A couple years ago, I forever changed my disposition toward Ticketmaster, Live Nation and the like. It's really quite simple and it goes something like this: if you don't want high prices for tickets, don't pay them. The only reason that ticket prices keep going up is that demand exceeds supply, which makes sense. Except that now these ticket companies are maliciously manipulating your perception of supply. I rarely scalp tickets for sports OR music. If I can't get 'em for face value, then I'll find something else to do.

So TM and LN can go ahead and merge. Bands and teams will start to play for empty seats because people will start to realize that one night of fun should not cost the same as a college education. It's already happened with the Gold Circle (or whatever) at Yankee Stadium. Not that I want the entertainment industry to suffer as a whole, but these companies count on YOU to survive. If you don't like what they're up to, bankrupt them. Save your money and go on vacation somewhere, or at least buy a few more beers at Moondance Jam and support your local music scene more frequently.

That's what I think anyway.

If the evil of Live-Ticket-MasterbatioNation has an arch-nemesis, it could be Axl.
