Why don't they sell the tickets in person at the stadium/arena they're gonna have a show?

Sun, Jan 20, 2013 at 11:13 PM

Instead of selling tickets online? If they sold the tickets only at the place of the show then that would remove all bots from getting tickets as well have less scalpers who would raise the price of tickets by a lot. Taylor and her record label would get the same amount of money anyways regardless of where they sell it so might as well sell them in person instead of online. One problem that might come from this is people have places to go like work so they can't get the tickets for themselves or their kids but if going to a Taylor concert really means a lot to them then they should be there waiting in line to buy the tickets.

    Agreed! It really would take out all the stress from buying them online.

    The venue I'm going to is something like a 45 minute drive from my house, and I had school, so my dad bought the tickets, but he was also working during it... It'd be a great inconvenience for many people...

    If they did this though it wod be a hassle. First of all some people have to travel in order to go to a show ( this is fine and I'm sure no one minds) but th problem is what happens when you get there wait in line for so long and they find out it is sold out. Then you must travel home upset, and realize that all the gas was a waist. Just my thoughts

    While it would prevent scalpers, it would just make it too inconvenient for everyone else.

    People will have to miss work and school to have a CHANCE at getting them.

    Lines would be too long, but not only that...for Taylor, I bet people would start camping out days ahead of time like Black Friday. Assuming there's only one time and date, I think people would be MORE frustrated overall. It's not that easy just to say "if people really wanted them that bad they would miss work/school/other responsibilities"...and it's not like Black Friday when many people have the day off either.

    At least with online you can do it from anywhere with your phone/tablet/laptop...and you don't lose 1-2 hours in travel time if the tickets are sold out.

    Overall, I certainly understand your frustration of scalpers and ticket prices, but I still think online, while having its disadvantages, is better than in person at the stadium would be.

    In theory, only selling tickets at the venue seems like a wonderful idea because it would prevent scalpers. However, it would just be an inconvenience for everybody. Parents might not be able to or want to take off work to buy tickets. Additionally, teenagers might not be able to miss school or drive themselves to the venue. Even if people were willing to stand in line, it would take far too long to sell the thousands of tickets available, especially for stadium shows. This also doesn't take into account that many people don't live near the venue. I live an hour or four hours away from the two nearest venues. It also might not be as effective as you would think. Scalpers could stand in line just like everyone else. Many venues do sell tickets at the arena in addition to selling them online through TicketMaster. It just isn't plausible to only sell tickets at the venue for an artist as famous as Taylor.

    I wish this could realisitically work as it would solve so many issues but there's nothing to stop scalpers from queuing up too (after all, it's their profession!) and for international fans who are going to see a sho as part of a holiday it would be almost impossible to get tickets!

    As my daughter says, in ancient times (LOL - before internet) the only way we could by tickets was at the venue or at ticketmaster outlets (usually a music store or grocery store customer service desk - one in each town). It did NOT prevent scalpers. They just stood in line as well as paying people to stand in line. So, if it was a super popular concert, the scalper would have hundreds of people in line at hundreds of different outlets and they still got most of the tickets. The only difference was that they had to advertise in magazines/newspapers or stand outside the venue the day of the show to sell their tickets.

    The venue that I want to attend is 13 hours from my house (!!) so that's not really an option for me.

    Also, scalpers would still line up and buy as many as possible.

    I'm attending three Red shows (2 in Canada and 1 in the USA) and I live in Australia... it would be basically impossible for me to have gotten the tickets if I had to travel to the venue to buy the tickets. There is the option of paperless tickets but that also has its drawbacks (you have to actually have the credit card that bought the tickets with you, so say your parents bought you the ticket but you were just going with your friends alone, you woud need to carry their credit card in with you for the whole night).
