New laws will ban ticket-touting and stop people from re-selling tickets at massively inflated prices.
In details just revealed, the proposed legislation would ban the above-face value resale of tickets for sporting and entertainment events in venues with a capacity of 1,000 or over.
It would also ban bot-software used to purchase tickets in bulk.
The legislation will also ban the unauthorised transfer and use of tickets for matches and official events taking place in Ireland during the EURO 2020 Championship.
The Business Minster, Heather Humphreys, said it is "wrong that people who make no contribution to sport or music can profit from the resale of tickets for sell-out matches and shows."
"In doing so, they deprive genuine fans of the opportunity to attend these events, and the time has come to put a stop to it", she said.
Noel Rock, the Dublin TD who began the push for a change in the law surrounding concert tickets, described the legislation proposed as "ambitious and sensible".
He said he has "no doubt that for sports and music fans, this legislation will be a game changer."
