WINNIPEG — Tickets for The Tragically Hip’s farewell tour in Winnipeg sold out immediately.

The tickets went on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. CT, and were snagged up in less than a minute, leaving thousands of fans disappointed.

“Nobody’s happy, it’s complete chaos,” Janet Carriere said. Carriere had four people trying to get her tickets, but was out of luck.

“When they exploit a Canadian band that is potentially on tour for the last time because their front man is dying, it’s even worse.”

Almost immediately the tickets started popping up on resale websites for hundreds of dollars above asking price. As of 10:15 a.m., there were already 1,061 tickets available on StubHub for the Winnipeg concert.

Resale tickets range from $100 to $3,000.
