Breach the topic of scalping with anyone in the music industry, and what you’ll get is some kind of rage-fuelled word vomit about the seven circles of hell, bottom-feeding and the scum of the earth. Fact is, nobody likes scalpers and everything they do.
Violent Soho have played a strong move in the great war against scalping, taking the game into their own hands as soon as they caught a couple of their Christmas show tix online for a hefty pricetag.
If you find a couple of your tickets being scalped online, what do you do? Violent Soho have shown us all the best way to deal with scalpers.
Upon finding them online, Soho refunded the scalper’s tickets and decided to give them away to a couple of lucky fans instead.
Check out their post below, and be sure to comment if you’re keen on those tickets.
It came to our attention earlier today that someone was trying to sell 2 x tickets to our Friday Xmas show on Gumtree for almost triple the price. This obviously isn’t in the spirit of the show so we had the ticketing agency refund the tickets to him so he can no longer sell them at a profit. So now we have two tickets available to the show and in true Christmas spirit we want to give them to one of you free of charge. All you have to do is tag a mate in the comments that you think deserves the tickets and why. We will pick a winner based on the responses this Friday. Merry Xmas! 🎄🎅🏻🍻
