It does. First thing I thought was all those who couldn't get tickets. It was sad.

I don't have much sympathy for scalpers/brokers who grabbed up handfuls of tickets hoping to make a bundle of money here. Some of the $1000+ pricetags attached to single seats were disgusting. I do, however, feel bad for fans who were unable to get tickets when sales were on because so many were snagging tickets not to enjoy shows but to make a $. For anybody travelling to NYC for shows actually having a ticket before hitting the road can be difference between going and not going. It's also a shame if empty seats are present for these shows - don't think that would be the case if the tickets had been available for cost to fans and not sitting in some scalpers/brokers hands. And for anyone who paid inflated prices only to have tix now available for below cost - this has really got to suck.

Just wondering since the thread starter has all of 2 posts , if that they are in fact themselves a scalper who got burned on the tix .........If that's the case , you got what you deserved and hope you're gonna eat some more $$$$$$$
