Ticket scalpers continue to make it nearly impossible for avid music fans to score great seats for their favorite artists. No matter what time a fan gets online to try to battle others for that prime location in a venue, the system behind the brokers and scalpers seems to prevail more often than not.
Well, Eric Church and his team are putting the kibosh on that to the best of their abilities with his 2017 Holdin’ My Own Tour. Evidently the astute group that Church works with figured out a way to track his ticket sales to the hands of scalpers, confiscate those seats, and resell them to supportive fans who want to enjoy his show; not make a buck off his music.
We identified a thousand tickets that were bought by scalpers- back on sale today,10 am local time for Brooklyn, Boston, and Sioux Falls.
