There are quite a few(expensive) seats remaining for all shows that had presales today. There are also some "cheapies" left as well.   For those who couldnt get in this morning, or those who complain they never get good seats or are shut out.  They are there for the taking.  Go grab them!

What show were you looking for?  There a plenty left.

What in the world?! SO it's "fixed" now?! This is so unfair and wrong.  If TM made a mistake, they should have sent an email out and arranged to have the pre-sale another day after people were notified.  So they just put the fanclub presale tickets up hours after they were supposed to go on sale.  Were we supposed to wait at our computers and hope that someone fixed their mistake?! I'm so upset. Now there are no good seats left for Greenville. I wish I would have seen this post hours ago.

Greenville has tons of seats left.  From front row to nosebleeds to in between.  What exactly are you looking for!?!?

Its Paul's own fault that he has become a tribute band.  In 89 and 93 he played a good amount of new stuff from his current albums, and the obligatory Beatles stuff.

After Chaos and Creation came around that was it.  In all honesty, I wasnt too keen on the "NEW" album sans a few songs, and the few tunes I've heard off of "Egypt Station" haven't exactly had me begging for more.  In fact I've listened to the 3 new songs that are available, and have a grand total of 2 listens each.  Underwhelmed to say the least.

 I'd love to see him throw the audience a curve and open with something like "Get Out Of My Way"(will never happen), but I'm sure he we will "Beatle us" with the first song.  If he caters so much for the first timers, whats the point for us repeat customers?!?! He's been playing for over 50 years most people have had the chance to see him at one point or another.  Time to start catering to the hardcore fans a bit.  Even if it is a 5 song section in the middle of the show where he announces "This is for all you hardcore fans" would be fine.

And do we really need to still have a George tribute 17 years later?!?  I get it for the 02-03 tours, and maybe a tour or two after.  Now?!?  Seems misplaced a bit.

That leaves about 8 or so days of rehearsals. Probably not even that many days, as I doubt Paul wants to sing every single day up to show day.  Needs to rest the pipes before the first gig.

  Not exactly tons of time to shakeup the setlist and rehearse.

I'll pass on Ringo this time around, as I have seen him 4-5 times over the years.  His "all stars" he currently has dont measure up to his first few all star bands.  Not even close.

Weren't there rehearsals over the summer in the UK as well? I'd like to think that with a new tour name (especially one like freshen up) and a new album...that we would get about ten new songs (including new album cuts) in the set.

I imagine there were, but it is a decent layoff in bewtween gigs.  We will see what he brings out in NY on Friday

This is all easily traceable back to the greed some of us were attempting to discuss in another thread. Paul simply doesn't care. He walks out with his cool million and a guarantee of a packed house no matter what...and he isn't the only one. It will never change. These big rock legends have about another decade MAX of this level of activity and popularity so they're going to soak it up for the rest of their lives.

Too bad these rock legends don't do what JK Rowlings has done to try and prevent scalpers from getting tickets to Harry Potter show in London. My family will be going to London and see it in December and you don't even get a ticket. You go to the box office the day/evening of the show to get ticket and need to show proof of purchase and photo id of the person who bought the tickets. I will also mention this show is reasonably priced especially when you compare it to seeing "Hamilton" in NYC.

Another excellent option! They simply don't care.

You are right, they are getting their money and that is all that matters. They know there is a market out there that will let them charge anything they want and will sell out.  Does anybody really think the McCartney team cares about the fans on this board getting to see him in concert? I truly understand an artist wanting to make money but in his case he is a billonaire and can afford to make the prices more reasonable and still make a nice profit.  In addition, think of the money he makes in merchandising when you are selling a t-shirt for $35-$50. Also, it seems to me he makes a bit of money (lol) on his sound check package and people are not even very close to the stage.

Once again, I will give major credit to JK Rowlings. She took real control of her show and has a system where real fans are going and at affordable price for theater.  I believe she knows with the prices she charges she will still make quite a bit of money and that is not even including the amount of merchandise that is sold for the shows. She has proven it can be done, I wish others would follow her lead.

The man is pushing 80 years old.  I highly doubt he stays up at night worrying about how tickets are sold.  He has a fee, and promoters charge a price they need to, to cover his fee and make money.   Paul gets his $$$ regardless of 1 ticket being sold, or all tickets sold.

This ridiculous whining is so over the top and ridiculous by the "adults" here.  Tickets were readily available for all to purchase, so as long as you can use a computer properly, and read basic instructions.   Embarrassing to compare ticket sales to his show to Harry Potter LOL.

Maccaroni74...love your name, since our group graduated in 74. Wondering, though..."tickets were readily available for all to purchase?" Well...we generally can use a computer properly and we generally read basic instructions, but we did NOT get a presale password or code through email, and we do NOT carry AMEX, so I don't think "readily available for all" is the correct scenario. Bless your heart, we still love Paul and band and still hope to see him this time around, but you're not correct. We had NO chance for presale tickets. Not whining this time...just stating facts. Hope you got great tickets!

Thanks for the compliment on my username. The quote you are referencing about tickets being "readily available" was peratining to the Euro and Canadain shows which people were complaining.  This thread was created a ways back. Many people were complaining they were unable to purchase tix for Euro and Canada.  They WERE readily available.

The US presale the other day was a messup, as the PMC presale didnt occur until hours after the listed presale time.  However, there ARE tix for all shows still available without an AMEX, so at least to have the option to purchase seats now.

I DID get terrific seats for Moline and Madison, and I am on the ledge on going to KY.

Don’t know how anyone got tickets for Madison....I have done presales and regular sales successfully for years and was not able to get anything. All VIP prices....started at $432, after I waited in line for 25 minutes. I could not pay for anything beyond $273 and we got screwed. 

SAME FOR LEXINGTON MY FRIEND! I thought Nashville this past May for U2 was bad, this is a whole new level of BS. Ticketmaster buying them up and scalping them as "Official Plat. Seats" isn't helping. The whole waiting in line thing DOES NOT WORK! Make all tickets will call at the entrance, you have to have your photo id and credit / debit card to get in with your whole party. That's the ONLY WAY to stop this. Garth Brooks did it here in Charleston, WV. Sold out 7 shows, every single last one of them in the arena were fans that paid FACE VALUE for tickets... Just annoying for fans. The Fan Club presale was trash, the Arena presale was trash, this whole experience was trash. Sad thing is, and I pray that people DO NOT pay scalper prices for these tickets. We need to show these jerks that this is unacceptable. I could never in good conscious rip you guys off on tickets... 

LOL!
