    How much does Stubhub charge for their cut? Is it a percentage?

    Have you thought about going on a Guns N Roses fan forum and asking people on that? I did that for Megadeth years ago and it worked.

    I would try to go on a message board. That's just me. I saw GnR 2 years ago. Amazing show.

    Did you buy them via ticketmaster? You can usually transfer them digitally through ticket masters site. I actually bought tickets to GNR last year, and couldn't end up going, and sold them using ticket masters resale site, just so I didn't have to deal with craiglist. I posted them for $25 more than I paid, and they all sold within 2 hours to my surprise. People don't mind paying a little over face for indemand tickets, but I can't stand most re-sellers, who charged 200-1000% more then face value. There's so many ticket bots and scalpers, that If you sell for a reasonable amount, you will sell quick.

    You can find great deals on the same day from craigslist. Otherwise its just full of professional scalpers. Facebook Market place has been taking a big bite outta craigslist recently.
