I've booked tickets for the Wembley gig but with a pre-sale code, you go through seetickets, not gigs and tours. Dead simple - have you tried them instead?

It's a partial success I'd say...all the touts who signed up for the last presale would still have had active memberships for this one and got the codes. It'll be interesting to see how many tickets end up on ebay before the end of today. That's the way I'd measure how successful the pre-sale codes are.

Gigs and tours and seetickets are the same company.

I do not get why bands and artists seem to favor this company when it comes to pre-sales, since pretty much everyone (esp overseas) who buy tickets through them have trouble with their purchase..
Are they cheaper to deal with than others??

Gigs and tours r owned by See Tickets i think and they r really poor. Had a number of issues with my o2 tickets for muse and payment issues with Green Day at Wembley Stadium. Not to mention the teignmouth cock up.

Used them 3 times and they have fucked up 3 times. 4th time lucky. They proberbly turn around a say they have cancelled my tickets

I feel the next step to put off the touts is to either have a paid for fan club that gets you various goodies and exclusive pre-sale links (or the club buys a block allocation of tickets and flogs them internally), or go down the Glastonbury route with pre-registration and ID on the tickets.

Or another thought is to do as the touts do and arrange a large group of forum members with plenty of spare time and resources to hit the sites with a lot of PCs and browser windows, and buy up loads of tickets to be dished out to the forum for face value. Maybe people interested put money into a pot to pay for it all, and then they get as many as possible and dish out to those who have paid up front. Any money left is returned.

Sorry to be the smart arse, but the only problem I've had with See was with Wembley '07 tickets, and that was down to bad traffic, otherwise I've had pain free experiences ever since.

The Resistance tour was a doddle and so was Wembley and LCCC, I had my confirmation e-mail with me by 9.20 and the money was out of my account by the time I got home from my lectures and 12pm.

Obviously people have had bad experiences, but they're not all that bad.

Seetickets is my favourite site to use, I have never had any problems and find Ticketmaster makes actually buying and paying for the tickets quite stressful. With Seetickets you just select and pay, on Ticketmaster you have to fill in multiple pages each with a time limit! Also (although Ticketmaster may do this anyway) I get regular emails from See about the whereabouts of my tickets. I had absolutely no problems using them this morning to get my Manchester tickets so I'm chuffed to bits

Sorry to hear about anyone who is having issues.

None of these schemes will ever work, simply because demand exists for the tickets - even at silly prices.

The only way to stop touts is to not buy their tickets. No demand = no profits = touts on the dole.

Either that or to pressure to have a law passed stating face value only - make it illegal to resell at anything above face value. But that would be lobbied against very hard by the ticket sellers because of their own reselling sites.

This is the simplest and most obvious solution, but does anyone consider it? Do they fuck. It's all about the profit.

Ultimately, the touts are extracting every last penny of revenue out of the market.

The majority of people buy tickets at face value and obviously think it's worth it otherwise they wouldn't pay it.

The touts come along and take advantage of those who are willing to pay even more, but missed out at the original sale.

I wouldn't ever buy a ticket from a tout at twice the price of face value. But some people would - it's those morons who get over emotional about going to see three blokes piss about with guitars and shit that need their heads checking. 100 to see Muse? fuck me

Had some trouble ordering tickets today? Did you solve it?

I wonder whether someone experienced the same problems as me when ordering tickets today.

I am a Muse.mu user. I have been for quite some time. Before any pre-sale announcements. And most importantly in my user account I have a code for today's pre-sale!

But sadly, when I enter my code and Muse.mu username (in the correct boxes, using the right username, copying and pasting the code), I got a message saying my details could not be found on the database.

If anyone had the same problem, and magically solved it, please share how here.

I'm sure I'll get a ticket somehow, maybe tomorrow's mailing list pre-sale (although I only joined the mailing list today after failing as I mentioned above), and then there's Friday. We'll see...
