Ticket Scaplers, Toby Keith Concerts, and the Law
Thinking about buying Toby Keith tickets online? Don't get
taken to the cleaners...basic tips on how to avoid problems with
ticket sellers and the law.
Tip #1 When possible, buy from a reputable agent. That goes
without saying. First, go to a place like Ticketmaster, type in
your desired artist in the search bar. They will give you a list
of places and events in the area you want.
Depending on location, you'll see different ticket options. For
example, at the Pensacola Civic Center, Pensacola, FL- Tody
Keith, you have these options listed below. Copy them, this will
give you an idea what the base price is. Just because Main Floor
is listed doesn't mean it's available.
---Ticket Options---- UPPER LEVEL * 3RD LEVEL FROM FLOOR US
$39.75 - US $54.75
RISER LEVEL * 1ST LEVEL FROM FLOOR US $54.75
LOWER LEVEL * 2ND LEVEL FROM FLOOR US $39.75 - US $54.75
MAIN FLOOR US $54.75 ---Ticket Options----
These are your best prices you'll may find.
Tip #2 Buy Early. The early bird does gets the worm
Tip #3 When there isn't much time, try Ebay.
Now if you decide to go the ebay route, here are some helpful
a) Try to buy from someone who knows the area, if possible. They
may know the best seats, motel and hotels, and rental car deals.
Check their feedback closely (the number next to their user name)
b) You'll pay more on ebay. Absolutely. Get the quality seats,
know exactly where your seats are. Don't pay double for
'nosebleed seats' way up top.
Here's the rules on selling tickets
(Quote)When selling a ticket on eBay for an event taking place
in a regulated state, sellers are required to disclose the face
value of each ticket (face value includes the price of the
ticket and any service charge and tax charged by the original
ticket provider that is printed on the ticket). Sellers
misrepresenting the face value of their tickets may have their
listing ended, may be permanently suspended from eBay, and may
be subject to criminal prosecution.
For resale of tickets with a face value of $300 or more per
ticket (ONLY if the event occurs in a regulated state), sellers
must include proof of the ticket face value in the item
description in the form of a partial scan of the actual ticket -
clearly showing the face value and the event date - or else risk
having the listing ended.
Be safe, on my website is a link to the rules for ticket sales
in every state. It covers the buyer or seller, in or out of
state purchases, and the regulations for each state.
