I agree...TF charges a processing fee of $4 for 930 shows....other TF venues don't charge this processing fee
Good points and I agree, too. I used Ticketweb for North Star awhile ago and I think fees total were $3.25 (service/transaction and the 1.25 was the venue fee).
Gah, $10 on a $25 ticket via TF this week.
This is really nitpicky but TF's physical tickets are really cheesy looking. (Ticketweb's are cool)

Who cares what a ticket looks like?

I said it was being nitpicky. I'm not obsessed with my ticket collection, but I do save them. First, TF's don't even fit in a wallet. Secondly, they're pretty cheesy looking and have the TF logo over the entire ticket and are less about the show if you want such memorabilia. I don't really care, just thought of it and mentioned. And, knew, the comment I was subject to question.

besides the show itself . . . the ticket is one of the most important parts of the concert experience.  it better be fucking perfect.  that's why those ticket fast computer printer ticket things suck.

i have a question for miss thing herself, tflyamy . . . or anybody else who might have an answer through experience.  like ticketmaster, does ticketfly "re-release" tickets during any windows of time close to the show.  i can usually, if done correctly, pull fancy pants seats a week or less from the show date on ticketmaster.  that is why i like them and their fees.

I assume this would be up the venue, band, or promoter not the ticketing company.  That said, I pulled 10th row for night 1 Merriweather the day before the show on ticketfly last year.

i was always curious who decided such nice presents for people who couldn't get good tickets and refuse to use stubhubb/craigslist(they'll kill you there like an online version of the streets of dc).  i just refuse to go to merriweather for lawn.  major letdown.

A question that may need to be in the FAQ section, but thought some of you or Amy might know...When a show is sold out, the parking ticket purchase option goes away too. Am I not seeing it? (On tickets.com they were on a separate listing under the show.)
TF parking purchase is on the same page as the show purchase listing. (see a current show not sold out)
Yet, if you look at shows that are sold out a month from now, the parking ticket option is not available; the sold out box is there. Parking doesn't generally sell out in advance (does it?).

Another question is there an option to create an account? It's been awhile since I purchased online. Recently, I did, but I didn't see the option to sign in for an account. I just assumed I never made one & filled out my information  before purchase.

Edit / answer:
Due to the way the system is set up, currently parking tickets are not available on line, once a show sells out.  However, if there is still parking available you can buy at the box office or by calling TicketFly @ 877-435-9849.

Also, there is not an option to create an account on TicketFly, but that is coming very soon.

thank you for linking to parking on the concert list & TF page(s) for sold out shows.

that's the system mocking you for your choice of musical entertainment - "you don't actually want those tickets, now do you?"

A decent mobile app would be nice.
