GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) - Tickets to Jimmy Buffett's free concert
in Alabama to show support for the oil spill-stricken Gulf Coast
have been grabbed up quickly and begun showing up for sale on eBay
for more than $100 each.
That prompted eBay officials to release a statement Wednesday
saying they would not allow the tickets to be sold on their site.
Alabama Gov. Bob Riley and Gulf Coast residents were among those
complaining after the 35,000 free tickets were taken in a matter of
minutes Wednesday morning and then began showing up for sale by
Buffett and other stars will perform in Gulf Shores to support
residents and businesses hurt by the massive oil spill in the Gulf
of Mexico that has fouled the water and beaches.
