Tiger Lilly. Welcome. To learn everything about tickets go to the BM site. Click on tickets and read all of it. If you haven't already bought any tickets this year you can get all the info there on how to. Good luck.

Situation Normal: All Fucked Up.

Same as every year for the last few, the main sale was a shit show, those who knew to abuse the system got in while those who followed the instructions generally got hosed, and the Org will continue to be baffled how this happens every year.

I thought the org would release something a bit more than "there is more demand than tickets" response. We could have conducted a stress test on the new system to work out some of the kinks before the official date. I doubt a ticket sale "redo" would be realistic or feasible, but there is a sense that the numbers are off especially in the 5 years I've been following this rodeo. I hope they do a throughout follow-up and explanation of what when wrong.

Hopefully, they can determine which tickets have been bought by bots and removed from the system. I think its time the org look into some cybersecurity support staff, especially around ticket sales, StubHub, etc. I don't think it will ever be fixed completely, but there are some areas where there is room for improvement.
If people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done.
