Tom Waits is auctioning off five pairs of premium tickets to shows in four cities along his current Glitter and Doom tour to benefit five charities. Shows included are ones in Phoenix, AZ (June 17-18), Houston, TX (June 22), Columbus, OH (June 28), and Atlanta, GA (July 5). The auctions begin on June 11 at 10 am PDT at TicketMaster.com and will end on June 13 at noon PDT for the Phoenix dates while the other three auctions will end on June 19 at noon PDT.

“Some folks prefer to pay more, you get a good seat, a good tax write off and a good feeling for helping for your needy neighbors,” said Waits in a statement. “It’s scalping for charity.”

While each of these four shows has been sold out, Waits held back these choice seats in order to donate the proceeds to the charities.
