If you bought tickets to see Kelly Clarkson, you're out $3.75 in Ticketmaster fees. The sad thing is, Ticketmaster has earned such a reputation for evil, my initial reaction wasn't, "How unfair!" but rather, "Only $3.75?" Though if you paid extra for the priviledge of printing your own tickets (that fee always baffles me), you're out that fee, too.

To be fair, I recently bought tickets through one of Ticketmaster's indie competitors, and while the fee was more reasonable, I was disappointed to note that their fee, also, was non-refundable in the event of cancellation. Perhaps it's not the ticketing agent's fault the concert was cancelled, but it seems like this is the sort of regrettable situation in which a company would like to foster goodwill, not sour people on the concert experience in general.
