My buddy got us tickets saturday for AC/DC from ticketmaster.
He got really good seats,but told me the only option to get them was a paperless ticket.
I saw the email and it has the seat numbers and section.
It says for him to bring his id and credit card he used to buy the tickets and everyone in his party has to be there at the same time to get in.
It's not etickets or will call.
Has anybody else ever heard of this?

It's cheaper for TM (no postage or envelope), and they usually charge extra for the privilege, compared to hard tickets.

Requiring the ID used for purchase and letting everyone in at once makes it harder to scalp the tickets.

You can thank Mr. Tom Waits and his management for this development, in his quest to fight the scalpers. It worked fine for his ATL show at the Fox. The "ticket takers" swipe your cc and print out a receipt w/ your seat# on it. Just make sure nothing happens to the cc the tickets were purchased with!!

Like everything else it has its upsides and downsides. Biggest upside is they can't be scalped. But what if something comes up last minute, you can't go and you want to give your tix to someone else? Or if this person your going with will get there late for some reason and wants to meet you inside the venue?

And what about a souvenir ticket stub? Are they going to be a thing of the past?

That part really bums me out,but if it helps cut down on scalping i guess it alright.

What if you want to give someone tickets as a gift?

And what about the security of those credit card numbers?

I went to a Waits show a few years ago when they did this. Seemed pretty stupid to me.
