Gopher Hockey Tickets

Minnesota Gopher Hockey Tickets have hit the market and they are expensive with a capital "E". My favorite online Minnesota Ticket Broker is charging anywhere from $69/Ticket to get in for the game on 11/2 versus the Denver Pioneers to $169/Ticket for the North Dakota game on 2/1. Keep in mind that there are seldom deals to be had outside Mariucci Arena on game days and that if you have to see a particular Gopher Hockey game, buy them ahead of time. In years past, prices have risen as the season goes on because the Minnesota Gophers are always a factor in the WCHA. GO GOPHERS!!!

Lion King at Historic Orpheum Theatre

Lion King revisits the Twin Cities this fall with more than one month of performances at the Historic Orpheum Theatre downtown Minneapolis. The shows start this week and are basically sold out through Ticketmaster. However, it is still possible to buy tickets online from Ticket King. There were VIP seats available in the first ten rows of the main floor that come with some sort of souvenir. The face value of that type of seat is $140/ticket. Ticket King is currently selling those for around $250/ticket. It is definitely expensive but it is the price that you have to pay if you want to see this Broadway classic in your home town. I did notice that you can get a bargain on Orpheum Theatre Tickets for Lion King this weekend. Maybe by holding out, the prices will also drop on future performances?

Inside Edition New York will be at Hannah Montana Concert

There is no doubt that Hannah Montana is the latest media craze and I have received notice that Inside Edition New York will be at the Target Center this Sunday night to interview parents who paid high prices for their Hannah Montana Miley Cyrus tickets. Here is a message from their office:

Everybody seems to be overpaying for Hannah Montana Tickets and Inside Edition would love to speak with parents who overpaid the most. If you bought your tickets from a scalper, auction, or ticket-broker that charged you over $1,000 per ticket, please contact Alicyn. She will be happy to set up an interview for you with the IE crew at Sunday’s show.

You can reach her by email:

Please include the price you paid, how many tickets you bought, the age(s) of your child(ren) and a phone number where you can be reached.

Hannah Montana Tickets

I don't know how the rest of you feel but I am getting very sick of all of the whiners out there who are complaining about not being able to buy Hannah Montana Tickets at face value when they first went on sale. Obviously, there are more than 18,000 fans that want to attend the show at the Target Center, yet I keep hearing complaints about how much the Minnesota Ticket brokers are charging. I have a message to all of those who think that it is their god given right to buy Hannah Montana Tickets at face value, tickets are a market driven commodity and if their is more demand than supply the prices soar. I have made the decision to not buy my daughter tickets because they are being sold for more than I am comfortable spending. My daughter and I have made peace with the fact that we aren't going to the show. I just wish everyone else out there would either spend the money to go or do the same.
