No wonder the tickets sold out so fast. Have you seen the number of tickets being added on ebay each day?

Aus ticket agents have been taking anti scalping measures for a few years now especially for the big events like festivals and huge international artists including limiting quantities to 4 tickets per credit card.

Maybe organisers should look into limiting ticket quantity sales next year for fairness. But then they probably wouldn't care as long as the tickets sold. And what great publicity "Wacken sells out in February!" :rolleyes:

It may be a good idea to have the cash on hand to buy them at the festival (for the 20th year)!
Hopefully they don't hike the price....everyone knows they CAN. :confused:

I saw a few here in the states,( on e-bay) but due to the travel involved I don't think there will be a lot of sellers here.
I would imagine that it would be crazier in Europe.

I will probably end up selling mine, when I do it won't be much more than what I paid. I just want my money back, and enough for maybe a 6-pack to console me :p

then again these people selling tickets for huge amounts of cash are probably not 'metal' people anyway...just assholes who knew the time would come, and are so happy that WOA sold out when it did...


and if not, oh well, hopefully they fall on a tent spear at wacken

Report them so the orgas can take some action. All tickets are retrievable(?), so they say.
