Concert not until next Oct, and PreRelease tickets only went on sale today. But I panicked because I couldn't get the PreRelease tickets. All gone in less than 20 mins.

Have I been very stupid? I paid way over the odds.

Please reassure me this usually turns out OK!

As far as I know it usually turns out a disaster, most of these sites are notorious for scamming are they not?
Good luck I hope that's not the case, but if you've used paypal or similar I'd be cancelling it!

What website did you use? Was it a ticket marketplace like StubHub or viagogo? They usually have some guarantees.

It will depend on the website. Or the seller if it's eBay or similar. When do the non pre-release tickets come out? Can you return the pre-release ones?

I've used Get Me In a couple of times and it's been fine.

If it's the one I'm assuming it is, normal tickets aren't even on sale till Saturday!

Where did you buy them from?

The pre-sale tickets became available today and you could buy a max of 6 tickets per person per card, I presumed some people would buy them specifically for re-sale so it might be ok.

Obviously I'm making an assumption as to which concert it is.

I used GoEventTickets. There is guarantee. Tickets or money back plus 20% discount on next tickets.
But my children would be beyond disappointed if we don't get tickets.

My stomach is in knots.
I probably could cancel tomorrow. But I may not get tickets on Saturday...

There was a limit of 4 today.

LingHamStyle you probably have the right concert. And that is what I'm banking on.

I think the limit on tickets was dependent on which venue you were booking for.

If it seems a reputable site then it should all be ok. I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

All's well. My tickets arrived in the post yesterday. Yay.
