    Thumbs down Artists are getting RIPPED OFF BIGTIME!

    The ticket prices are crazy on all of the online ticket agency sites. People who have nothing to do with the show are making ten times more money than the artists who are responsible for the show. It's nuts that America has allowed the practice of online ticketing get so out of hand. It's not fair. You split a ticket share of $289.00 from Ticketmaster as opposed to the 1200.00 on Ticketsiwant.com and you have complete thievery going on. It sucks that Golden Voice would even allow for this bullshit to go on. You go to Coachella and you would never guess that something so great has such a dark and greedy background. Big bummer this year. Coachella is turning into Burning Man. Yuck!

    Pass it on. If you buy from these glorified scalpers you suck too.

    A lot of the times when these bands are asleep at night after the performance and after they are paid, alot of the golden voice people go in and take their money and then say the artist must have gotten to drunk and don't remember getting paid or something. Most of the time gold voices emploiyees do this stuff and the bands dont' even know they are missing the money. Scalpers are just going to keep getting richer because the sobers can't go anymore without the drunkards winning their rights!

    i do have to say, one thing that i have had trouble with is: 3 times this has happened i think, once at vegoose ... i had a night time DMB set of tics ... and yes they were great, 3rd row center .. but some dude begged me to sell my tics to him (for his wife for some reason i think it was) and sent me 600 bucks for two tics i paid maybe 100 for ... that paid for a good part of that fest for me ... i didnt ask him a price or anything, just told him what i paid for them ... i felt bad for a while, but that went away .... so if someone begs you for some tickets you have, and offers much more then you paid , then what do you do ... hummmm dont know ... i do believe in karma and all of that, but it made him so very happy, and put a smile on my face too ..cr*****
