First, Pearl Jam. Now, the Warfield and Regency Ballroom.
The two San Francisco music and entertainment venues are ditching Ticketmaster for its own ticket-operating system, according to the San Francisco Examiner. They'll begin using axs Ticketing on Sunday, according to the newspaper.
The venues are owned by AEG, the same owner of axs Ticketing. AEG, it should be noted, shares the same owners as Clarity Media, which owns the San Francisco Examiner. Denver oil billionaire Philip Anschutz is the principal owner of the entire conglomerate.
The new ticketing system will have less convenience fees, and no fee for printing tickets at home, according to the newspaper.
