I like the way the line runs up the back of the stocking

It's not that big of a deal. It slows down getting in just a bit, but the line is shorter because the entrance is only for the good seats, so it takes the same amount of time as it normally would.
I'm pretty sure if anything happens to your credit card you can contact them and resolve it. If they don't, there will be a clear record that they didn't print out your tickets and I would assume if they fucked up that bad they would at least refund your money.

Your dad must surely have a debit card, right? So then, as long as he has enough in the bank, couldn't he just use that?

I have a debit card and I'm 17, but I seriously am sorry for this situation. Have you called ticketmaster to try and find a way around this? What about your 2 friends, do they have cards?

Not true. The ones hurt by it are the ones who couldn't get tickets by normal means because the scalpers already bought them, and can't afford or won't pay the inflated prices.

Is scalping illegal for concerts in the US? It isn't here, only for Premier League football matches.

For me it should be illegal everywhere.

Back to the original story...

This is a serious fuck-up. Sorry, but what the fuck? I totally feel the pain with not being able to get tickets, and the wasted IMFC membership etc, but I'm not sure you'll ever be able to explain to me adequately why your Dad doesn't have a debit card... lol

By the way, despite above statements, I am totally against FORCED paperless ticketing because I too collect my tickets. We have paperless ticketing on all by the smallest shows here, but it's optional and you pay lower fees if you choose it.

I'm even pissed at the High Voltage Festival in London this year who aren't producing tickets at all and entry will be with a coded wristband they will scan at the gate. Sorry, but I want my ticket.

It's legal, but not on venue property. Paperless is a great system, but occasionally things like this happen.
