Ticketmaster Class Action

Merchant Law Group LLP is launching class action litigation in Canada against Ticketmaster and its parent company, Live Nation, for allegedly misleading consumers on the prices for concerts, sports and other entertainment tickets.  The litigation will seek compensation for all Canadians who purchased tickets through Ticketmaster

The Competition Bureau of Canada has conducted an investigation which finds that LiveNation/Ticketmaster’s advertised prices are deceptive because consumers end up paying additional fees that are added later in the purchasing process.  The Bureau calls the practice “drip pricing” and states that due to these deceptive marketing practices, consumers pay higher prices than advertised, often due to Ticketmaster’s mandatory fees often inflating the price of a ticket by more than 20 percent, and, in some cases, by over 65 percent.

This Canadian class action is being launched on behalf of a proposed class consisting of all persons, corporations or other entities who purchased tickets subject to inflated prices, through Ticketmaster during the proposed “Class Period”.
