Her website says that every single one of her shows are sold out, but when I checked there were many seats available at those jacked up prices!
Of course they only paid face value for the tickets. It's a big fucking scam and it's been going on for years. Apparently it's legal now since we have sites like Stubhub and Vividseats all over the Internet. Hell, you can even scalp your tickets on Ticketmaster now and that's where you get face value tickets.
The shows have sold out because scalpers and people who want to go to the show bought all of the tickets.
Tool just had the same thing happen with their recent tour but I can still find tickets on the scalper sites.
Being offended is a small price to pay for the right to free speech.
