Nothing about it makes me sick.  Artists are stupid for setting their prices so low.

 

From the article:

 

"The biggest issue why fans can't get tickets is not bots or even because there are professional scalpers involved," Dean Budnick, coauthor of Ticket Masters: The Rise of the Concert Industry and How the Public Got Scalped, told me. "There are just so many amateurs who can buy from anywhere in the world and flip them on StubHub a few minutes later."

 

 

But look, for the vast majority of shows, you can get tickets.  It's only the super-hot ones you hear about.  For every sell-out there are 30 shows that don't sell out.
