Nice article about Trent Reznor trying to combat re-sale ticket outlets:
I always thought scalping was illegal, so I don't understand how it's ok for companies to resell tickets at hundreds of dollars above face value. The RS article makes mention of a time when scalping "used to be" illegal, so I guess the law has changed. It's good to see that Trent is speaking out against this practice.
The ticket price issue is one that I feel strongly about. Kudos to Trent and to other acts like No Doubt, who are offering lawn seats at shows for only $10, for trying to keep their shows affordable.
