Attorney-General May Probe ‘Over-Priced’ Tragically Hip Tickets

'Sold-Out' Tix Being Resold Within Minutes

Ontario’s Attorney General may look into the pre-sale of tickets for the Tragically Hip’s summer concerts.  There have been many complaints when they went on sale this week; that they had sold out almost immediately and the price on secondary websites had climbed into the thousands of dollars. Some questioned how the tickets, which required buyers to enter a code to complete their purchase, could turn up for resale within minutes. Others wondered how concerts, which were raising money for charity, were being exploited by scalpers.
