A man who purchased tickets to the Neil Young concert to be held in Israel in July was surprised to discover that tickets for the ramp meant for disabled fans cost 25 percent more than general admission tickets.
The man, Ilan Zeller, had purchased eight early bird tickets to the July 17 show. Six of the tickets were general admission tickets, costing NIS 340 apiece, while two were for the disabled ramp, costing NIS 425.
Surprised, Zeller phoned the Eventim company, from which he had purchased the tickets.
He said the customer support representative he spoke with told him that the disabled ramp was a “much better spot” from which to view the concert than the open seating, which will be held in Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon.
“As if a disabled person can choose where to sit,” he told the Yedioth Ahronoth daily.
However, after Zeller spoke with concert producer Shuki Weiss, a different representative told him the difference in pricing was the result of a “human error” and that the disabled fans would be reimbursed “by the day of the show.”
