Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) responded to President Joe Biden’s calls for fairness and transparency in ticketing fees by introducing the Junk Fee Prevention Act on Wednesday (March 22). While the proposed legislation goes beyond live music, it would transform how concert tickets are sold and attempts to reduce fees that inflate tickets’ face values.

“Concealed surprise fees — nickel and diming Americans to distraction — must be stopped,” Blumenthal said.


·The Junk Fee Prevention Act has been introduced to Senate by two Democrats responding to President Biden’s call for fee transparency.

·This could change the way concert tickets are sold by reducing added fees that inflate ticket prices.

·This legislation would disincentivize junk fees by requiring companies to “clearly and conspicuously” display the total price of a ticket with all fees included.

·Violators would be punished by the FTC or regionally by the state attorney general.
