We don't know what our limits are, so to start something with the idea of being limited actually ends up limiting us.

Anyone got a fan club code I can use to get two tickets?? You know, if there are any left any more …

Fan club presale sold out instantly. Tried at 10am yesterday and no go. Thankfully my buddy just got me a ticket with Amex presale, so if you have an amex you may have luck. But that was an hour and half ago…

Yeah, I read that the Tdot shows sold out, but was hoping there were a few "fan club" presale seats left for a Van show. Don't have an amex any more, so I'll have to see if there's even a single seat left for the general sales on Friday. Unlikely.

Nice to see that stub hub has tickets by the fist full to sell though not.

They did add a second show for Tuesday, so it might be easier to get a regular sale ticket than you think.

Past appointees to the order of Canada include notable scumbags Conrad Black, Garth Drebinsky and Alan Eagleson. Gord does not seem so out of line as an appointee in that company. Poets and writers are often appointed, even somewhat obscure ones so Gord doesn't seem so out of line. Not sayin' he should necessarily be appointed, but not so sure about the 'emberrasment' bit.

Good points. Gordon Lightfoot is in there. So I think this Gord would also fit in nicely.

CBC afternoon show about ticket sales and resellers. seems there's a big scheme of remarketing these by online scalpers. i know nothing about it as i don't go to shows anymore but apparently this is a huge issue. Bob Dylan cancelled a show due to online ticket resellers they said.

I don't get how it works…the huffpost story suggested pre-sales sold out too quick to be legit

http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2016/05/30/tragically-hip-presale-tickets_n_10214130.html

But music journalist Alan Cross said "something really stinks" after presale tickets sold so quickly.

but what does that mean…members of the fan club immediately put them up to StubHub?

edit: I've never heard of StubHub before this story

well it seemed from the story or the twitter links people were blaming stubhub for it, but just seems that "fans" are taking advantage to the whole Gord thing. whatever it is, yeah pretty shitty
