  1. Taylor Swift should just sell tickets on website At reasonable prices, instead putting her trust in Tickmaster & Live Nation, cause it's going to Disaster every single time, Live Nation is taking full advantage of Taylor Swift and Venus across the country, I never seen Taylor Swift in concert or even meet her in person @TaylorSwift

  2. Digital ticketing (even when it works as designed) is standing between fans and the events that they would like to see. Too often I'm seeing tickets being advertised for outrageous amounts and I don't purchase the tickets. Then I tune in on TV and there are thousands of empty seats. Straight up price gouging it is.
    What is face value of tickets these days anyway???

  3. Rather watch GG Allin on YouTube or my collection for free .

  4. I bought merchandise from the TS store and got promised the codes, 10 hours in line for pre-sale NO TICKETS, in line with CapOne, SOLD OUT in 28 minutes! S C A M

  5. What a waste of money. They should be thanking Ticketmaster for saving them money. Concerts are nothing but money grabs and dealing with concertgoers who were brought up in a barn.

  6. This is a bunch of BULL!!!!! To act like this over a Taylor Swift concert! Lmfao ….The JUDGE should laugh and throw everyone out! Instead of her fans looking at it like maybe God is keeping them away from another mass shooting or something! That's how I would've perceived it and said well Thank you Jesus! But that's just me I guess!

  7. I wouldnt even let such people sing

  8. I used to have 3 or 4 options where to purchase tickets. How did this result with Ticketmaster becoming the monopoly? This needs to change and quickly or concert and game events will have no audience as the bots and scalpers will have most of the tickets. Folks, refuse to purchase re-sale tickets from these thieves.

  9. It's so unfair that Ticketmaster is basically a monopoly and controls the prices of tickets. It's great that fans are taking action and suing them – hopefully this will lead to more competition in the industry and fairer prices for fans.

  10. I’ll just keep buying CD’s and listen to my music at home. I’d love to go to concerts, but they have become a money grab and I’m not buying into that insanity. On the flip side, streaming music platforms are insanely abusive of performers and I’m not willing to dance that dance either.

  11. Wow wow good sisters ok thanks good

  12. When suckers stop paying a premium for tickets, scalpers will give up.

  13. Nope..ticket master needs to go! It’s ridiculous how they give people first chance then upscale the tickets more than 50% over asking price and the fees are just ridiculous!

  14. Elon released Twitters censorship files

  15. Taylor swift fans can't even name the drummer, or the guitar player or the bass player 🤣

  16. This isn't a Ticketmaster problem. There are a few thousand tickets available and there are 15 million low IQ teenage Swift fans looking for those tickets. The result is 14 million disappointed low IQ teenagers.

  17. Antinatalism is the ethical view that negatively values procreation & concludes that procreation is morally wrong under all circumstances. The gist is: harm/suffering prevention, the questionable nature of gambling with another life, and the impossibility of consent to be born.

    In summary:

    1. There's no reason to create a child that’s for the child's sake. For the unborn child, birth doesn't solve any problem that it doesn't first create.

    2. Existence is imposed without consent. No one chooses to be born or chooses the circumstances of their birth.

    3. Everyone experiences at least some suffering, and some people experience disproportionately more suffering than others.

    4. Existence brings guaranteed harm for unneeded benefit—guaranteed harms being: pain, fear, worry, sickness, injury, grief/loss, fatigue, etc.

    5. Bringing someone into existence means exposing them to all the harms of this world. It should go without saying that the presence of harm is bad.

    6. The only way to guarantee that your kids won’t ever suffer is by never bringing them into this world in the first place, making the absence of harm good.

    7. Even though there is good in this life, the unborn aren’t deprived of anything since they don’t exist to miss out on said good, therefore the absence of pleasure is neutral (neither good nor bad).

    8. No one has the moral right to inflict serious, preventable harms upon others without their consent.

    9. Intentional procreation is intentionally harming your loved ones, a questionable deed.

    10. None of the nonexistent wish to be born but plenty of the living wish they had never lived.

    11. It’s morally questionable to place someone in a position from which death is the only escape.

  18. Good! Ticket master, live nation, need to be stopped. Outrageous prices to see a concert.

  19. 👆 – FIND YOUR LOVE IN YOU CITY! ♂🍒l💥

  20. 👆 – HOT GIRLS PICS FOR YOU 😍❤o😍

  21. I paid 1200 for two tickets in the 112 section at her Tampa concert. F ticket master!

  22. absolutely, TicketMaster is a scalper with a company name

  23. Omg who cares! I wouldn't go see her if she was around the corner!!

  24. Looks like ticket master bought all the old Democrat dominion voter machine

  25. Pearl Jam tried to take on Ticketmaster in '94 for many of these reasons. Hopefully, the Swifties can win.

  26. Rich white woman become richer without working
