Punk-rock trio Green Day is heading out on a massive world tour next year to support their forthcoming 14th studio album, yet fans who tried to purchase presale tickets were met with various woes.

“The Saviors Tour” presale tickets were available Wednesday morning. Many fans signed-up on the band’s website or bought a CD to ensure they would receive a presale access code, though at the time of the sale, some still did not receive the code. Others were met with error messages while trying to check-out on Ticketmaster.

Additionally, hundreds of fans trying to get the best view in the house — general admission — were left empty-handed. Some were forced to either buy seats in the back of the stadium or accept the fact that they’ll have to fight for their lives during the general public on sale this Friday.

Another issue at hand is Ticketmaster’s platinum pricing policy. We’ve seen it time and time again with big-name acts — of all genres. The ticketing giant uses “platinum pricing” and “dynamic pricing” to surge ticket prices based on demand. These prices have ultimately priced-out fans, leaving thousands unable to see their favorite artist in concert.

Blink-182 fans lashed out at the band and ticketing company after tickets were priced at $600 or more for floor seats and nearly $200 in the back of the arena. Similarly, Bad Bunny tickets sent fans into a frenzy; surged ticket prices ranged from $280 in the back sections of the venue to upwards $1,200 on the floor — all without fees included.

The exorbitant prices have caused fans to reach a breaking-point, with many opting out of the show all together. Unless something in the industry changes soon, that’s likely a trend that will continue.

“The Saviors Tour” will cross the U.K. and Europe, playing in Spain, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, and more from May through June. The North American leg kicks-off on July 29 at Washington, D.C.’s Nationals Park and runs through September 28, ending at San Diego’s Petco Park. The Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid, and the Linda Lindas will be along for the ride.

Tickets will head on sale to the general public on Friday, November 10. Fans can also score tickets via MegaSeats (and receive 10% off with the code “TICKETNEWS”), StubHub, or Ticket Club — where TicketNews readers can score a free membership with the code “TICKETNEWS.”
