Pre-order album, get Ticketmaster Code?

This is for the new Smashing Pumpkins CD:

The Smashing Pumpkins
Get The Smashing Pumpkins brand new album and early access to concert tickets.

Pre-order The Smashing Pumpkins new album Zeitgeist from iTunes and you’ll receive a unique password to purchase concert tickets to see them live on Ticketmaster.com before the general public!
[snip]
Specific venues and show dates eligible for this promotion will be announced in the coming weeks.




What do you guys think? I will be buying the CD in store anyway (potentially multiple copies, as there are supposed to be 3 retailer exclusive versions with exclusive b-sides, a deluxe edition with booklet, and a vinyl version). Don't they occasionally give these ticketmaster codes out with physical copies of the CD? Seems like I have seen that in Best Buy flyers before.

I know that TM pre-sales are typically a scam, but I don't want to miss out. I also think it's lame that they are offering this with no tour itinerary.


This is obviously a scam to rip off loyal fans. What do you guys think?

Seems like a cool thing to do to me. If you don't want to preord, I would just register on their official site, you'll prob get the code that way too I imagine.

I'll preorder just to be sure I get it, although I do think it's lame you don't know where they're touring yet.

I've never seen best buy do a cd edition with a ticketmaster pre-order code... but I've seen it a LOT with Target... (janet jackson for a tour that never happened, the killers, norah jones, etc)

Just for the record, I got better tickets to Muse at the general sale than either presale.
