Britney Spears at Bill Graham Tickets Sell Out -- Instantly?

Tried, but didn't win. And I was so looking forward to torturing the hubby with Britney Spears tickets.less than a minute ago via HTC Peep


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.

BUT THE FACT THAT IM NOT GOING TO SEE BRITNEY SPEARS IS A TRAGEDY I BLAME EXCLUSIVELY ON THE GAYS.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone


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.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
