When individual tickets go on sale June 10 for the 2013-14 season at the Gallo Center for the Arts, use only the center's website to avoid being overcharged, officials warn.
Gallo Center Chief Executive Officer Lynn Dickerson said third-party ticket sites continue to be a problem for the center and its patrons.
"(Third parties) go in for a hot show when we launch it and they'll buy up 20 or 30 really good seats and then they go online and resell them at these exorbitant prices like literally $200, $300, $400 a seat, when we're selling it for maybe $60 or $70 a seat," she said. "People get tricked into this because they just Google Gallo Arts and they end up just getting taken to the cleaners."
The Gallo Center website is www.galloarts.org; call the box office at (209) 338-2100.
