Is the difficulty limited to writing?


Alas, I am afraid not. We would need to mind-meld Vulcan style.

One sec....

HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGG...!

Did that work?

This approach worked for me as I recall.

Got my ticket for Chicago. Squarewave and I both guessed the pre sale password at the same time.

I don't mess with The Metro much and presale says sold out. I'm assuming limited presale and the whole thing isn't sold out. Is that right? I've never seen them before and might just go walk into the lake if so :-/

I’m assuming it was limited. I just happened upon the presale this morning and squarewave texted me at the same time and we cracked the password. I bet there’s more available tomorrow at 10am.

No promises though! I really don’t know for sure.

I didn't know about the pre-sale. Hoping to be able to land a ticket tomorrow morning or else it's a road trip to Nashville.

I can't complain about anything, having the opportunity to see one of my favorite bands again and all. But with that said, I'll go ahead and do so. I wish they weren't playing at The Metro. But they'll play and it'll rule and everything will be ok.

Well that sucks. NYC sold out within 5 minutes. If anyone has a spare leading up to December please PM me. I would really like to go.

I watched the on sale button appear for the Chicago show. Somehow sold out before I could get a single ticket. The hell? Please keep me in mind if you wind up with a spare.

They're already on fucking Stub Hub for $80.

I forgot that this is how horseshit works now.
So if I don't get one at stubhub by end of day they will be sold out , and then tomorrow I will have to go to stubhub exxxtreme and get one for 120. Sometimes I really hate the modern world. ( as I type on my personal phone computer.)

Metro sent me an email with the password at noon yesterday after I had already read El Protoolio's post and ordered a ticket myself. Their system must have remembered me from back in 2009 when I saw both Turkey day weekend shows.

I really feel for you people who've never seen them before. I wish I had an extra ticket to give to a PRF member. Bots/stubhub twats found out the code, ordered as many as possible and will jack up the prices on Stubhub and sell them to Instagram idiots who heard about this crazy rock band with a crazy singer and omg, let's go and check it out.

My post was intended to help people here. If I inadvertently helped out scalper scum as well I am truly sorry and wish I had offered it via PM. I just got all excited and wanted all my PRF bros and lady bros to have a shot at a ticket like I did.

Fuck you scalpers, let the fans have their show.

I just sat on the etix page for the show as the live countdown to 10AM zeroed out...it automatically refreshed the page at 10:00:00 and let me get 2. I went back to get a few more at 10:01 and the site was gateway'd out. Wild.

Same. I took a screenshot of the timer at the 30 second mark to make fun of myself for being there so early thinking it would sell out in a few days. Even with scalpers I don't understand how this happens.

Check out this twat.
$160

Dude is in Virginia. Thankfully he dropped the shipping charge from $30 to $12. Now I can Uber there.
