You want tickets to see your favourite band but you know how it is, they go fast. You decide to splurge on the secondary, inflated, market and buy your tickets from them. No problem right? After all StubHub is a partner with the venue you’re going to.
But then, the day before the show, the venue announces on Twitter you MUST have photo ID that matches the name on the ticket.
Well you aren’t the original purchaser, this was a ticket reseller in partnership with the venue????!!! Too bad. Your name isn’t on the ticket? No entry.
Hundreds of Foo Fighters fans were turned away at the O2 Arena for the Foo Fighters show last night for this very reason.
Ya, I’d be furious too.
