Why Is Getting Concert Tickets So Hard?

Posted: Updated:
Old City -

Have you ever wondered why it's so hard to get tickets to see your favorite singer in concert?

That's all because a shocking amount of tickets are already reserved for VIP's!

According to the fans rights group  called  the Fan Freedom Project, by the time the tickets go on sale, up to 92% of them are already earmarked-for someone else.

Take Justin Bieber for example- only 8% of his concert tickets were sold to his fans.

At a recent Maroon 5 concert, 64% of tickets were also reserved for VIP's.

Stubhub executives say ticket allocation is very secretive.
