Anyone who follows this blog can't help but notice that I go to a lot of concerts. Music is one of my favorite things to spend money on. But why, I ask, did the revolt against excessive "service charges" never take off? I buy nearly all my concert tickets online (is there another way?) and I routinely pay $10 per ticket in "fees." We don't go to a box office staffed by a human, so what, pray tell, are we paying for? God bless places like the Fillmore where on Sunday afternoons you can still secure fee-free tickets.
