Ticketmaster has announced that it will give customers complimentary digital music with every concert ticket purchased online. With every concert ticket purchased at Ticketmaster.com, the company is providing a 10-song digital music sampler, which showcases “a variety of emerging and established artists.” In addition, with the purchase of every ticket to any summer concert scheduled to take place between Memorial Day (May 28) and Labor Day (Sept 3), Ticketmaster customers will receive a free download of their choice from the iTunes Store.

I bought tickets to Mary Chapin Carpenter a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised that I got 2 free music downloads from iTunes. The funny thing was that she had to cancel her tour because of injury but I got to keep the free songs!

That seems about right . . . jack the price of tickets up and then slap on about 7 different service charges, processing fees and all kinds of taxes, but by all means . . . give me my free “one song” download. 

All is right with the World!

Yeah, I bought some tickets from Ticketmaster recently, they do all the things you mention, you’re right about that.  The song downloads suck by the way - they choose them for you, so I wouldn’t recommend you buy tickets from them JUST to get song downloads.  Just a word of caution to everyone.

...I don’t think anyone would buy tickets JUST to get a “free” song download…

MCWHAMMER, I don’t know what you were talking about, but when I bought Dave Matthews tickets two weeks ago, I was emailed two free song codes (one for each ticket) of my choice.

I have bought 6 tickets from ticketmaster in the past month or so.  I have paid almost $80 in service charges, convenience fees, or whatever BS name they decide to give it.  The $6 in “free” song downloads is hardly worth it, but if you’re going to buy the tickets anyway, it’s a nice bonus.
