TM Tickets Are Getting an Upgrade
« on: January 14, 2019, 08:34:31 PM »
Some of the Ticketmaster tickets being sent out for shows in 2019 don't look at all like the tickets we are used to.  There is a chip inside the ticket, tracking your every move.  My first question is what will be the implications for stubbing down into the pavilion for summer '19 Phish tour...uh oh...

Kinda sounds like flash seats here.
If you get a mobile ticket it prints out paper tickets from this machine; they use it for all pepsi center and dicks shows. Those paper tickets could be used to stubdown. The embedded id one sounds interesting.

Ugh.  That is so Big Brother.
You're just lucky I can't quote you in the WAP version of this site.

As long as digital tickets still exist you'll be able to throw em on a copy machine and stub people down.  Im just curious as to the decision on a tracking chip?
It's like BJ Galore over here!


I use records for that and don't have to justify it to my friends.
