TicketMaster

TicketMaster has long been the bane of complaints — ridiculous service charges, a silly policy enforced through legal threats in the late 90s of prohibiting links to areas of its site are but two of the things that have made them resented throughtout North America.

I bought tickets tonight for Neko Case at the Commodore Ballroom and nothing’s changed.

It’s still going to be a great show, but a $3.50 venue fee and $2.50 delivery fee for tickets by email (at no cost, of course) is money that isn’t going into an artist’s pocket.

$7.05 for a convenience charge is just ridiculous.

All told, my CDN$23 ticket comes close to CDN$40 with those additional seventeen dollars going into Ticketmaster’s pocket. That just seems exorbitant considering that they’re not even printing my ticket anymore.
