Whilst trying to buy myself a ticket for one of Wilko Johnsons farewell gigs, I came across this woman, Deborah Harris & saw how touts have been snapping up these tickets. Touting with huge mark up is wrong anyway, but hell Wilko has the right to do this gig his way. It is wrong for touts to rape him of this by re selling tickets so expensively that the crowd will not be the real, true crowd that should be there.
Deborah got this piece in a local paper the other day.
She has also now uploaded this onto you tube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=04BJ8Q9rIb8 hoping it will go viral, to at least raise awareness of yet another way of how those with money & no passion can deny those with little money & a lot of passion of the simple yet important things in life.
If you cannot see the video, you can also sin the petition here http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/stop-e-ticket-companies-and-touts-exploiting-us/ They do suggest a donation after you have voted, this is not mandatory & do not let it put you off. They rely on donations & If someone wants to & can afford to then fine, otherwise do not stress about it.
