It may just represent a hit to the secondary market and ultimately takes the profit that ticket brokers would normally derive and puts it in the pockets of Tickets Now type sites. Which is owned by TicketMaster. Ultimately they are only creating a business model that is best for their bottomline. It is hard to blame a corporation for increasing their profit. As more acts strike up their own delivery deals, ie Madonna. And less work with dedicated ticket delivery engines like TicketMaster. They will be forced to relinquish more of the pie.

Her US stops include Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Miami, Houston, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and concluding in Chicago.
These destinations must be hotspots from a Fan Club perspective. Ensuring that her show is sold out. It is also surprizing that other major markets like New York, St Louis, Philadelphia weren't included.

Ticket Brokers are supposed to act in your best interest. They should give you as many options as they can - where you can find tickets at the best prices if they don't have tickets that fit your needs. They should also provide you with information about who are the best resources and most reputable.

The Toronto Harbourfront Centre is a great place to be in the summer. They have some great eats and cool shows that are FREE. Yes, that is correct.
HarbourFront Centre - Free Events - Whats On
If you are close to High Park - than check out the CanStage for some Shakespeare in the Park. There is a nominal donation, but its a very reasonable.
Downsview Park is full of great fun and plenty of stuff to keep your weekend having fun. Not really about shows - more about great family fun in the sun.

Dear Ticket Brokers,
Thank you for giving me access to so many online ticket brokers. I called some local services out of the Yellow Pages - I thought the prices they quoted for the upcoming Cold Play concert was a bit much. After finding your site I was able to find great selection on StubHub.ca through your site. I would have not known of StubHub if not for your site.
Thank you -

Is this fair market? Or is it gauging? In my opinion it's fair market - if this were a fixed good, something that people truly need to live. My opinion would be different. If you don't want to pay the going rate, you have the option of staying home. Madonna is just trying to keep the middle men to a minimum. Currently there are alot sticky fingers taking their percentages before a ticket makes its way into the hands of the average consumer. As Superstars feel the pain of lower album/cd sales - habits like this will be come more common.

Ticket Brokers are now just like any other industry - they buy it at one price and sell it for a nice profit. Sometimes they get caught with the tickets. But for the most part they are doing very well see positive margins, or there wouldn't be so many people trying to do it. This practice up until recently was pretty illegal, not anymore! MLB has embraced the entire process, as has TicketMaster who purchased the site TicketsNow.com just to provide ticket purchasers another way to get their tickets. This raises the question, is a system that is setup that handicaps the consumer and helps the ticket broker, a fair means of giving consumers(everyday fans) a way to get tickets??
I think there is a bit of muddy water - when the original source is also involved in the after market. Ultimately, it is an oligopoly - close to a Monopoly.

Personally, I obviously never had an issue. It is just like a grosser providing me with fruits and vegetables. Do I really want to go all the way to wholesaler everytime i need some pears?? No.
How is this any different.

After doing some research - asking some ticket brokers over the phone and then reviewing the closing bids of online bid sites. We determined that the lowest purchase price on average was from a peer to peer ticket site. Meaning you won't ever be in competition for tickets and you won't have to wait to find out if you won the bidding. I don't like waiting for anything... Plus, if I didn't win - the cost would increase for the next bidding.
