I looked on Ticket master and can't find any tickets and it turns out there are hundreds on StubHub. many of them have a UPS delivery option.

Has anyone used stub hub? Is it a reliable resource? I wasn't sure if I'd have the money for the Beacon this year and waited to buy tickets and now this looks like my only option. Any advice or suggestions would be helpful. thanks everyone.

I have used Stubhub a few times and they are legit. Never had any problems. They will reimburse you if you do get ripped off.

did you pick up the tickets or have them mailed to you?

i've used stubhub a bunch, used the mail and pick up option.
You are going to get charged with fee's regardless so mail is probably your better bet. The pick up locations in Boston are typically failry close to the venues but are pretty hard to just pull over and pick up your tickets.
Like the previous post said, its a legit site and tickets are guaranteed.

I've used it 2 or 3 times.
another option if the show is coming up soon is to have them email the tix to you and print them at home

I've used stubhub a few times too (also razorgator for the Peach Fest last summer) no problems at all. The pickup spot is in Times Square 40th Street, a fairly simple 15 minute subway ride up to the Beacon.

TM did not offer ticketfast for the Beacon, so email from SH is not possible here. UPS or pickup only.

Stubhub is reliable, but factor in that you pay a 10% buyer's commission plus shipping.

the fees are and shipping costs are expected. It's just a shame I can't get a ticket from Ticket Master and there are 500+ for Saturday night on Stub Hub. I don't have much choice.

usually ticketmaster will have a couple tickets pop up on the day of the show. If you are looking for a single ticket. Pairs are harder to find.

You could always just show up to the venue and get a ticket outside. I haven't heard of as many fakes as last year.

I got a loge on Monday for face outside the venue.

Every year I use stub hub since it is close to impossible to obtain tickets through ticket master when they go on sale. Aside from the high prices I highly recommend them. Great customer service. I am buying tickets for a large group and I don't track when I am supposed to get them. THEY, stubhub, notified me by email last Thurs that three tickets were late. I emailed them that their price guarantee was not important - I needed replacement tickets if the others did not come through. The next day I received two emails and a phone call from them assuring me that they would replace them. They gave me a choice - they assured me the provider was top notch and they should get the tics but if I chose they would get three other tickets immediately. I stuck with the original tickets. They waived the fees and service charge (saved 97 bucks) and I just got notice that the tics are in mail for 3/16 show. Surpassed my expectations for customer service.

I've used them and they are reputable. If you want "real" tickets you can pick them up at their NY office - otherwise they will email you paper tickets. This year the Beacon tickets have an ABB logo so fans may want those, they are pretty cool looking.

We bought 2 tickets for the 29
We were mailed hard tickets , there was no postage charges or fees.
If u sure about anything, simply call stub hub. No wait, courteous, and pro
All fees are on the sell side

How much less than face value?

I've used Stub Hub to buy and sell. It costs what it costs. I've always known ahead of time what that cost would be. I've never been ripped off.

I like it.

I ordered a ticket last Friday for the 22nd and I just noticed that the expected delivery date was on the 21st. lol I'm leaving for NY at 9am on the 21st so I contacted stubhub and had the delivery changed to me picking them up at their offices.

so anyone coming into town this is just a heads up on checking your delivery date

I just got finished doing the exact same thing! Is this a major FU waiting to happen? I got
my other nights from TM at least two weeks ago....so why the ticket hasn't been shipped yet
by the seller is anyone's guess.

So.....guess what? After making arrangements with Stub Hub for the ticket re-direct, I get
home tonight and the damn thing has been delivered by UPS. Well, now....at least I have
it.

I've used Stubhub before and it was all good, though it was ticket for a hockey game. Anyway what is expected to be paid for a single orch ticket for friday 3/21 or saturday 3/22 if I'll wait untill say thursday or friday? What was the face value of the orch tickets anyway?

I have been tracking Stub Hub tickets for Sat the 22nd since Feb 2nd. I created a massive spreadsheet and have been tracking specific tickets in the Orch. I was buying for a large group and wanted to see what actually happens to ticket pricing. Some interesting info. The number of tickets available on 2/2 for the 3/22 show was 149 which reached a high of 332 on March 1 and has since dropped down to 219 today. So supply has dropped and there were 32 Orch tickets available for $500 or less on March 1 and that has dropped to 23 available today. Tickets seem to sell when they drop under $350 and these are not necessarily great seats. I consider great seats from row J and closer. During the past 4 or 5 years we have been able to get tics around row J averaging around $300 out the door. Those tickets today are three times that amount and there are not many out there. I took a look at tics for this past Fridays show last Thurs to see if there was a dramatic drop right before the show and did not see much of a drop in price but the number of available tickets was low. I guess my point is that unless you live in NYC and can risk going down to the wire I would recommend pulling the trigger now. Expect at best to pay $300 to $400 for Orch row R-Z.

tics I bought for Friday night 3/21 Orch 2 row U were $100.99 with a $19.90 service charge. This was face value through ticket master.

^&^^ Thanks for your reply guys. Maybe better to secure at least ticket for one show soon as it seems this might be the last change to see the band for me. It seems that the prices are ridiculously high but what can you do.

Where in Time Square is Stub Hub pick up office? What is the latest date and time you can buy tickets. Can you get them the day of show? Or are they done selling the day before?
