Buyer beware: concert tickets come with strings

Tickets for a concert benefiting the victims of the wildfire near Boulder are being offered for hundreds of dollars despite efforts to prevent scalping.

The tickets officially went for $60 a piece and sold out in two minutes.

The Daily Camera reports that bidding for one pair of tickets reached $610 on eBay. Someone else offered to trade four tickets for a room in Mexico on Craigslist.

The tickets are paperless and concertgoers must swipe the credit card used to purchase the tickets to get in. One person selling a ticket is offering to walk in with the buyer but others aren't mentioning the rules.

The concert will be held Oct. 9 in Broomfield and will feature bands including The String Cheese Incident and Phish.
