Phish Does It Again!!!!

Recommended Posts

"Ticketmaster Employees on Strike"

Oct 1, 2002

AP Newswire - Syracuse, New York

Over two-hundred Ticketmaster customer service employees went on strike

today as part of a petition to stop the band Phish from ever using the

ticket service again.

"Work is no longer work. It's become psychotherapy. I don't care if a

person has seen the band over two-hundred times since nineteen

ninety-one," explained Julie Tavners, a former customer service

representative.

Research does show that call volume has quadrupled since tickets for the

four scheduled Phish concerts went on sale, but Ticketmaster refused to

comment on the matter.

"They're the most obsessed fans I've ever come in contact with, and I've

sold tickets to Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel," explained Mike

Turrico, also on strike. "Customers were offering me some girl named

Molly for tickets, but I quickly assured them that I'm happily married."

This strike marks only the second in Ticketmaster's long and dominant

history in the concert tickets arena. The first occurred in New York

City in 1985 when the phone lines suddenly went down soon after Barbara

Streisand tickets became available to the general public.

"I was there back in eighty-five. This isn't as bad, but it's damn near

close," explained Turrico.

Phish will play Madison Square Garden on New Year's Eve, then head down

to Hampton, Virginia for a three night stand on January second, third,

and fourth.

:laugh: Phish & Barbara Streisand - what a couple of troublemakers!

BTW Kev never got tix, but I was talking to this guy (that I met last weekend in axis ha, ha) and he told me he could get me like 6 or 8 tix for face value if I wanted them. I think he may have been trying to impress me, but I'm going to see him Saturday so I'll find out and let you know - so far I've only promised 4 of them out.
