True, there will always be scalpers getting a piece of the action, but you never seem to hear about Vertigo tour caliber ticket fiascos with either of those artists. Perhaps if U2 adopted a system similar to either of those artists, that never would have happened.

Well that was a fiasco, I agree...

So, I'm confused now...

Your original post made it seem as if Live Nation was going to have a general auction site for tickets. Now this article states U2 will run their own. It doesn't seem like we have the whole story.

Well, the first part is already true. Live Nation already has its own general auction site. At least in the Netherlands and some other countries. the next step they will do is to connect all LiveNation websites to make it easier for people form country A to buy tickets for a concert in country B (but this will enlarge the ticket problem I think...)

And you are right this article states Uw will run their own. And yes. probably we have not the complete truth yet. But u2 running it's auction site on it's own probably means LiveNation will do it. Since they will be doing their promotion, ticket sale, tour and merchandise...

It might turn out to be a good idea - it depends on how it's implemented. On other auctions I've seen, 10th row was available for only $25 or so more than the highest face value. With scalpers alone, that amount would have been several times the face value. And if U2 go with auctions, they aren't going to auction every seat/ga - probably only a small percentage. At least there would be more options to obtaining tickets for a sold out show, and probably at a lower price.
