Tornado relief concert steering clear of scalpers
NORMAN, Okla. – Toby Keith’s tornado benefit concert is drawing some of the biggest names in country music and thankfully, it seems the scalpers are staying away.
Re-selling tickets for more than they’re worth drew harsh criticism during Blake Shelton’s healing in the heartland relief concert in May.
Now several ticket brokers like StubHub have declined to offer tickets for resale and others are doing so only on a limited basis.
Several independent concert promoters, not associated with the event, said that although scalping may technically be legal, making a profit off the misfortune of others is in poor taste.
Toby Keith’s twister relief concert kicks off at 3 p.m. Saturday at OU’s Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium.
All of the proceeds will benefit the United Way’s tornado relief fund.
