Are the anti-scalping measures paying off? Are tickets too expensive? Or is Mr. Waits touring too often? Whatever it might be, the US leg of the Glitter and Doom tour so far has only sold out the venues in Phoenix, Houston, Columbus and Atlanta it seems.
Tickets still available for the other shows are not the best seats in the house, but a minute ago I could have bought balcony seats or similar for Jacksonville, Tulsa, Knoxville, Mobile and Birmingham. El Paso (orchestra floor) and Saint Louis (rear orchestra) seem to have even nicer spots left. Not to mention Dallas, where you can still buy general admission tickets.
I wonder how things will develop in Europe, where sales started yesterday (Milan).
