Jason Aldean to Feature Restricted Ticketing at Metro Detroit Show - Michigan Ticket Fairness

Jason Aldean to Feature Restricted Ticketing at Metro Detroit Show

-->

CALLING ALL COUNTRY FANS – pay attention if you’re hoping to go see Jason Aldean perform with Cole Swindell and Tyler Farr at DTE Energy Music Theatre this summer.

The September 18 show will also feature: … drum roll please … restricted ticketing

So what does this mean for fans that just want to see their favorite artist perform? 

  • Tickets are NON-TRANSFERABLE. You won’t be able to sell them to a friend if something comes up the day of the concert – to unload them, you’ll have to jump through Ticketmaster’s hoops, which include another round of hefty fees. You cannot even give your ticket away. Not exactly consumer-friendly!
  • Fans will “conveniently” have their tickets paired to their credit card used to purchase them, meaning you’ll have to present the card and your I.D. upon entry.
  • The entire party must enter the venue at the same time. You’re out of luck if your friends are late getting out of work or get stuck in a traffic jam on I-75 – you’ll have to wait for them or cut your losses.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, April 24 at 10:00 AM, but presale has already started for select groups - you’ll need the odds to be “ever in your favor” to get some.

And if you do get through on Ticketmaster’s website, you’ll be seeing this subtle warning under the “Please note” section: 

Hopefully Ticketmaster’s restricted ticketing machinery doesn’t break down like it did a week ago.

Don’t forget to write your state senator and tell them to support fair ticket practices in Michigan and HB 4015. The House passed it weeks ago – we’re halfway there!
