    Whenever possible, I go to the box-office and pay in cash (not credit card). It seems to be the only way to avoid the rip-off fees.
    If it sticks, force it.
    If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.

    im the same. i go direct to the box office. miss out the middle men.

    in some cases the booking fee is almost the cost of the ticket itself.

    its about time artists started using a company that doesnt fleece their fans.

    This is great news as booking fees are really annoying.

    Ticket Tailor (tickettailor[dot]com) is a ticket selling platform that doesn't charge booking fees. This keeps the costs down for event organisers and ticket buyers.
