Use Ticketfly to Purchase Staind Tickets
Exactly what is Ticketfly? The Ticketfly ticketing system is the fastest growing, independent ticketing and social marketing platform to purchase concert tickets online. Founded in 2008 by Andrew Dreskin and Dan Teree, Ticketfly promises a 30 percent lower ticket fees than Ticketmaster. Q103 opted to go with Ticketfly.com for our Thanksgiving Hangover show featuring Staind because we wanted to keep ticket prices low for our listeners.
Ticketfly also intends to differentiate itself from Ticketmaster by making it fast and easy for venues and promoters to update show information and promulgate it on social networks. Ticketfly also plans to offer discounts to fans who post ticketing links to their social networking friends.
Ticketfly has an interesting origin story, the company’s co-founders sold their first startup, TicketWeb to Ticketmaster for $35 million in 2000 and then left that company in 2008 to form Ticketfly.
Ticketfly founders felt that Ticketmaster was missing out on a opportunity by not using social marketing and they realized there was a market in catering to the small venues. That is what really sets ticketfly apart from Ticketmaster- it offers promoters the chance to create a Ticketfly Events page, an integrated Concert site and Facebook Event. Promoters save time and money as well as making it easy for the consumer to purchase tickets with smaller service fees. Consumers will also be able to purchase tickets to show thru a ticketfly mobile app.
Ticketfly is more than just ticketing – it’s mission is to build out all of the technologies that make marketing and communicating with fans easier and faster so venues and artists can sell more tickets.

The Q103 Thanksgiving Hangover featuring Staind will be using the Tickefly ticketing system. After purchasing a ticket, expect tickets to arrive in the mail within a few days. Should you purchase tickets less than 10 days prior to the show, your tickets will be held at the Washington Avenue Armory Will Call Window. Tickets for the Hangover go on sale to the public on Friday October 21st 10a thru www.ticketfly.com. Search for the show and venue. Prices are $25 prior to show and $35 on day off. This will be a general admission show – Keep in mind the Washington Avenue Armory is a small venue and tickets will go fast!
Members of the Q Army will get a email on Thursday with a pre-sale link and password to purchase tickets before the general public. If you are not a member of the Q Army you’ll have until 9am on 10/20 to sign up and receive the pre-sale opportunity. Sign up now.
