I'm glad someone understood what he was saying. I mean, I understood what he was saying, but not how it related to what I said.

you asked "why am I going out of my way to spend hundreds of dollars for this?" - the implication being that you're doing it to be nice, AKA "get a like" (term stolen from social media).

Ticketmaster suspends Taylor Swift ticket sales set for Friday after chaotic early rollout
I just don't understand. If these people want to see Taylor Swift so badly, why don't they just book her for a private concert?

It's one concert, Michael. What could it cost, $10?

Ticketmaster suspends Taylor Swift ticket sales set for Friday after chaotic early rollout

from the article:
Quote
"Ticketmaster announced Thursday afternoon that it was halting public ticket sales of Taylor Swift’s “Eras” tour on Friday due to “extraordinarily high demands on ticketing systems and insufficient remaining ticket inventory” to meet demand."

first off, calling off an onsale due to high demand isn't a thing.  their business is literally to meet that demand, and TM constantly touts its supposedly unique ability to handle large onsales. buck up, TM, and deal with the surge.  bring in temporary computing muscle if that's the issue.

second, "insufficient remaining ticket inventory"??  so they sold all the tickets during the presale?  who effed up that one??  or, scenario #2: TM saw that demand from a limited portion of the market (those who got in on the presale) for a limited portion of the inventory (the fraction that was allotted to presales) was more than they could handle, so they bailed on facing off against the whole of the market for the larger portion of the inventory.

if scenario #2 is correct, there are still lots of tickets left.  gee, i wonder what TM will do with a pile of the most in-demand tickets ever that need to be sold but they won't "can't" sell them out the front door... hmmm.... i wonder...

Yeah I just don’t understand what’s going on here. Unless they sold a ton of tickets during presales this makes little sense.

They'll all be "platinum" sales, i.e., variable pricing.

I thought she wasn’t using variable pricing

I don’t know what artists can do when people are trying to buy tickets just to scalp them. In today’s world it seems everyone is a would be scalper.

I had heard that there were 2.9 million total tickets and they wre saving 800,000 of those for the general sale. I'm betting they're now saing them to be sold at a much higher price, like Sweetcell said.

I thought they had fixed prices but I guess they could change the price level sections.

Honestly making tickets more expensive doesn’t seem like something Taylor would do. Didn’t she get burned with a previous onsale?

I really haven’t been following this cause  I am not like a Swiftie Stan.
