Is anyone else shocked at Ticketmaster fees? You think you're buying $280 tickets? Oh no -- it's actually more like $320 because Ticketmaster tacks on $38 in fees PER TICKET! That is insane. In other words, the fees per ticket are greater than the price of GA tickets. That's insane.

 

I get that the Rose Bowl and Ticketmaster need to make their cut on the ticket sales. But I wish they'd just fold those costs into the ticket price so that we know the actual price of the ticket upfront, rather than constantly leaving the ticket-purchasing process with a bad taste in our mouths.

Yes, let's talk about those "service" fees for paperless tickets (after we all solve the problem of Ticketmaster glitches and scalpers, of course). Here in Austin, Texas, the local theater CHARGES YOU $2.00 per ticket if you want to PRINT OUT YOUR OWN TICKET ON YOUR OWN PRINTER. But, there is no fee if you choose to scan your barcode at entry on your mobile device. Go figure.
