Ticket sales now are different times in different states. Nomore waiting till midnight,,if you see a event on the tour page that you may want to get tickets for pay attention to what time and date it has for the tickets going on sale.Dee, I don't know where you got your information from, but, in the latest issue of the FC newsletter (FALL) this is what is clearly stated:
BEGINNING WITH THE 2013 SHOWS,
Preferred Seating tickets will be sold for a 3 Day period prior to the Public
Onsale Date. Preferred Seating tickets will still go on sale at midnight
CST. For example, if the public onsale date is Saturday, October 27. The
Preferred Seating ticket sale will start at midnight, Wednesday October
24th and end at 11:59 p.m. Friday, October 26th.
The change is that, whereas before you can purchase tickets from the FC for 7 days from the pre-sale date, now the pre-sale goes for 2-3 days prior to the public onsale date. I think the confusion came from the fact that now some venues and Ticketmaster itself are also sometimes having their own tickets pre-sale events. Everyone has to be careful with that because those pre-sale events has or may have nothing to do with the FC's own pre-sale event.
