Concert ticket rip off

Last Friday, Live Nation teamed with Ticketmaster to put a bunch of shows at several of its venues (obviously the slow selling ones) on sale for $13 for one day only. Just as I expected, all the facility fees and surcharges doubled the total price on most of them. What a rip off. If prices were lowered across the board, maybe more of them would sell out.

Let's hope the companies' proposed merger falls through!

I agree. Many artists, as well as these concert promoters can't see how many people are struggling right now. Good call!
