Great news this week, for any music loving concert goer in the United States of America. If you purchased any tickets from ticketmaster.com between October 21st, 1999 and February 27th, 2013! As the result of a 2003 class action lawsuit filed against the company they opened a huge amount of free tickets to fans. The first batch of which being made available in June of 2016. It is usual to see big companies taken to task for large sums of money. But this particular result directly benefits the consumers that had their live experiences tarnished. Free gigs for all!
Earlier in the Week…
Earlier this week, Ticketmaster announced that more would be available in the form of vouchers given out to class members. Those same members would also receive a $5 UPS discount code. As well as a further $2.25 discount code for all future ticket purchases, remaining valid until June 2020.
If that wasn’t enough, they released even more free tickets yesterday. (June 19th) with hundreds of shows across 35 cities in the US being available. Best to act fast to get yours, there is a link below if you are one of the people owed a voucher! The website also offers further explanation into the lawsuit, and how exactly to redeem the codes.
There are hundreds of dates to choose from, but I would personally recommend going for any of the available Foreigner w/ Cheap Trick and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience tour dates, Good Goo Dolls or Lynyrd Skynyrd & Hank Williams Jr. For the more punky amongst you, Sublime & The Offspring are playing in December, and for the country fans there is the one and only Brad Paisley. Not bad at all for free tickets!
