Since Fall Out Boy reunited and announced a new single, new album and new tour earlier this week, fans have been damn near losing their minds trying to get their hands on tickets to one of their upcoming concerts. The band played three (very) sold out intimate shows this week—Chicago, New York and L.A. And after the Chicago show sold out almost instantaneously, a few fans in the Midwest were ready to sell their souls for tickets. No, for real.
FOB fans across the pond were equally as frustrated Friday morning. See Tickets, a U.K. concert ticket distributor, caught major flack from fans after tickets went on sale three minutes before they were supposed to. According to Gigwise, when users logged on at 9 am, the time the tickets were supposed to go on sale for the boys' show in London on February 23, they were already sold out. On fan commented on the event's page, "YOUR ORDERING PROCESS IS BULLSH-T." That's one way to put it.
For those looking for tickets elsewhere for the London show, we hope you saved your allowance—some FOB tickets that are being sold on other websites for as much as £300 (or about $400). And before the Chicago show this week, one guy took to Craiglist to search for the "hottest chick available" to give his extra ticket to. (No word if that worked out for him or not.)
Most of the tickets for Fall Out Boy's Save Rock and Roll tour have yet to go on sale, but a word to the wise: get your clickin' finger ready.
We kind of feel the cast of "The Hustle" waiting for it to premiere tonight. Let's go!
