Yep, that's what happens when you have a monopoly. People have been trying to get alternatives for it but nothing has worked just yet.

That's the thing about it. Most venues don't sell at the box office any longer.

And if they do, you'll be getting a really bad seat because all of the best seats are blocked off and sold online and via ticket brokers.

When buying tickets these days, expect to pay AT LEAST $10 over face because of all the damned fees.
