New Jersey is probably the last place Ticketmaster wanted trouble selling seats to a Bruce Springsteen show.
Nearly 2,200 people complained to the state this month after they encountered problems trying to buy tickets to see the Garden State's favorite son at the Meadowlands.
Ticketmaster's Web site told some fans that no tickets were available but allowed them to link to TicketsNow.com, a wholly owned subsidiary that sold seats at a substantially higher price.
The Boss said he was "furious" at Ticketmaster and called its practice of redirecting customers to TicketsNow "a pure conflict of interest."
Ticketmaster settled the complaints yesterday by entering an agreement with the state Attorney General's Office to change several business practices, reimburse some fans, and provide tickets to others.
