[UPDATED] EXCLUSIVE: How to Get Tickets to the Green Day Secret Show In Costa Mesa: Don't Bother Lining Up Right Now
Christopher Victorio/OC Weekly
UPDATE, AUGUST 11, 2011, 1:03 P.M.: Within a matter of seconds, not even a minute, the tickets to the Green Day show sold out. Bummer! But don't feel bad if you didn't get a ticket, you're not alone. Many fans are upset too, and they're venting their anger on the band's Facebook page. "This was bullshit," Westminster resident and Green Day fan Zach Hammill wrote commented on the last status uptdate. "As a long time SoCal fan, I'm pretty upset. I was on top of that. I was refreshing my page every .0001 seconds. As soon as the button appeared, I clicked it, put in the code, and still got screwed. I type 74 words per minute."
Not that it would make a difference anyway, because the tickets, which cost $20, aren't on sale yet, and won't be until 1 p.m. tomorrow. How can you get one? Find out after the jump.
If you want to get a ticket, you will have to check out Green Day's Facebook page tomorrow, which is where they're releasing information on where to buy tickets. Only 250 tickets will be made available; the venue has a maximum capacity of 300.
But unless you get one of the 250 tickets, you won't get in. John says not even TMZ (who've contacted the bar), will get special treatment.
