This is the first time I bought tickets to a BOK event and I am very disappointed. First of all there are companies that get to buy tickets before they go on sale to the general public so most good seats are gone. I started at 10 to try and get in and 3 times i got as far as securing the seats only to be bumped out and put back in waiting room and i need 3 together 5 mins after 10 it gave me the message that i could not get 3 together at any price level so I think this will be my last BOK experience. I did manage to get 3 single tickets and it was about 11:30 so I dont see how they sold out in an hour?

I was at the BOK Center at 4:30 this morning to get tickets. I was able to get the tickets I needed on the floor right next to the stage so there good seats available. The staff at the arena were very nice and admitted before the tickets went on sale that not everyone who was in line would get tickets.

Usually it's the local radio stations that buy them up so that they can give them away as part of a promotion. Sucks, but what can you do?

Yea I can't even keep up with who is coming when but I know trying to get the tickets suck! The one time we tried what we could afford or was willing to pay was like so far back I would need those opera glasses..lol

Re: "Whoever" Radio stations don't buy them, they get them in trade as part of the advertising done on their station for that particular concert. In addition they agree to have the "meet and greets", goodies and other stuff for that concert. So let's face it for this concert, there are only probably 4 stations getting the "buys". I doubt you will be hearing KMOD or The Edge advertising this concert in the slightest! They are not the big grabbers of the tickets, look way up over them to the internet ticket scalpers.

While I have George Strait and Reba albums and I like the way thay sing, there is no way that I am going to pay an outrageous price for tickets to watch millionaires perform.

Part of my county sales taxes went to and still goes to the building of the BOK Center.

We who are on poverty level government pensions can't even afford to go to events in a building we helped pay for.

I bought tickets, this week, for the Globetrotters, and received passes to a pregame event. The only gave them to people who came in to office to make their purchase. There was only about 30 people at this pregame event. It was very fun, very entertaining. I kind of feel sorry for those who bought online. Only nasty thing I can say is about the parking companies that gouge the people that attend these events. Everybody pays cash, so there's no telling how much profit those low life parking lot owners are making and not puting that tax income back into the city.

Oh, for cryin' out loud. If you are at poverty level, you clearly didn't contribute much in sales tax money. You can't go looking for a handout from the BOK Center simply because you cannot afford the events. Plenty of people are able to afford the prices. The artist and promoters have found their target market that can afford these event. Don't place blame on the rest of the world if you are not in this target market. If you have made choices that have put you in a lower income bracket, make some changes in your life! Don't blame the world around you for finding success if you haven't found it yourself. There have been several open house events free to the public at the BOK Center.

Reba is to music what Carrot Top is to comedy. no talent, but somehow still working. I have yet to meet anyone that enjoys anything that Reba does. Keep having plastic surgery, hack.

Then walk a little, we went to the globetrotters, paid 4 bucks for parking across from the courthouse and walked 3 short blocks. it was actually a very nice walk. our first time to the BOK Center, i was very impressed, it is a very nice facility!

The next time a concert is announced, if you really want to go, go to that artists website and become a member of their fan club. Lots of them offer presale tickets to their fans before the public.

Hooligan all I can say about you is your a ass you must think you are better than anybody else. I am not poor and I CAN afford the price of tickets to this event BUT I could not get the online ticket sale to work and I started at 10:05am and I sure as hell am not paying someone who was able to buy tickets so they could scalp them for a inflated price. Im with Joe though about the price of these tickets now days $91 PLUS fees is a ripp off already. Does it really cost that much to put on a concert I remember when concerts were to promote sales of records.

But for you to put down someone that lives on fixed income is just wrong. I bet in Joes day he payed plenty of tax to pay for your education and maybe even your mothers and fathers. Like I said before your an ass!

How rude can you be to a vetern that fought for YOUR freedom to be a jack a**?!! I agree the prices are very expensive! I love the BOK and have been to several great shows, but, everytime I always think of those that want to go but can't afford to!! There does need to be affordable shows especially for families!!

I wanted tickets to this SO bad. My father LOVED Reba. As he lay dying in ICU late one night, early morning, at 2 am or so, I had the channel turned to CMT. Reba came on and I said, Hey Dad, there's your woman. His nurse, Big Bill said nah, that's MY woman. I said she's been Dads for years hasn't she Daddy? He nodded his head yes. It was the last movement he made before he died a few days later. I think of him everytime I hear her. I wanted so bad to be able to share this with him, even if only in my heart. She is such a classy lady, always so kind to people. He always said he knew how to pick his women, he had Moma and Reba. To be in that audiance and hear her sing songs in person, he would be there with me, one more time. Wish the money would have been there for me to at least try. All of you who were lucky enough to get tickets.... enjoy, and if you read this, send up a little smile to my Daddy please.
