It's Unfortunate, Corruption abounds in the Concert Ticket Game. It amazes me how many tickets get consumed by the business of Resale Tickets. Here in the USA, the day before the Fan Club Pre Sale tickets even went on sale, there were Resale Ticket sites offering up a variety of seats for purchase at crazy inflated prices....Mind you at that time they didn't have the tickets in hand but with confidence there was a certainty that the Re Seller would have said tickets... A Mystery... Corrupt...Vicious.... I support the Petition, not being a U.K. Resident I am not able to sign but I do stand next to you in support...

Calling all uk u2 fans please read this thread and share with other fans this is a petition that we have the power to get to parliament
Fans who have moaned on theirs site about not getting tickets need to take action along with those that have tickets
If everybody who went to see u2 at Wembley on the horizon tour signed this would reach the numbers to get to parilment
Last time there was a petition like this it fell short of the required 100,000 needed this time we could get change but we need to keep this in the public eye. Come on u2 family lets get this done

I must say I'm disappointed with the response to the petition here in the uk to stop secondary ticket sites selling tickets at inflated prices
Last month the chat was all about not getting tickets as they had gone on these sites but the anger people felt then seems to have dried up
If everybody who got a ticket and those that didn't sign this petition we could get change
As pattie smith sang out at the start of the ie tour people have the power so come on u2 fans here in the uk lets take that power for the good of all concert goers
Sign this petition share it with friends

there is always also the other point. i was sometimes very happy to get tickets for a sold out show. with this Petition you dont have ANY chance to get a ticket... so, whats better? for me it's no Problem to pay more then the original Price. i think they must be other restrictions... as example no online sale.

Are you serious? They're not asking a law to ban resale but resale at above the original price!

The most successful recent petition on this attracted around 87,000 signatures. https://petition.par...etitions/128969If you read down you'll find the response to the petition and a link to the report that was commissioned by the government on this topic. I'm afraid there's no prospect of legislation on this.

I'd also recommend https://motherboard....ke-ticketmasteras being well worth reading.

Yes the last petition didn't reach the numbers needed to go forward
But if we can keep this one going up we could get there to stop resale on these sites at inflated prices
That's why we need to get as many people to sign
Again people have the power so let's take that power and try to get change
