What's worse is that now even Ticketmaster is trying to get in on scalping revenues. That's not the solution! There is no reason tickets to a kids' show should be that expensive, but if people are willing to pay that market price - than who do you blame? Either way, TM should should NOT be trying to make money off of the same tickets twice!
This blog goes into the details: http://collegecandy.com/buzz/5810
But either way, concert tix overall have gotten WAY out of control.

It is impossible to get tickets for anything anymore.
These companies are doing this with all the top events.
I went on stub hub the day bruce tickets went on sale and they had 13 pages of tickets for sale for the new jersey concert and that was just the 1st day of the concert that not included the other dates... bruce plays a several days in NJ
This is getting insane.
I have always been able to get tickets thru ticketmaster or pay extra on ebay. But it getting completely insane.
Everything is sold out in 30 minutesor less.
In the last few years i have gotten bruce springsteen 7th row, bonjovi near stage, cheetah girls front row first tier.
this year. And i always paid the extra extra money.
this year the extra extra money will only get me the worst seats in the stadium.So this year we didn't see bruce or bonjovi. and wasn't able to get my daughter hannah tickets either.. this is really getting out of hand

the stub hub people say that they are not stealing, but I live in a small town with a 10,000 seat arena that Hanna Montana will be playing at. Had companies like stub hub not been stealing from hard working parents tickets would have cost around 250 for me and my three daughters, for really good tickets. They are not going to see Hanna Montana because I don't have the 1500.00 it will not cost me through stub hub. On stub hubs own sight they have 128 tickets listed for sale. It cost stub hub a maximum of 7,168.00 for those tickets. Stub Hub is selling those tickets for a total fo 44,813.00 If that is not scalping then I don't know what is. This is as illegal as the guys who stand in front of the arena selling, only Stub Hub gets rich and the guys in front go to jail. The system needs fixing.

I've just returned from the concert in Mnpls, MN and heard a woman behind me say that she just purchased her tickets a week before the concert. I don't know how these late release tickets were made available, but it is sad for those who spent hours of their time in the weeks and months prior, only to be told tickets were sold out, thus giving up hope of attending. It seems there are a lot of misunderstandings regarding the tour.

I think if you call the phone number next to MileyWorld on your charge card they have to refund you.

Yes, many of us paid the $30. The concerts were sold out 10 minutes after presale, yet the disney / Hannah Montana website allowed us to think we could still get tickets by not updating their website... Those funds should be refunded. I requested that on the Hannah Montana website, however my request was never responded to. That was 3 weeks ago.

i am from Omaha Nebraska and i wanted to say hannah montana did a show here at the qwest center and there were alot of people that paid tons of mony for tickets they never got and those little girls just cried outside and it was so heart breaking to see them and i felt so bad they are just kids, i do know that one of our local news channel did a short story on a couple of them but there were several more. i also know that some of these people got there tickets from ticketnow.com they were told the tickets would be at the box office and come night of concert there were no tickets, these people payed hundreds of dollars its very sad that people would rip off little kids like that . i hope that something will be done about this

All Hannah fans TM, the Promoter, & others are laughing at you people right now. They are sitting in their lavish mansions all laughing on how they screwed the fans and made a killing off of these shows. By them rigging the sales, holding back tickets, & stealing tickets for themselves they have created the biggest rigged tour of all time. They created the problem because of their greedy selves trying to make the most monies that they can. TM is the 1st company that must be penalized for their role in illegal ticket sales.

TicketMaster is to blame for all ticket sales where you don't find seats. They take full advantage of the monopoly that they created by rigging all their sales so that good seats for average shows are no longer available and popular shows like Hannah sellout in minutes. TicketMaster is the most corrupt company in the world. They are out there to make as much money while screwing the fans. Did you know that TM scims the top of the best seats in the house to scalp for themselves. They also have under the table brokers which they also give tickets to. They hold back tickets which usually never make it to the public sale. TM also allows brokers to use automated software to buy up all the seats for shows which is what happened in the Hannah case. They could stop these people but choose to put all their monies into stopping normal fans from buying tickets by locking them out and controlling what tickets are put out. They allow their under the table brokers to buy up all the seats to sell for high monies.

SOLUTION: PEOPLE LETS STOP TICKETMASTER BEFORE THEY ARE UNSTOPPABLE. START BY WRITING LETTERS TO YOUR LOCAL AUTHORITIES AND LOCAL POLITICIANS TO HAVE TM INVESTIGATED FOR ILLEGAL TICKET SALES. TURN TM INTO THE BBB OR ANY OTHER COMPLAINT SERVICE SO THAT PEOPLE KNOW OF YOUR ISSUES WITH TM. LETS GET THESE PROBLEMS OUT IN THE OPEN AND LETS BAN TOGETHER TO STOP TM FROM CONDUCTING THEIR ILLEGAL TICKET SALES. IF YOU DON'T THEN BE PREPARED FOR TICKETS TO BE GONE FOR EVERY POPULAR SHOW.

RACHEL DO YOU WANT TO STOP THE KIDS FROM CRYING? REPORT TICKETMASTER TO YOUR LOCAL AUTHORITIES AND LETS HAVE THEM STOPPED. TM ALONG WITH THE PROMOTER ARE THE GREEDY CORRUPT CORPORATE EXECUTIVES THAT SCREWED THE KIDS BY HOLDING BACK TICKETS AND ALLOWING THEIR BROKERS TO SELL TICKETS AT HIGH DOLLAR AMOUNTS.

I was solicited by Mileyworld.com to join their website in order to purchase pre-sale tickets. I joined for $30.00 expecting to get PRESALE tickets and low and behold NO TICKETS AVAILABLE at the web site that solicited me to join to get the tickets. It took them a month to get back to me and the message I got back stated

"Because it was explicitly stated when you joined that memberships are non-refundable and tickets are not guaranteed, we cannot issue a refund. We apologize for the inconvenience. NOTE:== If you do not wish to be charged for next year, please un-check the automatic membership renewal box under the "my account" page. Not sure what to do but I am pissed and I am a very vengeful person "the kind that sits awake at night thinking of ways to get back several times over".
If you want the phone number for mileyworld to complain then dial
three one, zero - seven, three, four - eight, six, nine, two. Also feel free to email Jill at mileyworld.immstudio.com

I have a 9 year old daughter that loves hannah montana and was very excited about her concert but guess what we cant get tickets now what do i listen to crying mommy thats my favorite and thats all i wont to do is go to the concert something should be done about scalpers buying these tickets like that. Maybe they should think about letting her do another concert at the same cities.And make u buy them in person do something different on them.

Wouldn't ticket scalpers outside an arena be arrested? So why do we allow these companies to commit this crime via the web?

Hannah Montana will lose her popularity next year and all of you will wish you had saved the money for college (which never goes out of style).

I joined the fan club but only temporary and wasn't charged 30 for doing so. I got 2 tickets when they went on sale that day 5 rows from the stage.
as far as Ravens tickets, these are easily available on craigs list, sunpaper and you can usually get them for face value especially this past year. People just need to learn how to shop.
