BEND, Ore. (AP) - Bend concertgoers expect to pay for what they get. A Dave Matthews concert this summer appears to be the best of what’s around. But what would they say if they knew online tickets were fakes?

The Bulletin in Bend reports (https://bit.ly/1q2UIO7 ) the Les Schwab Amphitheater has had more fake tickets and tickets being sold above face value for this summer’s Dave Matthews concert than any show in its 12-year history.

Eight thousand tickets were originally available. Half went to the Warehouse, the Dave Matthews Band fan club. The other half, subject to e-ticket scamming, could let some people down.

It’s all a little too much for Republican state Rep. Julie Parrish, who plans to reintroduce an anti-ticket-resale bill in 2015.

The ticket-buy two-step has other venues shying away from e-tickets.
