Hammerstein Ballroom Changes Ticketing Process
After some surprisingly quick sell outs for popular concerts, the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City has decided to change its ticket policies. Instead of having a system where some ticket brokers can get tickets before they go on-sale to the general public, now all ticket sales will be handled by a scalping agency.
A spokesman for Encore Tickets said, ‘This is great for the consumer. The Ticketmaster middleman is eliminated allowing us to pass the savings onto…well no one actually, but it’s still great.’
