DZ,

There are a lot of posts in this forum about TicketMaster, and many of them are complaints. There is a reason for this. TM is a greedy monopoly that doesn't give a @#$! about anything except their profits. They will continue to pooch us (the devoted fans) with excessive service charges and 'convenience' fees, but deliver very little in return. I am not sure what the Band gets for their service, hopefully it doesn't hurt like it hurts us.

I am disappointed you have chosen to use them for your '09 fall tour. Maybe next time if you STOP using TicketMaster. :evil:

I have to say TM has screwed me a number of times. The last time, a few months ago, they double sold my seats. Luckily I arrived first but still ended up sharing the space with the other couple. Growing up in the Bay Area we always had BASS which was great and never had any problems, they were bought by TM. After Bill Graham died everything went to shit.

I'd do anything to smash their fucking goddamn independent heads down their scummy fucking throats right now! Shit on the cocksucking bastard motherfucker shitbucket asshole sucking cunts! My $146.00 wasn't of any value to the piss-sucking shitbags? A few seconds over the 12 minute limit at their "LiveNation" site and, "Sorry! Your time has run out. The tickets you've selected have been returned to general inventory Why did this happen? Once you have carted your tickets you have 12 minutes to complete your transaction. If that time lapses, we return those tickets so other fans can have a chance to buy them. We do this in the interest of fair access -- so every fan has a chance to buy tickets to their favorite shows. Thanks for understanding. And please try again!"

Fuck them in the worst way!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :evil: :evil: :evil:

--Bat :evil: :evil: :evil:

Yeah, Ticketmaster sucks.

But things with the word "Master" in them usually do...

Aside from the fees, I actually have to say I like them. I've scored some great, hard to get tix from them.

Now LiveNation, that's the suck.
