The fees for tickets are absurd. Some times they almost equal the cost of the tickets. Often the ticket services are the only way you can get tickets so if you don't pay the fees you can't get tickets. The handling charges are particularly crazy in this day and age when one person in the far reaches of the earth can handle all the requests with a computer and you have to print them yourself. I just purchased tickets for Trans-Siberian Orchestra at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY and the added charges were almost $40.
