It may seem like just a few dollars here and there, but venue fees and ticket fees add up over time, and can dramatically increase ticket prices. Corporations are making billions of dollars each and every year, charging fees on top of their disclosed prices, hiding them in small print or until the very last minute before purchase and theyre betting we wont care enough to hold them accountable. I have been hit by hidden or excessively high fees, or had other problems buying tickets. I respectfully ask that you change these deceptive corporate practices.
