After pre-sales, will there be Paul McCartney tickets left for general sale on Monday? Your Stories

SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) - For Paul McCartney Club Members and American Express Cardholders, tickets for the Carrier Dome concert in September are already on sale.

On Friday morning at 10:00, the pre-sales extends to Syracuse University alumni, SU and ESF students, SU faculty, season ticket holders and donors.

It's not until Monday morning that anybody can buy a ticket.

NewsChannel 9's Your Stories Inbox has been filling up with emails from Paul McCartney fans who don't fit those groups, concerned there won't be any seats available on Monday.

Carrier Dome Managing Director Pete Sala tells NewsChannel 9: "Monday morning, when we go on sale, every price level has to be available to the consumer."

Sala explains that pre-sale customers only have access to a limited number of tickets in every price level. Once that limit is sold-out, even pre-sale customers need to wait for tickets to open up to everyone.

Pre-sale tickets give the concert promoter more control over who buys the tickets. It assures actual fans get the first tickets, instead of broker websites buying them in bulk to jack up the price.

Sala suggests fans who need to wait until Monday log on early.

The Paul McCartney Concert Promoter has these guidelines:

  1. Tickets that appear on broker sites are often fraudulent and we cannot verify the authenticity of any tickets that appear on those sites. It should be noted that just because a ticket appears on a broker site, it does not necessarily exist.
  2. With regard to the American Express pre-sale, purchasers are able to click on the link that includes the pre-sale tickets which appear at all face value prices.  There are also higher priced tickets which include various levels of VIP experience which are available for purchase, but are separate from the pre-sale.
  3. Tickets are being held for the general public on-sale on Monday at all price levels.

To ensure fans get the official pricing, they should use the official website, Ticketmaster.

Pre-sale customers can buy now. The general public can buy on Monday at 10 a.m.
