Title: (RED) Auction tickets
Post by: northernscum on March 16, 2009, 11:27:37 AM
So I wonder how much will these go for and how much will actually go striaght to those in need. I personally think its an ok idea but it should be the 250 dollar seats with proceeds going straight to the campaign. With that said it would of been cool to have those seats as well go to the fan club members.

They've posted that they'll start bidding at 95E and min. 5E increments.  So I'd imagine that the 95 goes to the band/promoter/venue and the rest goes to (RED).   Having a fixed price limits the amount raised  - could be much higher, and keeping it within the fanbase & regular paying fans, the charity loses out.  The stadiums have plenty of seats and GA tix for fans, imo & its win win for everyone.

Be careful not to buy these RED tickets (or any other tickets for that matter) on an iPhone.  I heard that Paul McGuinness will track you down.

And don't think they can't tell.  They can tell.  Blackberries only, please!!!
