Yeah. I donno. At least Im happy that Im more aware, but I am very disappointed at the same time. I cant say exactly by who, because we still dont have 100% facts. I however, cant do much but some more research and if this guy from the tv show replies and wants to do something with this case, I will let you know. Until then, I hope Pinks people will somehow give us personalized pre sale codes or similar for European dates, because obviously the code we all got last time gave us nothing. I am however not getting **** from resellers or premium seat stuff. ***k that.

No I got a full refund because seat wave (in Ireland at least) is Ticketmaster, yes you pay crazy prices, but you also get refunded... I got a refund for Peter kay tickets just before Christmas

Well, aint that something then!

I remember getting a Rihanna ticket off some site and getting nothing back because Ticketmaster automatically returned money to the card it was purchased with from the start. Hm, anyway different scenarios I guess.

Update. I just got off the phone with the TV guy. He thinks this is very interesting and have asked me to make a little experiment. So I need 9-10 people with me to do this. If you guys wanna help, you can email me asap at danifranjkovic@gmail.com and I will send you the details. Use TV Ticketmaster as topic.

Ugh, this is ALWAYS the case. I paid 700 euros to have a meet and greet with Mariah Carey in Amsterdam in 2016. Guess what,... she came, said high, shake my hand, took a picture and the next one in line was up to do the same. Total time: 45secs. 45 secs!!! For real??? I felt soooo dissapointed. Now I just use photoshop, same result... less money.

That's a crazy amount of money to meet someone, I never really understand payed meet and greets, to pay that much money they should at least pretend to care ask you how you are or how long have you been a fan or favourite album anything at all make an effort!!

Ok, it's getting real guys. Saturday 27th January 9 am (Swedish time) I could need at least 4-5 more of you. 5-6 people are already in and want to help. It's an easy "experiment" that will only take like 15-20 minutes of your time. I'll email everyone the instructions on wednesday/thursday. Would appreciate if you wanted to be in If you do, email me danifranjkovic@gmail.com

PS. It has nothing to do with Pink, just ticket sales in general

Update: They are under investigation now by the Swedish national tv. I got an email this morning that the guy Ive been in contact with put a reporter (and a team?) on it and they are also going through our materials we made that I sent them this week. The reporter will contact me soon he said. Ill keep you guys updated.

Good job everyone involved ❤️ One step at the time, right!

Also if youre experiencing the same issue with Ticketmaster/Livenation in your country and if this works all the way, Id be happy to write a manual that you can use to do this too Who knows if itll lead to a lawsuit or a law against second hand ticketing If not, we are at least making people more aware.

yes the more people aware the more to fight against it. I'm in my 30s and have been going to gigs since a teen and omg can I see the different in how Ticketmaster has become. I understand prices rise over the years but not even given fans a chance anymore. I abhor VIP, premium platinum BS. The scenery of a show is changing because of this. Real fans with no money to the crap seats or pushed out of pit or even worse not going at all. It should be done in rotation but not a chance this happens. Let's hope someone else comes along one day and takes Ticketmaster of its high horse.

Thanks guys.

I honestly dont know how Id do if I was Ticketmaster. I mean its easy to be hard on them and complain and think they do this they do that. And I agree fans are suffering and thats why it bugs me so much. And it breaks my heart reading how fans are sad not to see Pink. Imagine that happening to us ten years ago. Id be heartbroken for years. I think second hand marketing should be banned. I dont mind Ticketmaster being the only ones selling tickets and putting higher prices. Even higher than original price is now. As long as everyone gets the chance to buy tickets. But these other sites ending up with all tickets and putting the price they want, and its funny because the price is the same on all those sites. Thats what bugs me. They can impossibly end up with 1 987 tickets each. On like ten different sites. And the best tickets too. That is where I believe its something ****ty with Ticketmaster. Yeah well, maybe just scrapping tickets and going with a monthly membership like Spotify. Or doing both. I dont know, but this obviously needs to change.

Its been a Problem for Years.
1- First the performer sets the price
(P!nk is out of my prices range)
P!nk is a big star now! & she knows it & she will cash in & make as much money as she can (Like it or Hate it)
& it's not all Tickmaster fault.

2- The scalpers find ways to beat the system w software or maybe they hire a lot of people to buy tickets but some how they get the good tickets

3- ALSO THE Government / State laws are also a BIG part of the problem. They allowed tickets to be sold at any price. Which allowed tickets scalpers to be legal & They also know how BIG the show will be & adjust the price w what the demand will be & its the people willing to pay which drives up the cost for the tickets & P!nk is a big selling star & they know it

4- Beating the system - I now a few trick
Good luck!
