A new bill proposing extensive new regulations regarding tickets in the U.S. has been proposed, as a new version of the so-called BOSS Act was announced on Thursday afternoon . U.S. Reps Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ) and Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) reintroduced the act, which has been submitted in various forms failed to gain passage since its initial submission in 2009. The house legislation is also co-sponsored by Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ).
Principally, the act pushes for far greater transparency and consumer rights related to the purchase of event tickets. Its announcement was no doubt timed to follow close behind this week’s FTC Workshop on online ticket sales .
“This essential bill guarantees consumers protection and transparency when purchasing tickets to their favorite live events,” said Sen. Blumenthal in a release announcing the BOSS Act. “Hidden fees and other tactics used widely to gouge fans should not be a part of the concert experience. With the passage of this bill, we can remove the veil around the ticket-buying process, allowing hard-working Americans the opportunity to simply enjoy the show.”
The bill is likely to see a blistering lobby looking to strike down many of its consumer protection benefits dealing with the primary market from venue owners, promoters, and the Live Nation/Ticketmaster giant at the industry’s core. Rep. Pascrell has been an outspoken critic of LN/TM, opposing the Obama administration’s approval of the merger, and calling for it to be broken up as a monopoly in an op-ed last year . More recently, he wrote a letter to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions calling for an “investigation of continued market corruption” by Ticketmaster .
Sen. Blumenthal has also been critical in public comments of Ticketmaster, composing an open letter with Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) to Live Nation Entertainment CEO Michael Rapino questioning the company’s operations and tactics in the industry following last summer’s bombshell CBC/Toronto Star reporting on the company’s resale practices as well as potentially deceptive holdback and dynamic pricing strategies .
In its current form, the BOSS Act has the following provisions:
BOSS Act Primary Marketplace Provisions
Requirements for all-in pricing to ensure ticket sellers disclose all ancillary charges before customers select a ticket for purchase.
Transparency in use of holdbacks.
Restrictions on preventing reselling or instituting a price floor on tickets.
Disclosure of refund policies.
BOSS Act Secondary Marketplace Provisions
Transparency in the sale of speculative tickets.
Disclosure to purchasers when the secondary seller is the primary ticket seller, venue, team, or artist associated with the event.
Requirements for all-in pricing to ensure ticket sellers disclose all ancillary charges in price quotes and advertisements before customers select a ticket for purchase.
Prohibitions on employees of venues, primary ticket sellers, teams, artists, online resale marketplaces, or box offices involved in hosting, promoting, performing in, or selling tickets to knowingly resell tickets at a higher price.
Restrictions on selling a ticket for the same seat to more than one person at the same time.
“The BOSS Act is the kind of law that will help protect competition in the resale marketplace so that consumers have more than one expensive and overbearing source from which to shop for or resell their tickets. Plus, it promotes transparency which is vital to a consumer-friendly ticket industry and will generally help make the experience less confusing and frustrating for fans,” said Gary Adler, Executive Director and Counsel for the National Association of Ticket Brokers (NATB).
Statements of support for the act were also provided by officials from the Sports Fans Coalition, the Consumer Federation of America, and the National Consumers League.

Derren Brown: Secret, a show of mixed magic and mind reading, will debut on Broadway this fall following a sold-out run at the Atlantic Theater Company.
Brown, the UK Netflix and YouTube star, performs concerts showing his expertise in mind reading, persuasion, and psychological illusion. His show, Secret , is described as a “spellbinding experience” which makes audiences “take a closer look at the stories and beliefs that guide our lives,” a press release notes.
“Well, who wouldn’t?” Brown told The New York Times when asked why he wanted to bring the show to Broadway. “What an amazing chance.”
The production originally premiered in 2017, where Brown played to sold-out crowds at the Atlantic Theater Company. He was awarded the 2018 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience, as well as two Olivier Awards for the highly-acclaimed sold-out runs in the West End.
Andrew O’Connor and Andy Nyman will direct the show with writing by Nyman, O’Connor, and Brown.
Previews will begin at the Cort Theater on September 6 and will open on September 15. The show will run for a strictly limited time – four months -through January 4, 2020. Tickets will be available to the public on June 28.

WWE’s Stomping Grounds in Tacoma is less than two weeks away, but the event is not a hot commodity.
There are five matches, including the Universal Champion between Seth Rollins and Baron Corbin, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston v. Dolph Ziggler for a Steel Cage Match, Raw Women’s Champion between Becky Lynch and Lacey Evans, Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley v. Alexa Bliss, and Roman Reigns v. Drew McIntyre.
A screenshot of Ticketmaster’s interactive map of the event shows that Stomping Grounds is not selling well. The blue dots represent the tickets that were sold so far:
WWE is trying to figure out why fans are not interested in the event. In a poll on their website, they listed each match and are asking fans if they are extremely interested, very interested, somewhat interested, a little bit interested, or not interested at all. There is also a place to leave a note to explain their answer.
WrestlingNews believes that the lack of sales stems from “rematches and stale feuds.”
Fans are expressing their opinions about the matches on Twitter:
Stomping Grounds, the pay-per-view event, is set to take place on June 23 at the Tacoma Dome.

The popular Chicago ticket scalper known as “Tommy’s Tickets” has been jailed following multiple accounts of deceptive broker practices, taking between $600 and $31,000 from buyers.
Tommy Ryan, who was arrest and jailed in St. John’s County, Florida on an Illinois warrant, is currently fighting an extradition to Illinois. Prosecutors of Will County are asking Governor JB Pritzker for a “governors warrant” to bring him back to the state and face three felony counts of “continuing a financial crimes enterprise,” ABC Chicago reports. Ryan reportedly deceived three people over an eighteen month period, two of Cook County.
One victim, Heather Underwood, said that she quick-paid Ryan but was only left with “all these broken promises.” She lost $400 after paying Ryan for J. Cole concert tickets, but earlier this week, Ryan repaid her via electronic payment. Underwood wasn’t alone; the I-Team received five other claims after hearing Underwood’s report. Customers claimed they paid Ryan for tickets to plays, concerts, and sporting events but were never delivered tickets.
ABC reported earlier this year that Ryan was scamming potential customers. Crystal Smith, a resident of Lakeview, paid Ryan nearly $800 through QuickPay for tickets of A Christmas Carol at The Goodman Theatre.
“He said ‘Don’t worry, you know I got you. I’m Tommy Tickets, baby,'” she said, noting that he was going to meet her at her work, but never showed. “It was very disappointing and I kept calling him, texting him. He wasn’t answering.”
Another customer, Phyllis Bucaro, filed a report after she paid Ryan almost $4,000 for 16 Cubs tickets which she never received, calling the experience “emotional,” as she lost so much money.
Ryan is slated to face a judge in Will County if he is extradited from Florida.

Following this year’s chaotic UEFA Champions League and Europa Final – which caused fans travel difficulties and the ticket process was described as “measly allocation from the UEFA” – the organization announced that Euro 2020 will proceed with a “fan first” ticket strategy. Already, over 300,000 fans submitted applications from 109 different countries during the first hour on sale.
As a part of the new ticketing strategy, almost 2.5 million tickets will be available solely for fans of the participating teams and the general public – this number exceeds the total number of tickets that were available for the UEFA EURO 2016. More than 80 percent of the tickets will go to fans with 1 million available for €50 or less for the 44 matches. Additionally, a total of 40,000 tickets under €100 will be available for the semi-finals and finals in London.
It was announced last month that ticket sales would be separated into three phases. The first phase, which kicked-off on June 12, will run through July 12 and 1.5 million tickets will be up-for-grabs. During this period, fans can apply at any time and will still have a chance of being chosen. Those who did not receive tickets they applied for will be notified when new tickets are available. The second phase will take place in December after the final draw, and the last phase will begin in April 2020 after the final four teams of the playoffs have been chosen.
The 44 matches will take place in 12 different cities, which have been divided into two clusters, reflecting the average income of residents. The first cluster A, starting with tickets for €50, includes Amsterdam, Bilbao, Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome, and Saint Petersburg. Cluster B, which is priced starting at €30 is made up of Baku, Bucharest, and Budapest, the UEFA said , noting that consequently, tickets for the quarter-final in Baku will be significalntly less than games in Munich, Rome, and Saint Petersburg.
Euro 2020 will run from June 12 to July 12, 2020. Fans can purchase sign up to purchase tickets via Euro2020.com/tickets .

Lansing, Michigan’s second annual Three Stacks Festival, which was set to feature artists like The Breeders, Betty Who, Talib Kweli, and Touche Amore, has been cancelled amid low ticket sales.
The event, which was supposed to take place on June 22, was also set to feature acts like P.O.S., The Sidekicks, Retirement Party, and Microwave, among others.
“Due to a number of factors, we feel that we’re unable to deliver artists and fans an experience we’d be proud of, and for that reason, we have chosen not to move forward with the event,” organizers of Fusion Shows said on the festival’s website .
Nate Dorough, president and co-founder of Fusion Shows, said that ticket sales were very low and it didn’t make “financial or artistic sense” to proceed with the festival.
“We’re bummed that this event didn’t survive, but that happens in this business,” he said in a statement. “The City of Lansing and all the businesses in REO Town were wonderful to work with, and we’re bummed we couldn’t deliver an event for them.”
Organizers apologized to all artists and fans, but still encouraged concertgoers to visit REO Town, noting that “there’s a lot going on here, regardless of our inability to make this event stick.”
“We just want to say that we’re sorry,” a Facebook post from the festival read. “To the artists, to our sponsors, staff, and volunteers, and most importantly, to REO Town. We wanted to deliver something great to you on a yearly basis, but it wasn’t to be. We feel like we’ve let our neighborhood down, and that’s a heartbreak that’s gonna take some time to recover from. ”
Ticketholders will be refunded at point of purchase while TicketWeb purchases will be automatically refunded in a week.
While organizers were not able to hold the Three Stacks Festival, a few of the artists originally slated to perfom at the festival will now take the stage for a club show on the same day at the Crofoot in Pontiac. Touche Amore, Microwave, P.O.S., The Sidekicks, and Retirement party will take the stage at the new show. Organizers said that while they were unable to reschedule anyone else on such short notice, they “hope to work with everyone again in the near future.”
