Legislation for fair event ticketing takes center stage

Together with

The Future. Fan discontent around not being able to score tickets to The Eras Tour has spurred legislation in states all across the country. Until federal legislation passes, there may be an uptick in fans trying to get concert tickets specifically in states that have passed these ticketing reform laws in order to get the best deals.

Next year, getting a ticket to an in-demand concert may be a lot easier… or at least less frustrating.

  • Maryland and Arizona passed legislation that outlaws speculative tickets sales — people listing tickets on resale sites (typically at a steep increase) even though they don’t have them yet.
  • Colorado’s House of Representatives approved a law that requires more price transparency for tickets and would make resale sites that try to pass as the sites of actual venues illegal.

On the federal front, the Fans First Act (which tackles issues like speculative ticketing price transparency and the use of bots) has already passed in the House and is waiting for a vote in the Senate.

Yesterday, over 250 artists — including Billie Eilish and Green Day — signed a letter of support for the legislation.
