Chicago’s Metro ditches Ticketmaster


We just learned that tickets to ALL Metro and Smart Bar shows are only available through their websites, or the Metro Box Office. There will still be service fees for tickets bought online, though we believe they will be much reduced due to Metro handling all sales internally, and there is still never a service fee for tickets bought at the Box Office.

What does this mean? Ticketmaster has just lost one of the venues it’s had long-standing relations with. We asked Metro spokesperson Jenny Lizak for the reason behind the switch and she said, “Basically, we’re responding to customer requests and technological advances that have occurred over the years, and this change is going to help us simplify the buying process and bring customers an affordable ticketing solution.” [Chicagoist]
