This post could have been something great.  It could have been completely about my ridiculous amount of excitement over going to see Lady Gaga in September.  Well I guess it still can be a little:


Ahhhhh.  Much better.  What I am not excited about it how expensive it was.  And how impossible it was to buy tickets.  Presale plus the moment they were available and Section 214 is the best available?  I wanted General Admission  🙁  Ok… $85…. It is going to be an amazing night.  Worth it.  Tack on all the fees/charges etc, and it actually ended up being over $100/ticket.  But at this point I was committed.  I was already going in my head and could not back down.

Then the tickets came.  And I was excited again. I wanted to take a picture of the tickets so that I could write up a post about my excitement.  That caused me to look closely at the tickets.  In Pennsylvania, you cannot scalp tickets.  It is illegal.  It’s considering scalping them if you sell them for more than face value.

I’m not considering selling these tickets.  I don’t want to give up this night unless something comes up that would prevent me from being able to go.  But I am annoyed about what is considered face value.  Where are al the stupid fees I paid?!  How is one fee listed for $3, but all the other fees are not?  Why if I sell my ticket at “face value” am I losing $15?  Four tickets, +$18 in fees per ticket.  We spent an unexpected +$72 more than we saw coming.  How is this legal?  How is this not bait and switch?  For four people to go to a show, we nearly had to pay for 5 tickets.

Nonsense, Comcast!  I call shenanigans!
