Three of my friends and I wanted to go to a concert in March of 2019. Several of the artists are favorites. The least expensive seats were $31 per seat.
Ticketmaster wants a $30 surcharge, plus two other surcharges, for a total of $36 in surcharges.
For some strange reason, the four of us are not going to the concert.
But we customers don’t really have the power here; it’s the artists who need to boycott the locations that have onerous contracts with Ticketmaster.
