We know that many people are as frustrated by presales as we are. Sadly many venues jealously guard their own subscriber base (who, looking at Ticketmaster resales, often use this simply as a way to profiteer). That is one of the main reasons why we started the Royal Packages.
We do endeavour whenever possible to get the codes from venues and promoters, and then share them in the DGM newsletters, so please do check. For Oakland, we understand, hot off the presses, that BEAUTYS may unlock the hidden treasures.
