I read this article:http://monolithmanagement.com/pre-sale-tickets and was astounded. I have heard of pay to play and selling tickets, but having a certain amount of tickets presold in order to do a show is something I never heard of. Basically the author is mentioning a scam where a venue requires a band to pre-sell a number of tickets, where the band gets a percentage. But, if the band doesn't sell the amount of tickets, they don't get to play on the bill. Sounds ludicrous to me. Has anyone ever dealt with this?
