ah ok. I have done that with people before but have then messaged the person immediately to say we had some so there isn't a double purchase
As it happened, Turtle had to get 2 more standing because people got fomo but because of the price, others opted out. This was always guaranteed to sell out massively quickly and even the added date was gone in a day. I listed my tickets yesterday morning and they were both gone by last night. But that was probably because my conscience won out and I covered purely the ticket including all fees and will make about £40 profit (£10 per ticket) because I wasn't buying to sell at extortionate price in the first place
Some will see that as an own goal - I paid 3 times over the face price for my Muse ticket last year and vowed I wouldn't ever do that.

One day you will surprise us all by actually reading things before asking stupid questions.
Bear - Turtle and I were both sitting on ticket sites just in case, knowing we would have no problem selling them on. Rather too many tickets than not enough I phoned him at about 11 the night before to discuss strategy
I got U2 tickets for three of their shows & went to two of them. Def worth it as the first night was standing & we got right up front. Thankfully the second one was seated as I was rather tender after a mates house party.

I've resold the Queen tickets I had as am going on a different date with mates. Stubhub have confirmed that I have been a good girl and uploaded the bar codes, those have been cancelled and new tickets and bar codes issued for the tickets for the buyer. I'm still not getting paid for this until after the f*****g event in case there is a problem with the tickets. Surely your reissue and confirmation that I have done good means the problem is yours and I should get paid now?
