New Jersey's attorney general says Ticketmaster should stop steering consumers to a reselling subsidiary offering more expensive concert tickets because it may violate state law.

Attorney General Anne Milgram said Thursday she has asked for more information about the company's sales practices after the state received more than 1,000 complaints over sales for Bruce Springsteen's upcoming concerts.

Fans who couldn't buy through Ticketmaster's Web site were directed to its subsidiary reseller, TicketsNow, which offered more expensive seats.

Milgram says the redirecting may violate the state's consumer fraud act.

Company CEO Irving Azoff has apologized to Springsteen and his fans. He says the company would no longer direct them to the subsidiary.
