The Boss Rocks Verizon Center

Fans lucky enough to get a ticket see quite a show

Screaming, arm-flailing fans packed the Verizon Center Monday night to rock with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.  It was an electrifying show. 

But many fans who initially thought they'd be able to attend, will have to wait for the YouTube clips.

Last week TicketsNow, a reseller owned by Ticketmaster, told fans they had oversold the concert.  Some people ended up getting refunds or tickets to see the Boss at another venue.

That followed the problems others had with getting reasonably-priced seats through Ticketmaster and TicketsNow.

"I'm like, 'give me best available [seats],'" said concert-goer Susan Bridges of her first attempt to purchase tickets online. "And it ripped me to a $300 Web site."

Ticketmaster admitted to making a mistake by redirecting fans to the pricier Web site.

That didn't stop dozens of people from waiting in the ticket lottery line at Verizon Monday night in hopes of getting into the show.

Ticketmaster and TicketsNow have apologized to fans who had to miss out on Monday's concert.  The Web sites also apologized to the band for all of the ticket troubles.
