FACUA warns of 'illegal' ticket re-sales for Bruno Mars concerts costing four times original price
29 November 2016 @ 21:55

CONSUMER organisation FACUA has denounced re-sales of Bruno Mars concert tickets at inflated prices via unauthorised websites whilst the official channels show up as being sold out.

The same practice was detected months ago with Bruce Springsteen and Red Hot Chilli Peppers concerts.

According to FACUA, the website Seatwave is selling tickets for Bruno Mars' gigs in Barcelona and Madrid at exceptionally high prices – and Seatwave is part of the same company as that which runs Ticketmaster, an official channel for major events held in Spain.

Ticketmaster's site claimed all entries for Bruno Mars were sold out, but a drop-down menu shows they are still available elsewhere and allows the customer to go onto Seatwave without leaving the original website.

Madrid city council's municipal consumer institute already has an inquiry open involving Ticketmaster for previous reports into increased-price ticket sales elsewhere.
