A proposed new federal law would curb ticket brokers like the glorified scalpers who froze fans out of a string of high-profile concerts by Bruce Springsteen and others.
The new legislation, announced by Sen. Chuck Schumer Sunday, would give fans two days to buy tickets before a ticket reseller can scoop them up.
"The bottom line is we need to create a fair system where fans get first crack at good seats at a reasonable price," Schumer said.
