If you were one of the millions of customers affected by Ticketmaster’s recent class action lawsuit, good news: The ticket giant has released an initial list of concerts eligible for free ticket vouchers. You can view it right here, but we’ll sum it up for you: It’s got a lot of older acts.
The list is constantly changing, but some of the bands that are or have been available include Darius Rucker, Weezer, Barenaked Ladies, Counting Crows, Steely Dan, Hall and Oates and the Beach Boys. So if you went to high school in the ’90s, this is definitely an exciting time for you!
But don’t get too pumped, because these concerts are scattered around the country. There are only a few shows in New York City, for example (and one of them is for something with Lenny Dykstra, who isn’t exactly known for creating awesome music). And as far as more modern and/or hip-hop-leaning acts, the pickings are pretty slim. Think: a Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa concert in West Palm Beach, Florida in July.
Pro tip: When you finally do settle on a concert that suits you, be sure to purchase the tickets that are labeled “General Admission,” which in many cases are the cheapest tickets. Don’t get cute and think you can fool Ticketmaster into providing you a VIP experience. It won’t work.
And hey, if you’re unable to find tickets to your liking, well, you can always try buying some and selling them online. Two words: Craigslist Indiana.
