Tickets to the general public went on sale at 10 AM this morning. And a large number of fans came up empty, despite being online with a credit card in a holster right on time.
So what happened?
Two things: 1) Tickets were limited. Only about 2,200 tickets were released to the general public. And between fans, scalpers and anyone else trying to get them, that’s not a lot. You know, supply and demand and right now, the demand is pretty darn high. 2) Online ticketing isn’t perfect. One person emailed in saying they scored a pair of tickets almost 30 minutes after they went on sale? Why? Because the horde of fans were on at 10 AM, “reserved” tickets but didn’t actually make it all the way through to purchase confirmation. So that ticket was opened back up. This happens all the time. So I’d say keep checking periodically. I scored sixth row tickets to a sold out concert once literally eight hours before the show.
Regardless, it’s a little disturbing to hear stories of a person being on at 10 AM sharp, looking for only ONE ticket only to come up without anything. Even with demand so high, 2,200 tickets isn’t nothing. There should be one seat somewhere 15 seconds after 10 AM. Right? Here’s the deal: Season ticket members got first dibs. Clever marketing by the Thunder because talk about incentive for folks to buy season tickets next year. You want Western Conference Finals tickets? Too bad, shoulda had season tickets. Keep Reading…
