The Forum pre-sale will remain open until the regular sale begins or until our allocation sells out. Whatever tickets from our allocation that aren't sold will be made available in the public sale.
Often times people complain that they are not offered the best seats when they sign on to Ticketmaster. Then 15 minutes later a great seat will come up. Here is an explanation of why this is happening:
Ticketmaster has a queue that allows people five minutes to hold their locations before deciding to purchase. Sometimes when the pre-sale starts, there is an initial rush as everyone selects all available tickets in the first few rows. Since there are only a couple hundred available, it is likely that they will all go into the queue. So if you sign on a few minutes late, it will appear that all best seats are unavailable. If each person makes the decision to buy the first seats they selected, the seats in the first few rows will sell out very fast. If people decide to keep shopping, they will release the seats back into the system. That is why some of those seats in the first few rows seem to come available 10-15 minutes after the on sale started.
