Default And this is why you don't buy $500 tickets!

Ya see! I will never pay more then face value for a ticket! I think it is awful if you buy a $500 ticket from an official website and that show is canceled you only get the face value price back! I fell so sorry for those people that paid a scalpers ticket price for Bristow or Camden! What is the world coming too!

The fan club will give you a full refund..and scalpers usually will too.

I have bought from a scalper, I did for the Memphis show in 2003 and it was cancelled, and I received a full refund...and I would never buy from a scalper who will not....some scalpers will say you can receive equal value tickets for another show OR face value of the tickets...but there are some who will give full refunds

I've heard from a few friends that brokers are giving full refunds, I'm sure it depends on the broker and if this involves a lot of shows I'm not sure they'll keep doing it.

The envelope from the broker I got tickets from says something like "no refunds for any reason whatsoever including postponement, cancellation, weather or acts of terror." The last one really caught my eye.

I wondered about this. It would suck paying a scalper's price & then being out the money, plus having to deal with the disappointment of cancellation.

~~~I had broker tickets for St Louis and Kansas City during the TISL tour. Both shows were cancelled and I received a full refund. That would not have happened if the concert was rescheduled. It definitely depends on the ticket broker.

Before buying from a broker always check their policy, and print it out...has worked for me

I purchased from a broker, and the policy on their web site said no refunds. When I called to order I asked "what if the show is canceled?" and the rep said I would get a refund. But then when the tickets arrived, the envelope again had the policy clearly stated: "no refunds due to cancellation" etc. Luckily my show wasn't canceled, but if it had been, I would certainly have asked for a refund based on my conversation with the rep.
