Ticketbastard...

Guster Tickets: $22 x 2= $44
Ticketmaster Charge: $5 x 2= $10
Service Charge: $3
________________
Total: $57

From $44 to $57....is there something wrongs with this picture, or is it just me?

I think Bono has the clout right now to take up the fight against Ticketmaster -- the fight that Pearl Jam lost. The B-man could do some damage.

"You must not look down on someone just 'cos they are 14 years old. When I was that age I listened to the music of John Lennon and it changed my way of seeing things, so I'm just glad that 14 year olds are coming to see U2 rather than group X." - Bono, 1988

Ticketmaster can bite me.

I think Bono's got enough on his plate right now with this whole saving the world stuff, btw.

Noti and I wanna start our own ticketing service because we've been screwed out of our hard earned cash too many times. THere shouldn't be that much of a service fee. What the hell? Enough people buy tickets already that if you charged a dollar or even 50 cents, you could get a pretty good profit off of ticket sales. Ticketmaster is a piece of garbage, and they think that if they just take over everything they can charge as much as they want. Wel, guess what. Wait till I start my business, then we'll see who's crying then. HA!

Ever seen an Alice with a stem like that? Come to think of it, did you ever see an Alice??

I think they should be investigated...they have all but a monopoly on ticket distribution. Bust 'em up I say.
