As previously reported, LCD Soundsystem are playing their last ever show April 2 in New York City at Madison Square Garden. On Wednesday, presale tickets went on sale via Ticketmaster and quickly sold out. Today, general tickets went on sale, but were, for many would-be purchasers, immediately unavailable. Meanwhile, tickets showed up on scalper sites like Stubhub starting at ~$150 and going up to anywhere from $750 to several thousand dollars for general-admission floor tickets. The situation was such that LCD Soundsystem posted this to their Twitter:
Check the hashtag--pretty much no one got tickets except for AMEX preferred members or the few lucky folks who made the pre-sale. And of course, the scalpers.
The bright side, of course, is it gives Aziz Ansari some material . . .
