Swedish House Mafia had one goal at Madison Square Garden: Become the first EDM act to sell out the venue. Mission accomplished.
Make Sure to grab your tickets!
Okay, okay.. back to the story.
Just minutes into the pre-sale it seemed that Ticketmaster was already having trouble keeping up with the massive demand for a show that doesn’t take place until December.
In under an hour all tickets for Swedish House Mafia at Madison Square Garden were sold out. Not just the presale tickets, but all tickets. All the while, the group has been promising their fans to do whatever possible to make it right. A couple ideas including a second day and/or changing the stage configuration were thrown around.. but why all the outrage?
Oh yeah, ticket scalpers. A few scalpers are to be expected but one glance at StubHub shows 851 tickets for sale ranging in price from $158 to an insane $99,995 (we’re going to assume that one’s a joke but shouldn’t there be a limit?).
