You Me At Six Singer Steps Up Fight Against Ticket Scalpers

You Me At Six

(TeamRock) You Me At Six vocalist Josh Franceschi has stepped up his fight against ticket resellers. The singer has called on the UK Government to introduce legislation to ban the mass purchase of tickets online for the purposes of selling them later at an inflated rate.

Previously, the You Me At Six frontman personally sold tickets to fans for an intimate show in London to prevent touts from taking advantage. Now he tells BBC Politics: "When a gig is announced, fans head to primary ticket websites, often to be told it's sold out. But most of the time they're not."It's the touts who have bought them, forcing fans to pay hiked up prices on secondary websites.

Enough is enough. Genuine fans are being priced out of the equation. Music lovers are consumers too, and consumers have rights. In New York, legislation is in place. The UK must follow suit." Watch the video here.
