Face-value ticket resale platform Twickets last week announced that it would launch Stateside this autumn. A webpage has already gone live at twicketsusa.com where fans can sign up for more information.
UK-based Twickets has formed alliances with various artists, of course, who have picked the platform as their approved place for fans who buy tickets, but who then genuinely can’t attend, to resell their tickets at face value. The US is the British firm’s second international market, having already launched in Australia.
Founder Richard Davies says: “When it comes to the secondary ticketing market, the US and the UK share similar challenges, so we’re THRILLED with this opportunity to now bring Twickets to the US, where I think most people have forgotten what it’s like to purchase a face-value ticket”.
He goes on: “Helping fans pay the fair price to see their favourite shows is what drives me and the team every day, and our launch in the US is a major step in ensuring that fans everywhere have access to face-value tickets to live music events by the artists they love”.[from http://ift.tt/2lvivLP]
