Do I actually need to write more? What is the purpose of Ticketmaster besides an unneeded and unwanted middle man who is forced upon us and as a result charges egregious fees?
I can reflect (fondly, may I add) to a time when Ticketmaster was the most efficient way to score great concert tickets, and for that efficiency I was willing to pay Ticketmaster their fee.
But now? Now?
Now it’s LAUGHABLE to think I need to give Ticketmaster eight bucks to buy a $25 concert ticket when the promoter could just as easily sell to me direct (no hyperbole, that is exactly what I was charged to see Grouplove in Columbus.)
