Chili Peppers fans angry over iTunes ticket problem

Numerous Red Hot Chili Peppers fans are angry with Apple after not receiving their promised Ticketmaster pre-sale codes to purchase advance tickets for the band’s upcoming tour. As part of a promotion that launched early last month, iTunes users who pre-ordered the Chili Peppers new album “Stadium Arcadium” were told that they would receive a code via email on Monday, May 8, that would allow them to join in the pre-sale of tickets. However, the majority of those who pre-ordered the album have yet to receive their code, and ticket pre-sales began earlier today without the iTunes users being able to take part. A large number of complaints by Chili Peppers fans can be found in a discussion on Apple’s support forums.

One other thing that hasn’t been mentioned anywhere is that not all tour dates participated in the Ticketmaster pre-sales.  The Portland, OR show is one of the first ones on the tour and after I recieved my code I jumped to the Ticketmaster link to find that Portland isn’t listed.  Ticketmaster had a nice disclaimer stating that not all sites participated.  That would have been nice to know before I pre-ordered the album.  I like the rest of the stuff I recieved and the album is great, but now I have to hope there are tickets left when the regular ordering begins.

“Everyone knows that the double CD is the death knoll of any band.”

Ask fans of Nine Inch Nails what their opinion about The Fragile is. Some will probably even say that was Reznor’s best album.

“Ask fans of Nine Inch Nails what their opinion about The Fragile is..”

Ask me. I like Trent Reznor.  A FEW may say it’s his best work, but MOST will agree when I say that The Fragile is his weakest album. Yes, the White Album was great. Songs in the Key of Life is great as well. That was then, this is now. Music has changed a lot. Bands putting out 2xLP’s are reaching for something that they once had. And yes, I did hear Californication. Unfortunately I own it, along with “One Hot Minute”.. phew.. what a stinker that was… We need more songs with the word California or derivatives of it like we need a hole in the head….
