PostSubject: Tickets outside venue?   Sun Jan 18, 2015 1:34 pm

Hello folks, im shut out of the Belfast show in June, went for tix on friday nite but the gig is sold out.

I have put the word out to some friends, and on twitter and on here. If all else fails i will turn up and try for a ticket outside the venue on the night of the show. The venue is literally 5 minutes from our house.

I have done this twice for Springsteen gigs and got face value tickets with no problem (i dont beleive in buying or selling above face value).

Has anyone any experience with this at Gaslight shows? What are my chances?

Thanks for any help/advice...i cant miss this show Sad

Well it's all about the economics, the touts will sell at above face value if there are buyers in the market. The closer it gets to showtime, the less buyers there will be, and the price should drop accordingly. You just have to stick to your guns and wait till it hits your price. You have the fact you live 5 minutes away as a massive advantage. Drop that in to try and psyche the tout out and make out you're a casual gig goer. Remember Bruce playing in town is a much bigger deal so there'll be more spares available.

Get there early and see if any of the hardcore fans have spares too, if they don't then do as above. Might be a long night so grab a few beers. Good luck!

There's a chance I'll have a spare for this. I can't guarantee that I will, but I'll keep you in mind! There will be loads going nearer the time anyway. Download the app Twickets and keep an eye on it the week before the gig, use touts as a last resort!

Thanks for the replies folks!

Unorthadox1080- please keep me in mind for that spare you may have. I've managed to get 1 ticket so far but still looking for a second as my wife also wants to go.

Thanks again

Definitely have a spare now, if you're still in need.
