Artists need to boycott Ticketmaster
I’ve created this petition for P!nk to gain awareness of what happens when she sells her tickets through ticketmaster.
P!nk recently announced her Beautiful Trauma world tour, and presale for North America dates began on October 10th, unfortunately not everyone had access to an AMEX card, or never received an email for a Verified Fan presale, therefore missed out on tickets. The general public sale began on October 13th at 10:00am, but all venues were sold out in minutes, why? Scalpers. Scalpers bought out all the seats for every venue (despite Ticketmaster’s “purchasing limit”) and have been reselling tickets at alarming prices back through Ticketmaster. To give an example, the original price for a seat in the 300 level is being resold for a price of $9,400!
How is Ticketmaster allowing this? Ticketmaster is known for their horrible customer service (believe me, I called them twice on October 10th and both that answered the phone sounded like they just woke up and as clueless as if they lived on another planet, wasting an hour of my time with no answers) and now, they just don’t care what happens after their tickets have been purchased.
This ultimately results in enraged fans losing out on tickets, or fans getting scammed into believing these are true prices and afterwards attacking the artist. The artist has nothing to do with this, their original prices are completely reasonable, and the artists have no clue what is happening.
This petition was created to bring to the attention of any artist that sells tickets through ticketmaster (including P!nk), and to get these artists to stop using Ticketmaster.
If you agree, that artists should use an alternative ticket selling website for their tickets, please sign below, and tag P!nk.
