Part of the problem with DTE is all the seat licenses they sell to rich people, comanies, etc. Most of the seats are sold before the season even starts, and they get first dibs on those tickets. So, that takes away the majority of good seats there. Makes it really tough to get good seats, unless the band gets some seats in their deal, and they then sell those to the Fan Club members.
Iron Maiden has gone ticketless for a few years now to take on the scalpers, and as long as you have the credit card you bought the ticket with, it works fine. Considering TicketBastard is in collusion with scalpers, they aren't going to try to find a fix, and they still own the industry. How the Feds ever let that happen is beyond me.
