As of right now, no one actually has a ticket, or a confirmation of a ticket for the Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead shows. So why are tickets popping up in a range of stupid prices on StubHub as for sale? Scalpers are posting tickets to see who bites and at what price range. So if they list tickets between $2k and $50k, and the clicks stop at $10k the second that the resellers have an actual ticket in their hand you can be sure they won’t be listed below the $10k price.
This is an unfortunate part of the ticket sale and resale industry, but what you’re seeing is the resale industry figuring out how much they’re going to pay to purchase a ticket, and how much they can potentially expect to get for them. (And from the looks of it, it’ll be a lot. The current range of listed nonexistent tickets is $2k to almost $60k.)
At best, this interest in StubHub tickets is encouraging resale of tickets for absurd prices, and at worst someone’s going to actually buy one of these nonexistent tickets.
