Noel Rock TD has called on Fine Gael to introduce anti-touting legislation, saying that "(the) exploitation of fans needs to Stop right now. Legislation is sorely needed here which is why I am lobbying government to enact my touting proposals as soon as possible."
"If we Wannabe good legislators, we’ve got to buck this trend. Tickets for the gig are already selling for €450 on Viagogo, the main facilitator of touting. This is far Too Much. You’d need to be Posh Spice to afford this Scary price."
