Stand Up To The Ticket Touts. Please sign this petition.
In the last 2 years of touring we have seen first-hand how our fans have experienced problems caused by the unscrupulous actions of professional Ticket Touts. The ecstatic feeling of announcing and putting a tour on sale is short-lived when we immediately see that these tickets are marked up at a staggering increase and listed on Secondary Ticketing Websites. The plague of Ticket Touts who harvest huge volumes of tickets online and then immediately sell them at many times the face value must stop.
We do not want to deny fans the opportunity to resell a ticket if they cannot attend a show, but we do want to curb the escalating problem of ticketing touting and ticket fraud.
The unauthorised reselling of tickets is a global problem. However we appeal to you all in the UK music, sports & theatre fans to sign this support petition that demands politicians to tighten up consumer legislation to better protect fans.
If 100,000 of you sign it, then Government will be pressurised to consider debating the issue in Parliament.

Please sign it today and spread the word.
