Kid Rock: Can you say Ticket Scalper?
Posted on December 8, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Or rather can you say that Kid rock is mad at those ticket brokers out there? Saying that they have bought a bunch of tickets for cheap and then jacked up the prices to his birthday bash concert. You now it happens not only with his concerts but with many other concerts that you will find around the country or world.
As the country rocker and hip hopper pointed out he would love to get those scalpers and confront them. He’s tired of them swooping in and buying a bunch of the lower priced tickets and turning around and selling them at a higher price for a nice profit. Instead he wants the people to be able to enjoy the lower prices that are offered, instead of like he said, “Like someone is beating up a close friend or family member”.
Those tickets flew out like hot cakes for that January 15th concert that will be offered in his home town of Detroit at Ford Field. There were a total of 45,000 tickets out to be sold and well they were gone in the first 19 minutes. How many of those were actually to real fans, it isn’t really said but according to Kid’s comment he feels that enough of them went to scalpers who will turn around and take more money out of another person’s pocket.
It’s a shame that when concert prices are already so darn high that you have to worry whether you’re looking at a reliable source to purchase your tickets from. How do you know when you are getting a great deal or that you just happen to have found a broker who isn’t’ charging as much as another one.
Sure would be interesting to see what would happen if Kid Rock did get his wish and was able to confront those brokers who’ve made plenty of money off of his ticket sales. Because in just the last 14 months for tickets in Detroit only he’s sold more than 180,000 of them.
Profit is a nice thing, but really unless you’re the one making it it’s not a great thing anymore.
