I too am fed up with extra ticket fees. After selecting two tickets to the Phoenix Coyotes hockey game, which were quite expensive, they added on a ticket processing fee, then $15.00 for parking. Some time ago, I thought that I would avoid this ticket processing fee. I went directly to the box office at the location of the upcoming concert. Even though there was no middle man in this transaction, I was still charged a ticket processing fee of which the box office ticket seller could give me no explanation.
