When the announcement came through that Paul McCartney would perform in Buffalo for the first time last October, Debra Cresanti, like many fans, hurried to make sure that she was among those who would get a ticket before the concert sold out.

But it did sell out, in just four minutes. She did eventually purchase a ticket, only to find out later that what she had spent on it was actually worth the VIP experience. Cresanti, a Cheektowaga resident, is like many fans who have felt that they have little choice but to spend an arm and a leg if they want to attend a performance.
