Here's a cautionary tale:
My wife went on-line to buy doodlebops tickets. She used the link on the doodlebops site to TicketsNow.
We paid about $130 a ticket for premium seats in the front sections, which felt expensive.
However, we checked ticketmaster and found no seats available.
When we received the tickets they had a face value of $46 each.
While I'm grateful we could buy these tickets, I'm pretty pissed that we had to buy them through a scalper. More importantly, I think it's pretty sleazy of the doodlebops producers to direct consumers to a ticket reseller who charges a premium instead of ticket master or another primary service.
So, here is my advice if you want to see the doodlebops:
1. Use a ticketing service like ticket master to find when they're coming in advance.
2. Buy them through them
3. If you can't, go to Tickets Now to pay a premium
The only downside for saving the money is that you may not be in a front section.
