    shame some fans had to settle for limited golden circle tickets thinking it was sold out. Getting my golden circle ticket tomorrow!

    I think for every "true fan" who happened to check the website, there are 50 "fans" of RHCP who couldn't name more than 5 of their songs that heard about the presale on the radio/social media sites and got better tickets than a lot of the diehard fans who queued up early this morning to try get good tickets. So much for the theories of "true fans" then...

    Are you a true fan if you follow them religiously or if you love and are passionate about their music? Always try to be positive, but I do feel bummed about the pre-sale tickets. Rocking back and forth giving all my good energy to the universe, hoping that i will receive golden circle tickets.
