Check out this Ad: I love how he is a "real fan" just trying to help out another "real fan" by selling a balcony seat for $250.00. Nice.

"1 Allman Brothers tickets 3/18 VERY REAL not a scam - $250 (LOWER BALC ROW D)
I have on single seat for Tuesday 3/18. Great view in the lower balcony row D. I am a fan who just can't make the show because i am going with friends to the 3/19 show the next night. I have already been to one show this run and (they have been on fire) and i am going to the 3/25 show as well.

Its is a genuine Hard ticket and not a computer printout. Please include your email address when replying. The first person to offer $250 for the ticket gets it (very fair price) Check stubhub there
are no lower balcony seats for this night and the very very few uppers are going for over $215 EACH.

Just a little FYI nobody is dumping tickets at the last minute for this run and the closer it gets
to the show they higher they are going.
The night i went people were paying $300 - $350 EACH for upper balcony seats. Also just for your own sake don't even bother trying the scalpers outside the beacon. I saw so many people getting turned away at the door with fake tix and running out to find the scalper.

I can met in the city or Brooklyn to do exchange. We could also do paypal if that makes you feel safer. But you would have to pay overnite shipping and paypal fees....

I am not a scammer i am a real fan looking to help out another fan. I will show you all my id
Drivers License and work id so you will have no worries that im just looking to take your money
and run.

Look forward to hearing from you and AGAIN please be serious and include you email address.

Scalpers are scum, especially the ones who pretend to be fans while raking cash off your "mutual" love of the band.

Exactly. Isn't it amazing when these ads say that only "real" fans need respond . . . . . as if a real fan would ever deal with dbag scalpers like him.

It's unfortunate because, up until this year, I was always able to both buy and sell (at face or below, never above) ABB Beacon tickets without much trouble on CL. Now - you can spot the fake ads a mile away.

At this point, I would only buy an extra from someone on this forum.

Yes, I'm so stupid I bought 2 upper Balc for $300 a piece, such an ass... I just had to go but man when I checked on day of the show on stubhub the orchestra was below face value... Of course this was 3 hours before the show...

I also paid $150 for an upper balcony a $60 ticket!! I won though because I suck into lodge then jumped in an empty east for intermission that was apparently a NY Time's reporter who left after 2 songs, lodge row A dead center for the whole 2nd set so I got my $$ worth for all the ripp offs I paid

You're not the only one who paid too much for tickets. I paid $280 each for two Loge row G tickets for the 3/29 show. I bought the tickets on ebay about a month ago as I wanted to make sure I had tickets before booking a flight. We only go around once, so if the 29th really is the last ABB Beacon show forever, then the memories of being there will be priceless.
