It was kind of inevitable that this was going to happen, but some unscrupulous ticket scalping bros in Miami are trying to flip tickets to deadmau5' (aka Joel Zimmerman) 'free' show on Craigslist for upwards of 100 times the face value.
The tickets, which went on sale today at 2 pm EST, 'sold out' in less that a minute. There was a $1 service charge associated with each ticket, which is to be donated to Miami Children's Hospital.
Almost immediately, ticket scalpers who were able to secure tickets turned around and posted them for sale on Craigslist, with prices ranging from $10 to $150 each.
The free show was due to a recent incident in Miami where deadmau5 vowed never to return to the city after the nightclub Mansion seated bottle service patrons next to the DJ booth, forcing true fans to view the show from the back of the venue.
He was lured back to the city after a competing Miami nightclub, Space, offered to put on a free show and take care of any transportation costs for Zimmerman. The show is supposed to make sure that true mau5heads in the city get a chance to see their favorite rodent.
The show is set to take place at the Ice Palace on February 15th.
