I know there's been a lot written in another thread, but I'd like to start a new one to see what's going on and what the extent of this problem is.

Please post if you've had your legit presale orders stolen by Ticket Master. Let us know if you've had any success getting closure.

Personally, I had good LBalc tix for 3/24 and 4/6 (two tix each night) cancelled -- have emailed and PM'd Lana and Rowland but haven't heard back (yet?). Spoke to TM and got the same line of 'over limit' and 'talk to the fan club' that I've read from others.

What's your story?

I'm always confused by looking at someone's profile or site registration date.

Yours shows you registered today, which would make you ineligible for the pre-sale.

But, that's come up before, and people will claim they've been registered Peach Corp members for years.

Gives me a headache, but I'm not accusing anyone of anything.

Yeah, i just had this same question on the other thread - you can be part of peachcorps and not be on this forum (my situation) but still get notification of events, etc. I got the presale info via email just like I have for the last five+ years. I decided to get registered here after seeing that I wasn't alone in this cancellation scam. If you look at all the various folks getting cancelled out on this forum alone, you'll see it's pretty pervasive - not just folks who aren't part of this forum.

As I just posted in the other thread, what mrltt says is true ... the date you see under somebodies name which claims to be their "registered" date is actually the date that they first posted here in the Forum.

Perhaps we ought to get Roland to change it so it says "First Posted" or else to show the date the person actually registered.

I have been a regular visitor to this and the old site since 1998 yet under my name it says "Registered 1/7/2004" ... as you will see if you check my profile my membership number shows that I registered long before that.

Sure hope this all works out for everybody ...

hate to keep double posting to this an the other thread but... I AM new to this forum today (I've dropped in and read things before, just never registered or posted myself). I'm a legit peach corp member which is seperate from any site registration... Nice to get flamed every once in a while (over on the other thread) for things folks don't understand

If i had a nickle for every flame I've thrown or caught here, well....I'd have a pocket full of nickles.

I haven't read anyone's specifc actions on this to date, but I think the best advice is to PM Lana and see if there's anything she can/will do.

TM is probably going to be a dead end.

This sucks!! I just checked my order and happily it seems ok. For those affected, I would recommend trying two things:

1 - Contact Lana immedietly. She'll be able to verify your order was placed within the bounds of the presale guidelines.

2 - Contact Ticketbastard and let them know you're pissed off. Large corporations sometimes respond to unhappy customer complaints if they're worded politely and professionally. Write a hard copy letter to a vice-president and calmly explain the situation. What have you got to lose?

And FWIW, I've known mrltt for many years and some of you guys are WAY off base. He's been an ABB fan since the only music some of you cared about was coming outa Bert-n-Ernie. Be nice now and don't be too fast to chastize, especially when you have the facts dead wrong. Show the love, will'ya?!

I have been a member of this board for almost a year, but I am not a member of the peach corps. How do I become a member of the peach corps? I would certainly like to become a member.

I think you ARE a member by virtue of being registered here. But, you can subscribe to the Peach-o-Gram without being registered here...

I don't usually post as I rarely have anything to say but I'm w/ Douger.

I know MRLTT since the mid 1980s and he's as genuine as they come.

I've been sending brain waves to Lana all day!

Pete,I could be wrong,but as far as I know if you are registered here,you are a member.

Do you mean that you don't get the Peach-O-Grams?If that's the case,I think you may have the option turned off.I'm sorry,but I forget where that option is,but I'm sure someone here can tell you.It's worth checking.

Go to the left side of the pages here to "Community".
Click on "Newsletter" than make sure the "subscribe" box is checked on.

I think that's how you make sure a registered person here gets the POGs....

This may be overkill, but also click profile and then check the box, receive newsletters from admin.

Glad to read this. Two years ago I had my presale tix cancelled. A cordial note to Lana stating my case and asking for some love got the situation rectified and my tix were reinstated in less than 48 hrs. This is a tremendous undertaking by her and Rowland and there will be oversights. Hope you get your tix. Good luck!

Same thing happened to me 2 years ago..Lana took care of it for me..I'm sure she'll get it fixed for you..Stay positive..What that woman does for us is a huge undertaking...I'm sure from the day the pre-sale tickets go on sale until show time, it's a 24/7 job..Thanks Lana!!

I am sure the presale review is time consuming and I appreciate it. Perhaps, though, a short post announcing the review is over would be a good idea. It might say the review is over and the following orders were canceled [attach the list w/o any confidential info]. Then indicate the list will go to TM in some # of days, so advise before then if you disagree. Seems like it would be easier for all to fix orders before tix go to TM for resale.

Agreed on all points - I'd just add that i've never heard of this many false cancels from anyone other than Ticketmaster. There must be other easier options (phil uses Music Now I believe, even GDTStoo could probably handle it and would love the business....)

How do you become a member of the Peach Corps so you can take advantage of the internet presale?

Simply create a user account on this site (or the main Hittin' the Web site) and sign up for the Peach-o-gram newsletter -- click Newsletter under the Community box over there on the left and check "Peach-o-gram" and then click the "update your subscriptions" button.

Hope that helps. Ang
