My name is Leah and my mom thinks I'm awesome.
I like a lot of things, but mostly just Michelle and my cats.
The current situation with resellers is just so unacceptable it’s hard to believe it’s still going on.
How is it possible that scalpers on stubhub can still get away with purchasing literally HUNDREDS of tickets to each of these FOB shows and putting them up for sale at enormous markups 30 minutes after they went on sale?
I saw a post a few minutes ago saying that there were nearly 400 tickets to the Pittsburgh show already on stubhub. There are currently floor tickets to some of the shows going for over $1000. The sale only started 45 minutes ago.
It’s bad enough that LiveNation charges $12 per ticket in “convenience fees”. It’s bad enough that their website crashes literally the instant tickets go on sale. It’s unacceptable that honest people cannot purchase tickets through this legitimate avenue because the vendors are so incompetent that they cannot prevent these assholes from doing this.
LiveNation needs to do something about this. Ticketmaster needs to do something about this. The artists need to refuse to use these vendors until they do.
