Well, that was fast. San Francisco's Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
holds about 7,000 people, but the free tickets to go see Britney Spears there on Sunday disappeared less than 10 minutes after going on sale at 9 a.m. this morning.
Twitter is of course filled with the gloating
of Britney ticket winners and the whining
of Britney ticket losers. But many are claiming -- as is common these days -- that the tickets were sold-out nearly instantly, or not available right at 9
Reactions of course included smugness, mild disappointment
, and bitter, hostile bigotry (see above). But one thing is clear now: Those free tickets are gone.
Of course, there are many people hawking them on Craiglist
, for prices ranging from $85 to $300. (One $500 seller's post has been flagged -- that's just sick, people.)
So did you get some or not? What was your experience trying to get the tickets to the show, parts of which which will be broadcast on Good Morning America next Tuesday? Tell us in the comments below.
