You do realize that stubhub doesn't sell a single ticket themselves, right?

I think stubhub is owned by Live Nation though.

Stubhub is the middle man for me to sell to you or vice versa (they take a cut on both transactions). Sure, scalpers and even scalper companies use them, but they (stubhub) aren't the ones with the tickets.

meh, maybe even dumb luck. that they were all on hold near instant (first few seconds) but a couple browsers crashed out or such and it took a few minutes of bouncing between sold out, and 1-2 tickets available before the official sell out.

I never saw the quantity button on Firefox, get on internet explorer and it's the first thing I see. I don't call that dumb luck, I call that a bad browser or browser setting...or bad html on front gate's end.

All the people that got through have their tickets on stubhub now...the quantity grows each time I reload the page (and the price goes down by a few bucks). Don't forget about the 10% service charge on the price that you see though...the price you see is not the price that you pay.

560 tickets available...WOW!

Everyone's a scalper these days.

How is Mardi Gras World as a music venue? How is the sound? Hopefully nothing like the Sugarmill.

I refreshed right at 10 and was able to have an option on 4 tickets. I chose 2 and had no problem.


Tried to get back on for a friend three minutes later and they were sold out.


Crazy that tickets go so fast these days. Really sucks for people who can't get to the internet during the day.

All of this! Does anyone know?

This would have been a good show to have at UNO...heck, they are already playing the woodlands, UNO is about half that size.
