Those who couldn't were dismayed to see numerous tickets for the in-demand shows showing up nearly immediately on ticket-reselling site StubHub at wildly inflated prices - despite Ticketmaster instituting its Verified Fan program meant to shut down scalpers.

"Tickets ... went on sale Wednesday morning, but within minutes, the coveted seats were all snapped up, and being resold on Stubhub at exorbitant prices", noted the New York Daily News.

If you didn't land tickets to Springsteen on Broadway during the august 30 on-sale, don't fret. Ticketmaster calls it Verified Fan.

Courtesy of Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen will be spending a lot more time on the Broadway stage then he originally announced. Verified Fan tech had to be modified somewhat for Broadway, where small venues (less than 1,000 for "Springsteen on Broadway") lead to sky-high demand - and elevated ticket prices - for the hottest shows.

The Gators now have 10 players suspended for their opener against the Michigan Wolverines , making a tough task even tougher. Desir-Jones saw playing time in two games last season on the offensive line, but switched to defensive line this season.


When reached by Variety for comment, a rep for Ticketmaster referred to a statement addressing the issue of "speculative seating". Registering does not guarantee you will receive a code to purchase tickets.

Tickets for the added shows go on sale next Thursday, but you have to register in advance for a chance to buy them.

Tickets for the new dates will go on sale September 7. "It forces real fans to compete against resellers who are scrambling to find tickets to fulfill the speculations they made".
