I've always done Floor seats for their shows...not going to settle for anything less. It's unfortunate that the first presale was for Amex and not for fans like in the past. It kinda lets me down as a fan.

I meant 40-50 over base price lol, 40-50 flat rate would be a dream. I don't mind paying $150 for a floor ticket. But I do agree on the amex thing, that's some bullshit.

second hand floor tickets are going for about that much right now on a ticket selling site, but I'll check elsewhere.

Yep, they were gone the second the sale opened. I've been able to get (though haven't kept) a few single-ticket orders though, so if you're going solo, keep trying.

Looks like some places haven't actually gone up yet for general admission. The show in Kansas City says sales haven't opened yet on Ticketmaster. But my closest options are dead, though.

Bought 4 tickets for the Chicago show. Supposedly we're getting a free album if we buy tickets? Haven't received an email for that, at least not yet.

Redemption emails will go out in about 7-10 business days after purchase of tickets.
Should be getting one around the time the new album drops.

The app is showing me where to go for the listening party. "Lakeside Park, Dallas," which is a ways away. Interesting concept though.

I decided to refresh the Boston show one more time, and got a first hand ticket! It was a little pricer than I hoped, but I'm already dropping a decent chunk of airfare anyway, so whatever, fuck it I guess.

I went ahead and bought a VIP ticket to the Atlanta show. Includes early entry into the venue, exclusive merch, a private concession stand and access to soundcheck.

Any site that sells first-hand Gorillaz tickets. Check out gorillaz.com/tour
and if your venue has a + next to it, means you have a free digital download or CD coming your way.

Chicago was sold out for general admission by the time sales opened. Guess they sold all their tickets pre-sale.

Is this usual for Gorillaz concerts? I know it's been awhile, but these tickets went so fucking quick. Has it always been that way or is it inflated due to their unexpected return?

Nice! I'll probably be staking out Stubhub the day of, for a hopefully cheap-ish pair.

It's the same as yesterday, by the time I got in they are unavailable.

It's only showing one option under 'Select Price Range'.

Ticket scalpers I guess.

Unless they put up more tickets periodically? I'm not sure about that.

It took me until 10:07 to get in, but I guess it didn't matter.

At that point, you might as well just buy one of the VIP tickets that are going most places for $200. Unless those sell out, too. Looks like most places that offer them still have plenty, though.

I wouldn't have thought of Gorillaz as a band that instantly sells out tickets like this, but I guess it makes sense given they haven't toured in 7 years. I was able to get Kanye tickets far easier last year! (and then he cancelled the show -_-)

If you guys live near the venue, wait closer to the day of the show -- or even the day of -- for second-hand ticket prices to drop.

That's my guess. I'm hoping some radio stations in the area do promos. It's my only chance now.

I think also that Gorillaz appeals to a larger swath of musical tastes, so some who normally don't see many concerts will rush out in droves to see them.

Yeah, a metric fuckton of scalpers' tickets available too, many in groups of 8.

I'm kind of a newbie to getting live tickets, but it's pretty obvious how sweet a deal this is for both the venue AND scalpers. Seems like a starkly defined ecosystem and I'm not sure why it would ever change at this point.
