Too Late for Ticketmaster Voucher Redemption?

I go to A LOT of concerts so I knew that there was a class action suit against Ticketmaster and that I was probably going to get some kind of credit for tickets.  Since the lineup for Made in America was just announced and I planned to buy tickets, I was hoping that I could use the “credit” toward those tickets but after reading an article in yesterday, it looks like you can only use the voucher(s) for eligible shows.

I signed into my account to see if I indeed had a voucher(s) and it looks like I do but there’s a message saying that all eligible ticket vouchers have been redeemed and the first wave of eligible events has been closed.  WTH.  I have lots of promo codes that don’t expire until 2020 so I hope to get to use them all.  I guess I’ll need to keep my eyes open to make sure I don’t miss the next wave of eligible tickets. Keep your eyes open too if you have vouchers.
