The Boss' comments Wednesday come after complaints that the vendor was redirecting fans to a more expensive ticket seller owned by the company.

When tickets for Springsteen's show at New Jersey's Meadowlands went on sale Monday, some fans got an error message on their computer screen that shut them out. Then an ad appeared for TicketsNow offering tickets for hundreds of dollars more than face value.

Springsteen says on his Web site that he and the E Street Band are "furious." The band says it has received assurances from Ticketmaster that it stopped redirecting fans to TicketsNow.
