    They could be lying, i think that's why people are angry.

    Some are willing to prove they'll donate such as this one here

    Whether they will or not is a chance you take. But if people are so bothered, why don't they stop people selling the wrist bands for a profit?

    Interesting. I think people are just fickle.

    Hmm, I think they have the right to sell them if they want, it's their tickets, I mean is Live 8 really losing anything? Besides better to have someone who really wants to go to the concert go than someone who doesn't really care and just sticks their tickets on Ebay. But yeah 1.1million is a bit much... :rofl:

    Whoah. is this a joke or something? Are those actual auctions? And are the people really willing to pay that amount of money to see the concert? God I wish I'd texted to get tickets now.

    Oh for goodness sake NO!

    People are bidding stupid amounts to stop people who honestly will PAY for the tickets actually bidding. There plan was to bid a stupid amount, when the bid closes, just refuse to pay up. It's agains the law, but they reckon they can get away with it. Alternatively they will withdraw their bids in the last second so that they go for much less then the sellers want

    all in all it's an attempt to tell people who are selling them that they are tight cheap ******* who shouldnt be profitting off of this

    i personally wouldn't sell tickets for such a thing on ebay, but the concert isn't actually about making money, it's more to do with raising awareness.

    Why shouldn't they profit?! The Live 8 organisers aren't losing any money from these eBay sales - they could have chosen to sell all of the tickets for an extortionate price and people would have given their money willingly, but they chose not to do it like that. All the way through this, they've said it's not about raising money.

    I really don't see what's so wrong with this - the ticket sellers are just meeting a demand, and if people want to pay thousands for a ticket I don't see why they shouldn't be allowed to do so. If they want to give the money to charity, that's obviously a good thing, but they shouldn't be forced to.

    It's the sheer amount of tickets that are up for sale that is more shocking than anything... it's as if it was all premeditated.

    Well, when Live 8 was announced, how many of us were thinking 'I bet hundreds of tickets will turn up on eBay'? If I'd had my wits about me, I would have done the same thing.
