Aldous Harding and New Order playing without me being there to listen should be a pivotal moment in me being more proactive about buying tickets.

Anywhooo I got a ticket for the seoda shows gig in limerick, the line up is rediculous for the price. I'm not even sure where I'm gonna sleep.

"it is understood tickets that were being resold were Platinum tickets priced at €140 each. The selling price for a standard ticket was originally between €39.50 and €42."

I've always thought paying over the odds for tickets was ridiculous. Live gigs are for the most part overrated in my opinion.

Maybe I'm wrong here,as I rarely go to gigs with a high demand for tickets.

That article says tickets can't be sold for more than face value or whatever. But doesn't ticket master do something where ticket price is dictated by demand,so the prices go up(or down) according to demand?
How does that factor in?

I guess theyve decided that there are enough people who'll put the price or ethics aside to make it worth doing. Wasn't it just a rebrand of some other rip anyways?

I didn't follow it closely enough to really know. Appeared to be fishy though. So glad I don't have to deal with that crap

Platinum tickets are ticketmaster selling them, not being resold

What are Official Platinum Tickets? there are resale tickets on ticketmaster for same price too

The ticketmaster site states

1.6 The Ticket Exchange further provides a safe place for customers to purchase Resale Tickets at a fair price, as we impose a cap on the amount sellers can list their Resale Tickets for sale
