If you don´t have a CreditCard?

Not for me, I have one, but a friend of mine doesn´t have a CreditCard.
So how is it possible to buy for European people concert tickets in the USA?

Any Idea?

I´m afraid it´s totally impossible without a Credit card unless you pay for your friend :-)

Damn, so if I should really go to a concert, I need someone who orders a ticket for me - I don´t have a credit card either :-(

I wanted to buy tickets for my friend with my credit card - but...

As a European citizen you have to pick up your tickets at the box office at the day of the concert - AND you have to show them the credit card there.
So if you don´t have one (with your name on it, or at least from a member of your family (that worked for me in 1999) you can´t buy tickets...)

NOW, lets´ have a look on ebay:
There I read:

* Will ship to United States only.
or
* After purchasing, pay instantly with your credit card through PayPal!
*Will ship to United States only.
*Will ship to United States only.
*Will ship to United States only.
*Will ship to United States only.
*Will ship to United States only.
*Will ship to United States only.


IT IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO BUY TICKETS.
America, the country where you can get everything if you just have enought money.

And if you are American too ! They are really stupid sometimes !
But if you find a site where to buy the tickets : can´t you buy 2 tickets and then, go to the office with your friend to take the 2 tickets and give one to him ? Unless he doesn´t want to go with you or doesn´t want to go to the same place...

Have you asked Nicolas ? I´m sure he knows how to buy tickets.

Now what am I going to to?? This is so mean!

very fast in the next days.
It only needs a week or so and you have one.

They don´t send the tickets abroad..don´t know why :-( But maybe someone from the USA can order for you and you send them the money...

Yes but if that person needs to show the credit card at the office to then have the ticket, how do you manage ? Furthermore, an international money order is expensive.
The best solution is really to ask for a credit card or to renounce to go to the concert ! ;-)

they even can print them out at home...

So for example the tickets could be send to Cathy (a very nice person) and she will send them to Europe then.

Anyway...all good tickets are gone - days before the sale started :-)

Yesterday a guy from ticketinaflash.com wrote me, and asked if I could install a banner or link to their site - and how we can arrange that.

I asked them to give me 3 reservations for floor tickets in Miami :-) the refused, and I understand them - they sell the tickets for 1000$ :-P
But what else can the give to me than tickets? (reservations, I pay them)

I also have seen Tickets on ticketmaster BEHIND the stage which cost 127$

The prices on ebay are expensive, but often less than 200$ for a floor ticket... hm (most sell 4 tickets for 700$ or so)


I hope the other shows will be announced after the first S&G show in October (or go on sale after that date...I first want to read some reviews)
