Trending Now

Toms Waits is raising money for charity by putting front-row tickets for his live shows up for auction, including dates in Dublin and Edinburgh.

Five pairs of tickets are available for one date in each city on his Glitter & Doom tour.

Tickets for all 15 concerts went on sale last month, with the best seats in each house held back for series of online auctions.

“Some folks prefer to pay more. You get a great seat, and a good feeling for helping some needy folks,” says Waits. “It’s scalping for charity.”

Access to the auction is through, which lists all the sales and when they close. The last auction finishes on July 25.

Tickets will be auctioned for the following concerts:

San Sebastian, Spain Auditorio Kursaal (July 12)
Barcelona Auditorium Forum (14, 15)
Milan Teatro Degli Arcimboldi (17,18,19)
Prague KCP (21, 22)
