good initiative!! I completely agree, I think they should be held accountable. But they won't unless people demand them too. If even then. If enough people are mobilized it could happen. Then it could get more publicity too.
If we would write some simple e-mail template that people could just copy and maybe edit a little and send out? Like petitions. This could be shared in the fb groups where everyone is upset, maybe a whole bunch would send them out.
I can retweet your tweet and tweet them myself but I use my twitter very seldom and don't have many followers.
Thanks! Wait with the RT until we have a plan. I have good contact with the admin of a 12k Pink fan FB group which is super active, she'd help me getting it out, so that's a good idea.
Thing is, I don't wanna come off hateful or negative, I just want some answers because as it is now I feel nothing but injustice both to her devoted fans who would already pay a lot to see her, but also to her for making it seem like she's doing it. So I think we deserve some answers.
As it is now, my impression of and the way I understand all of this is that Pink and co have a price tag (that's what sets the original price per ticket) and the Ticketmaster/venue pays that to Pink and co, and then Ticketmaster/venue do what they want with the tickets as long as they do their job to sell them so they can get back the money they paid Pink and even earn more. So to make it all look good, they sell just a few percent of tickets per category for the original price, and the rest as Ticketmaster's premium seats for at least $1000 more, "because ticket touts and reselling sites shouldn't scam the fans", which in fact is just plain bull**** because the reselling sites get tickets from Ticketmaster to sell as high as possible (since they get 90% of the tickets - anyone can see that!). And if these reselling sites don't sell, tickets will get back to Ticketmaster again and they will release them later because they "kept some for us fans to be released later so we wouldn't be scammed", soOoooo nice aweeee. And also the reason they are not transparent with how they work with this (see picture above) is because people wouldn't buy tickets from reselling sites but they'd instead wait it all out til prices came down again and through Ticketmaster. Which is a loss for everyone. Even for Pink. Because she wouldn't sell out within 5 minutes and be able to add one more date. I know it's money and I don't blame anyone for wanting to make a business and keep the cash flowing, but I think this is dirty business. And I won't change my mind until they open their mounts and tell us the truth no matter what the truth is. Maybe I am 100% wrong about all this, but this is what my impression is and what my gut feeling is after putting all pieces together. Plus, it's just encouraging other people who wanna make fast cash too. I wouldn't in a million years think of selling my original price 3x$425 tickets for 3x$2 000 just to make a buck of it. When it comes to music and dedication there's no money in the picture, and somehow we need to feel that coming back from the other side too. In a real and honest way. It's not enough with a presale code that everyone gets which doesn't get us anywhere.
