    All tickets sold out already? ! Wow. I really wanted to go :/

  • Jacob Reach

    wouldn’t you know it, tickets are availible at horribly inflated prices on third party websites.

    • Daniel Vaughn

      Sad, but inevitable. Where have you seen them?

      • Jacob Reach

        Well I first noticed the person selling VIP for $550 each on Craigslist when I was thinking about getting VIP tickets as a present for my Dad. I actually had 2 VIP tickets on hold in my cart at opening time thinking about it, but didn’t check out with them! I only got my two regular admission. Then I went to Stubhub, which had 30 tickets on sale from $175-250 each.

        • Jacob Reach

          I just realized that at the VIP price, a person could just get the Traverssa deal and get a free room and not have to buy from a horrible person. My hope is that none of these tickets get sold, because that is 40 people who won’t be in line at the actual event.

    I have 2 tickets I’ll sell at face value
