Bill To Ban Online Ticket Scalping

Staff Pick

Recognizing the pain felt by thousands of Parrotheads every year when all the available tickets to the next Jimmy Buffett show get snapped up in seconds by scalpers, state Sen. Margie Bright Matthews decided it was time for a change in latitude and a change in attitude. Matthews has introduced a bill that would make it illegal for scalpers to resell tickets online for more than $1 over their original price. For anyone who has ever had their chance to enjoy “Cheeseburger in Paradise” in a live setting callously stolen at the last second, this is music to your ears. —Dustin Waters
