Paul McCounterfeit Tickets

About two dozen fans at a Paul McCartney concert at Piedmont Park in Atlanta Aug. 15 faced problems at the gate when they discovered they were holding counterfeit tickets.

One concertgoer reportedly paid a scalper outside the park $100 for a pair of fake tickets before realizing he’d been duped. He was forced to pony up another $170 at the ticket booth for the real thing.

TM officials told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the number of counterfeit tix confiscated was relatively low for a show like McCartney’s, which drew about 40,000 fans.
