About 9500 tickets total.. definitely minutes.

I went to over a dozen shows last year & every gig bar one the touts had tickets available & 99% of the gigs sold out (in minutes too) so obviously do your best to get your tickets before the gigs but do not despair if you don't make it. If you check the marketplace there was folk on here trying to get shut of tix they'd got spare for most of the gigs as well.

ticketmaster is horrible when there are hundreds trying to buy tix. but its your best bet...be at the computer at the stroke of 10am and get all your friends to try at the same time for you...(only to make it worse though, huh?) :rolleyes:

The 2004 tour never really sold out...most venues had plenty of seats left even after they 'sold out'. Pasadena will probably move quickly, 'officially' sell out within a half hour, but then more tickets will come available hours later, or the next day.
Don't believe the myth that morrissey 'sells out' his shows within minutes these days. They release a certain amount at first just so they can print in newspapers that morrissey is a 10-minute sellout act. Also, 2004 tour...first come gets best seats was not the case at all. so keep trying throughout the day/week if you come out with shitty tickets or no tickets.
Now of course, this is the only show so far announced, so they may really sell out within minutes...i doubt it. either way, my point is to not give up too soon, even after they say tickets are no longer available.
Trust me. In 2004, many of us bought tickets, then repurchased when better seats became available in the weeks after. On the day of the NYC show, I saw ticketmaster selling Orchestra seats, including front row. And of course, at the show there were empty seats throughout the venue (a 6000 person venue, it was only 3/4's full), including in the orchestra pit. And yet this show 'sold-out' within a half hour. In my opinion, this technique of selling tickets like this, just to uphold the myth in the US that Morrissey sells-out within minutes, confused many casual Morrissey fans or people who wanted to go to a rock show, since they thought the shows 'sold out' (radio spots, posters, newspaper ads...all mentioned the shows 'sold-out'. And so morrissey played in front of small crowds, in big venues--thinking his US tour was a huge failure. I say Sanctuary was a huge failure. Jed was a huge failure.
NOIP...This is not a rant ;) ;)

it took a while for the chicago show to sell out.. and that was the "only us show this year!"..
i had no problem getting a ticket for the last LA show just a few days before the show. i don't remember the capacity for that place though in relation to this venue.

i dont even thinkthe 1st show in tulsa at cains sold out? the only reason this one might sell out a little faster is because its in california imo. these ticket prices might slow sales for sure im not griping at all. like someone said a bill fifty to see donobono or the cure is a farce! i dont think that me and jena are gonna go after all its just happened to quickly after chicago we are just getting our shop in order from our last moz quest .then again who knows we might make it!
