    Default STOP THE SCALPERS

    everyone, let's all just bid like 10k on all those tickets.

    i've done it before when people tried to sell gold dust tickets to football games over here.

    scalpers are scum.

    Have you ever heard of this thing called capitalism? Scalpers are well within their rights to do what they do, and the only reason they exist is because PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO PAY whatever they charge.

    If you don't like them, don't buy their goods - simple as that.

    I SWEAR TO GOD YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET A TICKET DAY OF SHOW AT FACE VALUE!!!!! People always back out and leave someone holding an extra ticket. You have 3 months to the show, trust me you will be able to get a ticket for face value. It is a festival, not a small club

    People are idiots if they're paying $400 for them, especially since the 3 Day Pass is still available for $250.

    This is very very true. You'll get them for cheaper than face value too. No ticketmaster charges.

    For NIN two years ago I had friends buy 4 tickets from some poor guy who had his friends stand him up for $20 off face value.

    The tickets aren't sold out. They're doing a delayed-release sort of thing. Or at least that's what they said...

    Are scalpers within their right?

    Originally from Mass ... I am pretty sure selling tickets for more then 10% above face value is actually illegal out there ... (It's something like 10%)

    I know on line broker agencies get away with it by calling the mark up a "service fee" ...

    I personally think it's horseshit ... but, I also get my tickets when they go on sale ... and revel in the times I see scalpers outside a show struggling to sell their tickets ... I've seen some angry scalpers lose there shirts on shows. Makes me smile.

    Different states have different laws for this. California has no restriction on how high it can be resold. Check the back of any ticketmaster ticket stub and it will say which states restrict this.
