Albert Hall Reverses Ban On Trustees Touting Seats
This has happened according to this report in the Telegraph.
It’s not the touting that annoys me, it’s the fact that sometimes you go to a venue and because those that own the seats aren’t interested in what’s going on, the seats are empty. You get this at Wembley, when there are some of the play-off finals, which those who’ve bought expensive trances of seats, feel are beneath them to watch. Why can’t these seats be rounded up and say given to kids in the town and perhaps a guardian each, many of whom will never get the chance to go to an iconic venue.
To me every empty seat is a disgrace, except possibly when say Norwich and Manchester United are playing, neither of whom, I’d watch, especially if you plied me with prawn sandwiches.
So perhaps if the touting is controlled, this would be to the benefit of all and sundry.
