The Colorado State Fair Concert tickets are on sale, but the fair is warning the public to avoid scalpers. Some websites charge as much as $300 for a $30 ticket.
The fair says there is nothing they can legally do to stop the scalpers. Box office manager Sheri Giordano says the only genuine places to buy their tickets are from the state fair box office and Ticketmaster.
"Our highest priced ticket is going to be $40 and that is for Martina McBride," Giordano said. "Right now, you can get her tickets at $35. Up until June 23rd, tickets are discounted five dollars."
The hot tickets this summer seem to be Selena Gomez and Martina McBride. As of 11:00 a.m. Saturday, some 2,504 tickets had been sold for those two shows alone.
