Concert Tickets usually go on sale to the
public several months before the scheduled performance date.
Keep in mind if the event is popular, additional shows may be
added after the first one sells out. Because of the large reach
of the Internet, there are now thousands of people all battling
online, to be first in line. Best advice, do your homework and
start early. Know your concert date, know which phone numbers to
dial. Call early, there may be a hold. Get online early and get
your show loaded up. A higher speed Internet connection seems to
help also, although it is by no means a miracle cure for getting
tickets on the Internet.
With bands charging more and more for
tickets, it is almost easier just to go to a broker right off
the bat. If tickets go onsale for your favorite artist and you
are shut out, tickets are still usually readily available from
online ticket brokers. So why does a broker have tickets and you
don't? Simple, if there are 20,000 tickets sold for a concert.
Somebody is going to have extras. They don't call you to sell
them, they call a broker. Some brokers take orders for concert
tickets before the show even goes on sale, just guaranteeing a
general location of seating. If you absolutely have to make sure
you get tickets, this may be your best bet. Otherwise, the
greatest variety of inventory available seems to be about 2-3
days after the concert goes on sale.
