Muse to Lead Fight Against Touts

Chris has been speaking on BBC Radio 5 about the band's idea to sell tickets on their own website in an attempt to combat touts...

As one of Britain's biggest live bands Muse have said they're investigating ways to ensure fans aren't tempted to use alternative outlets and buy only official, face value tickets to their shows.

Bassist Chris Wolstenholme said: "The one thing we were going to try and put in place - particularly for gigs abroad - was that people could buy tickets directly through the website.

"At least then they know it's totally legit. It's becoming more and more of a problem.

"It's something the bands have got to look at and they've got to put into play where you buy directly from the band rather than these agents. The bands have got to try and kick this whole scamming thing out."
