Although we would all love to avoid TicketMaster, unfortunately they have a monopoly in this country — behold, my friends, the American Dream! Anyway, if you can’t find a patch, at least find a workaround: my workaround would be: a) Don’t buy tickets online through Ticketmaster.CA or Ticketmaster.COM; b) Pay cash when you buy Ticketmaster tickets in person at the Ticketmaster outlet; c) Give fake credentials if the ticket clerk asks you for them (although I can’t see why they would).
I’m aware that this behaviour would probably tip off the authorities in the police state we call the U.S.A., since it probably matches some kind of Terrorist Profile generated by the Abteilung der Faterland-Sicherheit. If that isn’t ironic…
This is the case if you enter your email address on their site just to check the price of the ticket, even if you don't buy anything.
Good Americans when they die go to Paris.
