Streisand concert tix nixed

1,000 ducets purchased using false credit info

More than 1,000 tickets to Barbra Streisand’s national concert tour that were fraudulently purchased from Ticketmaster using stolen credit card information have been invalidated.

The tickets have turned up for sale on various Internet resale sites. Tour’s national promoter, Michael Cohl; Streisand’s manager, Martin Erlichman; and Ticketmaster cautioned consumers Tuesday that these now-invalidated tickets purchased from unauthorized resellers will not allow the ticketholder into the venue on the night of the show.

“With the Streisand tour, the unusually high number of incidents of fraud has prompted us to issue this specific warning,” said Sean Moriarty, president and chief operating officer at Ticketmaster.

Company is working with law enforcement agencies to identify the source of the fraud.

“The ‘buyer beware’ adage applies here more than ever,” Erlichman said.
