For those in the USA who wanted to see the shows in Vegas forget it. The scalpers apparently bought a HUGE supply of now "resale" tickets and are selling at insane prices. $200 and up for shit seats. Many going for $500 or more which caused both shows to "Sell Out". This really should be outlawed and is very corrupt.
How long is the band/management going to allow these venues to be booked when Ticketraper will just artificially inflate the prices through their own reselling platform?
Playing apparently to the Vegas rich elite/tourists only. It's sad that the actual fans who supported the band their whole career get the shaft.
No more off tour shows for me...
I can understand your frustration about the scalpers and all that, but don't get too bend out of shape over this. I mean, they have toured - extensively - for the past, what, two years? So, I'm sure at some point you've seen them. This is just the band padding out their retirement account. Unless there's new material, meh, don't worry about it. Now, if this tour was for new material, then yeah, I'd be a bit irked. Frankly, I don't understand why they're even touring. They need to a) work on new material and b) perhaps get involved a bit with reissuing the albums that are due reissue status (Liberty, TWA, TY).

Yeah. This isn't even really a tour but just a few scattered show. They are doing shows because they make a lot of money doing so... but regardless this problem with scalpers and Ticketraper getting worse and persists ...
I saw that the Miami and New Orleans shows also had crazy prices for "resale" tickets.
