Pre-sale tickets to see the hit musical Hamilton as it tours San Francisco were selling like legit Broadway tickets today: Entering a queue at 10 a.m., American Express cardholders vied online to score seats at $100 to $190 for regular seats and even $524 for premium spots at the show as it pulls into town from March 14 through August 5. But according to SFGate, many thousands were left in the online queue helpless and ticketless.
Meanwhile, scumbags across the internet were busy reselling tickets for the SF shows on Stubhub almost immediately. Nice work, assholes. Maybe Alexander Hamilton's financial system... was bad!
For those planning to play the de facto Hamilton lottery next Monday when general ticket sales start at 10 a.m., bear this in mind:
The brisk sales are further indication that San Franciscans couldn't give a shit about a proposed boycott of the the musical after a dustup following Vice President-Elect Mike Pence and his chilly reception at the show on Broadway. Anyway, see you on the other side!
