Here’s something that has always bothered me about ticket prices: why can’t the ticket prices include all of the surcharges? I would have been fine with them telling me the price is $22 with no service charge. Once you tell me the price of the ticket is $15, I expect to pay $15. Of course since Ticketmaster has concert goers over a barrel, they don’t care. According to artists want to be able to advertise inexpensive tickets, even if the ticket price doesn’t cover the cost of doing business.
So Ticketmaster won’t be getting my money this week. A small victory since they get my money 90% of the time. Must be nice to do business without caring what your customers think – although I can’t imagine why you’d want to.
