Ticketmaster, Still

13 Nov 2007

Isaac and I are going to see They Might Be Giants at the Michigan Theater tomorrow night.

Our tickets cost $25 each. So, $50. But then Ticketmaster charged us an additional $38.57 in convenience fees combined with their lowest-price delivery service.

It has been a long time since I bought tickets like this. I had thought the days of Ticketmaster’s monopoly price abuse long gone. Why I am I still paying 175% of the face price to buy a pair of tickets? I think this is the last time I’ll be going to a venue that sells tickets through Ticketmaster.
