Briefly, Iron Maiden are following the trend of artists fed up of touts ripping off fans by trying to amend the system of selling tickets and ensuring they go to fans not just greedy ****s looking to make a quick buck.

Should it prove a success then sure sport has to follow suit...

Good to hear. This is the frustrating thing with the touting industry, the idea nothing can be done to eliminate it is arse gravy. There are countless measures such as those mentioned that can be done. Promoters, the government and bands choose not to, and anyone arguing otherwise is lying through their teeth.

Matchroom Boxing and the IBF World Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua MBE have both agreed to extend their long-standing partnerships with the world’s largest ticket marketplace, StubHub.


Matchroom Boxing and Anthony Joshua will continue to transparently list face value tickets on StubHub. StubHub will also serve as the Official Ticket Marketplace for all Matchroom Boxing and Anthony Joshua fights. StubHub will continue to have a broad range of branding, digital, social and activation rights, including access to Anthony for promotional video content, building on the success of the No Hype video released in November 2015.
For the first time, Matchroom Fight Pass members will be able to purchase face value tickets directly through StubHub during a pre-sale window ahead of each bout covering Matchroom’s stable of boxers including the undefeated Joshua.

Delighted to hear the Pixies have done so too. Excellent band although their new stuff is a bit pish compared to the seminal stuff off Doolittle and Surfer rosa in the 80s.

Well done mochyn, you're now in my top ten current favourite posters.

Agree re. The Pixies, love the old stuff, the new stuff, no deal. (See what I did there)
