Bruce Springsteen: Ticketmaster Replies To Criticism In The Midst Of The “Dynamic Pricing” Debate

Bruce Springsteen revealed intentions to embark on a North American tour with the E Street Band for the first time since 2016. Pretty thrilling However, some fans were noticeably less thrilled last week when they went online to the Ticketmaster website to purchase tickets.

Although prices for the Springsteen concerts fluctuated, some of the “platinum” tickets initially cost as much as $5,000. Ticketmaster’s “dynamic pricing” strategy is what led to such absurd costs, and the company is now making an effort to defend this outrageous new level of price gouging.

According to rumors, Ticketmaster will use “dynamic pricing” to drive away ticket brokers and websites like StubHub and SeatGeek. When tickets are on sale, Ticketmaster can charge a lot of money; however, if there are still tickets available after some time has passed, prices may decrease.

In essence, this indicates that Ticketmaster is reselling its own tickets. Although the practice has long infuriated ticket buyers, $5,000 for a Springsteen concert seems like an absurdly new height of insatiable greed.

According to Variety, Ticketmaster is now justifying the entire Springsteen fiasco by asserting that only 11.2% of the tickets for last week’s Springsteen concert were platinum, and that only little more than 1% were for $5,000 or more. Additionally, the website states that the typical Springsteen ticket cost $262, which is still pretty pricey but not as expensive as a used automobile.
