Ticket shenanigans

I got shut out of Pulp’s upcoming concert at Radio City, but as fate would have it my misfortune is not the failure that began to circulate yesterday; that honor belongs to the legions of Bruce Springsteen fans that got screwed by Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster are claiming that they were hit by scalpers that created an “abnormal volume” of orders, thus killing their system.  People seem to forget that this happens constantly when it comes to hot tickets and Ticketmaster, and, as per usual, scalpers are selling on Ticketsnow, which is owned by Ticketmaster.  So, whether or not you were personally able to score tickets yesterday or if you give in to the scalpers, Ticketmaster wins either way.  Great for them.  You can expect that there will be no new safe-guard put into place to prevent this from happening, and for this situation to repeat whether or not Rollingstone chooses to report it.
