RE: Should third-party ticket brokering be outlawed?
I'm not a big concert goer so it doesn't really affect me but I've used brokers in the past. My theory is if I can't have primo seats, I'm not going. IMO there is no hell on earth more painful than fighting a crowd for nosebleed seats at an arena rock show. I much prefer good seats at small venues. Shoot, I've got a blues bar 5 blocks from my house.
But the whole thing is kind of amusing to me. There was an article in the local rag about the last (I think) Eagles show. Boomers laying out 300 bucks a ticket to hear "peaceful easy feeling" for the 10,000 time (I hate the freaking Eadles) and on the day of the show the promoter dumps hundreds of tickets on local record shops for free to get people to fill the house.
