Tickets for Rage Against the Machine‘s reunion tour are on sale, and the band is doing their best to combat ticket scalpers and inflated prices. According to Rage’s Tom Morello, the band has kept 85% of tickets off the resale market with over $3 million raised for charity.
Prior to tickets going on sale, Rage implemented a model that allowed them to hold back 10 percent of the tickets available at each show. They then sold these tickets as “charity tickets,” which were above standard ticket prices, but all of the money from these sales will benefit a local charity. This was done is response to resale tickets appearing on websites before any ticket was even sold in the first place.
In recent years, it has become increasingly difficult for fans to obtain tickets to high-demand concerts as scalpers when scalpers purchase most of them and sell them later at prices far beyond face value.
