We’re continuing to fight the good fight against all forms of ticket scalping and wanted to reiterate our message: Please don’t buy tickets to our shows from secondary websites such as Stubhub, Viagogo, Craigslist, Ebay, Gumtree, Vividseats or SeatGeek. We can’t guarantee they’ll be real or that you’ll get them for the price we intend. Please do only buy tickets via the information we provide on our website.
In some parts of the world brokers and scalping are actively regulated against on a government level, in others we have to employ the best strategies we can to keep them away. Once again, for our August US and Canada tour dates, we will be offering dynamically-priced Platinum tickets through Ticketmaster.
These tickets will be limited and will be priced in such a way as to help keep the average market price of our tickets on secondary sites as low as possible. At our request Ticketmaster will be turning off TM+ for our tickets and instead we will be using a service we’ve used before called Lyte to allow fans the ability to sell their tickets to other fans.
All profits from tickets sold through Platinum that would have come to the band will instead be put into the Gentlemen of the Road Fund to be invested in charities around the world. We will be keeping you up to date on our work and how this income from our fund will be distributed on gentlemenoftheroad.com
