  • Their fees suck and get worse every year. Unfortunately it is hard to find some tickets anywhere else.

  • I had a problem recently and they threatened to cancel my tickets (paid weeks ago, tickets already mailed to me and in my hands) and even now I am terrified once they're scanned at the venue they may have been voided. hate them to PIECES.

  • I used them to buy Jersey Boys tickets a few months ago without incident. If I wanted to get the same row, same night on stubhub, I easily would pay 3 times what I did through Ticketmaster. But it's like buying airplane tickets. They nickel and dime us to death with stupid ass fees. I don't use them enough hate or like them.

  • Haven't used them in a while, but their fees are ridiculous. Went thru hell when a concert was cancelled & then rescheduled to a date we could not attend. Actually had to have our BIL who is an attorney send them a letter telling them to pay up. :/

  • I don't go out enough to know. If you don't go through ticketmaster, how else do you buy tickets?

  • I don't ever purchase with them, but I use ticketmaster.com very often for work and I like that it's easy to navigate and always up to date lol.

  • You can always buy in person at the box office of the venue of whatever show you're attending. Not as convenient as online but you don't have to deal with ticketmaster.
