Congress to Hold Hearing After Ticketmaster-Taylor Swift Fiasco

 

Quote

In the wake of the major problems surrounding Ticketmaster’s management of Taylor Swift tour ticket sales last week, a U.S. Senate antitrust panel will hold a hearing on the lack of competition in the industry, Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Mike Lee (R-UT) announced Tuesday. The hearing comes after reports of major service failures and delays on Ticketmaster’s website that left fans unable to purchase concert tickets. 
 

The hearing date and witnesses will be announced at a later date; Klobuchar announced in a statement last week that a hearing was in the works.

 

“Last week, the competition problem in ticketing markets was made painfully obvious when Ticketmaster’s website failed hundreds of thousands of fans hoping to purchase concert tickets. The high fees, site disruptions and cancellations that customers experienced shows how Ticketmaster’s dominant market position means the company does not face any pressure to continually innovate and improve,” said Klobuchar. “That’s why we will hold a hearing on how consolidation in the live entertainment and ticketing industry harms customers and artists alike. When there is no competition to incentivize better services and fair prices, we all suffer the consequences.”

No hits -> Anti-Hero

Local -> #1 all over the world

Only stans listen to her -> 18M unique listeners, 14M trying to get tickets

No impact -> the Ticketmaster situation

 

It really is crazy how she is clocking each and every drag that's been thrown at her in the last few years :deadbanana4:

Don’t forget people always said she was #2 to Drake and Adele. :dies:  (Even though she’d been outselling Drake and outstreaming Adele even long before folklore by a wide margin. Not to even mention her huge tours that neither of them could ever accomplish.)

 

I’m sorry but no matter how much they whine and say her success does not make her a legend, it damn sure helps :ahh: 

 

I don’t know a single artist in history -that was as dominant as she is for as long as she has been- who didn’t go down in history as legend.
