Per the terms of a class action lawsuit settled by Ticketmaster, fans who purchased tickets between October 1999 and February 2013 from the giant (aka, just about anyone who bought a ticket for anything in that span) are entitled to vouchers and discount codes through 2020.

The discount codes are applicable anywhere, but the vouchers are good for specific events, announced periodically by the company – which put out a fresh batch on Wednesday.

Fan reaction to the concerts available for free to those who haven’t yet used up their vouchers was lukewarm, to say the least. Outlets throughout the country have picked up on the fan enthusiasm (or lack thereof) for much of the available fare, though it’s unsurprising that the company wouldn’t exactly be giving away its prime stock to satisfy a legal judgement.

CBS19.com in Texas put together a collection of humorous reactions to the tickets available on social media.

To be fair, I absolutely picked up a pair of tickets to an upcoming Matchbox 20/Counting Crows show, because my lovely wife will forever have a piece of her soul trapped in the mid-90s music scene from our early high school days. Hopefully, if you find yourself looking through their offerings, something will suit your fancy as well. Can’t beat a free show, as long as it’s one that you’d prefer over a night at home, right?
