Craigslist vs Mumford and Sons

a few of my favorites (and is it just me or do they all sound like backpack kids who got everything they ever wanted from both sets of parents?):

one more courtesy of michelle (poster sounds a little angry cos he's not going):

They are good but not that good. Get your heads out of your asses. Don't support these scum scalpers, they are not true music fans.

clearly, this person deserves to go for free because he works with autistic kids.

I'm looking to buy a pair of Mumford and Sons tickets to EITHER the MINNEAPOLIS show or the MILWAUKEE show!!! I see a lot of folks still trying to sell their tix for top dollar and trust me if I had that kind of money to throw around I would pay it to see this show. Unfortunately I get paid crumbs to work with Autistic kids and like everyone else on here I can't justify skipping a few bill payments this month just to see a concert :( Let me know what you got and how much you're looking for!

ah, the student budget excuse. and willing to negotiate. hmmmm.

I am a diehard fan that missed out on purchasing tickets by a minute when they were initially released online!

Please, please help me out! I'm working with a student budget, and am willing to negotiate! Going to this concert would mean the world to me!

haha. i don't think this poster is getting tickets, but at least they are taking the system down with them.

Anyone realizing they may not get the hundreds of dollars they are asking for their Mumford and Sons tickets? It's getting close to 10/29/10...contact me if your conscience kicks in or you realize that you're not going to make a fortune by ripping off dedicated Mumford fans, which ever comes first. I know at least one of those will happen by Friday.

also, after you sell me your tickets for low prices, i'm gonna turn around and flip them. just sayin'

I would really LOVE to have 2 tickets for the 10/29 show, but I can only pay $50/ticket. If you can't use your tickets I'd be happy to buy them from you.

i wonder if any of these posters have read ATLAS SHRUGGED (although it's kinda sad when $60 seems like a low ball offer).


Like Mumford and Sons a lot, but didn't get tickets to the First Ave. or Varsity shows. Unfortunately, I'm kind of a poor fan too, and can only really afford $60/ticket. Hopefully you have two to sell to me.

It would totally make my day!


ummmm. this is the mumford and sons ticket bucket, dude, not atmosphere. put down the pipe.

2 hard copy tickets available to see Ant & Slug flow at First Avenue on 11/27. I can meet you in Uptown. These are hard copy tickets NOT E-tickets. They are $65 each and you can have them in your hands within 30 minutes of contacting me!

Thanks & Cheers!

hmmm. i'd post an ad like this too just to tweak all the buyers & sellers. can we confirm this sell actually happened?

The 2 tickets went fast as expected for $30/ticket. Sorry I can't reply back to everyone that is wondering if the tickets are still available. If I had 50 more I'd sell them for cost. Hopefully someone else will sell there's for a respectful price. Good luck and hope everyone can find tickets. Cheers!

and here's the ad for the above response. scumbag. hmmm. seems there's an axe and grinding. even less convinced this sale happened.

I have 2 extra tickets for a TRUE fan to enjoy, not a scum bag trying to sell for over 10 times as much, come on people, get real. Selling for $30 a ticket. Hard copies.

wow. i hope this guy finds a buyer.

Will pay $500 for 4 tickets to the October 29th show at first ave.
Text Corey 612-532-8595

dude, she's gonna dump you after the show. save your money. (she may be super awesome, but as a guy, i can tell, you aren't) however, decent price offer.

Ok, so here is my predicament, which as a guy, I realize sounds quite cheese-tastic. I have been dating a girl for not that long and her birthday is coming up and I wanted to do something special for her. She and I are both HUGE Mumford and Sons fans and it would be awesome if I could find a couple tickets for us to go to the show at First Ave. She is super awesome and I think it would really win her over if I could pull this off somehow. I can't pay the $200 a piece the scalpers want, but could pay $125 total for 2 tickets (ie 125 %2 = $62.5 apiece). So if you have 2 extra tickets and would like to help a music nerd guy win over his music nerd dream girl, please drop me a line. I will pay cash and meet where ever to pick them up.

Thanks in advance.


  1. ha! i hadn't even read this post before i sent that one today, i just knew you'd enjoy it!
    maybe these people just need to do what we did when we didn't get tix to the Varsity show: wait until they come to town again, and get tickets to that show (and make friends with someone who is really good at getting tix for shows that sell out in 10 mins or less). by the time Mumford puts out their next album, they'll be playing the Target Center or something.

  2. haha. no doubt. owe Rhi big time for this one. i love reading craiglist. i should write up a book proposal. @#$% craiglist posters say. best sellah for sure.
