I couldnt get any good tickets, so I was thinking of buying tickets from scalpers. Has anyone experienced this? How much did you pay for your tickets? Did you ever get ripped off or scammed? There are always guys out front of Massey Hall selling tickets. I do know that they will try telling you that bad seats are good ones, so you have to know the seating plan of the Hall.

This is just MY opinion, but I have always had good luck with scalpers. I have been to sporting events and concerts on the "last minute" as if going at all, was an after thought. Of course it does help to have a seat chart when you make your deal.

Also, don't be afraid to barter the price you pay.
If it's getting close to "show time" they sometimes take less than face value. I have even traded my poor tickets + $$$ for better seats than what I bought through ticketmaster.. Scalpers are capitalist and just trying to make some money.........they are probably no more or less dishonest than any other proffesion. Again, just My opinion.
