Those Bethel prices are ridiculous. $350 for shitty pavilion seats. I wouldn’t pay $350 to sit up front. These will not sell and will drop to $99 in the days leading up to the shows. That’s what they’re worth.

More ticket shenanigans going on for the Cincinnati show. The huge glut of Platinum tickets that magically appeared in the 400 Section a few days ago are now all gone, and now there's a few full rows of Platinums in another section. There's zero chance they sold several dozen $500 tickets this week.

I don't even care what they charge anymore. Just put all the fucking tickets up at once and end this nonsense. If people are halfway paying attention they know what's going on and they're not going to drop a grand for 2 mediocre pavilion seats.

Right! And i even got an email from ticketbastard about riverbend events that said LOW TICKET ALERT in red next to the Dead and Co date. Ok…. Now they’re just straight up lying. Lol such bullshit

Today the rear pavilion tickets dropped to $150. Give it a few more weeks and they will hit $99.

It's all a big game. Ticketmaster and the like create an illusion to get the most $$$ they can.

Just wait it out. Week of the show it'll all fall apart.

I don’t mean to contradict anyone. I always wonder about the tickets when I get to the show and see the place packed. Obviously they fill the venues. So tickets are selling at some point.

I do believe most of the dead and co dates do not sellout. Correct?

They'll have the usual drops on Ticketmaster. And you always hear about people walking up to the ticket counter the day of and getting primo seats.

Some of these shows where you know it's a tough ticket (LA, Colorado, SPAC) could already be legit sold out. But I'm betting the vast majority of the tour will have plenty of tickets available in the coming weeks.

I can tell you Colorado is not sold out. I keep seeing tickets pop up here and there. Mostly VIP tickets though and “resale”.

So I've been checking Raleigh (6 days out) and no price drops yet. I thought it typically happened right around a week before the show, then each day or two after in sequence with the rest of the tour schedule. Hopefully this trend continues. I noticed that the "sold out" Raleigh lawns are going for $35 on Stubhub and will probably be $20 by the weekend.

Well, now the Raleigh map updated and shows some Platinums center stage 8 rows back. Those weren't there a few minutes ago. #ticketbastardwatch

I’m seeing them now. Those $285 Platinum tix will be $185-200 at any moment. Row P just popped up today. Those are the perfect seats imo.

I'd love those same seats for Cincinnati and St. Louis. I thought typically the Platinums would go to face value for a show this close, but TM may drag it along another day or two hoping someone will be surprised and snap up a pair of $300 tickets.
