--------------------------------------------------

The purpose of this blog is to monitor the price and sale of 7 scalped Phish tickets to the "sold out" concert at Shoreline Ampitheater. More details below.

--------------------------------------------------


Everyone loves a good mystery, right?

Today's mystery focuses on seven (7) fourth row center seats for the Phish concert at Shoreline Ampitheater this summer.

As you may know, the Shoreline show "sold out" in seconds, with the majority of fans unable to get even a lawn seat.

You may also know there was a 2 seat limit per household and per credit card.

Yet within seconds of the onsale, these seats appeared on multiple "secondary" websites, including "TicketsNow," which is owned by Ticketmaster.

"Section 102, Row CCC - Up to 7 seats together."

These seats, originally $50, are now on sale for $1605. Each.

These same seats appear on Stubhub, Ebay, TicketsNow, and perhaps other sites.

QUESTION 1: WHERE DID THESE SEATS COME FROM?

- Brokers who somehow bought 7 seats in a row by logging in online?
- A lucky individual who somehow bought 7 seats in a row by logging in online?
- Ticketmaster/LiveNation/TicketsNow setting the seats aside for sale at markup?
- Trey and the boys scalping their own seats?

QUESITON 2: WHO WILL BUY THESE SEATS?

Somebody is going to be sitting in those seats. It will not be hard to find out who they are. Maybe that person will boast somewhere about their fantastic seats. Or if not, we can simply go to Row CCC the night of the show and see who is sitting there.
