That means nothing. Ticketmaster routinely does NOT release all the tickets when they go on sale. When I checked for Rammstein tickets to the NJ show, it was "sold out". 2 days later - it wasn't - and I was in!
Plus a certain amount are allocated to radio stations, etc, and if they don't get used they get sold. I have had amazing luck buying tickets to "sold out" shows the day of a show - even a few hours before showtime. Often up front too. (I found out that's because when an act books into a venue way in advance of the show, they often don't know the exact dimensions of the stage. Once they get loaded in and set up, any unused space up front is quickly filled with seats and sold that day.
