Irene’s Coming to Visit

By Amy | August 26th, 2011

Stories like this one and this one are cropping up around the internet on local websites regarding events that are being cancelled due to Hurricane Irene’s impending arrival on the East Coast. If you are a ticket holder to an event over the next week in the East Coast, be SURE to check your venue’s website to make sure the event is still going on before you head out! Even if the storm’s already passed, if there’s a chance it was in an area that sustained any damage, it’s still a good idea to check with your venue before making an evening of a concert or theater event.

(On that note, everyone stay safe and dry!)

Will a license really help?

By Amy | August 23rd, 2011

Requiring street-side ticket sellers to purchase an annual license is a good start to curbing ticket fraud, but how much will it really work? Will the average parent looking for Miley Cyrus tickets be able to tell a fake license from a real one? And how long does it take for someone standing on a street corner to sell a couple tickets then flee?

As you’d probably guess, we’re not fans of the street-side seller, because you never know what you’re getting, and if for any reason your transaction goes sour, good luck ever finding that person again. At Coast to Coast, we take our reputation seriously, because we’re not here just for a couple sales. A large percentage of our business comes from repeat customers, and that wouldn’t be the case unless we followed through on our guarantees and provided great tickets at great prices!
