This is a perfect example of a company being blatantly greedy because it knows that the fans have no other recourse. Ticketmaster knows that our only option is to go to resellers. The weird thing is that the company has made buying tickets such a convoluted hassle that going through the resale market is almost preferable to using traditional methods. If I have to pay an arm and a leg to see a concert, I might as well choose the option that doesn’t induce stress migraines.

This corporation essentially controls our live entertainment and honestly, there’s nothing we can really do about it. Unfortunately, I don’t have some magic solution to this problem. Until fans and artists decide to revolt against Ticketmaster’s choke hold on the music world, or until a bigger company comes along and acquires Live Nation, this is an aspect of our entertainment lives that we just have to deal with.
