The secondary market comes in several flavors, including authorized outlets such as Ticketmaster’s TM+ and online services like StubHub and Viagogo as well as brick-and-mortar ticket agencies. Other methods include buying tickets through online services such as craigslist or purchasing from one of those guys you see hanging outside venues on show nights.

But even though most fans abhor paying more than box office price for tickets, there’s always that one show or sporting event you just have to see – and you’re willing to pay whatever it takes to make it happen.
