Someone — and we’re going to feel free to assume the word “dirtbag” might be an appropriate descriptor here — is trying to sell tickets to LCD Soundsystem’s final show on April 2 for $1,500 a pop. Yes, you read that right! There is a person on StubHub, who can’t be identified because StubHub sellers’ identities are anonymous, but who I nonetheless think it’s safe to assume is definitely a money grubbing asshole, who is offering a chance to see LCD Soundsystem’s final show for $1,500 — per ticket. James Murphy — or whoever’s behind the Official LCD Twitter — got wind of the whole thing and seems kind of pissed off about it, if the stream of tweets below are any indication (and I’m guessing they are):
1500 for a single ticket? Fuck you, scalpers. You are parasites. I HATE you.
i will try to figure a way out to fuck these fuckers. NO MATTER WHAT WE DO, IT IS NOT WORTH THAT KIND OF MONEY TO SEE US!
TRIED ALREADY! anonymous internet…you should contact them pretending you want to buy a ticket, then beat the shit out of them…
looking into the legality, but i might be shit out of luck. honestly… i mean, it’s not murder, but still… parasites.
reading yr responses. i know people are pissed-i am 2. be sweet if i owned stubhub, tho. shitbags. i mean, charge DOUBLE or something…
i’m going to go eat dinner and try not to punch a stranger in the face. thanks, everybody. #feelinglikekanye
I doubt that making an enemy of the band will mean much to the sort of person who would try this kind of thing — because, again, that person is probably a total dick with many, many more enemies already — but hopefully, it’ll keep anyone from buying this.
Anyway, see you at the next United Against Greedy Pricks meeting, guys. Let’s work on coming up with a catchier acronym.
