Yes I also had the same reaction you having when you read this headline. Facebook bout to change x switch the game up. Well kinda considering the fact that they want people not to leave Facebook their platform and purchase tickets directly from them.
The good news is that this service is being tested with a few people in the U.S and its still in fruition but Facebook wont make an announcement like this unless they got their story straight.
I posted this cause lots of our brothers and sisters are into events/promoters and most of our own hip hop artists do lots of events as well.
