A Long Island man has filed a class action lawsuit against Live Nation, claiming that they falsely advertise ticket prices. From The NY Daily News:

David Himber has filed a class action lawsuit in which he estimates there are more than 60,000 concert-goers per year who are victimized by the practice of “advertising one price for a ticket and then charging a higher price when people arrive at the box office,” according to the suit.

Himber, of Hempstead, contends that the Live Nation web site stated the price for a ticket for a Rascal Flatts concert on Sept. 1 was $49.50. He went to the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater box office and was hit with a surcharge that upped the price to $55.50 per ticket. He forked over the money for three tickets despite the fee.

“The advertised price is available to nobody,” said Himber’s lawyer Abraham Kleinman.

The Daily News notes that this is not Himber’s first lawsuit in Long Island Federal Court (he’s filed three before) but his attorney says he’s not a “prolific litigator.”
