Ticket deal too good to be true

Ticketholders to a concert next June at Lincoln Financial Field better look at their purchase carefully.  They might not have paid enough and Ticketmaster wants more money by the end of the week. 

If you bought a club-level ticket to the Kenny Chesney show in June for $25 you didn’t pay the correct price and Ticketmaster wants $75 more.

Allison Wright is the publisher of TicketNews.com.  She says the Ticketmaster reserves the right to fix such errors in the “fine print” terms of service that most people don’t read.

“You can’t really go back and fight something that was written in the terms of service when you purchased the tickets and the terms you agreed to when you purchased the tickets,” said Wright.

The Philadelphia Eagles own the stadium.  Spokesperson Pamela Browner White says there is nothing the team can do.

“When it was discovered it was immediately rectified it was an unfortunate error, but both parties stepped forward to fix it and made sure the parties were notified of the information,” Browner White said.

Between 200 and 300 tickets are involved in the mixup.

Ticketmaster has not responded yet to a request for comment.
