Ticket scalpers have apparently found a new revenue stream — somehow acquiring, then reselling Red Rocks concert tickets that were expressly intended for disabled concertgoers.
“Well it makes me sick,” said concert promoter Chuck Morris, who learned of the phenomena through a CBS4 investigation. “The law was made to protect the disabled and the bad guys figured out a way to get around it.”
The issue came to light through Matt Feeney, a Winter Park resident who broke his back in 1988 and is a paraplegic. Feeney is confined to a wheelchair but enjoys going to Red Rocks shows. He was excited when he found out that one of his favorite bands, The String Cheese Incident, was booked into Red Rocks for three nights in July.
