George Strait fans that took the time to go out to the venue box office to buy George Strait tickets without the extra service charges were greeted with the warning that a majority of the seats had already been sold through ticket pre-sales. What was left were just a limited number of upper level seats, most of which had a face value of over $100, the same as the lower level and floor seat price.
A large number of those ended up on the secondary market and even the ticket brokers were left wondering where all of the floor seats went. It turns out even George Strait was selling the best seats for between $400 to $1000 per seat. Not a bad take for the final tour but it didn’t faze the fans that bought up every VIP ticket the first day.
The real pisser though is that fans that traditionally have shown up at the venue to buy tickets are finding that the artists don’t care what tickets are left to sell on the official on-sale date. They will tell you tickets go on sale to the general public on such and such a date but don’t mention they’ve already sold all the best seats and you’re pretty much wasting your time going out to the venue other than to save the ticket surcharges.
Considering they are putting most concerts on sale on Friday mornings when most fans are working, they are not doing anybody any favors. Who would have known that even George Strait would let this happen. The fans will show up but there’s still a little bitterness in the ticket pricing and availability for this final tour.
