Raise your Pitchforks! Those ticket scalpers are at it again. Looks like re-sellers have gobbled up all the seats for Collins’ upcoming shows.

In a matter of seconds everything was sold out and available on re-sellers sites at inflated prices. Needless to say fans were fighting angry. Buyers looking for tickets on Ticketmaster are now redirected to its official ticket reselling site ‘Get Me In,’ where prices range from £290 to £2200.

Is it Greed or business? One thing’s for sure real fans will have to fork out crazy prices. There are some people who will go no matter how high the tickets are and re-sellers are counting on this.

Collins has a five night schedule at London’s Royal Albert Hall in June and dates in Cologne and Paris.

The tour is named after his new autobiography, ‘Not Dead Yet.’

Collins has said that after these shows he’ll go off and have a nap before planning anything else but it’s a good bet he’ll return for more shows and he’s been very public about the chance for a Genesis reunion – where the same thing would happen to tickets.
