Pre-sale on Ticketmaster starts at 10 a.m.

It says that’s for CitiCard holders, but I remember this same concert in this same place last year allowed the Chase Card, which I have.

The pre-sale, for some reason, was moved to 12 noon. Great. I won’t be near a computer. Better download the app on my phone. Downloading…

My wife called. Her friend wants me to get tickets for her, too. Fine. Even if she flakes, I surely will be able to resell these at face value online.

Hopefully when noon comes they accept my Chase Card. Chase has a special VIP section at Giants Stadium that I got my daughter into last year for this concert.

Special elevator, air conditioning, a bag of chips. Glad to see my bank fees at work.

This band does this, putting the tickets on sale so that parents feel obligated to buy them for Christmas, even though the concert isn’t until August.

I mean, when I was a kid, I had to deliver newspapers in the snow for weeks to save up enough money to see Quiet Riot at a run-down theater. But times have changed.

And, I know, it’s not called Giants Stadium anymore, it’s named after another corporation now, but I’m pretty corporationed out at this point, what with Citi and Chase and Ticketmaster. To me, it’s Giants Stadium, even though I’m a Jets Fan.

And how music has fallen. I once saw David Bowie here, and now it’s One Direction?!

OK, noon is here. Going on the app. Ticketmaster, I can’t read that weird type you want me to confirm! OK, guess I guessed right. I’m in. Processing … Processing … This might take a couple of minutes. Input credit card information. What secret code on the back of the card? Processing … Do I want the tickets e-delivered? It’s free. Sure. Processing… Five tickets … $623.00. Yikes! Processing…

“Sorry. Your credit card did not work. We are giving your seats to someone else.”

Ten minutes in and they tell me now? That my Chase Card was no good; they need a CitiCard? How did CitiCard get that privilege?

Let me see if my other card works. It’s from a local bank. Inputting… Processing… Nope!

Well, I give up! I put the Ticketmaster app on push notification. It will let me know when the next pre-sale is.

Chances are, the clean-cut, fabricated media-creations known as One Direction will add a second show. We’ll be fine.

Christmas is a long way off.
