Dispatch Says No To Scalpers

While tickets for Dispatch’s reunion tour have not even gone on sale yet, some ticket re-sellers are already advertising seats at inflated prices. In response the group has issued a statement regarding ticket sales and the secondary market. The band indicates:

Dispatch is sad and disappointed to see so many third-party sites selling false inventory to shows on the DISPATCH 2011 tour, lying to the band’s fans about ticket inventory that they absolutely do not have. Here are a few notes from our management on how to avoid playing into their scam.

· NO tickets are on sale for shows to DISPATCH 2011 dates until January 21st, when the Dispatch Mailing List Presale and American Express Cardmember Presale begin. Anyone or any website that tells you they have tickets is fraudulent.

· Ticketmaster and authorized Ticketmaster box offices are the ONLY places to get legitimate tickets.

· All other websites are secondary-market scalpers. Any tickets purchased via these outlets cannot be guaranteed. As an example, a secondary ticketing website is offering exact seat locations to Dispatch at Red Rocks. These seat locations do not even exist for Dispatch’s show.

Dispatch has worked hard to keep ticket prices low – only $40.00 for the entire tour. PLEASE do not support these fraudulent companies by purchasing tickets via their websites.

Wow $40. That’s way cheaper than say $20.

“Ticketmaster and authorized Ticketmaster box offices are the ONLY places to get legitimate tickets.
· All other websites are secondary-market scalpers.” So’s Ticketmaster, via TicketsNow

Really?!? That’s what you do, issue a statement, way to combat those scalpers. PATHETIC

Whoever is buying tickets for this worse-than-DMB tripe should be re-programmed. Dispatch sucks a dead dog’s ding dong. Please someone try to take offense, try to justify paying these twerps money for their “music”....

The money they make from the show is actually going to charity. And what are you all so angry about that you spend your time writing anonymous posts that insult a band? If you don’t like them, not a big deal. But why are you going out of your way to insult them and their fans? Get a life. Get therapy.

I got your therapy right here 3 chumps singing in the same key, playing the same guitar riff = not worth charity $ Charity is only good for those who run the charity and steal from their cause
