fees charged by venues and corporations on top of ticket prices are deceptive and must end. You have the authority to do something about it, and you were established for the protection of consumers. Please ban or strictly regulate arduous fees that should not exist on event tickets. Sure, ticket prices may increase as a result, but that will mean we know the full price of an event before we purchase. The only way a market can truly be competitive is if the advertised price is the actual sale price (minus the usual retail sales tax we're already accustomed to paying).
