You May Be Getting Free Concert Tickets After Lawsuit Settlement; Here’s Three Shows You Might Be Able To See
A settlement of a 13 year old class action lawsuit could mean free concert tickets for you. The details of which shows will be available haven't been finalized but you'll want to checkyour Ticketmaster account. Ticketmaster denies the allegations, but settled the suit for $45 million dollars.
Ticketmaster's parent company, Live Nation, has set up several webpages, but details have yet to be posted. If you bought concert tickets between 1999 and 2013, Ticketmaster suggests checking your personal online Ticketmaster account.
Here's the message on the settlement page:
You may have recently received an email regarding the Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster Class Action Settlement because you are a Class Member who may be entitled to Ticket Codes as part of the Settlement. Once Ticket Codes are made available to you in your Ticketmaster account, you may attempt to use your Ticket Codes to claim “free tickets” identified as available for redemption on this website. These “free tickets” are available on a first-come, first-served basis and may not be available for redemption if others have claimed them before you.
Class Members who made purchase transactions on www.ticketmaster.com between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013, should anticipate receiving, on or around June 18, 2016, at least one Ticket Code redeemable for two tickets for General Admission seating at designated concert events at Live Nation owned or operated venues, subject to availability and limitations. For a list of guidelines regarding using your Ticket Code(s), please visit the official Settlement Website, http://www.ticketfeelitigation.com/faq#Q18.
