I just bought at tix at the 9:30 box office and they are still doing only the $1 fee!
but don't think that applies to all TM shows, just IMP ones.  Now I don't know if you can buy any TM event, I don't think you can
it is likely the same system, they probably just have a policy that it's only IMP

Thanks, that's why I asked. I remember "back in the day" you could buy TM tickets at any TM venue and save yourself the service fees. But this was also in the days of paper tickets, which are damn well prehistoric now.

Well he only got $500 million for his catalog a couple of months ago so he is hurting for cash.

Literally no idea what the difference is between these two GA tickets except one is $1200 less than the other.


also the case with Platinum - no singles except GA

The Case of the $5,000 Springsteen Tickets
Triumphant fans showed up in Ticketmaster’s queue with special codes, only to encounter its “dynamic pricing” system. Was the Boss OK with that?

The whole Springsteen fanbase is up in arms (backstreets.com/btx).  Kind of amusing to read.  I've seen Bruce 80-90 times (I think) many times in GA against the rail.  I would never pay the base fees he is charging prior to the TM dynamic pricing mark-up BS. 

My brother somehow got Springsteen GA tix for Baltimore at face (still ridiculously high $399/ticket plus TM fees).  I told him to put them on stubhub for $5000/ticket and see what happens.

I seen him twice. Once at Vote for Change 2004 at Verizon center and once about 2012 at Nats Park (a friend invited me). Bruce puts on a great show but it’s just not for me…

On subway ride  back home I sat next to David Corn ….we talked a bit about the election..like a day or two later he released that tape that undid Romney

Draw your own conclusions…..

Damn. And I'm not willing to pay $150 to sit in nosebleeds to watch RATM at Verizon Center.

To be fair,  I wouldn't pay $10 to sit in the nosebleeds to see RATM.

Cock has always seemed a little bitter about being left out of the ween circle jerk. But after hearing claims of seeing the boss 100x and being a #strings Head, it all makes sense.

OK, you have a very valid point there, sir. If we're triaging, I need to focus on the ween folks and you can wait. Please have a seat in the waiting room and we'll call your name.
