Bought Iron Maiden tickets a few days ago for Vancouver, having just got KISS and Bob Seger tickets recently. For Maiden, the only ticket delivery option available was via mobile phone. The concert is September 3 so it said the ticket will be available the day before. All others previously, had the choice of mailing a regular ticket or download/print your own ticket.
I've never had a ticket via my cell phone before and I thought what if a person doesn't own a cell phone? I guess this is a way to help prevent scalping. I wonder if this is the way things are going to be going forward?
I like the paperless format...I'm NOT necessarily a fan of being forced to install the Ticketmaster app, but oh well.
Speaking of Iron Maiden...I idiotically ordered tickets for the wrong venue last week, and Maiden don't allow re-sales, so I'm stuck with them.
