    Last summer I got shafted by a teenager on Ebay. Willingly, to a point. I bought two seventh row concert tickets to Rascal Flatts for my daughter and I. I paid $125 for them and discovered when they arrived that the face value for each ticket was $10. So...

    Yesterday it was announced that Shania Twain will be playing at Key Arena in Seattle on June 18. The tickets go on sale December 6. They expect it to sell out quickly. There was a presale event last night during her special. I bought 8 tickets, 25th row. $80 each. I plan to sell six of them on Ebay in the late spring. Last night two tickets to the Anaheim show were up to $350 on Ebay.

    I'm a bit nervous about it but I know I can at least get the face value back. I'm pretty sure I'll make enough to cover my two tickets for my daughter and I.

    You gotta love Ebay.

    good luck princess

    i guess everyone's experience is different. scooter and i went to the creed concert, march of last year. the tickets i bought were on yahoo auctions, not much more expensive than through ticketmaster and MUCH better seats than what were still available. i'm sure you'll have no problem selling the tickets and whomever gets them will be thrilled.

    I think you'll get your money and then some for the concert. If Shania gets any hotter between now and then you'll get 1000 bucks a seat

    You should get your money back and then some. Those tickets will be in demand. I've sold some things on Ebay and done very well.

    Princess aka JWD Scalper. This will be the start of your new business venture.

    Now if you can find me tickets to the Nickleback concert here that sold out in under 2 hours I'd gladly pay you a premium for them.


    Princess, I hope you reported your preivous shafting incident to the Ebay people. They want to stay a credible and reputable way of buying and selling. The crooks will be banned from selling on ebay again if you let them know. Good luck with this purchase!
