Thanks to a class-action lawsuit — my favorite kind of lawsuit after torts (if only because I like to imagine they involve two chocolate desserts battling it out in a court of law) — you may be entitled to free general admission ticket vouchers courtesy of Ticketmaster.
From Consequence of Sound:
Email alerts regarding the lawsuit were sent out last month to the unfortunate music fans who paid Tickermaster’s outrageous overcharges and bought tickets through the site between October 21st, 1999 and February 27th, 2013. Though for those who no longer have the same email they did back in ’99, it’s easy to check if you have some vouchers waiting for you — log into your Ticketmaster account and view “Active Vouchers” to find out if your day just got a whole lot better. (Editor’s Note: I never received an email but received a bunch of vouchers, so make sure to check regardless!)
Seeing as I first heard about this from a less-than-reputable Facebook friend, I assumed it was all a bunch of bologna. But alas, when I clicked on the “Active Vouchers” link, I saw that I had two vouchers, each entitling me to two general admission tickets (four total) for approved events, as well as two discount codes for $2.25 each (damn, now I can finally afford that bag of Werther’s Originals I’ve been eyeing the past few weeks). Not too shabby, considering I had no idea this lawsuit even existed. If being outraged is requisite when it comes to claiming these tickets, however, I’m going to put on an absolute clinic. I’ll flip some tables, punch a toddler, steal and then crash an ambulance — whatever it takes to get free admission to the “approved events” that what will probably end up being an acoustic set by Duncan Sheik’s Parkinson’s-inflicted step-nephew or something equally as cacophonous.
The tickets will be available to be claimed on a first-come, first-served basis until the $400 million mark is reached, so hop to it..
