Bruce Springsteen may have solved ticket scalping

Glory days.

The Boss has spoken.

Bruce Springsteen’s one-of-a-kind Broadway show, announced earlier this month, will be a series of gigs running from October to November in New York’s tiny Walter Kerr Theatre, which seats only around 900 people at a time. The performances go on sale online today and, in order to prevent scalpers from seizing any of the coveted tickets, Springsteen has set up a process to verify that buyers are indeed fans.

If you want to attend one of the shows, you had to pre-register before this week (sorry) and enter a lottery to receive a special code. Only a select number of people will actually get text messages with the codes today, which is the only way to get a ticket (sorry again).

Why such an arduous affair? It’s because ticket scalping—people buying tickets to live events en masse and then reselling them at much higher prices—has become a behemoth of a problem in the live entertainment, be it music concerts, sports games, or theatre shows like Hamilton . There is so much ticket scalping, especially via automated bots, that the US government has stepped in . Artists like Adele have attempted to help fight scalping. Springsteen, who partnered with Ticketmaster’s 10-month-old Verified Fan program to set up the ticketing for his Broadway performances, is the latest.

Yet there are drawbacks to Verified Fan, which Ticketmaster says has cut scalping more than 75% in trials. Here’s how it works, according to Ticketmaster vice president David Marcus:

You give your basic information, your name, email address, mobile phone number to Ticketmaster, and Ticketmaster applies a bunch of algorithms to that limited data set and it can determine if you’re likely to go to the show, or if you’re likely going to sell your ticket. Verified Fan is not intended to prevent or eliminate resell. What it’s intended to do is made the first distribution of tickets fairer.

That “bunch of algorithms” is far from perfect—it factors in details such as the number of concert tickets a buyer has purchased from Ticketmaster in the past. Springsteen fans in this case who have never gone to a Springsteen show before are rightfully angry about being disfavored.

“Springsteen on Broadway” premieres Oct. 3, and Springsteen will perform five shows a week for eight weeks.

Bruce Springsteen ~ The Ghost Of Tom Joad

Bruce Springsteen followed his muse on this haunting 1995 release. Perhaps that's why it barely made a dent in the marketplace, even while it thrilled the faithful who were willing to take another dark, Nebraska -like journey with him. It's abundantly clear that Springsteen had been soaking himself in the work of John Steinbeck and Woody Guthrie during the writing of The Ghost of Tom Joad, but their combined influence is found on more than just the title track. It's all over these windblown songs (including the haunting "Dry Lightning" and "the seminal "Youngstown") and their hard-scrabble protagonists. Not the Boss's biggest record, but certainly one of his best. --Michael Ruby

  • The Ghost Of Tom Joad

Bruce Springsteen

Men walkin' 'long the railroad tracks Goin' someplace there's no goin' back Highway patrol choppers comin' up over the ridge

Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge Shelter line stretchin' 'round the corner Welcome to the new world order Families sleepin' in their cars in the Southwest No home no job no peace no rest

The highway is alive tonight But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad

He pulls a prayer book out of his sleeping bag Preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag Waitin' for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last In a cardboard box 'neath the underpass Got a one-way ticket to the promised land You got a hole in your belly and gun in your hand Sleeping on a pillow of solid rock Bathin' in the city aqueduct

The highway is alive tonight Where it's headed everybody knows I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light Waitin' on the ghost of Tom Joad

Now Tom said Mom, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries Where there's a fight 'gainst the blood and hatred in the air Look for me Mom I'll be there Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a place to stand Or decent job or a helpin' hand Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free Look in their eyes Mom you'll see me

Well the highway is alive tonight But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light With the ghost of old Tom Joad
