Ugh. So I tried to purchase Van Halen tickets the old-fashioned way last weekend (well, through ticketmaster.com) to no avail.They were sold out when I attempted my purchase at 10:05 am. Apparently there are fellow David Lee Roth fans in this fine city. I also tried Ace Ticketing, where the cheapest Halen tickets were $199 each for nosebleeds. I wonder whether my half-ironic love of "Panama" and "Running with the Devil" is worth 200 clams.
