FREE Jimmy Buffet Concert...

I live down on the gulf coast and Jimmy Buffet, Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney and others are going to put on a FREE benefit concert (by the way about the ONLY concern we have seen from the Hollywood fundraising mecca) and yje tickets went on sale today at 10am. Needless to say the tickets were gone in 3 min. But NOW they are popping up all over ebay! Scalpers from as far norths as canada are selling them for THOUSANDS. Many people down here are calling for these bids to be removed from Ebay! There is even a FB page for it http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/E-Bay-Should-Remove-the-Free-Jimmy-Buffett-Tickets/114385315273759! What do you think? Should ebay remove them? Or, like others are calling for, should you be able to go to this FREE concert without tickets, no gates?

  • Love, love, love Jimmy Buffett. I think they could do a first come first serve concert with stationed to collect donations and also different stations to help organize volunteers.

  • If it is in an indoor venue, then they should have first come seating. If it is in an unlimited outdoor venue, then SRO first come first seated.
    Ebay should remove the tickets as that's scalping and I don't know many states that allow it.

  • Im in OceanSprings, Ms and SOOOO wanted to go....It makes me SICK that the people down here lost out on tickets for some stupid people to make a quick buck! That facebook page is correct...it is the SAME AS LOOTING AFTER A HURRICANE.

  • Update! YAY!! It looks like ebay released a atatment saying they will pull them down and not allow it! Ok..now There's a NEW problem......AALLL those tickets (like the ones in Canada, you know those people had no plans to come down here but to make a quick buck!) are now going to be useless AND it will hurt the entire POINT of the benefit...to GET people down here to spend money!! NOW what??

  • Momof, maybe they will use Freecycle to give them away. Hopefully.
