Please read before offering to buy, sell, or trade concert tickets

With Prince back on the road, and members of the .org interested in getting tickets, I think it's a good time for a friendly reminder about our anti-scalping policies:

The price must be the SAME or LESS than FACE VALUE (plus any ticket fees charged by the original ticket distributor--not an agent.) So for example, if you buy a concert ticket for $125 with a $4.50 service fee, you can ask up to $129.50 for it. You may ask for shipping on top of this amount if applicable, but you must only pass along the shipping cost, without any markup.

If you purchased from an "agent" etc. that charged you more than the face price+original ticket distributor fee, you may NOT ask for this amount. For example, the same ticket above that actually "cost" $129.50, if you paid $400 for it from a ticket "agent", you may still only ask for $129.50 for the ticket on prince.org.


The idea here is to help as many .orgers as possible obtain concert tickets, but without giving scalpers a forum for making money off of our members.

Thanks for your cooperation, and enjoy the shows! guitar
