Ticketmaster suing StubHub

CATEGORY: News

Ticketmaster are suing eBay’s ticket sales subsidiary StubHub for violation of contracts between venues and Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster are apparently the exclusive ticket agent for the Lynyrd Skynyrd and Hank Williams Jr. “Rowdy Frynds” tour, but the Wall Street Journal reports allegations that StubHub “effectively extracted tickets from various client venues by threatening that if tickets weren’t made available, those venues ‘might not be considered as venues for future live-entertainment events.’ ” At the time of writing, StubHub has thirty listings for tickets for the tour.

  1. Interesting – thanks guys! At time of writing, lynyrdskynyrd.com has a huge banner on the front page advertising tickets for sale on StubHub, and the band’s MySpace page says “StubHub Designated as the ‘Rowdy Frynds’ Tour Official Premium Ticket Provider”. Looks like there’s more to this than the original story I linked says… so if anyone has more details, please let us all know!
