Did anyone in Ireland actually get an LCD soundsystem ticket? The answer appears to be no and yet…

After over an hour of trying through various means, think it’s finally time to accept defeat in the battle to secure LCD Soundsystem tickets

Fruitless attempts to secure tickets for LCD Soundsystem at the Olympia Theatre.
I think this is an Olympia thing too btw
Meself and Heartbroken Anon tried to get Erasure tickets
Any night any type
Reports last week of a Dublin based organised criminal organisation have managed to code a bot that ‘buys’ the tickets, creating a false demand and gouging those willing to pay above face value for them thus creating a nice profit for nothing…
People just need to stop buying the tickets when gouging is obvious – sure, a few millionaire artists will be temporarily peeved when their concerts are cancelled
Booking fees are gone mad.
And I think LCD Soundsystem are overrated #sorrynotsorry
Be interesting to know how many of the 1600 were publicly available in the 1st place.
Just saw them here in sydney. Great gig so keep trying to get tickets if you can. They even played new unreleased material.
I like/don’t like/blabla LCD Soundsystem but isn’t the whole concert ticket racket controlled by a handful of scumbag touts that can’t be stopped ever, even by god or the law or the Avengers?
the conspiracy theorists are out in force again, a very popular band are playing a small venue, sure some touts got tickets but the main reason is demand > supply
and being on the site at 8.50 means nought as the system only opens at 9am, there is no queue
i didn’t get tickets either but that’s life
Just because you didn’t get a ticket doesn’t mean no one did. On Boards a fair few are saying they got tickets.
It’s a small venue and even at 3 nights it’s not enough to meet demand. A lot less touts too as the name of the purchaser is printed on all tickets and they will have to walk in together. Doesn’t completely eliminate the touts but cuts out a large proportion of the casual tout.
They did an investigation into the same thing happening in new york. Apparently they really did just sell out that fast. I still have a feeling though there’s more that could be done. At the very least that seatwave thing should be shuttered. Very much a conflict of interest.
Pat Hickey has them all in case you’re wondering..
I’m a bit peeved cos at 9.01 the system offered me 3 standing tickets, countdown clock said I had 2 mins to accept, ten seconds later I clicked accept and it told me to start again. grrrrrr
Didn’t they have a “farewell show”? Seen em before anyway, they’re grand, that’s about it
And to think, Smithers: you laughed when I bought TicketMaster. “Nobody’s going to pay a 100% service charge.”
Well, it’s a policy that ensures a healthy mix of the rich and the ignorant, sir.
One day a band came to town.
They made a song called ‘Irish’.
Part of the lyrics went like this;
‘James Murphy is their chief, they show their bollocks when they eat..
I can’t remember the name of the band but they have a new album out today..
v excited to give new album proper listen. just been skipping though it but sounds great.
Sure let us know when any new facts emerge, Memes (titter)
