Fans trying to score tickets when they went on sale at 12 p.m. PST faced a massively backlogged site with tickets selling out in at most three to four minutes.
While some were lucky enough to get their ticket, countless fans are heartbroken about not being lucky enough. Take a look below for some of their reactions.
I got the exact same thing.

Got to front of @MCRofficial queue. Got a page that said “Your link is not valid.” Get dumped back to the Join Queue page and have to start all over. Man, I’ve been sitting at my computer all day for that. Bummed.

Some fans also shared concerns over the costs of AXS’ “premium” option. According to their site:
AXS Premium tickets give all fans safe and easy access to incredible tickets at market-driven prices for many of the most popular events. These in-demand tickets to concerts and other events are made available by artists and event organizers through AXS.
However, many fans compared the tactic to the site “scalping” their own tickets with prices fluctuating between users. See some of those reactions below.

If tickets are non-transferable/ can't be bought as a resell, then wtf is the justification or reason behind these prices? Did AXS Premium hold back tickets simply to gouge prices? #mychemicalromance AXS is shady as F. pic.twitter.com/DRkUfupyNp
