Last-minute cheap seats for Paul McCartney show angers fan

Friday, August 09, 2013

At least one Paul McCartney fan says he's angry he paid full price for tickets to the former Beatle's concert in Winnipeg next week, when much cheaper tickets have started appearing online. Tickets to McCartney's concert at Investors Group Field on Aug. 12 are going for as little as $17 on websites like StubHub, with floor tickets as low as $40.

By contrast, official prices on Ticketmaster start at $35 and go up to $250. Todd Trudeau, a longtime Beatles fan in Winnipeg, said he paid $1,200 for four tickets so he and his family could go. "If I would have waited, I could've bought 15 tickets then, instead of four, for what I paid for. It's not right," he told CBC News on Thursday. Trudeau said he's furious that he paid full price for the tickets when they're going so cheaply now. "That pisses me off because that's not right. I paid so much money to go see them — big fan of theirs," he said."Maybe they should give us like a cash rebate or something like that."
