Thieving Toerags!!!!!!!

Who are thieving toerags?

The chavs down the road? No.

The junkie in town? Nope.

The local drunk asleep in the bus shelter? Nah.


I'll tell you who are thieving toerags.

F***ing TICKETMASTER.

I'm snooping around online when I see that the awesome Henry Rollins is bringing his 2008 spoken word tour to the UK in january.
Now I went to the last speaking gig he did in London a couple of years back, and loved every moment of it, so I HAD to get tickets to go again.

And as usual, Ticketmaster pretty much has the monopoly, so I bite my lip and book four tickets for me, the wife and another couple.

The tickets are 16.50 each. No problem, not a bad price.

Plus 3.50 PER TICKET admin fee (!!!!!) That's another 14, for booking 4 seats at a venue. (!!!)

And on top of that, you get two postage options, one is the traditional mailing them to you, at a cost of 2.50

Or you can have them send them in a PDF format to your e-mail, where you print them off yourself, on your own paper, using your own ink.
But that option costs 2.50 as well (!!!) (What exactly are they doing to earn that 2.50?)

So I'm having them mailed to me. At least I feel slightly better about the cost

So the total cost of 4 tickets at 16.50 each is actually 82.50

I HATE TICKETMASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But I do love Henry Rollins, so I stump up the extortionate cost anyways

Indeed, an unjustifiable shaft.

Sorry to hear that, its happened to me a couple of times now and it does p*ss you off - as you say.

I must admit though, I thought a Toerag was one of those new VW off road jobbies?

I hate ticketmaster too!! i try use seetickets.com sometimes it works out cheaper of if you go straight to the venue where the band/whatever are playing you can save a few quid on postage or booking fees
