^Ticket Master was the beginning of the end for fair ticketing. The fairness of a lineup ended when venues outsourced.

What happened to the days when you would skip school and  line up at Ticket Master at 6 AM in the morning?

When I go on it says general sales don't start until March 17. I'm confused. Then again, $37 for rear balcony and $100 to be close? Sort of less than enthusiastic about that price, even for the Moore...even for Fripp's Crimson.

Yes public gen sales is next week.....good luck! I am sure some were saved. 
I have an STG (Seattle Theater Group) code to unlock the pre-sale event.

Still the ticket bots blew the first 20 rows out within 1-2 minutes....They are already on StubHub and various other online ticket sites for 2-3x value. I paid $87.00 a pc........I am happy regardless.

I think at this point I would rather see 3-4 smaller shows at Croc for the same total cost. Or 2 shows and and chile rellanos for me and my wife. 

What are your STG dues if you don't mind me asking?

Didn't your areas have a pre-sale?  I got a presale for the Denver show; Row 5 in the right (left?) side of the stage.

Ticketb*****d got hammered by bots the first day of sale for the Toronto show as well. I took the day off work & sat refreshing the screen for most of the day, watching each pair of prime, clicked-upon seats I reserved disappear as the software refused to complete every transaction. By mid afternoon I gave up refreshing and ordered by phone. Ticketb*****d's voice recognition robot offered me seats that were as far away from the band as you could get without standing outside the venue. Bitterly disappointed. Resale tickets at 2 to 5 times purchase price were already offered online before noon. Ticketb*****d 'limiting' purchases to 8 tickets per person probably didn't help matters for fans like me, who only wanted a pair.

Saw KC in San Fransisco at the Warfield in 2014. If memory serves, tickets were something like $85 or $90.

Assuming it's affordable, I'll hopefully be making the Seattle show.

I saw them back in the 80s 3 times. It was nice to have consistency in the lineup. Wish I could have seen them '73-'74 the ultimate lineup. I like the more compact KC lineups. When Fripp started with the double trio sh*t I went.. whaaaat? This double quartet crap is just King Crimson in name. Crimson belonged to an era. They also fit in nicely from 1980-84. Now it's just a conflagration. Whoever Fripp can get. Not saying it will be sh*t but don't look at it as KC per se. Might go to the Toronto show if my schedule permits.
