Linkin Park Tickets Not Close To Selling Out

This Thursday's Linkin Park gig was billed as the high profile event that would pack out Wrocław​'s much talked about Municipal Stadium. With many tickets still available however, the latest Stadion Wrocław​ concert looks like it could well go down as another flop. 

After failing on his promise to bring a 'star' act to Wrocław​ last year, city President Rafał Dutkiewicz ensured a big name would perform in the summer of 2014 at the Municipal Stadium. That name turned out to be American rock band Linkin Park, who were happy to book a date in Wrocław​ as part of their European Tour. 

The band's loyal fans soon rushed to buy tickets at the earliest opportunity, with the 'Golden Circle' tickets near the stage selling out. The best seats near the stage have also been selling well since they were made available online in February, with only individual places left. 

Nevertheless, there is a chance that just about everywhere else in the stadium will be sparsely populated if eventim.pl is anything to go by. Despite there being just over two days to the concert,  batches of 8 seats altogether are available in stands 1,2 and 3, while the same is also true in the VIP section. There are plenty of standard standing tickets left too. 

The poor sales have affected the second hand market, with people now unable to go to the gig prepared to shift their tickets on the likes of Gumtree and Allegro for prices significantly lower than their face value. In the Gumtree posting shown below for example, a seller is trying to shift the tickets by cutting 100zl off the price. 

In order to get bums on seats for Municipal Stadium events in the past, the organisers have sometimes offered massively discounted ticket packages to large companies. We are however unaware of this tactic being repeated this year.
