    In the wake of the Taylor Swift ticket sales disaster that left scores of fans empty-handed or price-gouged, the Senate Judiciary Committee began questioning a series of witnesses on Tuesday to determine whether Live Nation, Ticketmaster’s parent company, wields a monopoly over the concert-going industry and should be dismantled. “Let’s take the Taylor Swift fiasco as an example,” Jerry Mickelson, an independent concert promoter and the co-founder of Jam Productions, said at the hearing when asked why it’s so difficult for the average consumer to buy concert tickets. “The fans had to sign up through a Verified Fan [service] to even buy a ticket,” Mickelson said. “Ticketmaster knew the demand was enormous, larger than most any other show. When they set the tickets up for sale, there’s two ways you can do that. Set the tickets up so that they are best available, which means that you’ll sell more tickets because the fans don’t have a choice, or pick-a-seat, where it slows the process down. “The process, when it’s slowed down, increases the money that Ticketmaster makes because...

But it ended up with nothing but Bad Blood, according to police.

    A MAN has been left furious after he was trapped in a car park after a concert even though he had a valid ticket.

When the pair returned to the parking at 11 pm, they joined the long queue of cars waiting but after reaching the machine their ticket wouldn't scan properly. Mr Jackson said: "We were expecting that, because we paid in advance, it would mean we wouldn't have to queue with everyone else - so that was a bit annoying.

    NEW YORK (AP) — In its second weekend of release, Warner Bros.’ “The Batman” easily remained the No. 1 movie in North American theaters with $66 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday, while a live BTS concert broadcast was one-day-only blockbuster. Matt Reeves’ Caped Crusader reboot starring Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz held well in its second week, dropping a modest 51% — a good rate for a comic book movie — from its $134 million debut and bringing its domestic total to $238.5 million. It’s done nearly identical business overseas, leading to $463.2 million globally thus far. “The Batman,” Warner Bros.’ first exclusively theatrical release in more than a year after experimenting with simultaneous streaming releases through 2021, is expected to have much of March to itself at theaters. No new wide releases opened over the weekend and “The Batman” should remain atop the box office for at least another week. Partly because theaters were so dependent on “The Batman” this month, AMC Entertainment and some other chains introduced ticket prices that were $1...

    Drivers headed through downtown San Jose to Highway 87 may have noticed something alarming recently: Andy’s Pet Shop on Notre Dame Avenue is locked up and emptied out. Fear not, though, as the beloved institution, which first opened on The Alameda in 1950, has simply changed locations again after about a decade downtown. Known for its iconic neon sign featuring a red-yellow-and-blue macaw, Andy’s has left its roost at 51 Notre Dame Ave.– slated to become a mixed-use tower project called the Carlysle — and landed at 429 South Bascom Ave., near West San Carlos Street. Lissa Shoun and her husband, Eric Bong, took over Andy’s in 2007 and moved it from its original home on The Alameda in 2010 after a disastrous financial year during the Great Recession. Fans followed the shop for pet supplies and treats, and in recent years it also had become a reliable pet rescue adoption center. The small storefront on Bascom Avenue — between a medical supply company and Tip Top Liquors — is considered a short-term home while funds are raised for a...
    An audience attending a concert. Fin Costello/Getty Images A Florida concert promoter is offering fully-vaccinated people $18 discounted tickets. Unvaccinated people, however, are being charged a flat rate of $999.99 for the same tickets.  Those seeking discounted tickets must bring their physical COVID-19 vaccination card to the venue.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. A concert promoter in Florida is trying to incentivize people to get vaccinated against the coronavirus by offering lower ticket prices to individuals that have gotten their shots. Those that can prove they have been fully vaccinated can pay $18 per ticket to attend the Teenage Bottlerocket, MakeWar, and Rutterkin concert at Saint Petersburg's VFW Post 39 on June 26. However, those that haven't gotten two shots of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or a single shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be charged $999.99 per ticket. "I also wanted it to be a vaccine drive to get the fence-sitters off the fence," Paul Williams of Leadfoot Promotions,  who came up with the idea for the discount, told ABC News. He...

Five members of Congress, including New York Rep. Jerry Nadler and New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. sent a letter Monday to US Attorney General Merrick Garland and Rebecca Slaughter, the acting chair of the Federal Trade Commission, urging the administration to probe the companies. The bet, according to Beltway insiders, is that the Biden administration will take a tougher stance on antitrust concerns than the Obama administration did when it approved the tie-up. “The evidence is overwhelming that the 2010 merger between the world’s largest concert promoter, Live Nation, and the biggest ticket provider, Ticketmaster, has strangled competition in live...

    Fans at MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, Florida on Sept. 23, 2019.Marlo Miller There's no doubt that the recent news of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine has people flipping their lids with excitement with the hope that maybe the new normal may soon return to the old normal. But no one seems as excited as Ticketmaster, the same goons who put ticket-holders through the wringer this year when they quietly amended their refund policy to no longer offer full refunds for postponed or rescheduled events, only refunding those that had been formally canceled due to the pandemic. Though they reversed that bullshit amendment somewhat, now the event ticketing giant has unveiled a plan to screen people's COVID-19 status before being approved to purchase tickets to events. Ticketmaster's proposed verification system, which is still in the developmental phase and poses many logistical “what ifs,” is detailed in an exclusive published by Billboard. It would require a whole lot of technology, some of which has yet to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. First, a fan would purchase a ticket via the Ticketmaster digital ticket smartphone app. (This would help...

    As independent music venues struggle to keep their heads above water during COVID-19 closures, two staples of Boulder’s live music scene have found support from a local cannabis company that loves to jam. Z2 Entertainment, the managing company for Boulder's Fox and Boulder theaters, has laid off close to 100 employees since the pandemic began, according to CEO Cheryl Liguori. After closing doors at both venues on March 13, Z2 continued to pay fixed overhead expenses without ticket sale income, operating at a significant loss. The Boulder Theater is now open on the weekends at 10 percent of normal capacity, while the Fox remains closed, with the earliest concert scheduled for February 2021. “It was a painful experience for everyone,” Liguori says of the last seven months in an email to Westword.Related Stories Third Boulder Dispensary Receives Medical Marijuana Delivery Permit CSU-Pueblo to Offer New Degree in Hemp Research COVID-19 Ushering in Automated Future for Retail Pot Covering rent, insurance and utilities without income places many independent concert venues in peril.

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – Coronavirus has pretty much shut down the live concert industry, and it’s not clear when it will be safe to return to those big event gatherings. Some ticket holders want to get their tickets refunded, but some new rules are holding up the money.

Rogers and his partner, Kathy Potucek, are disappointed that they won’t get to see their favorite band, but now they want their money back. They spent about $481 on the tickets, and that money would help them right now. “We don’t know what their objective is with our money. It should be to get it back to us, but it seems like they have some alternative motive,” Rogers told CBS4. Potucek has called TicketOffices.com several times over the last few weeks, and every time she gets a different response. “I did talk to a supervisor one time, and they told me...
