Even The Boss Can’t Cross TM Without Being Hung Out to Dry Publicly!

It seems that there may be a degree of retaliation in the recent Open Public Records Act request that has exposed Bruce Springsteen management as the reason fans could not get any good seats and it had nothing to do with Ticketmaster, TicketsNow, or scalpers.

Of the 20,000 seats at the Izod Centre in New Jersey 12% of the seats were “held aside friends and family of Springsteen and his band, plus radio-station executives and the like; 812 were held by the New Jersey Sports and Exhibition Authority.” Under New Jersey law only 5% are allowed to be set aside. Less than 10% of the best seats were actually available to the public when sales opened!
