Is StubHub cheaper than Ticketmaster?

It’s the same reason why sometimes tickets are listed higher on Stubhub as they are/were on Ticketmaster: prices are set by individual ticket owners, pricing based on demand. When this happens, pricing in the open market (stubhub) tends to go well below the Ticketmaster (or primary market) price.

How can you tell if tickets are fake?

Take a paper clip and heat it up red hot. Set the hot edge on the corner of the ticket for a few seconds. If it’s a genuine ticket, it will turn the front brown and you will see very little, if anything, on the back. A fake ticket will usually catch on fire but will always show a burnt mark on the back side.
