    Ticketmaster running a special for the Hilton Magic All-Star Game...

    Buy 2 tickets...pay for 3!

    Should be $40 for two tickets. Instead, after the fees, fees and more fees - it's $58. They even charge you to print the tickets online - standard shipping is free.

    I just don't get it...

    Iowa State Center box office - they doing the same? I just can't stand to give my money to Ticketmaster.

    It is a racket, I would love to see venues start dropping ticketmaster. There is no way they can justify 20% in fees, the only reason people pay it is because of the monopoly position.

    One thing I love about the new Wells is they use their own "Dahls Ticketing" that usually doesn't add ridiculous fees, although they do sometimes have minimal service fees. Ticketmaster is just incredibly lucky they haven't seen some sort of back-lash over the years.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.
