EBay has confirmed to The Music today that any sales relating to Fire Fight Australia tickets have been removed from its website.
With news that the Fire Fight Australia stadium concert has officially sold out today, it has been found that tickets for the benefit show are being sold for over triple the price on eBay.
Tickets for the show, taking place at ANZ Stadium on Sunday 16 February, went on sale on Monday for maximum $100 a ticket, however tickets are currently listed on eBay for over $250; this despite the fact that all ticket profits through Ticketek will go to organisations providing rescue, relief and recovery, and rehabilitation efforts.
One auction for two general admission tickets has received over 30 bids and is going for $455.
In contrast, global ticket reseller Viagogo, which has consistently been drawn into heated discussion about ticket scalping in Australia, has issued a 'DO NOT USE' tag when a search is entered for Fire Fight Australia tickets.
The Music has contacted eBay and Fire Fight Australia promoters, TEG Dainty and TEG Live, for comment.
Massive international and Australian acts were confirmed on the line-up on Monday morning including Queen + Adam Lambert, Alice Cooper, John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John, kd lang, Amy Shark, Hilltop Hoods, Grinspoon, Icehouse and Tina Arena.
