I am leery of this auction procedure... nowhere does it detail what the potential additional fees may be
...your credit card will be charged, a per ticket price equal to the amount you bid plus a delivery price (if applicable) and a processing fee....

does anyone know what these potential fees may be?! I dont mind spending a little extra on a ticket... but dont like committing to something blindly either.

EDIT : nevermind, I tried to do it anyways, and apparently someone in Canada cannot bid. I am a 20 minute drive from the border... but I guess I just have to buy tickets when they go on sale. :evil:

Information is not knowledge, Knowledge is not wisdom, Wisdom is not truth, Truth is not beauty, Beauty is not love, Love is not music, Music is the best.

I got two tickets to the 10/29 show in CT via the auction today and the service fees were less than I paid for the Halloween show which I bought via Ticketmaster but not via the auction.

I really like the idea that hardcore fans can obtain access to a limited amount of better tickets. I live in Florida and having good seats helps justify the expense of traveling so far.
