Alt-rock duo, Royal Blood, have taken a very considered approach to tackling the ever present issue of ticket touts.
According to DIY Magazine, the band are asking fans to sign a petition to curb the secondary ticket market where tickets are bought in bulk and sold on at a much higher price. Once it hits 100,000 signatures will be considered for debate in Parliament.
It’s important to note that this is a case for reselling with a huge mark-up and not targeting fans trying to resell their tickets at face value.
Although this campaign only calls for harsher sanctions on ticket touts, it will no doubt open up the conversation around merch touts and bootleggers outside venues as well.
