Small steps

From the Ticketmaster site for an upcoming Eagles concert at Greensboro Coliseum:
Additional Information:

This is a no-fee event! The price you see is the price you pay. NO convenience fee. NO order processing fee. NO delivery fee if you choose to print tickets at home.

Not sure, but i imagine that the Coliseum is a taxpayer financed venue. As is the Durham Performing Arts Center. Ticketmaster gets a healthy contract fee to sell tickets for shows and events at these venues. There's no reason to tack on an additional 25% or so in "user fees," when it's our money that's making ticketmaster's profits possible in the first place. Let's hope this is a step in the right direction.
