Keith Urban

"When country music superstar Keith Urban announced his latest project -- a charity benefit to raise money for the Country Music Hall of Fame -- Nashville's music community was quick to sing his praises.

"To have someone of Keith's stature step up and do this today -- and who all he's bringing to play in October -- is overwhelming to us," Vince Gill told reporters at the time

The benefit -- "We're All for the Hall," as it was known -- was advertised as "all tickets just $25."

But even before tickets went on sale to the general public, they showed up on scalping web sites like Ticketmaster's TicketsNow -- listed, in some cases, for hundreds of dollars each.

"When you have a highly desirable product with incredible demand, all kinds of shenanigans go on," said music industry analyst Bob Lefsetz, who writes The Lefsetz Letter blog." [NewsChannel5]
