2011 Bash Ticket Sales
Dear Sammy/Red Rocker Ticketing:
It seems like everyone is happy with the way Bash ticketing went down this year. Thankfully, I was one of the fortunate ones who got tickets for all of the shows. Haven't missed a single one in 7 years. It's hard to remember a lot of them, but the pictures remind me I was there!
I'd like to make just one request for next year if you decide to sell tickets again - please make the announcement as early as possible. Many of us buy airline tickets well in advance of October - sometimes as much as a year in advance! Unfortunately, I know a lot of people who bought plane tix early who couldn't get get concert tix online this year. They were folks who normally don't mind waiting in line. But with that program scrapped this year, they were S.O.L. for getting to see any of the shows.
I've noticed a number of artists lately who are selling tickets almost 6 months ahead of their gigs (Gaga, U2, etc.). Obviously, a great cash flow/operations strategy. So it would surely benefit all if we knew we had concert tickets before we bought the airline tickets. What do you say, guys? How about announcing Bash dates and selling tickets sometime in April/May next year? What does everyone think of this idea?
Thanks for all the fun, Sam. You're my hero and an inspiration to us all. See ya soon, FDIC.
