Getting tickets for the Red Tour?

Tue, Jan 29, 2013 at 2:53 PM

Hey everyone!

I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with buying tickets on stubhub or from a second party. I tried to get tickets when they went on sale, but I was out of luck!

So now, I'm trying to find some tickets on stubhub. I have $200 that I can afford to spend on each ticket, and I really want to get on the floor or in the 100's. For the atlanta concert I want to go to, prices are really high for floor seats (like $275 each).. The concert is in April.

So do prices on Stubhub usually go down as the concert approaches, and if so, when do they go down? And has anyone here had luck finding tickets on the Ticketmaster website right before the concert? I would LOVE to go!

Thanks so much!

    Peple keep saying that ticketmaster releases more tickets a few weeks before thew concert, but i dint know if its true.
    Also try to win via radio contests, my local radio station gives out alot, but its still hard.
    Since all the tickets on stubhub are owned by the scalpers its hard to say when the prices will go down njust make sure if you are going to buy them on Stubhub you give the person selling enough time to mail them to you so they dont come too late.

    They can release entire sections! Especially side view ones.

    I have had luck going the day of the concert and getting lower level tickets that they had reserved for the bands family and etc. Also I might have an extra ticket if you want check back with me later. I dont know if the person i'm supposed to go with will be able to fly in or not.

    ok ive bought tickets on stubhub before! here's what to do

    WAIT. people get desperate as a concert gets closer, so prices drop as the concert approaches!!
    KEEP CHECKING TICKETMASTER. they ALWAYS release seats before a show!!
    DO NOT BUY FROM ANY WEBSITE THAT ISNT GUARANTEED EVER. E V E R. they will screw you over and you'll end up out a lot of money with nothing.
    seatgeek.com is amazing. worship it. use it. love it. check the website for a guarantee before buying! stubhub is 100% guaranteed real tickets

    They do usually go down, I've bought them this way a couple times. Taylor's don't drop as much as other artists but they do drop. Also check ticketmaster each morning leading up to the show as they do tend to put more on sale closer to the date once stage dimensions and everything are set. I've gotten great seats for other artists that way.

    More tickets are sometimes released the day before or the day of the concert via Ticketmaster. I have never purchased from stubhub or any other secondary place, but based on friends experiences I don't believe they go down, and if they happen to, I don't think it's by much. When it's someone as popular as Taylor Swift, where the shows sell out instantly, they don't normally have a problem selling their tickets at the normal price they put them online for. If anything, they can probably get away with upping the price since people will shell out the money for her.

    I'm trying to buy tickets for another show I want to go to from StubHub (the Lexington show) and from what I have heard from other people, it's a reliable source, but the tickets are usually overpriced! This is all I know about it!


    Thanks Tanya!!!!
