TicketmasterTicket sale scam

P

There is something unethical going on at Ticketmaster and it is time that an investigation be made regarding its flagrant ticket sale scam. When tickets go on sale for "hot" concerts, the general public is unable to purchase tickets. If "general" tickets go on sale on Saturday, at 5pm, and you start calling and going on-line to purchase tickets, you are immediately told that there are no tickets available. This happens always---even for presale tickets. Ticketmaster, WHO ARE YOU SELLING THEM TO? It obvious--they show up on StubHub for outrageous prices that most fans could never afford. SHAME ON YOU TICKETMASTER-- It's time someone investigates your shady practice.

    This is clearly stated before you checkout. Get over it and read stuff before you buy!

    I went to ticketmaster and System of a Down website and I saw tickets only offered on the West Coast and a few dates in Canada. Maybe they haven't gone on sale in your area. OP states they are from VA.

    OP doesn't say which event they are trying to buy tickets for. I am in Norfolk, VA, and I haven't heard anything about any S.O.D concerts nearby in the near future. It appears that the band will be in Europe and Russia over the summer...

    Also, Alexa is not the name of a city in Virginia. I am assuming that OP is from Alexandria.

    Pay no mind to Beckie2795. She never has anything constructive to say regarding ANYONE'S complaints. She appears to go around and belittle everything that everyone complains about. It's because she's a c.u.n.t. of course. Smile Beckie. It's the only way we can tell your nasty ### from your ugly face.

    I agree... it is shameful that parents cannot afford to get tickets for concerts that their children really want to see, because it is IMPOSSIBLE to buy tickets at face value. Ticketmaster ALWAYS has none, even within seconds of them "going on sale." SCAM!!!

    agree with you 100%. and ticketmaster recently bought a company called "ticketsnow" which is a scalper/resller of tickets!
    i am so angry. i saw tickets on stubhub and processtickets.com for a concert that has NOT EVEN gone on sale yet but the scalpers have the section, row and exact seat that you will be purchasing! at anywhere from 5x to 10x the face value of the ticket!!
    no wonder when i go online to buy tickets at the second they are "released" they are already sold out! its because ticketmaster sold them all to the scalpers before the public sale date!!! they are a monopoly in the US and someone needs to step in and either force sweeping changes on how they do business or allow another company to give them some competition!!! they RIP OFF the true music fans ---if what they are doing isnt "illegal" in the eyes of the law, it sure is unethical!!

    The Formation Tour is racists and against police officers. DO NOT SEND ME ANOTHER ADVERTISEMENT for this event~!
    I will unsubscribe and never buy another ticket from your company again!
    There will be riots after every tour and even selling tickets for this event makes you a party to it.
