After tickets for the Tragically Hip in Vancouver sold out in minutes Friday morning, it appears they’re starting to show up on StubHub.com for up to $3,500 Canadian.
All prices are in US dollars on the site, and floor seats are listed for up to $2,700 USD.
A total of 648 tickets were on sale for the show at Rogers Arena on StubHub at the time of publication. This follows frustration fans felt on Monday after scalpers snapped up pre-sale tickets and sold them for a premium.
Once again, disappointed fans of The Hip are taking to social media to air their grievances.

The Tragically Hip announced they would be touring Canada for the last time after lead singer Gordie Downie’s was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Partial proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to The Sunnybrook Foundation, a hospital specializing in cancer treatments in Toronto.
Due to the charitable aspect, StubHub received criticism from fans after pre-sale tickets sold out and appeared on their secondary ticket sale site. In response, StubHub says they will now donate to The Sunnybrook Foundation as well.
