£1,000 for two tickets!? \:shock:\ I was on all morning trying to get tickets. Then greedy Thatcherite scum decided to stick their arms in. Worst is, people are actually bidding for them!\

How are these lying pricks able to get away with saying "2 tickets in hand ready to post" when they only went on sale this morning on the internet! Why wont the government step ins and stop 3rd parties selling them on for robbing prices? How can anyone justify when a big gig I want to go to sells out in three mins, yet later the same day most of the tickets are then on sale again for 10 times the price from these other "ticket agencies"? It should be made illegal to sell them on for more than face value. Ebay should ban these people from selling them. It makes me sick! The bands obviously don't give a fuck either as there getting there money either way so they do fuck all about it! AC/DC have enough clout behind them to be able to deal with this surely? They're the second biggest selling act of all time for fuck sake. Cunts!That's the touts and the bands!!! \:evil:\

Diddies, I've since been informed that the first wave go through like that (ie £1000 for 2 tickets) because Ebay get a fee off you selling items. So after a while, they begin to stamp down once they've got enough cash.\

Man, I love this word. I didn't know you British people use it THAT often, though.

Be careful - in the US it's like dropping an atomic bomb. The Brits use it a bit more "playfully".

It's still frowned upon though and one of the last swear words you should use unless you really want to offend someone \:o\

But really, who cares? It's AC/DC. I'm just surprised that anyone would spend £40 to go see them, let alone £1000.

Considering the European and American tour sold out in 15 minutes, I'd say a lot of people care.
