An assortment of absolute scumdogs – sorry, ‘scalpers’ – have reportedly begun flipping tickets to Sunday’s One Love Manchester benefit concert, the event organised by Ariana Grande after the Manchester Arena bombing.
Ticketmaster has confirmed that it’ll be nuking scalped passes to the event, which will see artists including Grande, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, and maybe Oasis perform to raise funds for those affected by the tragedy.
#OneLoveManchester We’re working hard to get tickets direct to fans. We are cancelling tickets of those who are reselling wherever possible

Infuriatingly, Ticketmaster also says that nearly 25,000 people applied for the free tickets supplied to anyone who was at Grande’s Manchester gig last month, when only 14,200 were actually in attendance.
This is completely against eBay rules. We are immediately removing all listings which attempt to profit unfairly from what happened.
