Kid Rock Admits to Scalping TicketsApr 24, 2013 -- 9:00am
- So Kid Rock is making an honest effort to provide his concerts to his fans at an affordable price. He’s kicking off the $20 Best Night Ever Tour and all tickets are, you guessed it, 20 bucks. He’s even making sure concessions are provided at an affordable price. But is this something he’s doing to clear his conscience? Maybe. In a recent interview, he admitted to scalping his own tickets to increase profit saying, “I’m going to tell people, a lot of artists already do it. I think I’ve been guilty of it in the past, too. We take some of our tickets, we put them on StubHub, overcharge with what the market determines they’re worth … I’m taking 1,000 of them and I’m scalping them.” Well, that’s discouraging.
- And you can’t buy Kenny Chesney’s new album just yet, but you can listen to the whole thing online. Chesney is streaming “Life on a Rock” at iTunes now. The lead single “Pirate Flag” is already a hit and the other nine tracks look to follow suit.
