TAKE MY HAND, WE’LL MAKE IT I SWEAR

Got my Bon Jovi tickets last week and from the prices given here , the $199 tickets must be gone as well as the $350ish pit seats. For those that wonder where the good seats “go” when buying tickets to any show, they are bought by fan club members who buy during the pre-sale time.
