I have seen - and reported - several of those websites.
This evening I incidentally stumbled upon one that was blocked because the content didn't follow Belgian laws ... (= selling tix before they're even available)

They list them tickets they haven't got now so people panic buy them thinking they've got in there first when really they haven't got tickets and will just have a pre sale code and expect to get them tomorrow or whatever.

Its always the same - Thing is with these stadium tours tickets are never that hard to come by...probably due to the prices.

 

More often than not I get my tickets in the pre sale and feel great about life thinking I've got one over on the rest of the ticket buying population on general release and then I find tickets still available some days after the general sale.

 

Happened with U2 last time round at the O2 in London.

Staff at ticket sellers themselves get first choice (that's how my colleague got tickets to Guns n Roses before they went on sale). Corporate box/season ticket holders also have tickets guaranteed so many of them will sell theirs.

 

It's a stadium tour. If I could get tickets for U2 for an arena gig with just 14k capacity with no hassle whatsoever, we'll all do just fine with a 90k stadium gig.
