It's just the system. Ticketmaster release tickets in small batches which makes everyone who's excited and planning on going immediately go into survival mode to get tickets. Then they buy the max they can get because one of their friends might want to go or they get as many grouped together as they can. Then the show happens and even more tickets get release for what the band was holding and eventually people start flaking out and so the tickets just end up in the lot being sold by the people who didn't buy them so they really don't care if they sell or not.

I sold those tickets in 2009 and someone told me I was undercutting the market at $30 and needed to up my prices for all the other people selling.

yeah but it almost always results in tickets on the ground... as described.


Sure, but it still ends up working out for lots of people; so I don't see that trend changing.

From a scalper's perspective: they don't care if they have unsold tickets after the fact. They care if they make a profit (which I'm guessing they do).


Also, this can happen: a group of 4 wants to see Phish. They all put in for mail order for 4 tickets hoping that one of them hits (and assuming it's not GA, the ability to sit together). They all get lucky; and they end up with 16 tickets but only needing 4.
