I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I really don’t like Ticketmaster. One one hand, I really do appreciate the convenience of being able to sit in my bed and order tickets to the show I want to see, but they have quite the racket.
Thanks to some good music by David on their boat this weekend, I was mentioned that I’d really like to see the Foo Fighters in concert again. And thanks to Ticketmaster I could search and buy tickets to a show in late July playing in Rochester NY.
While I expected an additional charge for buying my tickets online, I didn’t expect them to be at such an exorbitant rate. Does it really cost an additional $10 per ticket because I clicked a button?!? AND the order processing charge isn’t even built in to the “convenience” charge? What am I paying for? If I ever get the time, I think I’ll call to ask for an explanation to the additional charges to see if I get them to admit they are just exploiting me for profit.
As a consolation prize, because I purchased two tickets online through ticketmaster, I get two $0.99 song credits at the iTunes store to either use, or pass on to a friend. Thanks but I think I’ll explore better alternatives for buying tickets in the future.
