Bruce please, let’s face it: there’s a problem @springsteen #scalpers #BruceSpringsteenTickets #TheriverTour2016


Dear Bruce, you are actually Mr. Springsteen. You have the power to do something about your fans getting taken advantage of. Why are you not doing anything about? I just tried to get tickets to the Barclay Centre. Logged in, wait 20 minutes to be told that there are no more tickets. But that’s not necessarily true, now, is it? The scalpers have sucked them all up. The internet has turn this from a hustler’s profession to a well oiled-machine that rips off fans. Are you okay with this? Is that what you’re about? If so, fine. But say something. Shouldn’t the artist take a stand? The lack of comment from you Bruce suggests that you are out of touch or, worse, don’t give a crap. So what would make you care that your fans are getting ripped off in your name? An artist of your stature can take a stand on such injustices and make a difference. Why wouldn’t you? At least write a song about it, but just don’t ignore it.

  1. just heard a program about this. many high level artists set their ticket cost at a reasonable price but then back door them to the hustlers and take a cut of the inflated prices. The artist then appears like a good guy and blames the bad guy. In reality, the artist maintains his reputation as a man of the people but gets the big money.

    If Bruce wanted to stop it he would go to credit card entry for all premium seats. it’s not that hard.


  2. I’m not actually saying that Bruce is involved in this kind of plot, and I imagine it’s not easy to change the system, even if you are Bruce Springsteen. But I’m sure that if there’s someone who could do something to try to change things, this would be Bruce.
