Wired.com on Ticketmaster and Online Ticketing

November 5, 2010

Wired.com has a very interesting article on Ticketmaster and why no one can take it down. We all hate “those goddamned Ticketmaster service fees,” and as the article suggests we all hate the lack of innovation coming from them as well. But the article also shows the reliability they offer that no one has been able to beat yet.

The question I have for you is what ticket services do you like buying from? Which are easiest to use form the consumer end? I must admit I rarely have to buy tickets online so I am not the best critic of their different strengths and weaknesses.

What do you all think of TicketWeb.com (that I use)?
What about MyEasyTix.com (that Stateside Presents mostly uses)?
Front Gate (that UM uses)?
eTix.com that Luckyman and The Marquee use?
Or PayPal like Mantooth Group use?

Any you love? Or hate?

Any that I am forgetting? Any new innovative new ticketing option you wish people would use?
