THIS GUY'S A RIP OFF. THE SLEAZIEST IN THE CITY.
I bougfht my tickets from Bostonian Tickets...going to take my girl friend to a concert. They assurred me three times I could pick up the tickets near the venue (Orpheum Theatre downtown) any time during the day up to 8pm the day of the show. They told me to call Higs Tickets. When I called Higs Tickets they said too bad we only have one pick up spot a Dunkin donuts in North Station. I explained what the Bostomian folks assured me that they had a pick up spot near the Orpheum and they could have cared less.
Next, I get a call from the owner or manager of Higs Tickets on Saturday saying he is waiting on JUST me and wants me to drive (deep western Burbs) into the dunkin Donuts North Station and pick up my tickets ASAP...I explain to him that the Bostonian people said I could come in anytime...and he said that is the case but today is not not the case and he is waiting on me...I said you cant expect me to drop every thing because you only have one person to do business with...He gets testy and starts to give me a bad attitute. He ends by saying he will be there.
I think about it and arrange to leave an hour early to help the man out...I call him and say I can make it by 5 30...he starts in with the attitude and then I say look I called you back to try and be nice and help you out. He then says OK I will be there. Make a long story short I get in there ...NO SHOW...call the guy no answer voice mail full...call emergenct number...no answer voice mail full...OK then call Bostonian Tickets....no answer when get through voice mail box full...we make the trek in to Boston to catch a show...the guy stiffs us Bostonian stiffs us. Long Story shorter...so get stood up and we payed 194.14 for two tickest valued at 90.00 face value...never got them...but got used and abused buy some cheap hucksters Bostonian Tickets and Higs Tickets...sleaze bag oranizations.
The attitude of the guy from Higs Ticket is just a ego centric flim flam man...who doesnt understand anything about putting the customer first...it was all about him and his day and he didnt want to waste a day waiting to give me tickets I bought....DO NOT DO ANY BUSINESS WITH BOSTONIAN OR HIGS USE TICKET MASTER whcih is what I should have done...live and learn.
Best Deals in town---EVEN CHEAPER THAN THE BOX OFFICE!! – Best bang for your buck....the only broker who does not charge handling fees or even some brokers charge pickup fees......they offer military deals and are nice down to earth guys. They even sold tickets for below what the TD Garden charges for worse seats----BEST TICKET BROKER IN TOWN!
Scam – Do not buy tickets from these guys. They are nothing more than scalpers with a store front. Went there to inquire about some red sox tickets and when they told me the price I seemed confused because they were WAY over face value. They were just rude about the whole thing. Your best bet is going to be buying from the scalpers on the street, they'll mark it up but not as much because they dont have to cover rent. If you wait till the second inning scalpers need to get rid of the tickets so they sell them cheaper. Dont even bother with this place. SCAMMERS
