Click click click.
9.00:10am – FUCKING STUPID CUNTING WORD VERIFICATION. WHAT DOES THAT SAY???? plotll?? plotm? DAMN GOT IT WRONG. TRY AGAIN….
9.00:15 – 9.25am – Try again and again and again and again and again until…
I ring the single Ticketmaster outlet in Canberra and asked, “So, did you have any people lined up this morning?”
He replied, “Yeah..about 100 people here and they are all disappointed. We have a direct line to Ticketmaster here and no-one got tickets”
“Yeah. They are all pissed. We are trying to find out if there’s a second show”
Well, sorta glad I didn’t line up then…
Seconds later on the Ticketmaster website:
NOTE: RAGE AGINST THE MACHINE HAS SOLD OUT. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE WILL BE APPEARING AT THE BIG DAY OUT, ON SALE WEDNESDAY 10TH OCTOBER 2007.
FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK.
So pissed off.
Big Day Out Tickets now. They will sell out in record time.
What’s the bet they release a second RATM show after the BDO tickets sell out.
It’s about marketing.
It should be all about the music.
