But that doesn't mean you can't still score seats. Soon after GrizTix announced the event had sold out, secondary markets were flooded with tickets at four times the face value, or more. The cheapest seats on StubHub start at $249, with some asking $500 for similar sections. Floor seats can be had for as much as $2,353.
I'm still going to the show with or without tickets. I'm just taking a baseball bat with me and I'm going to beat down every person who stops me to ask if I need Pearl Jam tickets for inflated prices. And it's going to be fun.
No need for violence, although there are a lot of frustrated fans out there who got shut out online or left empty handed after waiting in line. (Full disclosure: I was one of the less-frustrated folks who missed out online; the image of that "Please Hold" screen is burned in my memory.)
If it's any consolation, Tester's campaign is still offering the "best seats in the world." These seats put you in a recliner on stage for the full concert, and that's after a pre-show meet-and-greet with Tester and the band, and dinner with Jeff Ament and the senator. These premier seats only costs $10 ... to get entered into a raffle.
