You Me At Six singer Josh to lobby ticket tout bill at the House Of Commons
The You Me At Six frontman will give evidence at the House of Commons on November 15th as part of a one-off session held by the Culture, Media and Sport Committee, which aims to pass through parliament an amendment to the Digital Economy Bill to stop the use of digital purchasing software by ticket touts. The session, which will consider a range of issues on the topic, will be available online at www.parliamentlive.tv.
Josh is the only musician taking part in the campaign and is very passionate about the cause, he adds “We are fighting the battle for fair prices for live music fans. Every artist's touring career is built on the passion and support of their fanbase. For those true supporters to be ripped off by secondary sites and being charged double, treble the face value for the right to see their favorite artists is unacceptable"
