Attention Fans First Members in New Jersey – both the state Senate and Assembly are considering pro-scalper legislation.
S-875 and A-2258 would negatively affect New Jersey fans by banning artists like Bruce Springsteen, Eric Church and John Mayer from using fan-friendly ticketing methods, like paperless ticketing and will-call-only. Paperless and will-call ticketing make it much harder for scalpers to scoop up and resell tickets at sky-high prices. When artists use these methods, it gives fans a chance to buy a good seat at the face-value price. Banning these methods would only help scalpers continue to charge fans outrageous prices.
Your action is needed! Please contact members of the NJ Senate Commerce Committee and tell them that:
- You’re sick of scalpers cutting in line at on-sales and your favorite artists and teams should be able to help you get tickets!
- Prices on some resale sites can be astronomical! You want to be able to have a better chance at getting face-value tickets so you can go to more shows and see your favorite acts without getting deceived
- Less than .01% of all tickets are sold this way, so paper options still exist for fans.
