MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Cavalia is warning ticket buyers that swarms of online scalpers are selling regular priced tickets for an inflated price.

“We’ve dealt with scalpers inflating our prices in the past, but it’s gotten out of hand,” said Jean-David Pelletier, tour publicist for Cavalia.

Cavalia spokeswoman Danielle Smith says scalpers are posting cheap or discounted tickets on several websites, when in fact they’re priced higher than Cavalia’s Web site.

The sites include: shop.ticketluck.com, stubhub.com, ticketnest.com, excite.com, gotickets.com and cavaliaminneapolis.com

“Our base ticket price is $64.50 on our site and on ticketnest.com that same exact ticket is selling for $114,” said Smith. “A lot of these sites are double or triple our pricing. For the price your buying our cheapest ticket on their site, you could buy the most expensive ticket on our site.”

Smith says many times people will search Google.com for Cavalia and number of scalper sites will pop up. They’re now working with Google to remove the scalper sites from the top of search lists.

The only site with accurately priced tickets is Cavalia’s website.

    Its not difficult to get tickets for many things if you put a little effort into it, when they are released, often times I get tickets cheaper from scalpers because they buy to many of them.

    The reason they don’t show up is because their main landing page on their website is in french and you need to select English once inside. Google won’t rank it above the other sites because the language does not match the user’s language who is searching, Google knows Minneapolis = English. For some reason their English version site is not being indexed. The other reason is simply the “scalper” sites are doing a better job at marketing themselves online. You just don’t talk to Google and have them move you where you want, that is 100% inaccurate.
