FanSnap(R) Ticket Search Engine Helps Fans Find the Best Values in Lady Gaga Tickets(March 20, 2010)
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/10 -- FanSnap®, the leading live event ticket search engine, today announced that its search results, comprising dozens of ticket sites, have located hundreds and for some tour stops, thousands of available Lady Gaga tickets.
As show after show of the wildly successful 'Monster Ball' tour sells out at the box office, Lady Gaga fans, like many concert fans, are turning to the large and popular open market for event tickets, which offers fans entertainment choices that until recent years were unavailable to average fans, giving them the power to buy the exact tickets they desire, when and from whom, they choose.
"FanSnap ticket search is the solution to 'sold out,' providing fans looking for concert tickets tremendous entertainment choices and value, while saving them hours of searching," said FanSnap CEO Mike Janes. "FanSnap makes it very hard for fans to overpay, as they can identify at a glance the 'best value' tickets on the open market - those that are priced substantially below other available comparable tickets by 10%, 25%, even 50% less."
As one example, the latest FanSnap ticket search results have located a combined 6,000+ Lady Gaga tickets to the three shows at New York's Madison Square Garden on fifteen ticket sites, which likely represent thousands of sellers. The asking prices for comparable tickets can vary by as much as 50% or more. One recent search on www.fansnap.com found tickets with an asking price of $229 in the same row as tickets listed for $805. Market prices of course fluctuate up or down over time based on the balance of willing ticket buyers vs. willing ticket sellers.
