Big Blue Madness tickets distributed in an hour

Here is your one reminder that Big Blue Madness tickets will be distributed at 10 pm tonight. If you’re not already in line outside Memorial Coliseum, you will have to go through Ticketmaster.com. There will be a limit of four tickets per person and online orders will come with a small service charge.

Good luck, everyone. The majority of you will strike out, but I’m pulling for you.

Go Cats.

    Same here…ticketmaster is the worst. By the time the page loaded the tickets were gone.

    Yeah, how is that even possible that it’s gone as soon as it loads?

    Pretty much what everyone said. I was on the page when the timer ran out and the tickets were gone within a minute.

    I was on ticketmaster waiting when the clock went off, I got nothing, been trying every since. A lot of people I know got 4 uppers, and said they would have gotten more. Something is wrong here.

    After three straight years of being shutout online, I finally grabbed 4 uppers. This year, I read that the secret is apparently the iPhone app, which bypasses security code input. Had four different desktop browsers open, an Android app and an iPhone app. The only successful device was the iPhone, for whatever reason. A couple of my friends had the same experience. Ticketmaster is beyond terrible.

    Managed to get two singles using the app, but I don’t really want to go alone so there’s that.
