"Insider Tip about Pre-Sale Tickets… Yes they are usually Discounted… And often merely allow you to skip the box office line. But for the Producers/venues and promoters of events they are better than Antacids… When you put on an event you are laying hundreds or thousands of your own dollars on the line and a few hundred hours of your time and everyone else in the cast and crew’s time as well… That anxiety eats a hole in your gut until about half way through the event when you find out if you broke even or not. Until then you are distracted, anxious and sick to your stomach. Ulcers are common among “Show People”
High Presale Numbers let the promoter know in advance whether they stand a chance at breaking even. Whether their Event will be a success or not. They allow you to take a deep breath, Eat without getting a tummy ache and speak to people without being irritable.
If you would rather pay full price at the door because you want to support the artists/venues etc that bring you such amazing Live entertainment… Feel more than welcome to pay the difference in the ticket price when you get there… Donate the money to the band/actors etc… Or save it to buy Merchandise from the performers and venue.”
