WANT TIGER TICKETS? DON'T CALL TICKETMASTER
Published December 19, 1994
The Tigers will bring their ticket sales in-house starting in mid-February, replacing Ticketmaster. Atanas Ilitch, daughter of Tigers Owner Mike Ilitch, said tickets will be sold through a team-run telephone service, outlets in the suburbs and some larger communities, and at the Tiger Stadium box office. Tickets for the Red Wings, roller hockey's Rockers and other entertainment enterprises owned by Ilitch will continue to be sold through Ticketmaster for now, but they could follow the Tigers if the ticket in-house operation works. Tigers ticket prices will remain the same, however, buyers will pay less because the Ticketmaster service charge will be eliminated (John Lowe, DETROIT FREE PRESS, 12/16).
