Why I am no longer a fan of Madonna…

  • February 27, 2012
    • Attempted Ticket Purchase via Ticketmaster a.k.a. TicketMonster. My computer is fired up and ready at 10 am. 10:00:30 SOLD OUT! WTF?!?!?!?!? They sell out in 30 seconds? I’m in total shock!
    • Several calls made to TicketMonster to request disabled seating. NO ONE called me back with any kind of confirmation until 9p. They couldn’t get me 2 seats together! My wheelchair bound best friend and I couldn’t be seated together and they were sorry but happy to sell me the seats they could find. They advised trying another online source.
    • Tickets purchased via VIVID Tickets but upon receipt of tickets find they say Ticketmaster . TicketMonster sold tickets to VIVID a.k.a. BIG GIANT SCALPER! $632.51 is the total I had to pay to see Madonna a.k.a. MEDUSA!
  • October 19, 2012 – We get the cancellation notice!
    • Medusa cancelled the show due to “severe laryngitis“. I call Bullsh**! I have been singing all my life (but never seeking fame) and I have suffered severe laryngitis (currently suffering) and it takes more than 36 hours to get over it! Medusa hasn’t liked or been to Dallas in over 20 years and I feel it was just an excuse to screw people who have been loyal and could care less about her political feelings about Texas!
    • I returned tickets to BIG GIANT SCALPER OCTOBER 22, 2012 and they claim to have processed my refund 2 days after concert October 24, 2012.
  • October 26, 2012
    • I called WELLS FARGO a.k.a. BIG GIANT CROOKS (mortgage fraud, usurious fees) to check and see if the money had posted. BIG GIANT CROOKS claim they have not received any refund information as of OCTOBER 26, 2012. The idiot agent tells me to call back on MONDAY OCTOBER 29, 2012 to file a claim if it hasn’t posted by then.
    • I go into my local branch to speak with someone and was told they have gotten the same complaints but no fraud involved (I beg to differ) so no claim can be filed. I’m also told they can’t trace the refund either! I called BIG GIANT SCALPERS and they claim BIG GIANT CROOKS received the refund information Friday OCTOBER 26, 2012
  • October 31, 2012
    •  BIG GIANT SCALPERS offered to fax their record of receipt they received from BIG GIANT CROOKS. I called BIG GIANT CROOKS back and was informed there is no place to fax it and I just have to wait which could take up to 3 weeks (see graphic above)! In this digital age, it should not take 3 weeks to receive funds back into my account that were electronically transferred to begin with. The money has to take the same electronic route back into my account so why does it take longer to return that route back into my account(apparently 3 weeks) than to leave my account into the merchants (less than 48 hours)? Needless to say, this will be the last concert ticket purchase via TicketMonster or ANY of their affiliates!

  1. Hi there,

    My name is Brittany and I work for Vivid Seats. I just wanted to clarify that we are not affiliated with TicketMaster in any way. In addition, we do not purchase tickets from TicketMaster or any other secondary source. Vivid Seats merely offers a marketplace for individuals or brokers to sell and purchase tickets online.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and will do whatever we can to help aid you in finding a resolution. Please feel free to contact us should you have any additional issues or questions.

    Thank you for choosing Vivid Seats.
    Customer Care

    • “Vivid Seats merely offers a marketplace for individuals or brokers to sell and purchase tickets online.” To me Brittany, this statement makes your company an accomplice at the very least! Allowing “brokers” also know as scalpers to do business and bilk people out of more than the face value of the ticket is criminal! The entire ticket purchase process is criminal! I stand by my statement of events!
