For years people have been complaining about bots and scalpers purchasing most of the tickets sold on Ticketmaster and then resold for much higher prices. This morning at 9 AM, Beyonce and Jay Z tickets went on sale for their upcoming OTRT II tour. Some people complained tickets were sold out as early as 9:01 AM. Others experienced difficulties when the Ticketmaster website crashed.
Beyonce and Jay z tickets are almost 1300 dollars. For that price I better see Sir and Rumi, I need a house tour, Solange better reenact the elevator fight. I better meet the real Becky with the good hair. The carters and Ticketmaster done lost they damn minds

I just saw one of my all-time favorite bands last week for $15. This week I see that people are willing to finance a second mortgage to buy Beyonce and Jay-Z VIP from Ticketmaster pic.twitter.com/nhwBcmnJf4

Disappointed doesn’t even begin to cover it. I had my #OTRII presale code. I was at my computer on Ticketmaster at 9am. But still I see ‘Sorry, no tickets match your search’. How are we supposed to compete with these turbo bots. It said no tickets available by 9:01am. ??? pic.twitter.com/WpTzUzRNhb

Bruh, @Ticketmaster 100% didn’t block the bots. I was shown tickets at 9:04ish (didn’t want floor seats) and when I refreshed for lower level it said all tickets were gone.
