i bought my concert tickets on the auction and paid a pretty penny for them, which is my choice..... but i noticed that some of the pit seats are now going for $200.00. I will be mighty pissed if i find out that people got better seats than i for less money, i don't know if that is going to be the case but i was on ticketmaster today and 8 row in the pit are going for $200.00 any ideas or thoughts? I bought before tickets went on sale to the public thinking i would get better seats, if that is not the case i have bought my last tickets

It happens all the time. I can say just about every show is that way. Sorry to say but you will see people closer for cheaper. Sucks I know but it is what it is. Go and have a good time. There is really nothing you can do at this point. Sorry.

getting cheaper is really dependent on the venue.... NMS was not selling for cheaper, they dropped the packages but not less than 500 or 350 in the pit. Same for other east coast locations, really is about the market for prices dropping.

in my humble opinion, they should upgrade my seats before giving out the prime seats to just whoever

HA HA HA - sorry, I couldnt help but laugh because I am in EXACTLY the same position you are for Edmonton! I got my pit seats thru the Ticketmaster auction back in December and was pretty smug about my Pit 3 Row 4 seats UNTIL I checked the website last week - they are going for $175 each - some of them in row 2! I paid $400 each for mine. Needless to say I am pissed as well. I think the problem is that Jovi just doesnt draw the crowd here like they do other places - especially a large stadium show. They arent moving as fast as they'd like so now they're dropping prices big time!

Note to self - wait until two weeks prior to concert date before buying tickets :(

Being that you got your tickets through the auction, you had to put in the value you put on the tickets.

Prime seats are in the eye of ticketholder. Personally I wouldn't want to be front row in a stadium due to the height of the stage. But someone else may not have a problem with that.

My suggestion is don't buy tickets unless that is the seat you want to sit in and the price you want to pay. Tickets are always released randomly, but like I said before sometimes you can get lucky and sometimes you can get shutout.

i agree and had we not won the auction we would have bought vip anyway, but ticketmaster says that they were unable to sell vip when i called to get an idea of the layout of the stage, they also said they didnt' have a layout of the stage, at that time. Anyway i have no problem with selling tickets to fill the pit,but i think my tickets should be upgraded to closer better seats just like they do on airlines.
