first_imgWeezer has just announced their first album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, since 2010, and simultaneously announced a tour of intimate venues, with full performances of the new work. Naturally, tickets to these shows sold out quickly, considering the small venue capacity and reasonable ticket prices ($65 each).So, when one fan took to Craigslist to scalp the tickets for the band’s show at The Sinclair in Boston, to the tune of $250 per ticket, the internet responded.Whoever is selling 2 @Weezer tickets on Craigslist for $500 is the scum of the earth. http://t.co/cBhvywGwWR pic.twitter.com/JT6MPouY9F— Craig Silva (@craignb) September 29, 2014The tweet was recognized by Boston.com writer Luke O’Neil, who both wrote an article on the scalping and posted the following reply:Hey the @TheSinclair can you figure out who this is then ban him for life? @craignb @Weezer cc: @cplavin— luke oneil (@lukeoneil47) September 29, 2014The original poster, Craig Silva, dug up some more info about the scalper:@lukeoneil47 @thesinclair @weezer @cplavin PS guys name is Daniel and his # is 6319658129 haha (via/ CL)— Craig Silva (@craignb) September 29, 2014And The Sinclair finally responded:@lukeoneil47 @craignb @Weezer @cplavin Hard to make $500 off tickets when the order is cancelled. pic.twitter.com/XOXbO9gDuL— The Sinclair (@TheSinclair) September 29, 2014Boom.
