That was even faster than Wednesday this is such bullshit

They were gone in less than 10 seconds this time. All 1000+ they had left. I’ll repost the link from earlier telling why it’s nearly impossible for us mere humans to obtain highly sought after tickets online.

Well, someone had to buy them. 155 on Stubhub, 1800 capacity theater. Not many on eBay at the moment.

I’ll take that Steve.

Hi Brian,

I’m really sorry, but the cart timed out. Not really counting on pulling up another, but I’m still refreshing. Will post here again if I pull anything up.

no idea if this was already mentioned here, but the guardian music wrote a (fairly ridiculous, imo) article on this show http://www.theguardian.com/music/2014/may/15/the-strokes-live-return-to-new-york-city

Albert asking to open for AM and then complaining about it publicly made me fall out of my chair. You’re a god-damned STROKE, Albert. It is like he’s begging a little brother to share a popsicle. Yes, I can see why it would be a good bill, but if they said no, let that be the end of it. Clearly, it has been WAY too long since The Strokes played live, it seems Albert has forgotten how fucking important he is. You dated Turner’s ex for christ sake, forget about opening for them and get back to playing that sweet rhythm guitar for the best rock band on the planet.

161 Steve May 16, 2014 at 9:21 am

The Guardian article is supremely odd.

And incorrect: PLAY COMEDOWN MACHINE SONGS.

162 Hooray! May 16, 2014 at 9:24 am

Got 2 general admission ones. And I’m not a bot. :) Though I am still shaking. That was crazy.

163 Brian Wallace May 16, 2014 at 9:48 am

Congratulation to everyone who got tickets. What’s the capacity? 1,800. And after a half an hour over 200 are on StubHub? Nonsense.

Steve, I’ll take the ticket if you haven’t moved it yet.

“You dated Turner’s ex for christ sake”

So i guess that’s why Albert said that Turner maybe hate him XD

169 ? May 16, 2014 at 8:05 pm

Albert never dated one of Alex’s exes, I think you mean Miles Kane.

170 mimi May 16, 2014 at 8:39 pm

I believe it was Alexa Chung who AHJ dated briefly after she was with Turner for a few years…

People with tickets, how early do you plan to get there?

175 Tom Mikluch May 31, 2014 at 9:31 am

Hey guys, I have 2 additional tickets to see the show tonight (May 31) at Portchester; willing to sell at face value ($30 plus the $10 service fee from TicketFly). I refuse to put these on StubHub given the crazy mark ups and rather sell it to a real fan.

Drop me an email at tom.mikluch [at] mac.com if you’re interested. Thanks!

176 Will May 31, 2014 at 11:31 am

Hey Tom, I just emailed ya!
