    I heard about ticket resale for a little while now, decided to actually try it myself just recently. Wish there was a bit more activity on the site so decided to start this thread.

    Seems to me that once you learn the basics of how to buy/sell tickets the real expertise of flipping tickets is knowning what/who sells out and what doesn’t. This is clearly a very broad field, people specialize in different things, and it takes a long time to learn the ins and out of each market/city/venue. So what would be really amazing is a thread where people share their experience of what/who usually or always sells out and is essentially a good bet. To add some sort of a useful format to it maybe list the info below as well.

    – Entertainer’s name (singer, band, event, sports teams, etc.)
    – Venue / City
    – How often they sell out concerts
    – How quickly they sell out concerts
    – Average price of ticket at face value
    – Average price of ticket at resale value

    As I said I only just started so I don’t have much to add to others myself yet. I just bought a pair of Billy Joel tickets at Madison Square Garden at face value. Given previous concerts at this venue always sell out it seemed like a safe bet, their rear stage tickets though so might be some issues there, we’ll see how it goes, my thinking was rear stage 15 rows from stage is a lot better then nosebleed sits at same price.

    Great idea! And not just for concerts, sporting events and other big attractions would be great also. 🙂
