Another day, another ticketing glitch.
During the initial on-sales on February 28, many Elton John and Billy Joel fans experienced challenges in purchasing tickets to the first-ever concert at Nationals Park on July 11, due to technical issues with the online ticketing system. Nationals Park is home to the Washington Nationals baseball team in Washington, DC.
The system has since been corrected, and due to the inconvenience many fans experienced, additional seats will be released for purchase on March 9 at 10 a.m., exclusively through Tickets.com. Ticket prices are $182, $102 and $56.50 plus applicable service charges.
“During the initial on-sale, our online ticketing system experienced an issue that limited fans’ ability to access tickets for a period of time,” said Larry Witherspoon, CEO of Tickets.com, in a statement. “We have resolved the issue and we apologize for any resulting inconvenience. We look forward to providing fans with a consistent, positive ticket-buying experience during the on-sale scheduled for Monday, March 9.”
“The Nationals are thrilled to host the Face to Face Tour with Elton John and Billy Joel for the first ever concert at Nationals Park,” added Nationals President Stan Kasten. “Elton and Billy are beloved throughout Washington, DC, and have a rich history performing in our city. Undoubtedly, this will be a remarkable inaugural evening of music out under the stars, showcasing the ballpark’s capabilities as a premiere summer concert venue.
