It's about to go DOWN! Two U.S. Senators want answers from the two largest ticket sellers when it comes to their secret scalper program uncovered by CBC News and The Toronto Star.
"The allegations of the harms to consumers made in this piece are serious and deserve immediate attention," wrote Sens. Jerry Moran and Richard Blumenthal in a letter to Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino.
Hidden camera videos released by the two news outlets showed Ticketmaster employees admitting to a reliance on "clients" who resell millions of dollars worth of tickets each year through the ticket outlet.
Reps told an undercover reporter that they look the other way when it comes to scalpers using hundreds of Ticketmaster accounts to bypass box-office ticket-buying limits.
And you wonder how all those shows sell out and then half the house goes back in RESELL at almost DOUBLE the price right?
Don't be surprised if SEVERAL Bands, Artists, Sports leagues & teams get pulled into this. SHADY DEALINGS all around I tell you.
This is the kind of crap I am talking about!
