I've always stayed away from buying scalped tickets in the event they may be fake, etc. but I talked to a guy at a recent Metallica concert and he was telling me he buys tickets for a show a few minutes before every concert on the street. I thought surely he does this for good seats and gets ripped off but he told me he saves money doing this for every single show except when he went to see Billy Joel and Elton John. He went on to tell me he's gotten seats valued at $70 for $40, saved about $35 on a Kiss ticket when they came through on their 35 Alive tour, etc. I didn't see how this made sense as the scalpers need to make money (perhaps they get the tickets very cheap themselves?) but I have no experience buying them so I don't know. I was curious if anyone has done this before and what their experiences are.
