Jackson Memorial Tickets Selling for Thousands on eBay

The tickets to Michael Jackson’s Los Angeles memorial tomorrow are free, and were never up for sale. The only problem is that only 8,750 of them were given out, and 1.6 million people registered for them.

That’s left a lot of people upset that they weren’t picked. But they could spend upwards of $15,000 on tickets if they really wanted to go!

Some fans that were lucky enough to get their names drawn have now put the tickets to the memorial up on eBay. They’re looking to make a quick buck off of the tickets they never even bought, knowing that there’s probably a huge Michael Jackson fan who will spend the thousands they’re asking for.

They’d better act fast however, because eBay claims they’ll be taking the listings down. A rep for the company said, "Any tickets for the memorial service will be taken down.”

But Staples Center spokesman Michael Roth said today that ticket scalping was completely out of their control. He said, "Theoretically, the second wristband can be sold.”
