1. ticketmaster sucks
years ago...like twenty

OH, the Chicago concert was canceled, so I guess I get a refund. Yes, a refund LESS $120 in fees ~ Why do I have to pay those fees, when I paid for the tickets there was a concert scheduled, now there isn't one?

I vowed never again to buy tickets through ticketmaster, and I have missed a couple of concerts, but it is worth it. Those bastards!

3. I'm on their email list , and sent em a nasty reply to their last one...
telling em among other choice bits of opinion, their entire operation is "legalized theft". I'm pretty damn sure no human being will ever read that message though.

5. I can't get over how they can charge $7.50 on a $20 ticket.
Even was gas was so high, it was still cheaper to drive downtown to get the tix.

6. I sure do now, Swede
I bought tickets for the 'Axis of Justice'
concert coming to LA in three weeks.

http://axisofjustice.org/return-of-the-justice-tour /

The tickets were $15.00 per person,REALLY reasonable,
but by the time Ticketmaster added on all the fees and
the $2.50 charge to PRINT my own tickets at home the
total for two tickets came to nearly $50.00

Highway robbery!

Still, I'm really excited to see Tom Morello and Slash
at the same concert. And the money is going to a
good cause. It should be good.

:D :woohoo:

57 and still rocking!
