So I didn't see this posted in broader forum so will try here since it's (date-wise) one of maybe 4 shows that works.

What is the deal with re-sale? Ticketmaster says tix aren't transferable but that there is a "face value resale." But I can't find that. Is that a real thing? And how are they making tix "non transferable" anyway? Are they matching a ticket buyer to their ID?

Sorry if dumb questions. But eager to see Bob & the gang for the first time since mid-90s

Any info appreciated.

QuoteWith the gift of a career-spanning 29-song, two-hour-and-45-minute set, the band's show was about generosity, even while Smith sang about alienation and deep sadness.

Now 64, Smith still sports black eyeliner, smeared red lipstick, and a scraggly shock of bedhead. Saturday night, he wore a baggy black jacket over a black David Bowie T-shirt, with "Bowie" in sequins. His voice was strong, clear, and strained as it ever was.

QuoteA 15-song first set heavy on deep tracks was bookended by two brand new ones, "Alone" and "Endsong," before a brief intermission that merely marked a halfway point. For nearly three solid hours, Smith and co. offered up their perfect dream, weaving the emo-drama and poetry of old favorites like "Pictures Of You" and "Lullaby" with far more rarely played gems like "Six Different Ways," before descending into a famed jukebox-encore of "Friday I'm In Love," "Just Like Heaven," and "Boys Don't Cry."

And by the way, the latter was referenced brilliantly by graphic artist Matthew Jacobson for a Philly-date tour poster stylized as a Rocky film promo featuring Robert Smith replacing Stallone at the top of the Art Museum steps, overlooking the Parkway – all washed in hues of Flyers' orange.
