Ticketfly Hacked, Tons of Sites Down

posted by Mike Bell - 

If you've had a hard time buying tickets for Costaki Economopoulos the past couple of days, you're not alone. Music and comedy fans across the country are feeling your same frustration. 

Ticketfly announced Thursday that it had been "been the target of a cyber incident" and that "to protect our clients and fans, and to secure the website and related data, we have temporarily taken all Ticketfly systems offline. We’ll keep you updated." This action has not only shut down the main Ticketfly site, but also hundreds of venue websites around the country that use Ticketfly's infrastructure.

The company says that it doesn't "have a specific timeline to share right now" as to when they might be back up. Some venues have shifted ticket sales for shows over the next few days to Ticketweb and EventBrite, with most relying on social media to get the word out about where to pick up tickets.

Not to worry though. Tickets for tonight's comedy show at Elements Venue at 3401 Chester Ave. will be available at the door.
