Where have all the Buffett tickets gone?

Where have all the Buffett tickets gone?

Uncasville, Conn.– July 3, 2006 -- There was more disappointment outside the Mohegan Sun Arena than within, before the Jimmy Buffet show on June 29th.

Many ticket holders were left with tickets to sell, but with no takers.

Especially hard hit were ticket sellers who had Ticketfast tickets for the show.

One ticket seeker named Greg from Shelton, Conn. refused to buy Ticketfast Tickets. As he "didn't trust them."

Some attempts at selling $250 tickets for $50-$100 were made, but with no success. Many in the crowd blamed the Mohegan Sun who still had tickets remaining right up front.

Rick from Suffield, Conn. said the Sun was "holding the best tickets for the high-rollers" for whatever reason.

Kathy from Freehold, New Jersey, stated she was "angry that she had nosebleed seats" only to find out that there were closer seats left.

Just how many tickets were held from public sale is a mystery. The casino declined comment when questioned. One industry-insider who wished to remain anonymous stated that the number of choice tickets that were withheld from the public probably numbered into the thousands.

"The practice of withholding seats from the public is commonplace, but the amount and quality is becoming a problem," said Donald Vaccaro, president of TicketNetwork.com . "When a venue distributes seating charts for an event with the best tickets showing in order to stimulate sales, then removes those from the general publics’ allotment without telling them, the general public feels cheated … and rightly so."
