Ebays StubHub!

Greetings, just wanted to see if anyone had experience with StubHub! There are a set of tickets on that I'd like to buy for a show mid Feb and just wanted to know if I should snag them or if as the dates get closer the prices would go up/down and risk 'em?

You know, ticket prices will fluctuate, so that's always a crapshoot, but as far as the service, they're great. I used StubHub for The Police and was very impressed. I was pretty nervous about my tickets since they were printed out and could have been easily copied, but they worked fine. Honestly, with the crappy seats I've been getting from Ticketmaster lately, this may be my preferred route for concert tickets from now on.

Yeah, one thing to note is that is that in the last days before the show, sellers no longer can sell tickets, unless they relinquish them to SH, which is not something that is common.

Stubhub always seems overpriced 2-3 weeks out. I have better luck a week before or check craigslist in your area. I recently bought sold out Broaway tickets for a show that just opened for face on craigslist that had a 30-40% premium on Stubhub.
