Event Ticket Fees Are Outrageous
This summer, "Phantom Of The Opera" is coming to the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. Since my girlfriend is a huge fan of that musical, I decided to get us a pair of tickets. Fortunately, there are a lot of shows and still quite a few dates where we can land some decent seats.
Although I refuse to purchase the tickets through the online brokers. Because the various fees associated with buying them online are pretty ridiculous. For two tickets, the total amount spent on just the fees would be $50. To me, that is pretty outrageous. And it gets more annoying the way they kinda sneak those fees in.
The thing is, I don't work that far from Hollywood, so I should be able to stop in at the actual box office of the theater and pick up a pair of tickets, and avoid paying the tacked on amount. So that's what I'm going to do this week. I just think there are better uses for $50.
