Picture 3-1So my favorite place in London (England) for discount theatre tickets is TKTS half-price ticktes located in Leicester Square, it’s sort of in the park so you can’t miss it.

I discovered they list the available tickets on-line so that’s a bonus for next trip, no reason to rush down for tickets if there isn’t anything you like!

They are opening a second location in the Brent Cross Shopping Centre officially on June 29, 2008 but since I’m not there I can’t go check it out (that’s today!). I think they carry the same tickets at both locations.

So I saw this article on ticket scalping (I mean “brokers”) and was thinking that I never see brokers in Michigan like I do in other cities around the country. And it always makes me feel like the brokers are shifty, like you might get bad tickets or something, but then I saw this part of the article

Only five states — Michigan, North Carolina, Kentucky, Massachusetts and Rhode Island — limit brokering, according to the National Association of Ticket Brokers. Regulations vary. For example, in Rhode Island, the cap on the amount of the increase is $3, or 10 percent above face value, whichever is greater.

So that makes some sense to me now, you can’t do it in Michigan so if someone is doing it, it is shifty; and it’s legit in other states so it’s not shifty. We’ll, that make more sense to me now, it’s just something outside my normal experience of ticket buying. I’ll keep that in mind the next time I’m traveling and looking for tickets.

I feel bad for the kids who wanted to see the concert. But I thought $63 was a lot for the tickets before the brokers got them. It’s rare I pay that more than $60 for a concert; it’s only $20 (plus ticketmaster fees) for my concert tomorrow….
