I wasted 20 minutes this morning and almost $50 as well trying to buy misleading/fake tickets to Nevermore!
It all started when I got an email from Eventful, which noted that Nevermore was playing near me! I was like Holy Shit! How did I not hear about this?! So I click the link in my email as seen below:
Which takes me to the Eventful webpage for Nevermore:
(sorry pics don’t fit well in this blog layout, but you can click for full size)
And their description below this was what you’d expect:
So I’m excited and click to go buy from Ticketmaster, and here is what I see:
Hmm, this doesn’t seem right, what the hell is this L’Oreal crap, and why are they playing at the Elgin Theater, a play house, which I’ve never seen a Metal band play at? Maybe somehow they are in this arts festival?
So I decide to double check Ticketmaster, looking up Nevermore:
Ok that doesn’t make much sense, but maybe Ticketmaster is just retarded as usual and doesn’t recognize them because they aren’t playing alone and as part of a (arts) festival??
Lets click on Nevermore just to make sure:
Ok, that picture is fucked up, but maybe they are that weird, no wait, their pics on Eventful were fucking badass Metal, and I recognize that guy with the beard…but the description is definitely talking about Nevermore.
Let’s check out what this festival site has:
So far this still isn’t looking right…
Let’s see Nevermore under events:
Ok, WTF is this?!! This is definitely not the band Nevermore, I know they are into some dark shit and maybe Poe might make sense, but I’m pretty sure this is a theater production, and looking in the details that is what it appears to be…BUT you will notice that this is the SAME FUCKING PICTURE that Ticketmaster used for the Band!!
What the fuck is going on here?
Obviously these sites are using autopopulate algorithms to find what is going on and pulling info from Wikipedia or something, but this is just fucked, wrong pictures, wrong cross overs, and kind of misleading, Especially from Eventful which had the right picture and information pertaining to the band Nevermore!
I’m glad that I got my sleep this morning and I’m also glad I didn’t find this deal while I was drinking or else I might have bought a ticket without looking a little deeper. Maybe the play would be cool, but I’d be pissed if I drove 1.5 hours decked out in Metal show gear to a frickin’ arts festival play!
Also didn’t make much sense that Nevermore would play 3 days in a row including an afternoon show as well on Saturday! I admin I wasted a bit more time that I should have looking at what seats I could get before really realizing something was off, but when you find out that a show you really want to see is on tonight and tomorrow, you start to get excited, panic, and go MUST LOOK FOR GOOD TICKETS!
What The FUCK Eventuful and Ticketmaster?! You guys fucking suck and almost confused me into buying tickets for a play!
