RATM announce charity ticket initiative
Rage Against The Machine have posted in Instagram about ticket sales for their comeback tours, and it’s interesting if incomplete. They explain:
“…since the announcement of our tour, scalpers and broker sites have been listing fake tickets for RATM. We want to do everything we can to protect our fans from predatory scalping and, at the same time, raise a substantial amount of money for charities and activist organisations we support in each city.” They say 50% of tickets are being grabbed and resold by scalpers, and the band are doing everything they can to stop this. Although they don’t say what that is.
Less frustratingly, they do outline a good initiative: 10% of tickets for each show, drawn randomly across the seating, will be held back and sold by the band later on, at a slightly higher than normal but definitely lower than scalper price, and all money from these given to charities and activist groups in that location.
Also, profits from the first three shows will go to immigrants’ rights organizations.
