^ that's for 4 tickets. The fees are the same for all thru TM. 20ish per ticket. Not much you can do about that. But avoiding the flex pricing is a cool thing. Lawn seats at Mansfield only $20...crazy

If all powerhouse bands came together and said no flex pricing...there wouldn't be any. But we'll always get the trusty TM bend over fees :doh

Imagine if FTW had flex pricing back in '15 :shock:

Got sone greats seats for Atlanta. Psyched. They must be some pretty righteous cats for how they handled tickets. Goes to show other popular bands could do it, but refuse to.

The band is actually forcing Ticketbastard to refund their scam fees. What a concept :think

Goes to show man...it can be done...if a band actually wants to. All too convenient to voice ones displeasure (paint the appropriate picture) about the ticketing situation...yet do nothing about it....while pocketing millions.

I still can't believe I bought a lawn seat at Great Woods for 20 bucks lol...I'd say early 90's for Soundgarden might have been the last time a ticket was that cheap there...

Thank You Robert Smith for disproving the notion that a band doesn't have any control over 1) Flex dynamic pricing and 2) TM Fees :rockon

So easy to deceive and not do the right thing is life when you're the one cashing in :doh

But the Cure officially put all that 'oh there's nothing we can do' BS to rest :hand

Bravo man...BRAVO :clap :clap :clap

Agreed 100%. Dead & Company is one of the worst. Sad, seems they go to extra lengths to squeeze every dollar that they can from their fan base

Irving Azoff manages Dead & Co.
He’s also the ex- CEO of Live Nation who did the merger deal with Ticketbastard.
During the Senate’s recent Ticketbastard hearings it was revealed that the performers also receive a negotiated portion of the “convenience fee”, which was originally intended as a way to keep base ticket prices low.

Two fiddy for lawns :hand
