Briefly: Phish Red Rocks Tickets Onsale

Sometime near 8PM, Ticketmaster put their allotment of four day passes to Phish’s just announced Red Rocks concerts up for sale nearly a week before the announced onsale date of March 26. Either Phish just came up with an incredibly inventive way to beat the scalpers – the sneak attack, or Ticketmaster screwed up. It remains to be seen whether Ticketmaster will honor the orders placed today. Let us know if you scored tickets.

UPDATE: Commenter Noah looked up the Ticketmaster Contract of Service and found this language…

If the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted on this web site or otherwise communicated to you, or you are able to order a ticket before its scheduled on-sale or presale date or you are able to order a ticket that was not supposed to have been released for sale, then: Ticketmaster will have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid. This will apply regardless of whether because of human error or a transactional malfunction of this web site or other Ticketmaster operated system.

UPDATE 1:03AM: I just checked the status of my order and it was cancelled. It was fun while it lasted, but Ticketmaster exercised their right to cancel the orders as per their Contract of Service.

    “if phish cancel’s my tickets, i will be severely pissed off, and honestly think about hating, you, phish…
    just an fyi…don’t be dicks.”

    Your an idiot. Im glad your tickets were cancelled.

    A REAL Phish phan would understand that like eveyone, phish are people, people make mistakes.
    A REAL Phish phan would realize that there are TONS of people that want these tickets and that it must be FAIR.
    A REAL Phish phan would be SO happy that Phish is back together and playing red rocks that even if they couldnt get a ticket, they would be exited for those lucky few.

    You sound like a GREEDY TOUR RAT!!!!!!!!

    Instead of playing their balls off for 2 days at Coventry…Phish were crying like little girls and played some of the worst shows I’ve seen. Now they’re back, because they were 2 sad they weren’t making any money anymore (except, maybe Trey)

    I just know the Last Waltz was AWESOME! The Band kicked ass–had a great time and walked off strong. WTF happened with Phish? Now it costs 2K to see them? I’m sure they’re are plenty of folks with farms that would love to have them and all they’re fans and help bring in much needed money to rural America. F Ticketmaster. F Greed.
