    Ticket Master - what a racket

    Just thought this might be of interest. This is so obnoxious.

    Not surprised at all. Can't expect much more when they have a monopoly.

    Nothing TM does would surprise me. When you buy three $45 tickets online, and your final bill is well north of $200, you know it's a racket.

    I laughed at this, but it's absolutely true, except that fee would be much more than $5 in reality. (Language warning in link): Ticketmaster Adds ‘$5.15’ **** You Fee

    I've always referred to them as Ticket Bastard. $20+ per ticket per show is a total rip off.

    I 'll wait and try to buy them from someone online or something like that.
