Question of the Day

How can Ticketmaster charge 25 percent, or more in fees, be the only way to get tickets for a show, and not be a monopoly? Am I wrong? Is there competition that I don't know about? Maybe I don't understand the law properly, but I though monopolies were supposed to be broken up since there is no competition and people get hosed on prices. And how come the charge an extra fee to print them online? Doesn't that save them money? And don't get me started on ticket brokers!

Sorry, I just get irritated when I see there is a decent priced concert, then the total price is so much more.

(end rant)

Ticketmaster sucks! They have all these stupid fees! I too don't get the charge for printing up your own tickets?!

Maybe, if combine our powers, we can bring them down...we may need more than two people.

Ticketmaster is all-powerful. You're never getting good tickets again after this post.

Vanilla: Yeah, I know. I never get good seats anyway. I'll have other people get them for me.
