Not going to the show... Priceless
I swear you people will NEVER learn to not print out your tickets. ITS 3 MONTHS AWAY!!! why do you need them in your hands NOW!!
Didnt buy mine today, there is no point, I gotta go to the glasshouse as it is to buy camping tickets, so why have to worry about getting them online for 2 bucks more?
DESERT Tickets US $249.00 x 1
Total Convenience Charge(s) US $28.80 x 1
Total Building Facility Charge(s) US $16.00 x 1
Order Processing Charge US $5.10
TOTAL CHARGES US $298.90
Did anyone else get inexplicably raped for an additional $11.20?
12/16-18 Day for Night
My bank says a pre-authorization charge of $287.70, as well, but it could be like a restaurant where you get billed for the real amount days later.

No way they could get away with that. You didn't agree to it. Maybe those are the fees for the regular tickets?

JustSteve: or, alternately, install software which allows you to 'print' to a pdf file by installing a printer driver that reroutes to pdf.
Again, everyone who doesnt like ticketfast, QUIT DOING IT. Everyone who is all for saving money, why do you spend more money on something? You are defeating the purpose here of trying to cut fees and charges as much as possible.
I don't think anyone who is using ticketfast would say they don't like ticketfast. I know I think ticketfast is *great*. I also think ticketmaster is an abusive monopoly. They're hardly inconsistent views.
I, for the life of me, will never understand why people have to pay $2.50 to have the ability to print out their own ticket using their own ink and paper, while it's free to to have ticketmaster print real tickets on their paper and mail it to you on their dime.
Ticketmaster is not a monopoly. Tickets.com is one huge one. Almost all of MLB uses it as opposed to ticketmaster. There are tons of other smaller companies as well all over the net.
I do understand they sign exclusive contracts with venues, however many companies do that, it's a way of business. That doesn't equal monopoly.
In December, concert promoter Live Nation, Ticketmaster's biggest client, said it would begin selling its own tickets in 2009. Live Nation accounted for about 15 percent of West Hollywood, Calif.-based Ticketmaster's roughly $1 billion in revenue in 2006.

Thanks for The Stone Roses and blur!!! Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Electrelane, Dum Dum Girls, SISU, HUM, American Analog Set, Unrest, Lush, Inspiral Carpets, th' faith healers and Chavez for 2014 please!
Yeah it's bogus, ticketmaster will do anything to rape your wallet. Mine came up to 287.70.
Now I'm part of the 'yay, I have tickets! but boo service fees club'...
I don't see why GV can't use a different ticket distribution method than Ticketmaster.
and at this point, with $250-$270 tickets (plus the extra $40..), major corporate sponsorship doesn't sound like such a bad thing to me.
Total Charge: US $ 287.70
BARFFFF what was that $21 fee???
What's pissing me off is that i have to pay service charges again tommorrow for camping tix, that's just fucked up. the presale should have included camping
I don't understand people who print the poor man-looking tickets. They pay for it to boot!
Morrissey needs to be shot. He is bad for your soul.
Last year,I waited in line to get in on Sunday with one of the guys who camped next to me.After about a 45 minute wait,we pull out our tickets (I had a hard ticket and he had a Ticket-Fast one) and his was all smeared,to where the barcodes couldn't be scanned, from when we got hosed down by the guy with the hose by the showers.He looked like he was about to cry,and then suddenly he smiled and said,"Man,this is my Saturday ticket!"
He went back and got his Sunday ticket,but he had to wait in the line again.Lesson:If you print out your ticket,print out several and keep 'em seperate.Also try not to get hosed down when you have an inkjet printed ticket on you.
