Government call for R1 ticket ban

CATEGORY: News

Government minister Shaun Woodward has demanded that eBay remove tickets for Radio One’s Big Weekend. Tickets for the free event were allocated by ballot, but are now being sold on eBay for silly money: some auctions are obviously being wrecked by those who object to the sales. Woodward, demonstrating apparent ignorance of how eBay works, said “eBay should stop selling the tickets – the artists are not making money from this free event, so why should the touts?” eBay have said they are investigating the matter.
