Toronto scalpers jack up prices to Danforth benefit concert

In today's edition of maddening news that surprises no one, it seems scalpers have now targeted tickets to the benefit show for the Danforth shooting

The concert, set for August 11 during Taste of the Danforth, is intended to raise funds for the Danforth Strong fund, which provides support for the victims and their families.

An eBay listing shows extremely-marked-up prices for resale tickets to the Danforth Strong benefit show. 

The tickets sold out on Ticketmaster almost instantly once they went live.

But now, websites like StubHub, eBay, kijiji, and more are being filled with listings for marked-up tickets to the charity show, which is being played by Billy Talent, PUP, and City and Colour. 

The original ticket price of $50 has been doubled, tripled, and more by the resellers. Some listings on eBay have reached close to $900 before noon. 

Maybe some of the resellers will donate the profits to the Danforth Strong fund, but we doubt it.

Oh, and if you want, you can do that right here.
