A couple paid $670 for four tickets to a Miley Cyrus concert in 2007. The North Carolina couple paid three times the face value.
So what did these crazy Miley fans do? They sued Stubhub – saying it’s illegal to sell a ticket for more than $3 over face value.
Luckily, the judges had half of brain and threw the case out of court. The judges saidStubhub did nothing illegal.

It turns out the handicap parking space Chris was using was actually his spot assigned to his condo unit. A judge has decided he had every right to park there, reports TMZ. However, the remaining tickets were for other infractions which he will be responsible for paying.
Still, that’s not as bad as it could have been. And we have to admit, Chris was right about this one.
A Mexican newspaper report on this matter has been roughly translated by Uproxx:
The black market of the Internet to get tickets for the concert of Justin Bieber on the Internet has reached the point of offering the first sex in exchange for a concert ticket, as published by the portal sdpnoticias.com.
Real scenes of hysteria were posted on YouTube by girls who could not get a ticket. Now things have gone to another level. According to that reported by the newspaper El Norte, a girl has even offered its first time in exchange for a ticket to see the Canadian artist.
“My virginity for a ticket to Justin Bieber, urgeee me,” wrote a user’s social network Facebook.
In addition, some “vivales” have used to seek to change tickets in exchange for the company of a girl, the same newspaper reported.
Below is a TV report of crazy Mexican girls crying after they couldn’t get tickets. This is Biebermania on a new level.
An Ontario man is facing a felony charge in Chicago for allegedly making up a story about being robbed of tickets to the final Oprah show tapings, reports CTV.
44-year-old Robert Spearing told police he was beaten and robbed of the tickets on Tuesday by two men. However, the police said he later admitted to making up the story to avoid telling his wife they had travelled to Chicago without tickets.
Police allege Spearing cut his own forehead with a rock and scraped his hands on the sidewalk to mimic injuries.
Spearing was charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report and was ordered held pending a hearing next week.
This is so ridiculous. I mean, really? You’d cut yourself with a rock to avoid telling your wife you didn’t get Oprah tickets? Jesus, celebrities definitely bring out the crazy in people. I’m sure your wife would have forgave you. Would she be a little pissed? Yes. It’s Oprah’s final show. But a mad wife is better then a crime charge. Good job.
Rod Stewart will begin a two year residency on August 24 at Las Vegas’ Colosseum at Caesars Palace, reports Billboard.
The first 18 concerts of ‘Rod Stewart: The Hits’ will go on sale May 15. Stewart is joining Celine Dion and Elton John, who both perform at Caesars Palace as well.
Stewart says the show will be “90 percent songs that people know,” including ‘Maggie May,’ ‘The First Cut Is the Deepest’ and ‘You’re in My Heart.’ The songs were performed at the Colosseum when he played at the 4,100-seat venue in November.
“It’s a rock’n'roll show,” Stewart says. “We’ll try to give the people what they want, which are the songs that made me famous, plus a few surprises. There won’t be any magicians or midgets, just a good rock show.”
A 13-piece band will back Stewart, whose shows will be presented by AEG Live. That way, he says, “I’ve got the lineup to (make changes) — all the mandolins and guitars. We’ll throw in something from, say, ‘Gasoline Alley,’ maybe even ‘Gasoline Alley.’”
Stewart recently wrapped his Heart & Soul Tour with Stevie Nicks and is currently working on a blues album with guitarist Jeff Beck. Stewart’s contract with J Records recently expired, making him a free agent, so Stewart and Beck are recording the album without a label attached.
It seems like whenever artists need an extra kick or revival of their music career, they take up residency in Vegas. It’s a smart move, and I’m sure this will be great for Stewart’s career.
I personally think Britney Spears should think of taking up residency in Vegas. Steady hours, an extra boost to her career, and the town is all about flashy lights and over-the-top spectacles. It’s perfect for her!
Britney Spears will be hosting a charity dinner for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, reports E Online.
The pop star may be getting ready to kick off her Femme Fatale tour next month, but that doesn’t stop her from having a heart of gold.
Spears will be hosting a fancy dinner next week, titled ’An Evening of Southern Style’ on May 11 in Beverly Hills. The sit-down dinner at a private residence will benefit the St. Bernard Project, an organization that continues to help Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
The group has already rebuilt homes for more than 350 families with the help of 32,000 volunteers, but as we all know, there is much more to be done.
“I am so honored to be a party of this cause,” Spears said. “Louisiana will always be a part of my soul.”
Spears won’t be the head chef in charge, but her professional chef dad Jamie will be. Papa Spears’ menu will include Louisiana shrimp and grits, jambalaya and soft shell crab fish fry, among other things.
For tickets, visit stbernardproject.org. The United Way for the Greater New Orleans Area has agreed to match the first $100,000 in donations.
What a great cause and idea – just goes to show that Spears has a real genuine heart. Despite all her crazy antics and questionable fashion choices, she is a nice, normal, southern girl deep down.
The comeback queen kicks off her tour on June 16 in Sacramento, California with guest star Nicki Minaj. The 26-city gig finishes up August 13 in Toronto (which is when I will be attending, SO excited.)
Charlie Sheen’s upcoming mini-tour to Chicago and Detroit has sold out in under 18 minutes, says TMZ.
The show, called “My Violent Torpedo of Truth,” set a Ticketmaster record this weekend as tickets were snapped up like hotter-than-hotcakes. Sheen’s camp is looking into adding more dates to the tour, as well as some additional stops in new cities.
Sheen’s website also claims that $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Red Cross to help victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
$1?! That’s a little skimpy considering some tickets are going for nearly 100 times that price!
This can’t be doing anything good for Sheen’s delusional huge ego… In fact, we’re sick of him already.
If Charlie Sheen comes to your city, will you be going to see him?
Did you have hopes of getting tickets to Coachella this year? Well if you haven’t heard, you are most likely out of luck. 75,000 VIP and general admission tickets were made available, but they are all spoken for. According to Paul Tollett, promoter for festival organizer Goldenvoice, it was the fastest sellout in the festival’s 12-year history
As can be seen in this article from PopEater, now people are making really stupid (yet funny) offers for tickets. Have a look at what can be found when you search for Coachella tickets on Craigslist.
Sorry, enough jokes. Here’s the scoop.
As CHARTattack.com reports, Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger has made headlines recently for firing his housekeeper, Arlene Morris.
The firing took place just a few days before Nickelback’s Vancouver concert on June 3. Morris says that Kroeger had promised her tickets to the show for her five songs, but took the offer back after she was fired.
To add insult to injury, Morris’ 11-year-old son was so sad over the events that he wrote a letter to the Vancouver Sun newspaper.
“[Eight] months were waiting and the day is just about here when my mom gets a call,” Morris’ son wrote. “Oh wow how hard that was, she tells us the tickets were cancelled guys im sorry and not only that he fires her too.”
“Well mr CHAD KRUGER WE dont think your cool and we took your stupid picture off our rockstar wall cause you dont deserve to sit up there with john lennon, mick jagger or bob dylan,” the letter continued.
Jonathan Simkin, Nickelback’s manager, told the Vancouver Province newspaper that Morris was fired for taking Kroeger’s girlfriend’s discarded clothes - an act that Morris denies. Simkin also said that Morris was not directly employed by Kroeger, but had actually been hired by a fellow employee. That same employee was apparently the one who decided to fire her.
