    Wow!

    There are so many people scalping these ticket on E-Bay. I am shocked!

    this one's funny: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=1349263953

    Prices from $20 - $300, real crock 'o sh*t that some ass wipe bought tons of tix to sell on the bay while fans (like me) were lucky to get a single seat in the theatre.

    Just thought I'd share.

    You may not care for him selling those seats, but did you catch the Muzak style Dance the Night Away he had going on in the background? I'd never heard that version of it, so it was well worth the peak I took.

    Yeah, the Muzak was pretty funny, as was the flaming Sam & Dave fonts.

    These guys/girls must scarf up as many seat as possible as soon as tix are available and liquidate them on e-bay.

    It's not legal right? Only allowed to raise face value by 10% I thought.

    It is a shame so many non fans got all the good seats.. I was on for cleveland the second tix went onsale and got stuck in the back, so I wound up buying 4 front row seats off ebay. I dont mind paying the $$, its worth it to me - I'm traveling from Jersey so I didnt wanna drive 10hrs to sit in the back. But the fact these guys got all the tickets before the fans really sux.. The extra $$ I spent could have bought alot of Vitamin T [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img] .

    I checked the laws cuz I thought the same thing.. The law only applies if the buyer/and or seller live in the same state as the show. If the seller lives in a different state, as well as the buyer then the people can get whatever they want for the tix. The scalping laws have too many loopholes. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    That's interesting. If the buyer and or the seller live in the same state as the event then it is illegal to charge more than face value.

    So If I buy Tix for a show in Kansas (where I do not live) then as long as the buyer is not from Kansas, I can charge whatever I want?

    Or do you mean that if the seller is not in the same state as the event, it is not scalping?

    Just curious, cause I remember as a kid growing up in NY that all the scalpers were in Conneticut.

    EBay has a page that kinda explains how the law works. http://pages.ebay.com/help/community/png-tickets.html
