Of all the scummy types of shitbag people who exist in this world, there’s a particular level of hell reserved for ticket scalpers and those who enable them.
ICYMI, legendary music figure Paul McCartney is set to tour our big brown land this December for the first time in 24 years and before the gigs have even gone on sale to the public, scalpers have already posted tickets online for the infuratingly dodgy sums of up $6,600 for two tickets.
Yesterday a small group of Aussies in a P-Mac fanclub were blessed with access to pre-sales, but as per usual some dirtbags not even planning on attending have posted their tickets to the industry loathed Viagogo re-sale site.
Quick reminder: if you use sites like these to purchase or sell gig tickets, you’re single-handedly contributing to the ongoing shitfight that the Australian music industry continues to battle through and you should have a long hard look at yourself and your life choices.
Seeing how the highest priced tickets on sale via official means are around $400, these scalper tickets are marking shit up by nearly 1000% and this is before a second pre-sale and general on-sale occurs so these thousand dollar scalper tickets could go even higher.

If you’re one of the thousands of people stinging for some Paul McCartney sing-alongs, make sure to do the right thing for music in this country and hit up the Frontier Music pre-sale which kicks off Thurs June 29th or get hyped for general on-sale July 4th. All deets available at the Frontier site.
And just for one more time, FUCK YOU TICKET SCALPERS YOU BOTTOM FEEDING TURDS.
