The tickets were $150 but for shits and giggles, I logged onto Ticketmaster’s site exactly at 12 noon today (when the tickets went on sale to non-Chase card holders) and guess what —- apparently sold out.
“No tickets match your criteria”? then that means SOLD OUT.
In 3 minutes, how the hell can an event SELL OUT??? And sell out at these exorbitant prices???
They also plan on making this a pay perview event. The top price for a ticket was $2500.
I would like to know exactly where it is this 121212 concert money is going; I would like to know where all of the relief money is going! There are homes that are still wiped out and people who cannot get aid, either from locals, The Red Cross or from anything insurance or federal.
Breezy Point and the Far rockaways still have no heat no lights no nothin’ — did they get any of this relief money? Looks like no.
The only help that is coming in (besides a $2800 check from FEMA and in this area that money won’t take you far) is from volunteer efforts from individual groups. Even so, they can’t be everywhere and help everyone; lots of areas have nothing so yeah, what abou them?
It’s great to set up a concert or a this or a that and say MOney will go to Sandy relief — but where is this money going? and how immediately will this money be made available?
Anybody here get the ugly feeling somebody will get rich from this deal? Because I do.
($150 for a concert? Take that money, spend it on items for very local victims and bring the items TO THEM. That’s where it will do the most good. Weehawken, Moonachie and Carlstadt and Little Ferry are a 10 or 15 minute drive from me and those people really need help)
