It appears [bloomberg.com] fans looking to purchase tickets online to the Boss' shows were in for a surprise when:

Ticketmaster this week redirected fans to the Web site of its TicketsNow unit, a ticket reseller, before concerts were sold out.

The TicketsNow site sells tickets at a healthy markup.

The Boss was none too happy [brucespringsteen.net]:

We perceive this as a pure conflict of interest.
