It's one thing to ask for Â£35 or Â£65 for tickets for the Hammersmith shows in March, but for Ticketmaster to then add a booking fee of Â£4.75 ot Â£7.75 respectively is nothing short of outrageous!
Â£4.75 to Â£7.75 for printing a ticket and posting it out?!?!?!?
And why does it cost more to "handle" a Â£65 ticket?!?!?!?
I'm really disappointed that Peter allows his fans to be fleeced by Ticketmaster in this way. There are other options open to artists.
For example, Real World could handle ticket sales themselves (as they do with Womad).
Much as I would love to see the show, I refuse to be ripped of by Ticketmaster.

Unfortunately thats what you have to pay nowadays. Last minuite.com are alot better, but they arent handling this show.
There are two very good reasons why TicketMaster charge so much .
1) Because they can.
2) Because people pay it.
Given Peter's alternative approach to many things, I'm very surprised he hasn't tried to do something different.

Professor - The reason for the fees being that the needed 3D Glasses which will be handed out upon entry at the apollo are already included .
