View Full Version : Be careful when buying show tickets online

On Friday I wanted to go to the Banderos concert/presentation of new album @ Arena nightclub. I knew it was going to be sold out so early on in the day I went online and purchased 2 tickets to the show.

I used kontramarka.ru. I ordered without paying and got an e-mail saying that my tickets can be picked up at the ticket counter until 9pm.

So anyway, got there at 8:45pm, and my tickets were already sold to someone else. What's more, the show was sold out. Great!

Luckily I found someone outside the club and bought tickets. Crisis avoided this time, next time however, I will be careful about buying tickets online and will just do so in person.

Oh yeah, the show was great, I'm not a huge fan but they put in 110% of their energy and effort. I really enjoyed it.

Glad you liked the show!

Frankly speaking I always book tickets via parter.ru and have never faced any problems.

Shitty deal. That's why you use one of those sellers that will ship them to you via courier.

Well worth the extra money.
