Ariana Grande returns to Manchester this Sunday for her One Love Manchester concert that is set to raise money for the from the Manchester bombing that occurred less than two weeks ago. Major artists from around the world, including Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Usher, and many others have chimed in for the cause and are joining Ariana in her relief concert. Artists are paying for their own transportation and will be performing for free as all proceeds the event are directed towards the victims the attack.
Tickets for the event went on sale yesterday morning at 10 A.M for £40. To no one’s surprise, the show sold out in a matter just 6 minutes. With such a star-studded lineup, some the lucky ticket-purchasers decided to maximize on the opportunity to turn their tickets into quick cash by listing them up on eBay. The tickets hit the secondary market at outrageous prices as some were even priced for as high as £400. eBay has already confirmed that any tickets for the event listed on their platform will be removed immediately.
Ticket scalpers has always been frowned upon but when it comes to certain causes such as the One Love Manchester concert, scalpers need to reevaluate their morals before if they decide to participate in such disrespectful behavior.
