BravoCon Sells out in Minutes, but There’s Still Hope for Fans

BravoCon tickets went on sale this morning at 10 am. And quickly sold out in less than an hour.

The three day highly anticipated flagship event offers exclusive access to Bravolebrities, events and interactive panels. Bravo has been hyping the convention for months and only recently announced details and ticket prices.

Fans were ready to push the purchase button for tickets that ranged from about $300 to $1500 for three-day packages. Unfortunately for some, purchasing the tickets promptly meant they were shut out. “Im upset flights and hotel booked already,” one fan shared on Twitter. “clicked on buy tickets right at 10:00 AM and got night.”

Does that mean fans are shut out?

If you want to get in on the three-day package you may be out of luck. However, Bravo announced the network will be offering one-day tickets for Saturday and Sunday only.

Prices range from $124.50 plus fees for the basic one-day ticket price to almost $700 for a one-day “SVIP Future Bravoleb” ticket. The VIP one-day ticket price will set you back about $234.50.

Upon selling out, Bravo tweeted, “There’s always more tea brewing: 3-Day #BravoCon tickets are SOLD OUT, but 1-Day tickets are coming soon for all ticket tiers!” While Bravo posted about offering tickets at the door, it may only apply to the one-day ticket. The network will announce when the one-day tickets will be available at least 48 hours before they go on sale.

Fans compare notes

Some fans gleefully announced they scored tickets and are excited to attend. “Got our @BravoTV#BravoCon tickets,” one fan posted to Twitter. “But most importantly we’re going to see @CountessLuann #countessandfriends live!!!” While a few people were thrilled they landed the coveted tickets, most people posted to Twitter they were too late.

Another fan wrote, “Want to know what is not a #mazel? #BravoCon selling out in 2 minutes… such a disappointment @BravoTV.” Another person said bots took all the tickets. “All the tix have been scooped up by bots and now they’re tweeting about it. So over this. #BravoCon.”

Even though Bravo promised one-day weekend tickets, some fans weren’t into it. “Trust that no one wants the one day tickets,” one fan bemoaned. “Especially since we can’t even get in on Friday now. #bravoCON.”

This person echoed the anger many fans were feeling. “I feel bad for whoever is managing the @BravoTV social media page. Imma rage tweet all day about not getting tix to #BravoCon.”

There’s also the price factor

Only days ago, fans were worried about BravoCon ticket prices. One person wrote on Twitter, “For $1500, I better be able to visit Joe Giudice in Italy.” Others wrote that the basic ticket was still out of reach. “@Andy, so so sad to see that you are charging $300 to go to BravoCon. I paid less than that for floor seat to the @PostMalone concert…damn shame.”

Putting the event into perspective, it costs about $300 for VIP access to RuPaul’s DragCon in New York this September. Tickets for Disney World is one of the more expensive tickets around too. Admission to one park for a single day is about $109. What about seeing a Broadway show? You can score a great orchestra seat for an evening performance of Hamilton in New York for about $550.
