Ok, Who Had 2 Minutes for Arcade Fire Tickets to Sell Out?

I don't know what the exact time was but they were gone quickly and I know people can't be thrilled with the way this was handled on Tickets.com. One person has a pair of tickets up on eBay that's currently going for $799 (UPDATE: those damn things sold for $2,025...I hope that's a joke). Since 9 a.m. there have been 106 Craigslist posts and counting. How big has this band become? My guess is that it may be possible to get tickets during the night of each show since all tickets are will call only.

I had several browsers open and several other people online as well. By some dumb luck, my ticket karma continues.
