Springsteen Ticket Listings Under Investigation

Dec 9, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Ticket listings for concert performances by legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen are at the center of an investigation by the New York attorney general.

The AP reports that the probe centers on what’s being called “speculative” listings for Springsteen’s 2016 “The River Tour” on ticket resale sites, with the investigation focusing on whether the listings amount to deceptive advertising. Tickets go on sale Friday, and hundreds of tickets have already reportedly been listed, with prices as high as $5,000 and up.

“Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sent letters Monday to StubHub, TicketNetwork and Vivid Seats asking about the practice of offering seats on secondary markets when the seller may not possess the tickets,” the story reports.
