Parks dept. issues online ticket scalping warning

Foellinger Outdoor Theater
The Foellinger Outdoor Theater in Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  After getting reports of online ticket scalping for the upcoming ZZ Top concert at the Foellinger Theater, the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department wants to remind people that tickets can be bought for face value on its own web site.

Most issues have occurred when a ticket buyer performs an internet search for ZZ Top tickets or for Foellinger Theatre. The ticket scalping sites look authentic because the words “Foellinger Theatre” are included in the URL and are also displayed on the home page of the site. Most of these scalping sites have a McAfee Secure Site logo, which further confuses the ticket buyer.

To guard against overpaying for Foellinger Theatre tickets, the Department recommends that patrons go directly to http://www.fortwayneparks.org and click on “Order Your Tickets Today.” That link will lead patrons to a list of concerts with their correct ticket prices and a seating chart, as well as an option to purchase directly from the Parks & Recreation Department. Tickets may also be purchased by calling the Parks & Recreation office at 260-427-6000, by visiting 705 East State Blvd., Monday – Friday, 8 am – 5 pm or purchasing tickets from any of the three Wooden Nickel Music stores in Fort Wayne.
