The Hall of Fame tickets sold out damn near instantly. I tried ordering them starting at 10:00 and kept getting a message saying it couldn't locate any available tickets. Tried it for half an hour with no luck. I finally decided to head to an FYE figuring the web site was just screwed up. After talking to the guy at FYE, that's how it was in store, too. He was nice enough to check again but only found a single ticket instead of the three I needed.
The good news is I was able to get tickets off Ticketmaster's website later in the afternoon, so I'm not sure if they released more seats or what happened. But it wouldn't expect it to be harder to get HoF tickets than tickets for Wrestlemania.
Here are some more thoughts from a demented mind in Central Florida: I'm surprised that the HOF sold out so quickly. I drove to the Amway Arena last Saturday morning and got there about 10-15 minutes before tickets went on sale at 10:00 a.m. I was only 12th in line, and got 4 tickets in Section 110 in almost no wait time. If the HOF is actually being held at Amway Arena as opposed to, say, Bob Carr Center, that's still several thousand people that can get in.
Why yes, I am both a musician and a lawyer. Thanks for asking. :)
I know most of you are probably going to disagree with my opinion on this subject, but I'll say it anyway. The brand extention should be put to an end, but not only that, there should be a lot of "trimming the fat" if you know what I mean.
