Today, I drove six hours with a friend to see one of her favorite bands in concert. We were turned away at the door because the online site didn't say we had to be 21 to enter. I drove six hours back with nothing to show for it but an empty gas tank and useless tickets. FML

I don't know if you noticed, but OP specified that there was nothing about the age restriction on the website...

who wants to sign up for the lynch mob thats goin after backformorebitch?

Did your white trash did beat your fat ***** of a mom while she was hitting the crack pipe when she was born with your worthless ******* ass? You're probably some fat retarded kid with down-syndrome jacking off in his basement hoping your dad doesn't get too drunk again with his friends and use you as a human kicking/punching bag. Worthless ******. Lay off the twinkies and maybe someone will love your retarded ass.

Ooh ooh! I can bring the acetylene torches and napalm!

im confused. are you idiots talking about me? if not stop replying to my comment. dumbasses

Sorry about that. I was trying to respond to the lynch mob idea. The comment nesting system for this site doesn't work very well. And the mob would be organized in honor of 'backformorebitch'.

was my thought exactly, why not sell the tickets?

Because that's illegal. Sometimes you can get away with it while everyone's waiting in line before the show, but when someone's actually turning you away, that means doors are open, and the only people outside are stragglers and security guards.

technically it's only illegal if you sell them above the original price that is on the ticket. Or else, yes, it is illegal.

1. DUH! You always check the age limit to a show if you are underage 2. There are always people outside of shows looking to buy tickets so you could have sold them...unless it was a lame show, then I could see how you would not be able to sell them

At least scalp the tickets for gas money.

YDI. If you aren't 21, call the venue beforehand and ask. Better safe than sorry, especially if the show is that far away. You're an idiot.

If there is an age restriction they almost always post it on the site, or at least where I live they do. It's not OP's fault. The venue should post that information. I highly doubt you call venues before you go to shows either.

I didn't know that you had to be 21 to get into a Jonas Brothers concert

something tells me you didn't read the online site properly, YDI for not making sure if it was a 21+ show and as other has said you should of sold the tickets

Always. Call. Ahead. And I agree with previous posters - why didn't you scalp them?

That's why when you're underage, you check the age restrictions. Hell, I'm sure you probably could have just googled it an found out.
