Anger over program from Michael Gudinski's memorial being sold on eBay

Anger over program from Michael Gudinski's memorial being sold on eBay

A program from Michael Gudinski’s state memorial has reportedly surfaced on eBay.

Bids for the program shaped like a double vinyl album had reached $200 on Sunday, the Herald Sun reported.

Former employees at Gudinski’s Mushroom Group took to social media to vent their frustration.

“That is just beyond. Disgusting,” wrote one former worker.

“People are seriously f***ed. Just so disgraceful and disrespectful. So mad about all of this,” said another.

One woman claimed some people at the state memorial were collecting programs for the purpose of reselling them.

“If there’s no personal relationship they see a transactional opportunity.”

On Monday, after online complaints about the program being for sale, the listing disappeared from eBay.

Gudinski died suddenly on March 2 at age 68.

The promoter and record label boss was a towering figure in Australian entertainment, with Mushroom expanding into touring, publishing, booking agencies and film and TV production.

A state memorial for Gudinski was held at Rod Laver Arena on March 24, where each guest received a commemorative program.
