* pretends to be shocked *
If I want to sell a piece of rock on a re seller website or any similar service for $5000 dollars and I advertise it as a regular old, random piece of earth rock I found in a vacant lot a couple years back then somebody happens to buy it and I pay the right taxes on it, the reseller or service gets a cut, then the rest is my profit, it's capitalism at its finest.
So that's why I can't ever get tickets normally.
making a big deal out of nothing
BREAKING: Canada Gets Their First Unapologetic A$$hole
…just pray your people don't elect him prime minister like us southern neighbors
People it's simple! Stop buying tickets for these shows online an then the artist will maybe do something about it, seeing that there show is not selling out.
This is why I support paperless tickets and that major artists like Drake, Ed Sheeran, and others are starting to support because they don’t want their fans being ripped off.
There's nothing wrong with scalping. It's a business just like any other. At the same time, I, being a famous rock star myself, don't want my fans to pay more than what I ask for in order to go to my concert. It's my concert, it's my band, … why should some scalper take advantage of my fans and money that should have been mine in the first place? Unless the scalper is secretly working for me.
I stopped going to concerts long ago unless they are reasonably priced. Why be a sheep for these big money machines that are getting carried away? Everyone is lining up pinching pennies at the gas pumos but willing to spend over $500 each to go and see a concert? Not this guy.
I love going to concerts . Scalpers are the worst they need to rot
Make it so tickets can't be resold only returned that's solves the problem
Let’s ask the questions that need to be raised. It seems there are way too many double standards..
1. Who is forcing these people to purchase those “overpriced” tickets?
2. Who is actually putting the value on the ticket, the seller or buyer?
3. What’s the big deal? If you don’t want to be “scammed” then don’t purchase the tickets. If nobody buys these overpriced tickets then the value will drop and so will the prices. Duh…
He deserve jail time period
watching this cause I am thinking of how to get good Monsta X tickets 🙁
Scalping one slow running settler at a time.
People saying ticket scalping is "just business" are what's wrong with America. It's exactly what people said about Al Capone and John Gotti; "oh they're just conducting business", which for the record, is basically just the adult version of the "boys will be boys" argument to defend bullies.
*war flashbacks to trying to get tøp tickets*
This video is an advertising for Stubhub
Don't hate the player hate the game!
That is smart as hell

If you are going to do this company make sure you investigate all corporation especially these banks.
The Chinese are doing the same with the American housing market

Incentivize deez nutz StubHub
I used to be a scalper and a broker for years.
While yes, you make money, it IS hard work.
If it's not illegal then what's the problem? Leave the guy alone.
Nothing illegal with reselling tickets lol these people act like resellers are criminals
Who cares he's not wrong
