Ticketmaster Helps a Fan's Super Dreams Come True
Ticketmaster, criticized in the past by some musical artists and their fans for unfair ticket prices, displayed a rare act of compassion for one unfortunate Bay Area resident. Earlier this week, the Oakland Tribune reported Santa Clara resident Sharon Osgood was duped out of Sunday’s Super Bowl game between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. According to the Tribune, Osgood wired nearly $6,000 to a Raven’s fan for tickets, only to receive an empty box with “Go Ravens! LOL!” written all over it. Soon after the Tribune released this initial story, they reported today Ticketmaster CEO Nathan Hubbard personally called the Osgood residence to inform them they will be receiving four free tickets to Sunday’s game in New Orleans. The 49ers front office also made a call to the season ticket holder with another free ticket offer. Altogether, Osgood received five free tickets for her and her family to cheer on their team after all. Empirical would like to commend Ticketmaster for reaching out and exhibiting a seldom seen act of kindness for a resident of our Pacific Northwest.
