Ticket Master has too much power. A monopoly, really. While ensuring "fans" do indeed have early access to tickets, when the masses all vie for concert tix at the same time for the same date, the prices surge due to elaborate algorithms. In other words, general floor admission tickets for Billie Eilish should be $150.00, but instead are surge-priced to $450.00 and assigned "Charity Platinum Tickets". This means that you are supposedly donating $300.00 to charity on TIcketmaster's behalf. This is absolute bull. I'm not a HUGE Billie fan, but I do miss seeing live music. I guess I've come to the realization that if you want to see a big artist, you will pay big bucks and that's just the way it will be. Unless... do you think we could start a movement? I don't see it getting any better in the future, my future. I hate capitalism. Try not to abuse your power, Ticket Master.
I'm going to Britney's Birmingham concert on 31st August. Despite having a ticket I've still been checking Ticketmaster's live seating plan for this show regularly for months, just to see how well (or not) the tickets are selling for this show. They have been selling very slowly. Up until yesterday there were still over 1,000 tickets for sale on Ticketmaster under the standard prices section, (not the VIP or Hot Tickets packages, etc - no idea how many of those are still available as can't see that on the site). I was surprised that after all these months so many tickets (at all the different regular price levels) were still unsold. I checked again tonight and suddenly, since last night there's nothing - all the tickets have suddenly been removed and there's just a message saying "These tickets went fast and we are unable to find more right now"!! That is such a lie! They didn't go fast at all, they've been for sale for MONTHS! Like I said, until just yesterday they still had over 1,000 for sale! Why do they lie like this? All they now have, when I look on the site, is a link to their sister re-sale site Get Me In, where there are lots of tickets for sale. Do you think Ticketmaster suddenly decided to remove all the unsold tickets on their main site for Birmingham and moved them all to Get Me In to try and sell more, to make it look like that's the only way you can buy them? There are also tons of tickets for sale on Twickets, many for LESS than face value for all her remaining UK dates! I'm disappointed that her tour isn't selling as well as I thought it would! Maybe across mainland Europe it is but it's clearly not in the UK! I mean, it's not like all the venues are only half sold out or anything, but there are certainly lots of tickets that haven't sold and people trying to resell their own tickets are clearly struggling if they're now selling them at less than face value! Again I'm just wondering what Ticketmaster have suddenly done with all the unsold Birmingham tickets. I hope Britney won't be playing to a venue with so many empty seats! That would be awful for her to see and not nice for the atmosphere. I hope everyone who is attending makes a lot of noise and dances a lot to make up for the empty seats!! Anyway, for anyone who doesn't have a ticket to see her yet and wants to get one cheap (or wants to go to any extra shows) check out Twickets: https://www.twickets.live/tour/britney-spears-piece-of-me-tour-tickets/956477530431299584?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=Newsletter&utm_campaign=2018-08-16-General&utm_content=Britney Spears Ticket Link
