A few of you have asked us how you can attend Michael Jackson’s public memorial service so we thought we would pass along this information to our loyal readers.
The service is being held at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles this coming Tuesday, July 7th at 10am. It will be simulcast live across the street at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. Tickets will not go on sale to the public, rather a random lottery is being held on Staples Center’s website.
Please keep checking back with SaveFans! as there is a slight chance we will be able to make a limited number of tickets available.

Look who’s in the news AGAIN? Wouldn’t you know its the darkest dynamic duo in the world of tickets… Ticketmaster and TicketsNow.
In the latest episode of Ticket Wars the Illinois Attorney General office has uncovered a dastardly plot by Ticketmaster to defraud consumers. The evil geniuses at Ticketmaster and TicketsNow have been using websites masquerading as affiliates of venues, promoters, teams, and artists to trick the public into paying OVER face value for tickets thinking they were getting them FOR face value direct from the source. Over 100 websites have since been shut down and TicketsNow has been ordered to pay $50k for consumer fraud enforcement and education.

Damn and we thought they were bad with their TicketExchange deception…
It appears as if these guys hide behind more masks than Darth Vader and The Green Goblin combined. And just like in comic books our newest villain TicketMASKer just wont go away. Luckily we are here to serve and protect. So until next time fans… Same SaveFans! time, same SaveFans! blog.
