Free Bon Jovi tickets fetching $1,500

Bon Jovi's concert in Central Park this Saturday is free. But that isn't stopping some scalpers from selling tickets for as much as $1,500 - despite a warning they cannot be resold.

The New York Post reports it found 267 listings on eBay on Monday for the sold-out concert. The prices ranged from 99 cents to $1,500.

New York City has distributed 60,000 tickets to the concert, with each person limited to two freebies.

The performance is billed as a prelude to the July 15 All-Star baseball game, which will highlight the final season at the old Yankee Stadium.

Kimberly Spell, a spokeswoman for NYC Marketing, says lawyers will be contacting eBay officials to make them aware of the situation.
