Springsteen concert ticket prices outrage fans

January 29, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
Some Bruce Springsteen fans are outraged after finding out they might have to pay thousands of dollars to see him in concert.

Tickets to Springsteen's five upcoming shows in New York and New Jersey went on sale Friday. But when fans went online to buy them, they were frozen out.

Within a few hours, those tickets were being offered on secondary markets for nearly $9,000. Face value of the tickets was only $114.

Ticketmaster is blaming the problem on a cyber-attack by scalpers using sophisticated computer programs.
