I am mad I didn't get a beastie boy ticket in 1998, after being in line for over 24 hrs. Now, I couldn't get a green day ticket in DC. But I go on stub hub and have option to buy a ticket for 2300.. $ not fair and completely disgusted.

Scalping should be illegal and stopped because it only profits people who have the time and money to buy all the tickets before others have a chance. Nobody who is a part the the production of the show benefits.

I'm sick and tired of not being able to get tickets for my favorite bands because the scalpers and brokers have all got them the minute online sales start. Either stop the bots or force Ticketmaster and every other agent to adopt a ticketless system where you have to show up at the venue on the night of the show with your CC and ID to claim your tickets.

It's killing baseball attendance. I tried to buy Cleveland Indians playoff tickets only to find sold out however ticket resellers had plenty of seats available at more than 6 times original value. Notice attendance way down and stadium less than half full duringlayoff run. It's killing the game in my humble opinion. Owner are losing beer, food and merchandise sales as well.

Tickets shouldn't be sold out when I try to purchase them the minute the first presale starts.

its crazy how fast tickets sell out now. Mostly from ticketmaster and Live Nation. Ticketfly doesn't seem to be too effective. My theory is Live nation and Stub hub are working together and reselling live nation tickets for a profit. Something has to be done. An example is Anderson Paak playing Fillmore in SF on 10/22/16. Tickets sold out immediately. Like less than a minute. yet there was a 2 ticket limit per person. Obviously this did not work. Tickets were immediately available on stubhub afterwards. See the connection.

Scalpers are the lowest of the low. They're thieves enabled by software. It's humiliating for the performers to know what the audience has been put through to get there. It's a disgrace and it needs to end!
