So when it comes to getting tickets, their are a couple of tricks to getting tickets on Ticketmaster.
We'll share one with you: DSL, T-1, or whatever is really fast.
DSL or any fast connection is vital if you are going get tickets.
If a show is hot, and you have dial-up, you are fucked.
If for some reason you are stuck with dial-up, go to a friend's house and use their internet connection.
Ticketmaster online sales work like a race: the first one to get in line gets tickets.
Fast internet connection gets you in line faster than a dial-up.
