The headline pretty much says it all here — after going on sale at 10:01 a.m. (according to my computer's clock, anyway) Ben Folds Five tickets were sold out in, seemingly, a matter of seconds.
After manically refreshing the event listing on etix.com, I was able to snag a pair of tickets to the show.
One unexpected surprise was a $10 hike in the ticket fee. Tickets were actually $50 each, as opposed to the previously reported $40, with a $10 "donation fee" toward Operation Smile, according to the Cat's Cradle.
How about you guys? Who all is going and how far will you travel to get here? Did anyone have any problems with etix going down? Let's hear it!
UPDATE: If, for some reason, you find yourself with extra tickets...the craigslist board is already buzzing with "want to buy" ads. Listings like this one are guaranteed to keep me amused well into next week. (2nd Update: OK, that one was deleted probably due to, uh, sexual innuendo, but this post is a keeper, too.)
