Take That tix — "Inc booking fee" does not mean what it seems

MCD says tickets to Take That are €70.70 including booking fee. What does that mean?

One their web site MCD says the tickets are available at that price through the following outlets:
  • From 100 Ticketmaster Outlets Nationwide
  • By Telephone (24 Hour):
  • ROI - 0818 719 300, Northern Ireland - 0844 277 44 55
  • Book On Line:

Well, to me that means when you buy two tickets – regardless of how – you should pay €141.40. Yet someone I know was charged €154.10 for tickets bought through

Shouldn't part of their radio ads include this?
"When we say 'including booking fee' that does NOT mean that the tickets will actually cost what we claim. Additional charges may still apply."
