REM Tickets on Sale! (dilemma)

The REM Fans who want to see them have to wait for tickets to go on-sale before buying them from a broker though. You can save a lot of money that way. See the REM site for more information but they don't have any "on-sale" dates listed yet. http://remhq.com/index.phpThere are lots of trustworthy ticket sites out there if you miss out on the original on-sale date and you cannot get tickets for that show at face value. As season ticket holders get their tickets and start selling them to brokers, you'll start to see more sites listing REM tickets. I'll recommend a few in case you need them later.Always buy from a trusted ticket broker if you do have to buy tickets on the secondary market. Ebay won't help you if you buy fake tickets from a crappy seller and deciever at the show aren't the most friendly people. Buying from a trusted broker with an online guarantee is the best route to go.Any of the sources listed below are people I feel safe working with and stand by them with my utmost confidence. The only difference will be price and customer experience, so pick the one with the friendliest service and best price.
