...but I can totally understand it's a wicked way to turn a profit.
Selling tickets at ridiculous prices when they have no intention of going to a gig, and bought them at almost 1/4 of the price.
The Specials are playing in Wolverhampton...two gigs, and both are sold out. Tickets were £32.50 or around that area. I was going to get two, one for me and one for my mate who is also partial to a bit of ol' skool ska/reggae too. But, of course, they sold out as The Specials are from the West Midlands so it's kind of their home gig.
On ebay they're going for loooooads. And don't even get me started on ZZ Top tickets
I'm still not ruling them out...my mate phoned me last night from V-Festival when The Specials were on stage and played the entire 7-8 minute long version of Ghost Town down the phone...which sounded surprisingly good for something being sent via mobile phones. It got me considering the absurd ticket prices again
