    Just a quick note. There are 1,479 tickets available on that site right now. The lowest priced tickets have dropped from 279 to 210 in the last 2 days. I guarantee the prices will be "affordable" on Saturday (probably the $150 range).

    I've been able to use that site to get near front row seating for "sold out" concerts and events at or below face value. The scalpers have been buying up too many tickets and are desperate the day before the show (sometimes the day of) to unload their tickets. There was one recent concert at Key Arena that was sold out. The site had 5,000 tickets for sale (about 1/3rd of Key Arena). I just waited until the day before the show and got an excellent seat at lower than face value.
