Mikey and Gerard Way spoke to the BBC about the profit limit proposed on UK gig tickets. Labour MP Sharon Hodgson is proposing that anyone reselling tickets can only make a 10% profit on the original price they paid. Mikey and Gerard comment that gig tickets should only be resold by fans at face value.

“US rockers My Chemical Romance, who headline this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals in August, believe fans should respect each other and only sell a ticket at face value if they can’t make it.
Lead singer Gerard Way said: ‘I feel like, if you can’t go, charge what you paid for it. Because that’s really what it’s worth even if it does sell out.’
Bass guitarist Mikey Way agreed: ‘There’s nothing worse than getting gouged by a scalper (tout). I remember being younger and paying ridiculous prices.'”
