As Beyonce Renaissance Tour Tickets Roll Out Senate Judiciary Committee Has Ominous Warning For Ticketmaster

As the primary tickets for Beyoncé‘s eagerly anticipated Renaissance world tour begin to roll out, the Senate Judiciary Committee issued a strong warning to Ticketmaster: “we’re watching.” The tweet from the Democrat members of the committee issued on Thursday afternoon (Feb. 2) included a clip from a CNN report concerning the Beyhive maintaining a detailed eye on the ticketing large within the wake of the disastrous roll-out of tickets for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour.

The tweet got here simply hours earlier than NPR reported that the preliminary roll-out of Renaissance tour tickets within the UK on Thursday morning had already led to concern from superfans that they could not get to see the present. With pre-sales starting in England, NPR spoke to a number of followers who mentioned {that a} mixture of excessive costs — as much as a reported $2,400 for some seats — and a reported snag within the ticketing system that knocked it offline quarter-hour earlier than gross sales began has already led to some frustration within the Beyhive.

“Because this is a Beyonce solo show, and it’s her first one in seven years, the demand is going to be really, really high,” BBC music correspondent Mark Savage informed NPR, including that along with reportedly taking place for a interval, Ticketmaster’s system was “inaccessible for a lot of fans until all of the tickets were gone.”

At press time a spokesperson for Ticketmaster had not returned a request for touch upon the Judiciary Committee tweet or the NPR report.

Ticketmaster’s president/CFO Joe Berchtold appeared earlier than the Senate Judiciary Committee final week to defend the company over the high-profile Swift ticketing mess, with witnesses calling for drastic motion to interrupt up what they declare is a monopoly. Ticketmaster issued a formal apology to Swift and her followers after the chaotic ticket sale course of for the 2023 Eras tour, during which the system crashed shortly after launch as 14 million followers and billions of bots flooded the positioning through the presale, inflicting service disruptions.

Tickets for the U.S. Beyoncé dates are slated to go on sale on Monday (Feb. 6) after Bey not too long ago added more dates at seven North American stadiums resulting from excessive demand. Second exhibits have been tacked on in Toronto on July 9, Chicago on July 23, East Rutherford on July 30, Washington, DC on August 6, Atlanta on August 12, Los Angeles on September 3 and Houston on September 24.

According to a press launch from Live Nation, fan demand for Renaissance seats has already exceeded the variety of accessible tickets by greater than 800% primarily based on present registration numbers. However, even with these added dates, “it is still expected that the majority of interested fans will not be able to get tickets because demand drastically exceeds supply.”
