The Whelan seating was a fiasco. My order form had three price choices, with the highest being $134 (plus handling fee and facility fee). What I ended up with was tickets that cost $167 per ticket. I was never contacted by anyone to ask if I was willing to go into the higher price category. Nor was there anon the order form which asked if you would be willing to go into a higher price level if your price point is sold out. My tickets are in the last row of the first ring, in the center. This better be a damn good program considering the price. Too bad they had to turn Wendy's retirement into a little money making profit scheme, thereby diminishing the event.
That's really not too bad,abatt. I often sit in the first ring and without the discount, the tickets cost $150, so $167 doesn't seem so off the mark. But $100 for the 4th ring is definitely exploiting the viewer and turning this evening into a money profit scheme. We've never sat that far up (we're usually in orchestra or 1st ring). My husband is dreading it since our experience at the Royal Opera House Amphitheatre was miserable. But I want to be a part of this night si I'll settle for the seats I can.
Just want to clarify that I have a "create your own" subscription.
BTW, it's Aug.25 and my subscriber tickets have still not come, despite being paid for. If they don't come by next week it's another call to the supervisor.
