Update, 7:10 a.m., 6-23-2016: The Phoenix concerts have re-appeared, but all of the voucher tickets are sold out. We will leave this post up so that concertgoers can read and weep at the missed opportunity.
Tired of paying for concert tickets? If you've bought tickets via Ticketmaster.com between 1999 and 2013, you might not have to part with your hard-earned cash this summer.
As part of the settlement from a class-action lawsuit (Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster) regarding failure to disclose fees to consumers, Ticketmaster has agreed to make $10 million worth of tickets available to everyone affected. Discounts of $2.25 are also available, as are $5 shipping vouchers.
Here's how to access your vouchers:
- Log into your account at www.ticketmaster.com.
- Click on the "My Account" tab on the right side of the page.
- Find the "My Vouchers" link on the left side of the page. Alternatively, click here.
- Access the full list of eligible shows here.
From there, it's just a matter of finding a show you'd like to attend, and hoping there are still some voucher tickets remaining. Ticketmaster released the list of eligible shows on Wednesday, and since the company is allowing vouchers for a limited number of tickets at each show, many are already sold out. New Times attempted to use a voucher to buy tickets to three concerts — Daryl Hall & John Oates, G-Eazy & Logic, and Brantley Gilbert, and could only successfully use the voucher for the G-Eazy show. So your mileage may vary.
Here are the local concerts listed as part of the settlement:

Saturday, July 9 - Darius Rucker: The Good For A Good Time Tour - Ak-Chin Pavilion - 7 p.m.
