The First Black Keys Show In 5 Years Leave Hundreds Of Fans At The Door!

StubHub Vividseats Black Keys

Fake ticket for the Black Keys concert

 

Do you trust third party sites like StubHub and Vividseats to buy your concert tickets? After what happened to the Black Keys fans last night in Los Angeles, you really have to wonder… According to CBS News, hundreds of fans were turned away at the entrance of the Wiltern where the Black Keys were performing the first time in 4 or 5 years.

These fans had purchased their tickets through reselling sites such as StubHub, Vivid Seats and SeatGeek, but were told at the entrance of the venue that their tickets were fake!

The tickets, sold via Ticketmaster, were mobile-only and ‘not transferable’ as the giant ticket dealer declared, although this important information may not have been clearly told to people when they purchased tickets for sometimes hundreds of dollars!

Here is Ticketmaster’s statement: ‘The presenters of the concert directed that these tickets be made available only to fans and that they be strictly nontransferable. This was messaged from the beginning with the announcement of the performance and throughout the sales process. Unfortunately, bad actors took advantage of this situation and posted screenshots of tickets that were not valid for entry onto the secondary market. We always recommend purchasing tickets from the official source.’

If it is the case, why did reseller sites like StubHub allowed people to post and sell screenshots of their non-transferrable tickets? Aren’t they responsible for such a fiasco? Some of these fans paid as much as $800 for these tickets!

According to a few twitter posts, the theater door personnel believe that 50% of people were turned away, which means it was a scam on a huge scale,.. we are certainly not talking about a few tickets.

From what I understand, it is unclear when Ticketmaster decided to make the tickets not transferrable –  some fans said it was a last-minute decision as this option was apparently not in the emails they had received… I have included a few screenshots of some Tweets.

I doubt these people will ever get their money back. But, what does it mean? That the StubHub tickets for Thom Yorke at the Greek theater are all fake for example? Last time I went to his show, the tickets were also not transferrable. Still, there are hundreds of them on many reselling sites. Has the ticket business become a huge scam?
