Springsteen Blasts Ticketmaster Scam

(Billboard) Bruce Springsteen and his manager, Jon Landau, criticized Ticketmaster for redirecting customers attempting to buy Springsteen concert tickets to the company's secondary ticketing site, TicketsNow. [secondary ticket market = legalized scalping]

On Monday, fans trying to make face-value purchases for tickets were instead sent to TicketsNow, "even when other seats remained available at face value," says a letter Posted on BruceSpringsteen.net. "We condemn this practice."

"We perceive this as a pure conflict of interest," the post continues. "Ticketmaster is there to ensure that we have a good, fair sale of our tickets at their face value plus normal ticketing charges. TicketsNow is supposed to be a secondary site where people who already have tickets may exchange, trade, and, unfortunately, speculate with them. We have asked this redirection from Ticketmaster to TicketsNow cease and desist immediately and Ticketmaster has agreed to do so in the future and has removed its unwanted material from their and our site." more from this report

[He should have been condemning their rape (a.k.a. service) fees all along as well. And it would be interesting to know how many tickets Ticketmaster sets aside for TicketsNow, or any funny business like that is going on. - You gotta read the head Ticketbastard's response. ]
