I'd like to think this problem will change but it has been happening for years and most venues and ticket promoters don't seem to care enough to make a change.
I was baffled how the venue and the company that sells the tickets for them in seattle had no idea what they were talking about. They both said the show was sold out after the pre sale. Only the promoter mikethrasherpresents was able to tell me more would go on sale at 10am on the correct day.
