Have you ever had to pay above face value to get tickets for a gig?

Well, ticket touting may soon be a thing of the past in Ireland.

It's believed new laws to prevent it could be in place by this summer.

The Times Ireland Edition says a bill has been accepted by the Department of Business after months of negotiations.

It's understood it will ban the resale of tickets above face value...but there's a catch!

It will only happen for concerts where the artist performing accepts it.
