Maybe sour grapes on my part but here goes.

I have purchased hundred of pound worth of music etc via iTunes -last year applied for 7 gigs was hoping for 1. Nothing. Yet I know people who have applied never purchased anything formations and they received tickets. To add insult, they are not even 'fans' of the groups they are going to see. Its a gig and a night out.

Surely gig tickets could be awarded to those that have purchased artist music via iTunes?

Its a great event and and wish everyone a great night out :)

well to be fair tickets are supposedly awarded on a lottery system which would mean its random drawings not at all based on your financial worth to apple. but I don't think apple does it to attract sales anyway. I think they just do it out of company culture, and excess money, hoards of excess money to spend.
