FTC to Hold Workshop Examining Online Event Ticket Sale - Agency Seeks Input in Advance of March 2019 Workshop; Project No. P18450
I continually purchase tickets from Ticketmaster and Live Nation. With a family of 6, when I want to purchase tickets for the family, plus son and daughter in law, 8 tickets time $10 fees = an additional $80. Even buying 4 tickets, at $40 is ridiculous. If I am buying them all at one time, why a separate fee for each. There's no parking included, there's no postage, as I use "Print at home", there's no person on the other end of the phone placing the order for me, mine are all ordered online. I have an account with both Ticketmaster and Live Nation and can look up any past purchases. All average around $10...some have been closer to $15. I've stopped buying for the whole family. It's not affordable.
