Justin Bieber

Fans SUE

We Got Charged an Arm and a Leg!

EXCLUSIVE

03-19-14-bieber-bon-jovi-tmzA New York woman claims there has been a dastardly plot to DENY her the right to see Justin Bieber and Bon Jovi at an affordable price ... and now she's suing the Goliath of concerts.

Jessica Pollard claims in a lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- she was forced to pay exorbitant prices for a Bon Jovi show in 2010 and a Bieber show in 2013.

Pollard is pointing the greedy finger at AEG, claiming it intentionally withheld more than 5% of tickets for Biebs and Bon Jovi ... selling them to brokers who would charge way more than retail.

Pollard claims AEG is flagrantly violating New Jersey's Consumer Fraud Act, which prohibits promoters from bogarting more than 5% of the tix.

She is suing on behalf of all the now cash-strapped Bieber fans -- and Bon Jovi too -- who now have to eat Top Ramen because they blew their budget on expensive concerts.

We reached to AEG for comment ... so far, no word back.

You agreed to the price when you bought the tickets. There are no laws that protect you from your own stupidity.

If you cant afford it dont go. I would think would be common sense but I guess not. It's a luxury item, you can survive without going to concerts. There are many concerts I missed before I finished college and had extra money so to speak.

Man, TMZ hates it when Bieber behaves for a day and posts crap like this. Ticket price issues have been challenged since the caveman. It's the artist and the market. Promoters know only that popularity changes like the weather. Bieber will be playing bar mitzvahs soon.

Court do***ents show Justin had a hairline foot fracture and was not DUI in Miami Beach! I'd like to see any hater walk a straight line in a sobriety test with a fractured foot !!! But TMZ wont admit to their fabricated stories because Justin can't sue them for defamation! But I want the public to know that TMZ addicted to lies!
