Sat night I was approached to buy tics by two different guys both were loge seats . The place is swarming with con artists ..Buy from Stub Hub if you really want to go .. Do not buy off the street I saw more than one person get ripped off Sat .. You get wrapped up in the excitement of it all , and being the last shows and all dont do it! .. I've never seen it as bad as I did Saturday . Two men told The police they were just ripped off and pointed out the guys and all the police do is tell them to get lost ..they walk around the block and come right back . They are BS artists so they sound very convincing .. I wouldnt take the chance .


If you do buy off the street make sure the seller will walk in with you or at least walk up to the door until the ticket is scanned. There actually could be a real fan or two that may have a ticket to sell.

I just got sent a photo from craigslist of a ticket that looks like your "fake" as well. It also is missing the coca cola concert series under the logo, it happens to be seat 108 and 109 but orchestra and the print date was also jun24. What do we think?


I posted that pic on CL warning people to beware of fakes.
Thanks, thanks, thanks... This guy had me on the hook until I saw your Craigslist Post. Still don't have a ticket for tonight but I'm not ripped off.. Really nice of you to take the time to help others, you saved me...

I was able to get the barcode number of the ticket at hand. I'm going to dig around and see if there is any way to verify the code.

I am very happy you didn't get scammed.

Keep in mind it could be a legit bar code but a fake ticket. A scammer could make dozens of tickets with the same bar code.

A few other things i noticed, in case you come across other tickets:
The legend at the bottom is off("$5.00 facility fee" on the fake - real ticket says: "price includes all applicable taxes")
The colors are off on the writing above the logo and the 45th anniversary logo (among other things, the letters have black outlines on the real ticket and the interior of the logo is not shaded in)
Missing the "no refund, no exchange" language at the bottom of the ticket
As others have said, Coca cola concert series language is missing.

I included a link to a scan of my ticket from March below

This fake ticket also says "45th Anniversary TOUR". None of the real tickets that I have seen have the word "TOUR."

Good eye Nav. The words "Anniversary Tour" also "BUTT-UP" against 1969-2014 which is not on any real tickets i've seen.

Because the tix were all printed in different runs and many date back to March there are many differences in regard what they look like. The bottom line is the bar code - period.

The pricing is not an issue depending on who issued the tix. We had the same tix for both nights issued from the ABB touring office and the Friday tix had 150.99 while the Sat tix had 500.00.

The big scam by the way, which a friend that did not listen to me got hosed on is the I lost my ticket can you email me a replacement. Once that has been done the bar code on the actual physical ticket is now defunct. They bought two Row D Orch for Sat for 200 each and they were of course bogus. Craig's list, and any private seller should not be trusted unless you know them. The re-sellers at least will provide a 100% refund guarantee if the tix are no good. Stubhub is the best option.

Keep in mind that the crooks know that we are all looking for a way in as the two shows approach and can easily get an account here to scam.

Caveat Emptor yall!!

I think some of these are real tickets just barcode not good as either turned in when date changed or already downloaded to someone else which then kills the hard copy. My tickets look just like all of these for sat did not say coca cola but rest looks legit did not scan we were burned as were many others we saw milling around. Either they go to the show with you or don't buy them
