  1. Can someone ask Robert (if there is a town hall q&a format today as I won’t be able most likely to listen in live) Question: what can be done moving forward about RP Verified Fan presales with Ticketmaster (aka Stubhub)? Many of us in the US got left out/ excluded from floor seats (as most floor tickets at the start of fan presales were already gone gone gone from Ticketmaster’s site at same time their Stubhub site had inflated prices for floor tickets). I along with many others around, attempted in good faith with (Chase, Amex, Citi) any possible credit card presale options, too with same results. It was a fiasco. There are currently only 12 US/N America 2018 dates. Question: Will any more cities be added? Example: Atlanta, GA or Florida??? And if so, what measures can be taken to ensure an equitable opportunity/ level playing field for purchase? thanks, R😎

  6. FYI: Walmart and Target stores in Atlanta do not carry “Carry Fire” (online only). Best Buy , a mom & pop one off and / or maybe selected Barnes & Noble bookstores are the only retail store with it. Otherwise, Amazon or directly from RP.com . Sad day in US music (retail) history. BTW, each retail listed above had 20 or more of the top 40 rap (crap) and pop ilk. P.S. I worked retail in a record store for years, during High school and college, so to see it come to this makes one think we are truly in the last days of physical media. After that, the cloud (digital space) will own you. Thankful that Robert (understand their customers/ listeners / fans) and company have released their latest project on multiple physical formats. Their record label reps need to get on the ball and stock retail shelves with this great album. We’re probably the last generation to buy physical media. R😳
  7. Thx Sam. Can’t wait til Friday to listen to Robert’s new album. R😎
  8. He’s on Jools Holland (taping today). It’s airs soon on BBC and then BBC America afterwards. I’m sure there’s some footage from today in youtube. until then, here’s the official video of “Bones of Saints”: R😎

  15. It should be a debate between Jimmy and Robbie Williams considering their feud regarding Robbie trying to disrupt their neighborhood by remodeling / shaking foundation of his house. R😎
  16. Robert Plant US tour 2018

    It might be some Silicon Valley tech startup company CEO , some billionaire daughter's sweet sixteen birthday or some major corporation(s) (like an ENRON ; remember them????) buying them up in one swoop beforehand for an office party, which is why they're gone beforehand ???? I have my theories and they're all NOT good at all for the true fans. R😳
  17. Robert Plant US tour 2018

    Having worked in the media, one can write / call, etc (BBB, State Attorneys General for each state, local & national news media: radio, tv stations, internet) as November sweeps are approaching. They're always looking for human interest & investigative reporting stories. As a fan of Robert Plant, Led Zeppelin and many other classic rock bands, something has to be done about these unfair business practices relating to Concert ticket sales. Some are saying they are doing some work but it hasn't been enough or quick enough to make an impact to swing things back to being a level playing field for the true fans. The same thing has been going on in sporting tickets as well. We can make a difference if we don't buy the tickets at the resale prices (from scalpers / brokers) and / or if we don't play their game. They'll have to change. R😎
  18. Robert Plant US tour 2018

    Something is seriously wrong (wirefraud???, ticket sellers websites hacked???, super secret fan clubs??? , credit card companies in collusion with execs buying the floor and reselling / flipping them on bub snubb ????) when most of the floor tickets are gone before presales start. A federal investigation needs to be done. R😳
  19. These "special" presales are nothing but a sponsored cash grab for credit card companies and the brokers / scalpers are making even more money at the fans expense. When The tickets on the main floor at the start of the presales are all but gone, there's something seriously wrong. We've Jumped through Enough hurdles to attempt to get decent tickets in the same zip code to the front of the stage with little to Nothing to show for it. Glad at least a couple of you got some tickets. We just want a level playing field. On a side note: What they need to do at venues is enforce a no video w/ cell phone policy for ticket holders on the floor, so those the fake fans (you know the type: man bunned , skinny jeaned, trendy beard wearing " alt-Americana" ) who hold their cameras up to take selfies and talk during the entire concert need to be escorted to the back or out of the Building. R😔
  20. Robert Plant US tour 2018

    Unbelievable how one person can be in 2nd row with person behind them getting tickets in 17th row. Then you get 22nd row. Doesn't that sound odd? Sounds like more shenanigans with Ticketmaster/ Stubhubb and/or ticket brokers during the presales. I think I'm done with going to major concerts (unless there is a real level playing field enforced ; where brokers / scalpers are declared illegal business practices once again). Sounds like they want to take every bit of fun out of the experience. For those of you who got decent tickets enjoy. R😎
  21. I don't think codes are transferable (from city to city). They are unique per person per individual city for one purchase of up to 4 tickets in one transaction. Hope you can get decent floor tickets. It'd be nice if we all (from the forum) could get decent pre-sale tickets. R😎
  22. Hope y'all fared better with getting presale Robert Plant North American tour tickets this morning. This new Ticketmaster system is worse than previous one, as the floor is gone after less than two minutes for the February 11th Charlotte, NC show. I'm not driving 4 hours and paying $184 for two balcony tickets. No way. I'd only pay that much for two floor seats down front (and this is the presale with the special code???). 😳 Hope Robert adds Atlanta or does one more US concert date with Jimmy, JPJ & Jason. Otherwise, I'm done. R😎
  23. Ok. I guess they only have special pre-sale for selected cities then of the 2017 twelve North American tour dates listed. I hope they add Atlanta as I don't want to travel 300 miles to NC to see Robert when he's always toured in Atlanta. Maybe they'll add another leg (but maybe they won't). R😎
  24. Did you pre-register? If so, then you'd receive another page of info relating to Ticketmaster in cooperation with Robert's North American tour ticket sale including policy, 2 to 4 hours prior to presale time / date for the city you selected (4 ticket maximum per person w/ no multiple registrations per address , etc. check your email spam filter ahead of time before sale. Ticketmaster also mentioned not worrying about "brokers" having tickets listed before actual sale as they are not verified seats/tickets for sale (just speculated / most likely by computer algorithms/ bots). I actually used to sell concert tickets, back in the early days of the consumer boom of the internet, so I know how these systems generally work (as an employee and a consumer). Hope that helps. Read all of the Ticketmaster policy and email / directions provided above posts via links and once you register. R😎
