Most regular concert goers know that tickets can get very expensive if you buy them off of the secondary market. The prices often double, triple, or even go as high as 10x the face price depending on the popularity of the concert
. When concert fans try to buy tickets during the general public sale, most of the time they find that there is nothing available. The only real chance that dedicated fans have to get tickets is through the special presale deals that certain groups sponsor through primary ticket agents like Ticketmaster.
So what is a presale?
A presale is a chance for concert fans like yourself to buy tickets before the general public can. The only thing you need to get access to a presale is a special password that changes depending on what event it is. Presale opportunities always happen before the general public sale. Sometimes the presale can last as long as a month, or sometimes just a few hours.
How do you get the presale password?
Generally presale password information can be found on the internet. There are special websites out there that are dedicated to aggregating presale password information. One site that I personally recommend is http://presalepassword.net – I have used them before and I can say that it was a pretty good experience. You can check out the current list of presale passwords they have at this link: Current List of Presale Passwords
Try to be as fast as possible when the tickets first go on sale. Most tickets go on sale at 10:00 AM in the local time zone. DO NOT be late if you want to get premium tickets. All of the best tickets are bought within the first 10 minutes of the sale if it is an event that is in high demand. If you pull up tickets that you don’t want, don’t be afraid to release them and try again.
