    SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOUR OF TICKET RESALE WEBSITES

    Promoters of a charity gig organised to raise money for victims of the Japanese tsunami have criticised certain ticket websites for allowing people to resell tickets for profit.

    SJM, who are the benefit's producers alongside the British Red Cross, have labelled the secondary ticket sites "highly distasteful".

    The show at London's Brixton Academy features Liam Gallagher's Beady Eye, Primal Scream, Blur's Graham Coxon, Richard Ashcroft, Paul Weller and The Coral.

    SJM issued a statement saying: "We strongly disapprove of profiteering from the misery and suffering of the people in Japan."

    Tickets for the show taking place on Sunday 3 April are being sold for more than double their original value after they went on sale on 25 March.

    SJM said they had asked companies involved in the secondary/reselling ticket market to "delist the event".

    "It is very disappointing that one secondary reseller and eBay continue to offer these charity fundraiser tickets," they added.

    Please make a donation to the British Red Cross and support the people of Japan.
