If you were hoping to score fairly-priced tickets today for the Tragically Hip’s 2016 Canadian summer tour, you’re out of luck!
A single ticket to one of the two Toronto shows (happening June 10 and June 12) will cost you at least $500.
Members of the Tragically Hip fan club were given access to an exclusive presale Monday May 30th at 10am (the general public will get their chance at 10 am on Friday, June 3rd).
Stafford Show listener and Hip fan Jeff tried to grab a pair this morning. Here’s what he was greeted with on Ticketmaster:
“Well Mike, scalpers win again,” Jeff reported in his email. “I had the fan club presale which started at 10. At 10:00:30 they were gone. Sure enough, StubHub has them already.”
Hip fans have shared their displeasure on the Tragically Hip’s Facebook page.
