I am having this problem too, I can not find anything on Ticketmaster, and even edge102.com had no information earlier today so I am guessing it will be a last minute thing.

It's listed on LiveNation.

Yeah I was able to find that but it still seems like it only has the public sale and no mention of a presale...

If anyone can shed some light, it would be great :)

Wait till tomorrow. I'm sure it'll be on Ticketmaster since the pre-sale tickets go on sale Wed. Don't fret my pet. ;) :p :D

I am waiting for the link to be emailed to me, and still nothing, this is the day before the presale for Toronto tickets and I am getting worried. Checked Ticketmaster, nothing, and I am beginning to panic. Any new info out there that I may have missed?

SweetTatyana
04-07-2009, 09:09 AM
Yeah I know I wish they would put it up on Ticketmaster already!! You can't buy tickets off LiveNation can you? (Sorry I'm a newbie to that site)

But anyway, I wish you all luck tomorrow and we all see eachother in the pit come July 2nd :D

Mike_911
04-07-2009, 09:20 AM
It will be up before 4 tomorrow.. Sometimes Ticketmaster is slow.. If you want to be in the pit then make sure you select "LEVEL 100 - GENERAL ADMISSION STANDING" on Ticketmaster or your chances of getting floor/pit tickets won't be good.

m-mcgregor
04-07-2009, 09:45 AM
Thank you for the information. I have been reassured. Oh, I am not sure about being in the pit. It has been a while for me, I'm 36, and not sure how it is. Will I be squished or kicked in the head? My friend is short, will she see anything? Or am I better off slightly higher up? If so, what section would that be in?

Section 200 (seated) is right behind the floor/pit and it is higher than the pit so you have a better view. You can still stand at the back of the pit but you might have a better view in the seats.

http://www.ticketmaster.ca/event/1000427FE9EEAAD8?artistid=753206&majorcatid=10001&minorcatid=60 is the link for tickets. $22.50 for level 400 seats. That is dirt cheap. $49.50 for pit/closer seats.

Yep, I just checked an old email address that I forgot I had registered for the mailing list. Password is "Hammerhead".

Ya I had a account here but it would not let me back into it... So i had to make a new one and now I dont have the code or anything...

So I just go to LiveNation to get the pre sale or will Ticketmaster also have a pre sale?

Hey guys,

I'm still waiting for my email to get the link for the presale in Toronto...i have the first two other emails with links and passwords to the other shows, but of course the one i want to go to hasnt been sent to me yet.

does anyone know if theirs a problem with the mailing list? anyways, if someone does have the link for the Toronto show can they please send it to me or post it or sumthin? I had the choice to come see either the offspring or metallica (for me it was an easy choice with the offspring) but i dont wanna get stuck in a crappy seat.....any help would be awesome!

cheers!

The GA capacity is 1,000, but I highly doubt the offspring's presale includes all those tickets. Probably only a few dozen. Ticketmaster wants to keep those tickets for themselves. Hopefully we'll get GAs, but more likely 200s.

Pre sale only has a certain amount of tickets and the others are for the normal on sale time.

riseandfall2009
04-08-2009, 12:50 PM
i dont know if its the same for the offspring but for def leppard at the molson amphitheatre, the whole pit area was reserved for fan club presale only.

Mike_911
04-08-2009, 01:04 PM

You had to select general admission floor or the odds of them coming up aren't good. I still see you can buy floor tickets. You might wanna call Ticketmaster and cancel your tickets and say you can get better ones. I've done this before.

SweetTatyana
04-08-2009, 01:05 PM
Yeah Mike_911 I got floor tickets too!! See you in the pit :D

How did everyone else fare?

It's a very selective presale; lots of people planning on going to the show, won't be a part of the online community and thus wouldn't have access to the tickets yet.

I saw scalpers on Stubhub selling tickets back right after the show was officially announced and they said they were lawn tickets!!! They aren't even selling lawn tickets there! Someone could get scammed hardcore by that. I wish there was a contact so I could e-mail the person and be like "lawn tickets eh?"

I am hoping this show does really well for them. When they played the ACC back in 2000 only about 5000 people showed up and the venue seemed so empty. only about about 2/3s of the lower bowl was filled.

Did anyone here go to the Opera House show in 2003? No barricade and only about 800 in a small venue. One of the best shows I've ever seen.

No :(. I wanted to go badly, but I didn't check my e-mail in time when they sent the "First 100 people get tickets" e-mail, and all attempts to call the Edge were fruitless. A buddy of mine got 2 tickets through that e-mail, but took someone else... Oh well, at least I got to meet Dexter and Noodles that day at the Edge studio!

Seeing as the standing area capacity is only 1000 at MA, maybe the vibe of this show for those of us in the pit will be somewhat similar (even though the rest of the place is huge)? The 2004 show at the Kool Haus had about 2-3000 people I think? So, compared to that, even those at the back of the GA area should be pretty close to the stage.

Mike_911
04-08-2009, 08:19 PM
You could also win on offspring.com back then if you put Toronto in as your location when signing up to try and win tickets.

I was at the Edge that day too.

Did everyone get pit tickets?

I believe the e-mail that I got was from the offspring.com mailing list, and I had entered Toronto as the location when I signed up for it. Are you talking about something different?

Yeah, I got me a pit ticket. The only time I watched a rock band from a seat was at the Weezer show at ACC last year, and since then I believe that it's either GA or nothing lol (maybe unless the seats are REALLY close to the stage).

it was on the front page of the site and if you put Toronto in as your location you probably would have won.

That Weezer show was good. Blink and Weezer are doing a tour together later this year.
