How hard is it to score tickets to the Blink-182 reunion tour? Not even Mark Hoppus was able to do it.
The Blink bassist says he tried and failed to buy a pair of tickets online, after fans complained about Ticketmaster’s ‘dynamic pricing’ system.
He wrote “I understand that the ticketing can be frustrating. I bought tickets for two of our shows myself just to see what the experience was like. I had tickets yoinked from my cart and the whole thing crash out. Dynamic pricing. I’m not in charge of it. It’s meant to discourage scalpers. We’re trying to bring you the best possible show for the best price.”
How would you fix the modern ticket-buying system? Should we go back to camping out outside the venue to buy tickets at the box office?
