Garth Brooks Asked Congress To Make Ticket Scalping Illegal

It might seem like everybody hates Ticketmaster, but one of the biggest country stars in the world, doesn’t. Garth Brooks would like to call your attention to the real enemy…ticket scalpers.

He wrote a letter to Congress, asking to have them banned. He started it off by praising Ticketmaster and he said he’s worked with them for many years. What he witnessed was “a true concern and care for ticket buyers.” 

He even said he’s “grown to love and trust the people at Ticketmaster.” Then he presented his case. 

He said, “my question is, as a country, why don’t we make scalping illegal? The crush of bots during an on-sale is a huge reason for program failure no matter who the ticket selling company is. And the one who always pays for this atrocity is the customer. Making scalping illegal eliminates bots, eliminates dynamic pricing controversies, [and] puts less pressure on the system because it puts everyone on a level playing field.
