The First Wave Of Free Ticketmaster Voucher Events Is Now Closed

first_imgIn a move that’s sure to stoke the flames of many angry customers, Ticketmaster has announced the closure of the first wave of their free voucher program, which was a response their loss in a massive class action lawsuit. While fans were given many codes to use to claim free tickets at Live Nation-owned amphitheatres and clubs, it was extremely difficult to actually use the codes, as most of the in-demand shows were scooped up immediately, leaving behind a slew of undesirable shows as the only option for fans to use their codes with. The ticketing giants announced this morning that, even with the difficulties in finding shows that actually had availability in the first place, that $5 Million in ticket vouchers had been claimed by fans, and that they would be closing the program for now.While that news may be very frustrating to fans who were hoping to use their codes, concert-goers should fear not, as the massive ticketing company announced that, while all the currently eligible shows had been claimed, another $5 Million eligible shows will be made available at some point in the future, and fans will be able to use more of their codes. This will serve as no consolation to fans who were met with a series of error messages as they attempted to claim their tickets, and were unable to use any of the codes given to them.Ticketmaster released a brief statement last night explaining the situation:At this time, nearly $5m worth of eligible ticket vouchers have been redeemed and the first wave of eligible events has been closed. Given the overwhelming interest, Ticketmaster is adding another $5m worth of eligible tickets so more class members can redeem ticket vouchers. Please check back tomorrow for additional information. Hopefully Ticketmaster is taking this break to re-vamp their system, making it easier for fans to claim tickets using this confusing voucher method.Stay tuned for more news on this story as it becomes available.last_img
