nothing on stubhub, so looks like the plan is working.
There's tickets for other shows though. Wonder how they're moving them.
The band released a statement that NY, IL and one other state would not allow the cure to restrict resales, so in those states there will be a secondary market

so at 3:45 pm, the missus texted me "i got this weird code from ticketmaster this morning... was that meant for you?"  i completely forgot that i also signed her up for the presale.  so i get in, and initially there was a pair in the last row, far corner, AKA worse seats in the house.  i hesitated for a few seconds, and they were gone.  not sure those were real available tickets, i suspect i would have gotten the "sorry, someone beat you to them" message.

anyhoo, can now confirm that the show it 100% sold out (not even singles)... except for wheelchair/accessible seating.  no, not going there.

Iíve done the wheelchair thing before. People do not appreciate the humor of you throwing down your crutches halfway thru and pretending the power of music has divinely healed you.

I had the idea for a dating site for handicap people to get free concert tickets
But it seemed like the backlash wouldnít be worth it it

i'm in!!!

i guess it was worth keeping that browser tab open: they released side-view seats.  per the seating map i'm in line with the 3 or 4th row of the floor, but halfway up the lower bowl.  not a complete side-view.  whatever, i'm in.  yeay for tenacity and/or dumb luck.

in furtherance of the band wanting to keep this show affordable: the last 5 rows of the upper side-view tickets are $25 (might have been that all last-5-rows uppers were $25, can't tell anymore).  those are undesirable seats, but nice of the band to have such a price differential which allows financially-constrained fans to attend.

Ok the ALL CAPS is still getting on my nervesÖ but bold move!

https://twitter.com/robertsmith/status/1636496816521748481

So am I getting a $20 refund?

Also, Jules looks like he is not happy about your NY plans

I HAVE BEEN TOLD: StubHub has pulled listings in all markets except NY, Chicago, Denver (IE. CITIES IN STATES THAT HAVE LAWS PROTECTING SCALPERS). PLEASE DON'T BUY FROM THE SCALPERS
