Yearwood Blasts Brooks Comeback Ticket Scalpers
Country singer Trisha Yearwood has hit out at ticket scalpers who are charging hugely inflated prices to her husband Garth Brooks' sold-out run of comeback concerts. Brooks is currently midway through nine gigs at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri and Yearwood is unhappy some online ticket agencies are charging fans up to $975 (GBP487.50) for a $31 (GBP15.50) seat. She says, "I hope they can shut that (ticket scalping) down. "One thing that Garth does, that I'm so proud of, is he tries so hard to see that the people who want to go to the shows can go for an affordable ticket price. "It always bugs me. You know some of those scalpers are going to get those tickets. I just hate it."
