Upcoming Concerts (or My "I Hate Ticketmaster" Rant)

I hate the ticketing fees they add on to every concert or theater performance. It's not that they add this fee on. It's how much it is. I understand why bands/singers outsource the ticketing to independent companies like Ticketmaster. It's too much hassle. And I'm fine with a small fee of 2 or 3 dollars. The ticketing companies do have to pay for rent, employees, websites, etc. But $9.50 added onto my $55 Muse ticket? That's over 15% of the ticket price and doesn't include the $3 shipping/handling fee.

But, on the bright side, I have Muse and Powerman 5000 tickets. :-D
