Ticket Scalping Legal 7/1/2007

For those of you who didn't hear, the sale of a ticket at over the face value will become legal in Minnesota starting 7/1/2007. It will be very interesting to see what effect the change in the law will have on the Minnesota Wild and the Xcel Energy Center Ticket market. My hunch is that other than the opening of a few store front ticket operations, the consumer won't notice the change in law. The Internet has allowed people the opportunity to sell tickets at over face value to consumers in the Minnesota for a long time. I am happy that Minnesota finally got with the times and recognized that tickets are no different of a commodity than anything else and that the market should dictate what they are sold for, not the government.

American Idols Live Tickets

American Idols Live is coming to the Xcel Energy Center 8/4/2007 at 7:30. In years past, that tour has been an extremely tight ticket. This year, it appears as though seats to this concert will be much easier to come by. As of today, there are still plenty of tickets available through Ticketmaster and it possible to buy great main floor and lower level tickets for prices that are barely over the ticket face value. So, if you dig American Idols Live on TV, you have an affordable opportunity to see all of you favorites at the acoustically superior Xcel Energy Center on 8/4/2007.

Xcel Energy Center is #1
