Condé Nast Fashion Rocks Tix Spur ‘Bidding Wars’?

We’re sure Daddy Yankee will tear down the house and all, but something doesn’t seem quite right.

Today’s Keith Kelly column delivers this curious report:

FASHION Rocks, the annual musical extravaganza staged by Condé Nast at Radio City Music Hall, has sparked tremendous Internet bidding wars for tickets. One Web site last week was offering orchestra seats for $8,182. This week, others further back in the crowd were going for $4,000. Ticket prices originally ranged from $104.50 to $254.50.

On eBay, prices for tickets were nowhere close to $8,182. Of the 22 auctions, just one, for a pair of mezzanine seats for the September 7 event, even registered bids — specifically, seven, with the top bid of $192.50, or $96.25 per ticket.

Not exactly our definition of a “bidding war.”
