Illegal parking tickets sold at RHCP show

I am so disgusted with the fact that I bought a legal and legit ticket for general admission parking from Computicket for RHCP Saturday the 2nd of February and on my travels there queuing in traffic for an hour I could not believe the amount of illegal tickets being sold on the street by over a 100 vendors. 

I never got to use my legitimate ticket because all the parking was full with all the illegal tickets that were sold.  I had to park about 3km away from the stadium in a very dark and unsafe spot along with a whole lot of other people.  Illegal tickets were being sold right in front of each metro cop parked along the roads literally in front of them. Of course nothing was done about this.  I am going back to Computicket and demanding a refund for my parking ticket purchased.

As for the events company that hosted and assisted at the stadium, they were absolutely useless and seemed to be getting paid to do absolutely nothing.  The people designated to assist with seating according to your ticket information did not even know where to tell you to go and obviously one had to find out for him or herself.

Corruption as far as being able to pay a R100 to get in to golden circle with the security and officials manning the checkpoints amazes me.  I am so demotivated and not interested to attend any event held at these stadiums as nothing will change.  As mentioned above our own Law and anti-corruption correspondents do nothing, so also makes one worry about ones security for the future in this country.
