Can't A Man Buy Some Tickets?

I've been increasingly frustrated these days trying to buy concert tickets. I've attempted twice to buy for nin, and once for U2, to no avail. They're sold out after less than 5 minutes via the Internet.

How the hell are people getting tickets to these shows? Are most given to radio stations, and only ten are actually available for the public? These shows tend to go on sale during the week, so the tried and (sometimes) true method of waiting on line isn't an option for those of us who actually work for a living.

I'll be damned if they're going to keep me from Ozzfest/Maiden and Priest though.

At least you had a chance, miniscule as it may have been. All of the bands worth seeing are skipping the South these days. Bastards.

Have you looked at the secondary market (eBay and the like)? Sure, you're getting raped - but you'll get to see the show.

I don't like paying excessive amounts for tiks that may not even turn out to be real (just don't trust people selling scalped tiks). And U2 prices have to be thru the roof.
