Ticket touts make Rory lose his Rag
RAG’N’BONE MAN has followed the likes of Adele and Ed Sheeran by calling for a crackdown on touts.
The singer, real name Rory Graham, said it was unfair that fans were forced to pay over the odds by resale sites that buy up gig tickets as soon as they become available.
‘When tickets come out, you see a spike in sales and, in the pit of my stomach, I hope it’s not touts but I know it is,’ he sighed. ‘I get heartbreaking messages from people who can’t afford tickets at inflated prices. I’m trying to talk to people who sell my tickets to do something because it’s not right that a £15 ticket costs hundreds.’
The 32-year-old added: ‘It’s not the crime of the century but someone has to come up with a system that makes it more and more difficult.’
