What are they trying so hard to hide?

We have just been informed that Viagogo are currently at the High Court in a last minute attempt to prevent Channel 4's Dispatches programme from being aired tonight (23rd February 2012).

It will be an absolute travesty if they get it but this new action smacks of desperation and simply makes you question what on earth they are trying to hide, we will update you as soon as we know the result.

The 11th hour appeal which saw Viagogo claiming that the programme would damage their commercial interests has been thrown out by the judge. Common sense has won this time round and we will all now get the chance to see what really happens...roll on 9pm...

Are the touts days numbered? just how deep is the promoter involvement?

Well - tonight's programme didn't show us anything we didn't already know but I suspect a number of music fans might be quite surprised by the whole unethical ethos of both Viagogo and Seatwave.

Both Viagogo and Seatwave who clearly have little in the way of morals are advertising tickets for the Teenage Cancer Trust at exhorbitant prices.

If the touts haven't run to the hills yet let's hope they do soon.

Touting exposed big time, the question is what happens next?
