Re: Furthur should have made Beacon run will call only

Widespread Panic has some acoustic shows at small venues coming up, and they're using an effective strategy to avoid scalpers taking over the ticket sales, not sure of it exactly but its something like this:

You have to present your ticket, your ID, and the credit card you used to buy the ticket upon entering the venue. Its kind of inconvenient and I don't no if it would even be practical but it would definitely put scalpers out of business.

I wouldn't mind standing in an extra line every night if it meant everyone was getting their tickets for face value

I haven't ordered any Beacon tickets but the whole sale of tickets is really starting to be a hassle and I know we can all agree on this wheather you scored a ticket or not.

A number of bands have exercised this option before but there must be some legal mumbo jumbo not allowing this to happen under free will from the band

Other artist ( Tom waits, Pearl Jam) have used this method and it works. Real fans get tickets at legit prices.

Lots of good points. Bottom line something's got to give this shit is a disgrace. TM is organized crime. Crony Capitalism.

I had hoped that this go round would be better than last fall but it hasn't.
