BEND, Ore. (AP) -- Bend concertgoers expect to pay for what they get. A Dave Matthews concert this summer appears to be the best of what's around. But what would they say if they knew online tickets were fakes?

The Bulletin in Bend reports ( ) the Les Schwab Amphitheater has had more fake tickets and tickets being sold above face value for this summer's Dave Matthews concert than any show in its 12-year history.

Eight thousand tickets were originally available. Half went to the Warehouse, the Dave Matthews Band fan club. The other half, subject to e-ticket scamming, could let some people down.

It's all a little too much for Republican state Rep. Julie Parrish, who plans to reintroduce an anti-ticket-resale bill in 2015.

The ticket-buy two-step has other venues shying away from e-tickets.
