Denied!!! Part 2

The entire gang at Coventry got stiff-armed for Phish lottery. We're all trying to acquire tickets via Ticketbastard on Saturday morning.

I have seen 151 Phish shows and I only got shut out of two shows... both in 2000... the first night at Radio City Music Hall in May 2000 and the first show in Tokyo, Japan in June 2000. I almost had to pay big bucks for a scalped ticket to the NYE Reunion but lucky for me I scored a ticket at the last second via a trade. I gave up two nights in Hampton 2003 for NYE at MSG.

Let's hope I get some good ticket karma coming my way.

9:45am... In position. Listening to Roses Are Free from Big Cypress.

10:04am.... I got this messages: "Sorry, no exact matches were found, but other tickets may still be available." Getting back in line.

10:12am... Tried for single tickets. Got denied. I had an issue with one the verification code. It wouldn't come up!

10:18am... Looks like my entire crew got shut out. Luckily I play a lot of poker and will try to win enough money over the next four or so months to be able to afford outrageous scalper/broker prices. For any of you faux-Phisheads selling tickets for an ungodly profit... well I hope you get anal herpes and die.


No tickets for you silly potheads!

10:54am... I lost $40 so far today playing online poker. In my quest to earn money for Operation Phish Reunion Tickets... I'm already in the hole. Awesome way to start.

11:01am... Yep, talked to the Joker. He feels as though he'll eventually get a ticket in the upcoming months. The guy is full of hope. My friend Lori from Kentucky and her crew were shut out. It seems as though everyone I know got proper fucked by Ticketbastard.

11:27am... PhantasyTour is down. The angry heads at PT have been spewing about their bad beats in the lottery and Ticketbastard and must have crashed the intertubes.

Early returns not promising - my local ticketmaster on campus doesn't sell any shows north of Georgia or west of Louisiana - at least that what the guy is telling me. Who knows, I had to spell p-h-i-s-h for him three times... It's 9:50 AM, here comes the longest 10 minutes of the day.. Remember, don't hit refresh too many times OR ELSE !!!

I tried. For some reason my computer wouldn't show the words for the security check! By the time I got it to play the fucking sounds (30 seconds in itself) it was all over...

Gotta love how the "Tickets Now-- a Tickemaster Company" prices go up by the minute as we keep trying in vain...

Sean said...

one of my words was wilson... denied, what is the reasoning behind nobody getting tickets? Is it just impossible for the average person to get ticketmaster to work for them?

WTF. I have talked to a few people and I do not know anyone who got tickets through the lottery or ticketmaster. BAHHHHH. Do you guys no anyone that got ticks or did acetickets ect scoop all of them

That was bullshit! the security codes not coming up right away... did you notice whenever that happened it was asking for a "Password" I wonder how many promo codes and passwords were handed out! Phish should go back to the old school mail order... remember when you had to put your doniac schviesh code in and send different money orders for each show!
I used to wait in line a ticketbastard for weeks before the dead shows. you had to show up every few hours for role call and we all partied. it was a great way for heads to get together and fairly get tickets. pauly if you buy 500 dollar tickets you are contributing to the fucks who are

Dudes, I told you in the comments of "Denied, Part 1" :

This is a big HOAX. There are no Hampton shows!

The boys broke up the band at Coventry. I was there when Page broke down during Velvet Sea. You don't fake that emotion if you're just going to be The Eagles and get back together when you need some cash, yeah?

Sorry you all didn't get the tix.... maybe you'll get tickets when Fleetwood Mac reunites for the 33rd time.
