    I finally see what you guys mean about scalpers and how that is a bad thing. When I looked for my Selena Gomez tickets they were 150 bucks on Ticketmaster and some other site they had. Ridiculous, I saw Miley for 100 last year, but I was on the floor. Saw Demi couple weeks ago for 15. After researchin a little, I found the venue website. The ticket I got was 36 bucks, and I am only 27 rows back, center stylie.

    Scalpers suck.....

    they tried to like quadruple her price.....
    OH! and they only sell if you buy two......????
    What part of the game is that!?

    36 bucks, thats whussuppers

    What's wrong with Scalpers? It's capitalism at its finest. Buy low, sell high. Create a low supply to create high demand, and therefore justify its increase in price. It's not price gouging if the party doesn't have a relationship with the owners of the goods.

    Just being sarcastic, thought there is truth to it. But I pass on fools who does that. I miss out, but I least I don't give them the benefit of receiving my money.

    I go to the box office in person whenever possible. Cut out the middleman so I can take the wife out to dinner with the savings. Plus I work downdown, walking distance from any venue I frequent, so it's both dumb and lazy for me to hit up a scalper.

    Good job and enjoy the show.

    ...you paid $100 to see Miley Cyrus? Paid? You sure you didn't mean "was given" instead?

    The question really is "you PAID to see Miley Cyrus?"

    I know, I just said that. I think he meant to say he was given $100 to see her.

    Even that's a stretch, but my mind can't handle it the other way.

    I know. It would take a lot to PAY me to see it. Maybe $100 directed towards me and I will go

    I just googled the other two chicks he was talking about and frankly, I'm a bit mortified.

    What 29-year-old man seeks out (and pays scalper prices for) mickey mouse club teenybopper concerts? Unless there's a daughter dragging him to them, I can't fathom it.

    These words made me extremely disinterested in your dilemma: "Selena Gomez, Miley, Demi"

    I'm really hoping he has a kid, perhaps just to help me sleep at night. HONESTLY

    I'm honestly terrified of this user.... for his sake, others, and surprisingly, Mile Cyruses.
