Popular beat combo Arctic Monkeys have declared jihad on ticket touts by limiting supplies of tickets for their forthcoming tour.
Following the almost immediate sell-out of the pre-sale tickets for their April tour, the Arctic Monkeys have made the following statement:
"We are very aware of the growing problem of ticket touts acquiring tickets and re selling them at vastly inflated cost through eBay and other auction sites. The sales of tickets will be monitored"
So basically, in person you can buy two tickets and via phone/interweb you can buy four. If you have more than three friends, then you'd better starting dumping some folk!
Tickets go onsale at 6pm tonight (2nd Feb) and you'll find the dates about 40 pixels below.

DiScuss: How cute is Alex, the singer? Is anyone going? Can I come with you? Would this be better if the headline was 'Monkeys vs. Trouts'? Would that be grammatically correct?
