Best of Both Worlds…(yeah, not quite!)

October 7, 2007

Here’s an interesting article in the WSJ.com about the Hannah Montana tour controversy.  They make a good point about why the ticket sellout is getting so much press:

People involved in the tour say that tensions are running particularly high over the Hannah Montana tour because many of the parents who are trying to secure tickets for their children are buying their first concert tickets in years, and thus are unaware of how difficult the Internet has made getting tickets to hot concert tours. On top of that, many parents are wary of disappointing children to whom they have promised tickets.

I have to say, in the past 3 years, I’ve gotten tickets to Yankee playoff games, Bruce Springsteen, The Police, and U2…yet I come up short with Hannah. Plus, little IT never knew that tickets were a possibility.  So the last paragraph doesn’t really apply to me.  The whole thing still boggles the mind, tho.  Ticket brokers getting better access, tickets going on sale on sites like stubhub.com moments after they sold out at Ticketmaster…unreal. 

There was also an article in the NY Times today about the same issue.  A reliable source tells me “Inside Edition”will also be doing a story about it tomorrow or Tuesday.  More about that in my next blog entry…
