Hello fellow fans,
I have a question/solicitation for advice. I've posted a bit about ticket purchasing before. I must not really know what I'm doing. Here's the scenario: Bought tickets for the Rose Music center CC show on 9/8/15 THE MINUTE they went on sale. I bought the best seats I could in the "normal" ($68/ea. - $175/pair after fees) range. I noticed that the first 4 rows were meet and greet @ $150 ea. -- I sorta knew they wouldn't be able to sell those all and would eventually discount them. I heard from someone on here that ticketmaster/livenation will exchange for better seats if they become available, so no worries on my part.
FastForward to this morning, I get an email from Rose that select tickets were on sale for $15. This prompted me to go and look at the rest of the tickets and lo and behold, there are seats better than mine, now for sale for the same price. I called Ticketmaster and they said they couldn't exchange them. He told me it was up to Rose Music center and rose wouldn't allow it. I called Rose and they told me Ticketmaster had a "No Exchange, No Refund" policy.
So my question/sought advice is: What the heck am I doing wrong? I Just want the best seats to see my favorite band.
In Summer 2013, I got tickets on Groupon to see them. In Summer 2014, they were friggin sold out all around me within a short time of going on sale. Now in Summer 2015, I buy tickets early just to find out that had I waited, I would have gotten BETTER seats...
What gives? What am I doing wrong here? And is there anything I can do 5 days till the show to snag some of the better seats w/o having to try to resell mine (that obviously won't sell when there's better ones available).
Thanks for any inputs or sympathies!!
