Garth Tix Scalpers to Help Nashville, Too

Tix resale site stubhub.com saw a flood of Garth Brooks flood relief tickets show up on its site, so the company has decided to donate its cut to flood relief victims, too, according to the Nashville Business Journal.

As you know, Garth is doing nine concerts to help the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee help flood victims. But more than 2,600 of those tix have shown up on StubHub, listing for as much as $900.

Not much anyone can do about folks making a buck for themselves off a flood-relief show, but StubHub announced it won’t be joining them.

The Website is giving its usual commission to the same charity.

“In keeping with the original intent of the concert, we want to be sure that any StubHub profits from Garth Brooks’ show go directly to Tennessee families,” StubHub president Chris Tsakalakis said in a news release.

That could mean as much as another $100,000 raised.
