Ticketmaster Hearing Closing Arguments Quote Taylor Swift's "Karma" Lyric
Taylor Swift references are always appropriate.
The Senate Judiciary Committee met on Tuesday to discuss Swift's November presale ticket fiasco, which left millions of fans unable to buy tickets for her Eras tour.
Sen. Mike Lee quoted Swift's "Karma" in closing remarks to emphasise the hearing's importance.
"Unprecedented demand for Taylor Swift tickets" led to "three times the amount of bot traffic than we had ever experienced" at Ticketmaster.
Berchtold claimed Ticketmaster doesn't set ticket prices or fees.
Berchtold said the ticketing industry wants lawmakers to address ticket scalping and fraud.
Sen. John Kennedy proposed non-transferable ticket legislation and fee caps for major artists like Swift.
