Scalpers?
I'd say craigslist in the US but that doesn't seem too active here.

There's at least one auction on Ricardo:

Re: How can I get tickets for a sold out event ?

it depends if you live near the venue. To tell you the truth I have never seen a concert where they were not selling tickets in front of the venue shortly before the concert. When I was young and did not want to pay the full price I always waited outside the venue until the prices dropped. You just have to be patient. Wait as long as you can, the prices are usually the lowest once the support act has already started with the show. People you bought a ticket but don't want to go just want to get rid of them. This has always worked for me so far

Good luck!

there also seem to sell tickets here http://www.worldticketshop.de/lander/schweiz (note: I just googled NAS Konzert Schweiz and that was the first link provided. I have never used that service before but maybe it's worth a try as well).

Re: How can I get tickets for a sold out event ?

Ticketcorner.ch are not saying they're sold out - just that they are 'no longer deliverable' - i.e. too near to the date for them to post them. You may still be able to get them from a Post Office or train station with a Ticketcorner terminal behind the counter but I'm not sure.

Viagogo.ch are usually good for sold-out events or where you are looking for a particular seating area that has gone - but they don't have any tickets listed for this event. They offer a guarantee that the tickets sold are as promised.

Finally there is ricardo.ch - the online auction site - they have 2 auctions on at the moment for Nas/Damian Marley in Zurich, but they don't conclude until the 6th. You don't get a guarantee with these - you just have to rely on the feedback on the seller as with ebay.
