AC/DC Tickets - Today!

Posted on Friday, September 19, 2008 at 12:02AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments11 Comments

Update:  Ticketing didn't necessarily go my way and I had to join the fanclub. I'm not on the floor, but a level up. Ticketmaster was a zoo this morning - 7 and 8 minute waits at some points! Good luck to all of you.

AC/DC tickets go on sale today (at least for my region)! I'll be online and ready at 10 a.m. - I think the contest for the seats will be fierce.

I'm stunned that - at least it seems - ticket prices are actually bearable for this must-see tour. I plan on attending the Columbus, Ohio show at the Schottenstein Center.  Even better, my show is on a Friday night! Ticketmaster lists most seats in the $88-$95 range. We'll see what the tickets really are when I log on at ten to buy seats for me, Eric and Heather.

If you get tickets - tell me and we'll compare our seats! Glam knows I've spent enough money this week, so I didn't join the AC/DC fanclub to get a pre-sale password. This means the chances of me getting a floor seat to the show are probably slim to none. I shall update this post after ticket time.

Hooray for AC/DC!


The first single from the new AC/DC album Black Ice is "Rock N' Roll Train." Hear it here:



You can buy Black Ice late next month at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores and the official AC/DC website. It's already on my list.

I will buy this CD, although I don't expect too much. I also hope to see the tour, I'll probably be in the US in October, at least. I plan to just buy good floor seats from a scalping site once I have some idea of my travels. It's the only way for me, b/c I just don't know where I'll be with enough time to buy the tickets when they go on sale.

Ticket prices are bearable!? Oh my gosh, it'll cost us $200 for two people, just to get in, no matter where we sit. That doesn't count food/drinks/t-shirts or anything else. Price and security is determined by the artist. I can't believe that they need THAT much money. Even Metallica tickets are cheaper and they threw in the new album and a download of the show you buy tickets for. I didn't even pay that much to see Paul McCartney, and he's a Beatle for heaven's sakes! The live show will probably be good (better than the new album, I'm sure) but there's no way I can afford it. They're doing a summer outdoor tour as well. I'll wait to see if lawn tickets are cheaper.

I scored 18th row for the Toronto show!!! I've never seen Ticketmaster this busy before.

Mom2ross,

You know, I think you are right. I had a momentary lapse of reason here - ticket prices are way out of hand. I guess it's sad I thought 89.50 (before fees) was cheap - because, honestly, I was expecting $250 AC/DC seats.

Ahoy Allyson, and a happy International Talk Like A Pirate day to ye! I hate to sound like an old fart, but well, I am an old fart. I still have a ticket stub from when I saw ZZ Top in 1980. The price for the ticket was $8.50. When I was in high school from '83 to '87 I saw tons of concerts, and the price for even the biggest bands was about $13 per ticket. The shirts were also about $13, so you could do a major show and a shirt for under $30. What bands charge for tickets now is nothing short of highway robbery!

One thing to keep in mind is that in the good old days, you'd have to line up for HOURS before a big show went on sale. You don't have to do that anymore, and if "time is money", then maybe it works out in the wash. Believe me, I'm the single income earner in a family of 5 and I don't make a lot, but concerts are just about my only splurge in life. I don't like paying it out, but I always say that rock 'n' roll is a lifestyle and I gotta live!!!!!

Even if ticket prices were bearable, they're not now that they're sold out and scalpers have gotten ahold of them :( But as an alternative... Has anyone seen their display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? I work for Positively Cleveland, and we're getting the word out about the Rock Hall. I highly encourage all music fans (and especially AC/DC fans) to check it out. You can start on our website: http://www.positivelycleveland.com/visiting/things_to_do/cleveland_rocks/rock_hall. Also go to http://www.positivelycleveland.com/intheknow to enter to win passes to the Rock Hall AND a private tour from the curator!

Hope I haven't overstepped my bounds by leaving this comment; just working to let people know about what Cleveland has to offer! If you have any questions or concerns feel free to Email me :)

Hi there and well done to all you lucky people that got tickets. I took the day off work and spent hours trying with no luck. How did you get them as I am going to try again tomorrow - internet or phone? Thanks a million
