The Rageful Tweets of A Nation of LCD Soundsystem Fans Defeated By Ticketmaster

It's official: LCD Soundsystem will say farewell on April 2, 2011, at Madison Square Garden, to an audience comprised entirely of ticket scalpers and StubHub captcha bots. It was a grim scene this morning on Ticketmaster and Twitter, where LCD fans went first to one and then the other, crying out in pain at their lack of tickets. This show seems to have sold out in about 10 seconds flat; now all that's left are the sad Tweets to remember it by. Well, that and a bunch of probably ill-advised Egypt jokes. The best of both, right here, starting with anguish, of course:

And then, inevitably, came the jokes:

And, just in case you weren't sufficiently traumatized, let's recap:

Ticks r always 2 expensive- i wouldn't pay $20.00 for LCD schlecksystem oh sob oh moan they're breaking up- faking up is more like it. Fatboy Slim did it earlier & better. Good riddance.

It's not just TicketMaster's fault... It's the whole industry.. And more importantly, it's the jackasses that are willing to pay hundreds of dollars to see a 90 minute concert. You're a fool if you think that the agent, the venue, the promoter, perhaps even the artist, and everyone else on the "inside" isn't passing tickets to brokers or selling them on StubHub. One way to fix this... refuse to go to big shows.

Not that I wanted tickets, but I try to buy direct from the artist. It has worked for NIN and it can work for other bands.

Thank you for this (funny tweeting bastards & Zach for posting them). Makes me feel a little better about having even less of a shot getting one lousy ticket then I originally thought. That "Sorry no matches were found" window is burned into my retinas.

*3 hours. Their goodbye show is 3 hours long. For those keeping score, LCD will be playing longer than Avatar.

18 kinds of awesome that actual fans won't be able to see now. Such BS.

Actual fans will be able to see the show. They were just unable to pay face value for the tickets. It's kind of amazing that so many people are simply unaware that a secondary market for tickets exists. It sucks that they're going to have to pay more (or less) for these tickets at a later time.

Tickets are available on Stubhub for higher prices, and they added 4 club dates, which should effect the price of the msg tix on the secondary market.
