cause he got them to make money on them, hope hes feeling brave when he hands them over face to face, some people cant get real nasty towards touts
hate touting myself. the only way you are gonna make money on the mccartney tickets is if they are central block bang in front of the stage,otherwise-NO CHANCE.

john mayer-zero chance!

gaga-remember the promoter released a load of tickets at the last minute for the last round of gigs and people will wait to see if that happens this time.

is rihanna even sold out?

agreed


as barky said you could have at least bought tickets worth reselling lol you'll be lucky to get face value on your tickets haha unlucky
ive got a tip for you....stop buying tickets you dont want and let the people that do want them buy them......
t@sser......
hope you lose money hahaha hope no one buys them off you
lolz.

To be honest, you're no worse that places like Ticketmaster. People say they hate touts but happily buy from places like ticketmaster that add on their own absurd admin fees.

You won't make a profit on them.
Thats what you get for taking them from people
who genuinely wanted them
you mon't make any unless they have sold out, unless the people who buy them off you are stupid.

p.s. hate touts as they stop the real fans going or charge them alot more than they should pay!! get a proper way of making money and stop ripping off people who like the artist

p.p.s Not really the website to ask since we are about SAVING people money and not getting ripped off
i hope you lose money on them aswell, i hate people touting tickets,

I totally disagree with what your doing and i hope it backfires....
As mentioned before hope you lose money on the lot

I'm sick of struggling to get tickets to gigs due to imbeciles like yourself

touts = scum
I always find the best time to sell on tickets is always straight after the event has sold out while the immediate interest is still there otherwise i think you may struggle, else you could try places like play tickets or via go go?
Never mind there being "barely any profit", I hope you make a substantial loss on them, idiot.

best advice report the Op to ASB " the fist of iron" and the Op could get a ban for even mentioning touting tickets:lol:

Try earning money the decent way. Why would you deprive real fans of the opportunity to go to these concerts just to make an extra pound here and there.

Fool
Like everyone else, i can't stand touts as stops genuine fans getting tickets. I was glad to see touts losing loads when I seen Noel gallagher at the RAH earlier in the month.

It will be good once all ticket vendors/promotors ask you to show the card you paid with to gain access to the gig as this would keep tickets for genuine fans

Won't happen though, as what happens if you pay with your parents card, for example you are like 15/16 and too young for a card?

Good idea but to many implications and problems it will cause
Always wondered why you had so much trouble with friends that you had to start threads about it...then I saw this thread...

I noticed it happened with the peter kay warm up gigs and everyone who purchased had to show their card that purchased the tickets to gain entry. I was going to buy some for a mate but didn't fancy him taking my card to the gig as no doubt he would get bevvied and lose my card...lol

something needs to be done about touts but up to now as long as they keep losing money on tickets they can't sell or sell at a loss then that will do...lol

methinks this is another attention seeking thread :whistling: and OP hasn't really got any of said tix
Love how these posters all happen to be saints and wouldnt dare try make money off someone else in anyway shape or form.

As soon as it comes to music, people get all emotional over someone depriving people of tickets.

Comical tbh.

GL with sale, prob last thing I recon, but leave enough time to get em sold. Gumtree is a good place.
Why don't you bundle them with a crappy out of date calender?

Hmm now there's an idea
Don't blame the touts. Blame the buyers. They are the ones driving the market for it.

99% of people on here would jump on the chance to make a quick £200 profit.
