Eric Church’s War on Ticket Scalpers [POLL]
Eric Church doesn’t like ticket scalpers and he’s fighting back!
According to CMT:
Eric found out that over 900 tickets to his show in Minneapolis in September were bought by scalpers so he cancelled those tickets and then put them back on sale for his fans.
“A lot of acts just want to sell as many tickets as they can, and they don’t care who they sell them to,” Church said. “I want my fans to be the ones who buy tickets to my shows, and I want scalpers to back off. I can’t stop ticket scalpers completely, but I can definitely make it harder for them.”
All ticket orders for Church’s tour will be closely scrutinized to avoid scalping. Tickets to his Minneapolis concert are being offered for as much as $847 on one ticket broker’s website.
We found out this morning that ticket scalping is legal in Texas, but not in Arkansas or Louisiana. Should ticket scalping be legal or illegal? Let us know!
