I don’t know how big of an issue it is, but this story on ticket scalping was prominently displayed in the South China Morning Post the other day:

 Touts snap up tickets as Hong Kong fans queue overnight for chance to see Dayo Wong.  Scalpers operating in city despite leader’s promise to crack down on practice, which leaves fans facing exorbitant fees

"The promise by Hong Kong’s leader to clamp down on the black market for show tickets appears to have done little to deter the city’s ticket touts."
